Photographer's Note

Boomer by name, booming by nature, such is the way of the angry ocean surf off Encounter Bay. Rarely a pussycat, this unadulterated ocean swell comes barrelling in from Antarctica and lashes Port Elliot's renowned surf beach.

Most visitors to Boomer Beach and the surrounding coast take to the binoculars rather than the surfboard (I have been known to do this in the past). For the ocean is southern right whale territory and come winter, these magnificent beasts are often seen cruising effortlessly offshore, heading towards their northern breeding grounds.


It was very cold and windy the day my friends and I were there. I am surprised that I could stay upright to take the photo.

I cropped the photo a little because I had to straighten the horizon, adjusted the contrast and brightness a little, resized, sharpened and then added the frame.

Hope you like it,
