Rough swell.....!

We're back to a touch of wintery weather, not too much and we really need the rain... This fisherman is standing next to a 'no swimming' sign, methinks in this weather it should be 'no fishing' as well, those rocks can get slippy... one big wave and he's out of there...or maybe that's just me being a bit of a  'wuss' (roughly translated 'scaredy cat' in Aussie slang).....!!

  3. We've lost a couple more rock fishermen in the last few weeks. They don't realise just how dangerous it is. Summer over here at the moment, 24 today, 26 over the weekend, getting up to 30 in the western suburbs. Won't last, its far too early.

  8. Um, so he's tough. One strong watery push and he's a wet wuss. Too much bravado.

  10. Great capture. Hawaiians say: "Never turn your back on the sea."

  13. Je ne pense pas que tu sois mauviette, Gracie. Quand la mer est déchaînée, il faut rester prudent. Bravo pour cette belle photo!

  16. Lovely sea pic! In answer to your question, yes, the ocean gets pretty angry every September as the equinox gets near.

  18. I agree, he should be a bit more careful. I hope he caught something for his troubles.

  21. Great photograph of a compelling & precarious situation! I guess he either thinks it's worth the risk or doesn't think about the risk that much...
