The recent king-tides along the coast of the southern Fleurieu Peninsula made it difficult for us to walk amongst the coastal rocks both in the early morning and the late afternoon on many occasions. We stayed on the clifftop heritage trail and looked down on the wild seas crashing over the rocks we would usually walk amongst.
Kayla and I were able to venture to walk along the littoral zone one morning between my return from photographing in Melbourne for the SALA exhibition and before I left to go on the photocamp at Balranald for the Mallee Routes project.
It was one of those infrequent lovely winter mornings— cloud, sunshine and very little wind–that allowed time for wander around, look at how things had changed due to the king tides and to do some photography.
Even then, the tide were still very high, and we had to be quite careful not to be caught by the rogue waves as we scampered amongst the rocks.
