Happy New Year everyone!
Last Thursday 12 January 2012 I enjoyed a super morning photographing surfing at Duranbah beach (which is at Tweed Heads, in northern New South Wales (NSW), adjacent to the Queensland / NSW border; at the southern end of The Gold Coast; Australia). Here are some pics from a beautiful morning with a strong south-easterly breeze blowing in:
I had a bit of luck later in the shoot, too. I was finishing up and had just left the beach when, who did I see? None other than Dual World Surfing Champion Mick Fanning, just arriving! A short time later I was back into the swing of things, albeit from a bit further away. Here’s a ‘pic of Mick’! (Some tight cropping to remove other surfers):
Nice action preceeding a wipeout / stack / fall / off / trip 🙂 (four-pic sequence is in the gallery)
Here’s my Smugmug photo gallery on Summer surfing at Duranbah (just south of the Snapper Rocks Superbank), Gold Coast. Here’s an ‘Extras’ gallery of unedited additional photos (including quite a few more of Mick Fanning).
Thanks so much for looking, and wishing everyone a great 2012!
