Austinmer Beach, Illawarra, NSW

We've had another soaking this week, with some flooding on the south coast. The winds have howled as well. This led to warnings of dangerous conditions on the coast. Was I worried? Not a bit of it. The ocean and I have an understanding. When huge surf is reported, I go there with my camera. The surf immediately transforms into a millpond as soon as I flip the power switch on the Olympus.

In this case the ocean didn't notice me quickly enough so before it could flatten out completely I got this much diminished long distance shot of the Austinmer rock pool in which you can see the pink capped head of a surfer, and a couple of birds fronting the breaking waves.

So there are those even more insane than photographers along the coast?
