Spiritual Solace

countrysolace

Now days I believe that we all have a spiritual ‘Anchor’ on this earth.   Flemming’s is Hawke Dreaming, Neal loves the High Sierra and Lake Tahoe.   Well mine is Injidup Pt / Wyadup Rock.  I have always been fascinated with it and always felt extremely cleansed when I go there.   I have seen whales and their calves there and schools of dolphins swimming through there, not to mention its a great surf spot.    My favourite photos of Christian’s are nearly always of Wyadup Pt because I feel such a strong connection to that place.

Well now I have a second place one, that isn’t as far.   Its just magic, for the past two weekends I have just sat up on this hill taken a few photos and then just put the camera away and allowed myself to be aborbed in the moment.   I’ve felt the last rays of the sun fall on my face, the wind gentley blowing through my hair and the night slowly embracing and soothing me.   Okay, okay I know that sounds very hippyish (nothing wrong with hippies) but I’ve really felt clean and soothed when coming away from this place and that is a great feeling.

Does anyone else have a place like this that they like to head out to and just get ‘lost in the moment’?

Anyhow I’m off to Wave Rock tomorrow afternoon for an evening shoot, a star trail shoot and then a morning shoot and then I’m returning on Saturday morning.   Wish me luck, apparently its a difficult spot to shoot.

Thank you for reading my blog
