South Coast Outtakes...

Words here

Hard disks getting full....
Too many unused clips - "outtakes"

Perused these ephemerals.... 
and cobbled together a vid,
(.....before the big delete)

Sorta like the vid flow with the music

Reflections on lake retrospective

Too many words here...

I did look at this vid today and thought it worthwhile to stick up ....
music is fantastic and there is a nice moment in the vid, at the very end...

Ah..... the excitement of my first footage with my new go pro 2,
(How did I know they were going to soon bring out out a Hero 3? .....sob)

This includes my very first footage and my very first (now broken) wooden greenland paddle
(eventually went to a one piece carbon GLP which is still (touch wood) unbroken)

I was hoping originally to use this vid.......
to highlight the oxymoronic nature of development in wilderness areas
(if you find a place.... which has no sign of humanity......breathe deeply..... and savour it)

Some pics here 

(from the same location but not from the vid....)

east coast low by morning and evening

Words here

An east coast low pressure system
pushing up swell 2-3 metres for the last week.
Too much moving water for sea kayaking for me.
Sorta nice to hang behind rock pools,
and feel the power vibrating through the rock platforms.
Didn't get washed in..... but managed wet shoes, thrice.

Videoed both ends of the day at two nearby beaches.

(sometimes it's smarter to hide (sans kayak) behind rock pools)

sea kayak trip on a fat high

words here

meandering through coastal wilderness
in calm waters, sunny skies and little, if any, wind
during a fat, slow moving, high pressure system
close to the winter solstice
.....heaven on a (greenland) stick
actually 'twas fun, with any type of paddle!
thanks Rae, Neil and Mike

Rock Pools

sans kayak

vid embedded here

no swell,
soft grey light,
left the kayak onshore,
wandered around the rock pools,
and managed another 'fix' of salt water.

in the vid,
watch the lone tree on the skyline in the top left of the frame,
as i step away, soggily slowly south, exploring other beautiful rock pools.
