Poaching a view!



In an attempt to blow away any lingering vestiges of a 'mm' (mega migraine) yesterday, I zipped down to check out the coast on the first really wintery winters day this winter :) with temps 17 - 19C brrrr!  Spotting long lens guy and friend huddled in the shelter of a Trigg Beach rocky outcrop I stopped to 'poach' his view from the road! Wonder if he snapped me while I wasn't looking :) The waves looking back up to Hillarys Boat Harbour were crazy wild.. the Cormorants clinging to the rock below, perhaps thinking it was time to migrate to warmer climes.. not sure if they actually do that! Hope your week started better than mine, happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

  6. I always forget that you're the opposite of us. It's hard for me to remember cooler times right now. But love the view on the water.

  12. Really wild images Grace! You get some big seas over there! I watched my Mum suffer from really really awful MMs whilst growing up and they are just horrid things. Thankfully she did not pass them on to me. I hope the ocean blew any remnants away dear Grace.

  16. Urgh, poor you, I used to get mm's. I take some preventative pills now that seem to work. 17-19C is what the temp is here - and this is summer! But we don't have those huge waves, ha. It's always fun to see what other people are taking pics of, I find. Sometimes it inspires me, sometimes not!

  18. Oh, Grace, so dang sorry to hear you had to go through migraine again. I´m so so very relieved I´m over it since... 15 years now? I know it´s a horrible pain :-(
    Great shots, but mind you... "17 - 19C brrrr!" ;-) - it made made me giggle. Add a minus and I´m with you!
    Did you hear btw that in Paris a bridge-wall broke down due to too many love locks? C' est la vie, huh? Physics!

    Yet more Aussies came into the museum today to taunt us, but today the sun shone 23%! Ha!

    Wonderful shots of the sea. Brilliant stuff!

  21. It looks very wild. I have often wondered what someone was photographing and turned to look at the subject to see if it is something that interests me.

  22. Sorry to hear about the migraine. Glad it is in the past. Grace, you never fail with your photographs. The second one is just stunning with the waves, rocks, and blowing mist. The others are fine also, but that second one has me.

  23. Smashing pictures, love the second one, so full of atmosphere.

  31. Very cool seascape photography Grace. The sea is wonderful for blowing away vestiges of every kind.

  32. Funny to read your about your "winter times". When we have 20 C here, we all go out to enjoy the nice weather. Actually it is now 22.5 C and I have the garden door open while typing :).
