Here is another view of the morning rock fishing. The photograph took a while to set up. The key here was to get the silhouettes of the fishermen in the background and beautiful textures and shades of rocks and water in the foreground. It took me 4 or 5 shots before I could balance the light properly. As you can see from the top right corner the sun was still low but quite strong.

Information for photographers: if you are confused by the effect not matching the exposure data: I have used ND8 filter for this capture.

Fisherman and an ocean wave


Rock fishing is a very popular form of fishing in Australia. However, as this photograph of a huge wave raising high above the fishermen demonstrates it can be a very dangerous activity. This photograph was taken soon after sunrise and the fishermen look straight in to the light of the morning sun may not even see a big wave like this coming his way. Luckily, this man was a very experienced fishermen and kept moving away from the edge of the rocks as each big wave set approached.
