    Beautiful capture!!
  • David de Groot said:
    I do not know Sir - possibly the prospect of lugging your kit over potentially (although not actually) slippery rocks near potential (but not actual) sea spray ?
    Thanks :)

    I nearly copped some sea spray on (His Royal Majesty) Mamiya M645 and I was at the top of the cliffs! But your spot may have been more sheltered.
    I'll have to develop the roll of Velvia soon, though I don't expect much of worth to come from it.
    This is an awesome shot by the way.
  • David de Groot said:
    Yeah we were around the side of the head a bit, there was spray, but the predominant breeze blew it away from us. When I check the UV filter on the front of the lens later, there wasn't any sign of spray :)

    Thanks for lugging your kit and risking your life for us Dave... the results sure look worth every bit of effort!! Beautiful light... lovely silky water!!
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Paul - I need to organise another outing as this about wraps it up for shots from this location.

    There wasn't any sea spray (at least, not that I noticed) from this vantage point.
    Oddly enough, not many ventured down there. Only Gary, Dave, myself and maybe one or two others did.
  • David de Groot said:
    Yeah I think people were either a) worried about falling off, b) worried about spray, c) didn't realise it was there.

    Wow Dave, was this from the same shoot as before or have you ventured back?
  • David de Groot said:
    Same shoot Kane, just one I processed up and hadn't got around to posting yet.

    Awesome shot Dave. Damn you guys get some nice morning light in NSW.
  • Eng Yeap said:
    Wow ! Fantastic !
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Drew. I haven't shot in northern NSW before, but I wasn't disappointed :)
    Thanks Eng :)

    Breathtaking photo, nearly better than the previous ones published.
  • David de Groot said:
    Tough call eh? They're all pretty good in their own way, and all have a different mood/feel to them.
