And now for something a bit different!

When the wind really howls, this particular spot tends to get some pretty crazy wave action. The shoreline seems to funnel waves into each other so they crash, making these incredible exploding waves. While the water looks rough, out of nowhere you’ll see an explosion of water and sand headed straight up, only to be caught by the wind, and blown away like it was never there. It’s really shocking to see up close, and it was real, real windy when I was there a few months back. Gusts over 100kmph!

But what makes it extra interesting to me, is that sometimes the waves and wind almost seem to form faces, or animals, or creatures of some sort. Going through the series of images after shooting is very much like looking at ink blots - maybe what I see in the wave says something about what’s going on in my head!

Here's one of the waves that really caught my attention

Taken from the beach on Berneray at Rushgarry whilst I was waiting for the Leverburgh ferry to arrive. Eriskay and Harris can be seen in the distance.

Don't Dream Its Over
Crowded House

There is freedom within
There is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

There's a battle ahead
Many battles are lost
But you'll never see the end of the road
While you're travelling with me

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win


Headed down this morning to Mrs Macquaries Chair to shoot this scene.

This tree is right on the foreshore, and people walk and jog under it daily whilst out exercising. Quite a few passed me this morning as I was taking this shot, nearly everyone saying hello which was nice.

The reason I titled this image with a Crowded House song, is simply because I was at the "Farewell To The World” gig, way back in 1996, on the forecourt steps. I was very close to the front of the stage, and I'll never forget it.

Hope you like "Dont Dream Its Over"
Cheers, Mike
