South Australia was been battered by a violent storm from the south west during the last three days– from Thursday to Saturday. We experienced gale force winds, solid rain, high tides and surging seas along the coast of the southern Fleurieu Peninsula.
Our usual morning and evening poodlewalks were curtailed due to the water cutting off access to parts of the littoral zone. So I could not photograph the water flows. It was also too dangerous to venture around the rocks to Petrel Cove to do some macro due to the huge waves. Though the foam was everywhere along the coast it was difficult to access among the granite rocks in the early morning light, as the water from the surging waves along the beach prevented access.
I could barely stand up with the force of the wind when I was climbing up the cliffs from the shore to the path that runs along the top of the cliffs. By Saturday afternoon the storm had passed and the evening poodlewalk amongst the coastal rocks was back to normal. The foam had gone.
Photography cannot represent the experience of the wildness of walking in this kind of storm.
