Photographer's Note

This is the view toward Victor Harbor and Boomer Beach from Port Elliot. Boomer by name, booming by nature, such is the way of the angry ocean surf off Encounter Bay. The sound of the waves crashing into shore is really loud which accounts for the name. 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. It is a shame that the sky was so cloudy when the photo was taken but we can't have everything.
