Fisherman and an ocean wave

 on 


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.

Rain Cloud

Often when a photograph of a sunset or sunrise is posted the only reaction the photographer gets is “Oh, OK. Yet another sun rise”. From time to time weather phenomenons change that simple yet beautiful sunset or sunrise into something totally unique. Take this cloud formation which looks as if it had a clearly defined straight edge and the rain would pour over that edge. I have never seen a cloud formed like that. Not only was the rain coming from that edge but also behind it there was a beautiful sunset highlighting layers upon layers of Blue Mountains in the distance.
