High surf advisory at Wai'anapanapa, famous for its black sand beach. The black sand comes from massive black lava flows in one or more eruptions of Haleakala.


Thanks, as always, for stopping by and for all of your kind comments -- I appreciate them all.

Last from Porthcawl for a while, this is a close-up of the previous Lighthouse Waves image.


Also, thanks for all of you that support me and gave me my best ever day on Flickr yesterday!


...this is a big wave out to you all my fine flickr friends to say thank you so much for your lovely encouragement on my venture into Lightroom yesterday with my shot. You were so so kind, helpful, supportive, sagacious with your comments - I so appreciate it. I started to respond to some of the comments on the shot and got overwhelmed as I wanted to say so much to each one of you (being Irish, we do not understand the ecconomic use of words ;))that I thought it best to dedicate this wave to you to express my gratitude for your 'wave' of support and kindness :) .

I usually post my wave photos in batches of three, so right on cue, here it is.


Oh, and by the way, this is not a black and white photo with selective colour, just a full colour image on a very grey day.

I'm reposting this photo so I can let you all know that the weather forecast, if correct, should lead to spectacular waves at Porthcawl tomorrow morning (Monday) and for once I'm going to be able to make it. Winds will be gusting up to 80mph and the almost 10 metre high tide is at 06:03 though dawn is at 07:47, so not perfect, but the chance of getting a sunrise through crashing waves should not be missed. There will be a lot of rain, but I am hopeful for the odd break in the cloud. As always, anybody who does go down there needs to make themselves aware of the dangers of coastal photography during storms, be careful out there!


This is a wave from a Porthcawl storm as it begins to fall back to the sea.

I have not taken many shots over the last few weeks and as Spring is casting her soft veil over Bondi I have been doing a spring clean of the 'archives' - so interesting for me to go back to my early photos from when I started late last year. I had no idea of when I got my first camera what I was going to take shots of , all I knew is that I wanted to start. I called myself Rosiebondi as it seemed simple when I signed up to flickr and I had no idea that I would fall head over heels in love in a whole new way with the area that I live in and the beaches and even more so the ocean which I have always loved being close to and being in.


This shot was taken on one of the first days that I brought my camera to the beach and took shot after shot and when I got home and uploaded the shots I suddenly really understood the photographic term 'capture' . When I look at this particular shot , there is a point right where the wave is curling that I get lost in and where time stands still and where, to me, the very soul of the ocean expresses itself. Since that day I have been captured by photography and specifically taking shots of the ocean, the light and the beach - I am a very willing and happy slave :).

To answer your question before you have asked it... No, I was not standing on a rock, I was standing right in the middle of the rushing wave :-D


I hope you enjoy it.

Description: This image was taken at Pandak Beach, during my short visit to Terengganu. The day started cloudy during the blue hour but the blazing hot sun started to shine it's ray past the thick clouds as the sun rises. Though I rarely managed to capture a good waves effect, this image somehow gives me a soothing feel despite it's strong wave.

A 20 foot storm wave threatens 50-foot-high Bird Island on the Marin headwinds. Watching this in 50 mile-per-hour gusts I imagined being in a small boat between wave and cliff at this moment. First in a series. The result, when when cliff met wave, was wild. Next tomorrow!

Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me. -Albert Schweitzer

Strong winds, and some below average weather swept up the waves on the sunny coast the last week, and as a result, some great surfing now, and also dramatic landscapes around he rocks :)


This one at high tide, near Kings Beach, Caloundra. Only 40 minutes I had to sit here till the right couple of waves repeated what I noticed that lured me to this frame to start with. I almost thought it was not going to happen again.

I spent the last few days down in Kalispell, Montana with my family and on one day we went to Glacier National Park to have a look around. Lake MacDonald was looking very nice that morning.. strong winds created these waves that made it seem more like an ocean coastline rather than a lakeshore! All the splashing also caused cool ice formations to build on the boulders near the water, which acted as great foregrounds.
