Collaroy, Sydney – NB38
Collaroy Rock Pool is a really interesting pool located at Collaroy Beach in the Northern Beaches of Sydney. It’s about 50 metres in length and is great for photographers as it has some unique angles that make some great compositions for photographs.
On the morning I took this photo it was grey and overcast, I wasn’t feeling too inspired to shoot. I did see this composition but just wished for a nice sky. After the sun rose I was standing at one side of the pool talking to a few friends when the sky started to colour up from nowhere. I ran into position and started shooting. I remember standing there praying for a big wave to come so the water would rush over the pool and the stair handles straight towards me while there was colour in the sky. I really needed that to happen to make this image special.
It wasn’t happening and I was getting quite nervous. Just as I had lost hope this big wave came and washed the water over the pool straight towards me. I had just one moment to get this shot. I pressed my shutter release and hoped for the best. I looked at the image I had captured on the back of my camera and was so elated that I had captured the exact scene I had imagined in my mind.
