Surfs up

On Monday afternoon the surf right along this coast increased in size. To paraphrase Banjo Paterson

“So all the cracks had gathered to the fray.
All the tried and noted riders from the coast near and far
Had mustered at the beachfront after lunch”

There were a lot of people out surfing, and all the carparks were full.

It was quite spectacular. However it also was raining heavily. This shot was taken from inside my car with the windscreen wipers on high and the airconditioning running to stop the windscreen fogging up.

    • I’m pretty pleased with that shot given that it was shot in the rain, and through a wet windscreen with the wipers going flat out. The softness seems to add to the effect.

    • Thanks. At the time I didn’t have many expectations of getting anything worthwhile as the rain was very heavy.
