Sugar Loaf Northern Drama

Here is another perspective from the other day at Sugarloaf. I sat at this spot for some time as the drama was simply mesmerising. Some of the waves exploding were literally throwing up water 10’s of metres in the air and I could help think how helpless you would be if in amongst all that water movement!

No wonder people die when wash off rocks down there…the power of Mother Nature!

    Lovely, and as you said, very dramatic πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks Eden and thanks also for being such a regular.

    It’s a winner Mark, shows the power of the sea very well. I think i like this one better than the one a couple of posts ago!

  4. Cool Tim,

    Thanks for that!

    Just as well it wasn’t really rough Mark! I have seen waves breaking right over the top of the big rock. However Sugarloaf Rocks are probably most dangerous on calmer days when people venture further out, and get caught by king waves. On days like that the danger is more obvious.

    When you watch that gap, the power of the waves is mesmerising as you say, and I think you have depicted that power well.

  6. Thanks Ian…it was a fun day out eh! You should have stayed for the sauna afterwards…it was gold!

      I had a great time at the Dardanup Heritage Park instead. I need to go back and spend a full day there sometime as I had no idea there was so much there.

  7. Great shot mate. What really catches my eye is that blue water swirling around in front of the rock in the small channel.


  8. Indeed Jamie…I pinged off a few shots to make sure I got the right one. The image is a 14 shots stitch with various other shots blended in. I probably used about 17 shots al up to make this shot up!

  9. So not much effort put into this shot then? πŸ˜‰ lol.


  10. Not much at all mate! πŸ™‚ If you want the quality, you need to put in the time eh!

  11. So true mate. So true, and push boundaries.

    Grouse shot Mark, captured well. It really shows the winter side of Sugarloaf in all it’s glory.

  13. Thanks Mr. Rod of Tiderock! πŸ™‚

  14. Hey buddy, another winner from Sugarloaf. This portrays the power of waves well, something that is hard to capture. I also think this ‘natural’ look processing suits these images very well. Gold mate!

    Gotta get me a storm at Sugarloaf one day, calm water is fun for swimming but I want storms in my images while trying to keep the storms out of my head πŸ™‚

  15. 2 Gold’s from the Flembot in a row….now that has to be a record dude! Ta mate!

  16. Certainly making the most of it with this one Mark, fabulous mood in the water. This one may also look nice as B&W.
