It was just marginally dryer in the water than it was on land . Yes folks it was bucketing down raining all day in the bay. Now if you saw a real tall dude, with a big bright yellow head and a very long straight nose, kinda like a long tall funky coloured elephant man. You were not hallucinating. It was just me strolling around with a bright yellow sailing jacket draped over my melon. With a big lens jammed up the sleeve and poking out the wrist end to keep the equipment dry while pulling a few shots. Today it didn’t stop raining and it never got lighter than twilight. It’s been the most difficult shoot we’ve done thus far. But shoot we did, and photos we do have, even if they are grainy from shooting through a curtain of water. The swell was big, really big. It’s hard to get a perspective on the larger waves as nobody was willing to take off on them. Or perhaps they couldn’t, as there was a howling offshore wind charging up the face. Frankly I’m surprised there were many folks in the water at all. As it really didn’t look that good, the swell is really lumpy; the rain was heavy and the wind very strong. We did however notice that nearly all cafes and restaurants were working at full capacity today. Clearly sipping a coffee and just watching it all wash by, was the activity of choice for most folks . To all those to all those stoic folks who braved the weather today, we’d just like to say. Thank you, for being .
