Surf Photography: Remarkable Caves

Here’s a few recent shots from another of my favourite passtimes, surf photography. Although I’m reluctant to get out of bed very early, I tagged along with a couple of my mates from Eaglehawk Neck last Saturday afternoon to chill out and see what I could capture.

While the surf itself was nothing to write home about particularly, by all reports it was genuinely fun.  While I’m not producing outstanding images as those seen by another local surf photographer, Stuart Gibson here’s a small collection form the day.
This also highlighted my need for a longer telephoto lens…

All the shots were taken at Port Arthurs, Remarkable Caves, quite a sight in themselves, and one of the Tasman Peninsulas many sight-seeing attractions.

The view from the rocks, just a small walk down the embankment, through the undergrowth from the main car-park and lookout.

Also note Cape Raoul in the distance, which was used as target practice by the British Navy in WWII.

This glass and steel plaque was designed, constructed and installed by a group of the local surfers and crew. In memory of one of our friends, Eli Horsman, who passed well before his time a few years ago. This was a favourite spot of his to surf, so this seemed a fitting location for a small memorial.

I need say no more….

    Seems like getting out of bed early paid off for you 🙂
