Wild Weather… Great Seascapes!

6 02 2010

So this weekend I’m running my seascape workshop

During the week I start getting emails from participants who are concerned about the weather forecast. Yes, the forecast is for some pretty yucky weather, but I explained to the participants that this is fantastic.   Give me storms, clouds, and high seas any day of the week.  I’ll take that over clear skies or messy little clouds any time.

So because I’m going to be instructing and this weekend at the workshop, I thought I better go out for a dawn shoot this morning to get some photography out of my system.  So Kajo and I hiked out to Long Reef and were rewarded with a fantastic dramatic 360 degree stormy seascape.  We were perched out on some rocks with waves crashing all around us from high seas, and sky that was threatening to rain on us at any moment.   We didn’t get a single drop of rain as it turns out, but had a blast.

So don’t put your camera away when the forecast is crap… get your lazy ass out of bed and brave the elements (aham… Gavin)…..

I dunno if anyone will believe me when I say that it looks worse than it was 🙂

It was certainly exciting to battle the waves so early in the morning. Goes to show – it’s almost always worthwhile to drag your a** out of bed!
