It was low tide but the ocean swell was huge.
I only just made it through the cave to get here.
With an incoming tide I soon realised I needed to take refuge on another rock stack, so l could safely take some images of this famous Point Nepean icon.
Every now and then a rogue set would come through and I was surrounded by water on my own little island.
But the thrill of the image seemed to numb my sense of fear.
As the ocean receded between these wave sets I safely made it back to the sandy beach.
On my return to the cave the pounding waves and rising tide had rendered this exit closed, so a scamper up the craggy cliffs and sand dunes to get back to London Bridge beach made for a challenging yet exhilarating experience.
I think the story behind the image and the people you meet along the way is what excites me the most about photography.
What are your thoughts on the things that motivate you to get out there and shoot?
