HEADING OUT

20140817-IMG_4234

 

I haven’t gotten out in my boat in over 9 days! The reason for that is my engine!

My main engine called it quits & my back up has now started to act up as well! I’ve ordered a new engine (4 grand),but it won’t be here for 3 weeks! 

I put two new spark plugs in my back up engine & stayed around the harbour area in case I had trouble again? If I go into the shallows & kick the engine up,It fluids the carb & doesn’t want to start again! I learned that the hard way tonight!

I couldn’t get it started again & had to row back! I was rowing with the tide ( like I’d be dumb enough to try to row against it!) so it wasn’t that bad,but I did miss out on the sunset!

I can’t wait for my new engine to arrive!!

COX BAY VISTA

20140811-Untitled_Panorama1I didn’t get out in my boat tonight. Instead I decided to head out to Cox bay for the sunset.

The cloud structure looked interesting! I walked the beach looking for photo opportunities,but found few. As the clouds started to turn reddish I looked around frantically for any surfers & than found two walking towards me! I rushed up to them & asked if I could take shots of them as they walked?

They agreed thankfully! The cloud colour & structure was fantastic! The beach had a layer of water on it that acted like a mirror! When the tide is high,the water permeates down into the sand.The entire beach fills up like a huge bowl.So when the tide goes out,all of that water begins to drain back down the beach. This water layer really adds drama to a beach scene! So it’s better to shoot the sunset when it’s low tide rather than high!

Had a great sunset beach shoot tonight! I never know when the sunset is going to “GO”,but if your not around & prepared,your not going to be able to take advantage of it!

INVASION!

20140810-IMG_379920140810-IMG_3796There are thousands of these little guys all over the west coast beaches at the moment!
They are called “By The Wind Sailor’s”. They have there own built in sail that catches the wind!
If you want to read up more on them,you can check them out here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velella

I went out to Cox bay tonight for the sunset. I knew these little guys would be scattered around & was curious how they would look at sunset?
I thought their sail might look cool near sunset!

SURFS UP!
