Great composition Ian. The framing is really nice. I like it.
I appreciate your affirmation Tom.
It was a glorious day after a week of very wet weather, and the conditions out at sea had been pretty wild, so it was big swell that was arriving on the beaches this day. - last Saturday.
Lovely vista Ian ,nicely framed,a good addition to GE,Cheers Craig :)
Thanks for the compliments, Craig. Rather like one of your recent pics from a headland.
Kind Regards, Ian
Idylic seascape Ian, I feel at home right here.
Thanks Jim. This image reminds me a bit of Filey and Scarborough, too. It was a big swell day that day, and safer in the harbour than outside.
Wonderful shot Ian !! Your NSW shots are beautiful and very interesting for me because some members of my family are living there.
Well that is great news, Luud, for perhaps it increases the possibility that you may make it to this corner of the world! I notice that a Riphagen lives in Carrington St, Mayfield (Necastle).
I promise to keep uploading images of NSW, and to keep them as fresh and as creative as I can.
Thanks for your appreciation, Luud.
THIS WAS MY WORLD BACK IN THE SIXTIES,RON.
BACK THEN SURFERS WERE NOT RESPECTED AS THEY ARE NOW.THE CLUBBIES AT BUNGAN WERE OUR ENEMIES THEY WOULD TRY TO CONFISCATE YOUR SURFBOARD. SURFBOARDS WERE SUPPOSED TO BE REGISTERED THEN.THE CLUBBIES WERE ALL FROM ST IVES.CRACKER NIGHT WAS OPEN WARFARE WITH 2D BUNGERS. LOCALS AGAINST CLUBBIES.
THE BIG SAND DUNES AS THEY WERE HAVE DISAPPEARED NOW.
THE WAVES LINED UP IN PERFECTION HERE ONE DAY IN THE EARY SIXTIES WITH A NW WIND AND GIANT EXTREME NORTH CYCLONE SWELL. THE PERFECT WAVES BROKE FROM NEWPORT REEF TO HALFWAY ALONG THE BEACH.THE REST OF THE WAVE HITTING THE SOUTHERN HEADLAND.A BIG STORM BACK THEN HAD WAVES CLOSING OUT BREAKING FROM THE TIP OF NEWPORT REEF RIGHT ACROSS TO WARRIEWOOD.GODDARDS JETTY AT PALM BEACH IN PITTWATER HAD SIX FOOT WAVES BEING REFLECTED FROM MACKERAL BEACH BEACH.
They were the days, Ron*. Perhaps the similar rivalries have occurred on other beaches, Maroubra and Cronulla for example, in the period since then.
Thanks for the graphic description of the surf that was produced by the interplay of NE swell and NW winds... and for the notes of the history of surfing.
Lyn Aspey writes a Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog. As she uses the headlands and beaches of Sydney's northern beaches as a background for her writing, she has chosen this view from Bungan Headland to illustrate her recent blog, Barrenjoey Jump.
There is a novel called The Bungana Boys.
Thanks Ronald. I do not know of it. I'll start with a websearch to see if I might find it.
