Friendly Beaches Stormy Skies

Friendly Beaches, Stormy Skies – looking back at a trip to the Friendly Beaches from quite a few years ago. The weather was overcast, stormy and windy. Great for some afternoon seascapes 😉

Watching and waiting for the waves to crash. 1/3 second exposure.

Location shot of the "Friendlies"

This location is great for seascapes. Being on the east coast obviously sunrise is a good time, but on a dark and stormy day the rocky foreshore and the crasdhing waves are a great combination.

“Turbulence” – my favourite shot of the afternoon. Waves crash and recede over a shallow rock platform beneath the stormclouds.

Black and White suits these images nicely too 🙂

The Friendly Beaches is located to the north of Coles Bay and has its own campsites so is a great place to set up for a few days if you are exploring the east coast. It is only 20 mins down to Coles Bay so you aren’t too far away from the essentials.
