Some days are diamonds and other days you just get lucky. Well yesterday was both. Its been five weeks since I’ve ventured out to take a serious photo, not sure why probably a little battle fatigued from a pretty tough year. I just had to get out last night and ‘recharge’ my batteries, I hopped in the car and with no particular destination in mind just started to drive. Those who know me well enough would know that I instinctly drove to the coast for my recharge. I hit the coast at Port Beach near Fremantle, and headed past Cottesloe Beach, Scarborough and then past Trigg Beach. Finally I decided to hop out of the car and below me I saw a really small group of rocks that were just begging to have their photo taken. Being the ever obliging seascape photographer that I am, I grabbed my camera gear and walked down to the beach and setup my gear.
After being there for an hour and working out my shots the sun finally set and I got to work. The joys of taking seascape photographs came flooding back into my veins, I felt alive again and I think the joy of coming alive again were reflected in my photos. I’m really happy with this one. Where do you guys go for your recharge? Is it just taking photos itself that recharges you, or do you have a certain location that you gravitate to?

I hope you guys enjoy looking at it as much as I did taking it. All comments are greatly appreciated.
