This impressive shot was taken from high above Sydney’s photogenic Northern Beaches. #MonaVale is a local favourite boasting two fabulous beaches separated only by sand and a raised rock platform. Prefer water without waves? No problem! There's not one but two ocean-fed pools built into the magnificent coastal outcrop. ☀️ #ilovesydney ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I've known about the coming full moon for weeks. I've track it's timings, where it'll rise and in what direction. I've watched and waited and planned. I even rented a super-long lens and planned to shoot exclusively from the beach, my goal, to capturing the gigantic moon as it emerged from the ocean.
The day came and I packed by car then headed to the beach an hour early, founding a comfortable spot to hunkered down and wait for the show. As I experimented with the new lens, photographing the longboarders gracefully glide through the evening light, my anxiety began to grow. The moon was 10 minutes from rising and I was starting to second guess my decision. Would the photos be any good? Is this the right spot? Are the clouds too thick? Then the real question came to mind. Should I be in the water?
That question had been growing in my mind for 3 days but I'd repeatedly dismissed it. I told myself that I must stick with my plan of shooting from the beach, but when I packed the car earlier that day I'd packed my water housing and wetsuit too, just in case.
I continued to shoot from the land, my anxiety growing, questioning if I'd made the right decision. I glanced at my phone, 8 minutes until moonrise. Looking through the viewfinder one more time I told myself "These photos are terrible". With only 7 minutes to go I jumped up and started sprinting to my car. I'd parked way too far away to be changing my mind at this late stage but as I sprinted I knew this was the right decision (maybe). I quickly changed, darted back down to the ocean and gleefully threw myself into the waves, ready to capture the dance of the surfers and the moon.
As always, thank you and I hope you like tonights image.
A new perspective 🌊
About this shot, I used my Mavic 2 Pro with my @polarpro ND filter and captured some of the amazing waves this planet has to offer. Filming in the middle of the afternoon is often tough because the sun is at its brightest. Using these amazing @polarpro filters helps reduce glare when flying over water while also enhancing color saturation making it easier for me to film and capture amazing content while also allowing me to have more control of color when editing. Watching waves crash from above is always breathtaking to watch and these gnarly waves did not disappoint 🤙
