Swimming near Gardens

Posted on March 11th, 2018 in South Narrabeen, watershots.

Brilliant morning along the Collaroy-Narrabeen stretch. I wasn’t up for getting smashed in low tide shories, so I went for a swim with my camera instead. Water is beautiful too.

Gardens from the water, Sunday morning

Got wet too

Joined a reasonable size crew at Longy around midday for what turned out to be a fun, if lully, sesh. Mostly it was in the waist high range like this morning, but every now and then we’d get a more substantial set. I’d put that down to the 10 sec average period. Even the old guy got a few of the bigger ones. That wind was damn chilly though!

Shooting from the water in beach breaks is not always that productive. Although I had the Canon PowerShot D10 on board, I only got a couple vaguely worthwhile shots to mark the occasion. The D10 produces a clean image and is pretty straightforward to use. I’d like it to have a burst mode and a better zoom range would be good as well. I found shutter lag and shot to shot processing times made getting more than a couple shots in the few seconds a beachbreak wave lasts something of a challenge.

Went for a surf Friday mid-morning at the Path in Newport. Had the Panasonic Lumix DMC- FT1 water camera tucked in the wetty and grabbed a few shots…

If you want a high resolution image (they’re much bigger), then drop me a line via the RealSurf feedback form.

You can view each page of pics full size simply by clicking on any of the thumbnails.

IMPORTANT: Please give me the picture number of the one(s) you want in high res. You can find out the pic number by putting your cursor over the correct thumbnail picture(s). Also, since I have to find time in my day to search out and forward the correct pic or pics to you, I will be much more cheerful if you’ve also made a contribution to my new camera fund via the buy me a drink link (right)! :-) Make sure you mention if you’ve done so (makes me so much quicker!)

Wanted to test out the Panasonic FT-1 camera, so took it surfing late on a sunny Saturday morning with a little SE swell at Long Reef. We were catching waves from about the lagoon entrance south to the pole. Sets were into the chest high range and I got over a hundred pics.
