Byron Bay…

What comes to mind when you think of Byron Bay, well for me it is a number of things as I have grown up surfing and living only an hours drive so I have made the trip south on a number of times. This particular trip I got to the Byron Lighthouse car park in complete darkness and began the walk up the hill to the spot I had in mind, waiting for the sun to rise but as the sky began to lighten I noticed that there was a mass of rain heading straight for me from behind the lighthouse so I packed up my camera leaving my tripod set up ready to go. It soon became clear that this rain was not your typical “she’ll be right” bit of drizzle but more of a its going to bucket down better leave and come back after it stops so I grabbed my tripod and headed back to the car somewhat disjointed and soaking wet. I started the car and put the heater on to get warm because I was soaked from head to toe and a few minutes later just as I was about to leave the rain died down and I saw the faintest hint of colour through the fogged up window.

It was on, I ran up the hill and set up in the same spot, fired off one roll (four images) and the light vanished not a single person around to witness the light show. This has happened to me a number of times and the few times that you pack up and leave generally are the best so I have learnt over the years that getting a little wet can sometimes be a blessing in disguise.

I hope you like this one… I love it!

2 Comments


This blog has been up almost a year now and it has been mainly to showcase new images and the such. I wont be doing anything radical to change the appearance of the blog or anything like that but more so making this blog more informative to the reader.

For starters, each month there will be an “Print of the Month” which will be available at a discounted rate. but along with the print of the month, I will be giving you an insight into some of the companies, products and services I use and recommend as well as the odd photo tip along the way. In the mean time this is an image taken from a different angle of the famous Q1 building in Surfers Paradise hope you like.

The change… you will have to wait and see but all I can say its a big one!!!
