Swirling by andyjimmy Swirling by andyjimmy
Just prior to this shot there was a rather large freak wave that crashed onto the rock platform and sent a wall of water up and onto the rocks on the right which cascaded down into this small pond. I missed getting a shot of cascading water, but rather haphazardly put my camera down pointing this little pond and pressed the button hoping for something. To the naked eye this water wasn't doing anything cool, but with the slower shutter... some very nice swirling patterns :)

Taken about 20mins before sunrise at the Ivo Rowe Pool at Coogee

Also taken the same morning

Lovely shot! I like how it is different than the other water shots that I have seen in a while. The swirling is unique rather than just the normal straight lines of the water. Thank you for capturing something that actually made me stop and take a look!

Lovely tones and movement. It may just be the wave but I can't help feeling the horizon needs levelled. Love it though.

Thanks and I know what you mean by the horizon, I think its the slope of the rocks that throws its off. There is a small gap between that slopey rock on the right and the boulders on the left that reveals the horizon and its indeed straight. Thanks for being thoughtful with your comment :D
