Reddell Beach was on my list, although i was quickly told i needed a 4 wheel drive to get there, another sigh…Chatting to a local in the morning still desperately trying to find a battery charger, another offer to borrow a camera, so I decided to invite her along for a drive, I told her I really wanted to go there, she’s like it’s fine, we’ll go, nervous as anything and after much debate I thought yeah lets to it, thankfully it was only 3 to 400 hundred metres of unsealed road, phone footage is hilarious, just go around the water, up the side! wtf! well to my delight we were there in no time, finally clouds, a slither of battery left, no live view for Big Nik, off i went, completely lost in the ocean, I heard her say, time for food, you see why I like to go alone right? I went down the next day missing the turn but was on the other side of the rocks i was yet to explore, the beach to myself only a few people, a little wave at each other and back to our own thoughts, I was thanking God that my battery was still going, and then the last shot came and went and the battery flashed, i was so grateful to get anything at all, images are photographed with My Nikon and a borrowed Olympus, actually nice working with two cameras, one for long exposure and one for happy snaps. I packed up my gear and found a rock pool and just sat in there for ages, closed my eyes and felt the warm waves rush over my body, just heaven….One of the things I loved about Broome is it only 10 to 15 minutes to any of the beaches/town from Cable Beach.
I love getting out amongst the rocks, a feeling of peace and joy although i have to say nothing brings me more to life than random people willing to participate while enjoying their day…
After all the world becomes even more beautiful with people in it!
I handed my card to one of these young girls, as always if they contact me, i am always happy to email a copy.
A little while earlier while out right on the edge of the rocks i noticed a bloke taking pics of me with his phone, as i walked back to the shore i stopped and had a chat, “I was waiting for you to get hit by a freak wave” mmm charming I thought 😉 and laughed it off.
