Spring seemed to be taking ages coming this year, and then on Saturday morning we awoke to clear skies, a warm sharp morning and a reasonable swell running. Needless to say there was smiles and excitement all round. I caught these two cats loading up the vehicles on the vehicles. Unfortunately I left the lens on manual focus, and with the backlit scene I was hoping the camera was going to focus for me. After looking at the pics I am not too worried they aren’t sharp. I wear glasses- and sometimes I like to take my glasses off and be a bit unfocussed.
Yesterday saw a big lined up swell hit the coast. Temperatures remained around freezing, and a cold afternoon brought few surfers to tackle the shifting peak and variable sizes that broke down the point. Those who did brave it were well rewarded with long waves and big open faces, as well as some deep dark pits if you wanted to stall through the inside section.
