Cadillac Canyon

Cadilac Canyon_Silvia Tomarchio Photography_1

Cadillac Canyon, San Remo, a very sweet small stretch of beach, I actually thought it would be bigger, At the end of Potters Road, a short gravel road and about 140 steps or so i was told I didn’t count them myself, Some lovely rock formations, i was there at low tide and those waves sure did come in hard and fast. Spectacular, I had it all to myself, surprisedly the weather was mild for July, interesting cloud formations and only a tiny bit of rain as i was leaving. A very cool spot, i was meant to go back the next day for sunset but decided to visit Grantville and have a few ciders instead. You can purchase some of my images here. Thanks

Never gets old watching these beautiful seals, all part of the cruise around Phillip Island, they didn’t seemed phased by the high swells and crashing waves. Love the wildlife in Australia. You can purchase this image here.

Swell Time

Waves_Phillip Island_Swell_Sea_OceanOut on a whale watching cruise yesterday off Phillip Island, unfortunately we didn’t spot any, lots of playful dolphins and seals, There were lots of swells, rain and even hail stones at one point which made it all the more exciting. I love the way the waves dance and create quick moments of natures art. Victoria, Australia. You can purchase this image here.

Majestic Moments.


What is it about the ocean that makes me long for her?

While i love a crowed room full of real people, conversations that delight the heart, the connection of a portrait bringing out the essence of you, that moment that takes place, where you become shape and light and your inner glow seems to float meeting me in the middle, that moment I feel, instinct, click that shutter, the image created, when trust begins and our souls meet.Or photographing a wedding, invited from a distance, and watch the dance of love, their non verbal communication that speaks volumes that only they truly understand, two bodies one heart.

I also love being far and away, my perfect balance.

I crave her certainty knowing that each wave will come in and out in her own rhythm, the sounds, the build up as she swells up in the distance ready to make her spectacular appearance closer to where I stand, her wild and then gentle waves cascading on the solid rocks and platforms, that will not be moved. Her uncertainty, her surprises she brings, occasionally that splash, almost asking are you ready? ready or not, here I come. Her confidence in all her glory.

Sometimes I tell her my secrets, my hopes and dreams and in the process I let go and just be, not a care in the world, after all I do believe it all works out in the end as it should. She whispers, “go with the flow”. She knows, no questions asked.

Yesterday I just sang to her, fun pop songs that make me happy, loud enough for her to hear,  Occasionally a few surfers too. the sound of her waves backing up my vocals.

She gives permission to be  free and light, allows me to capture her, freeze her in time, slow her down and take with me moments of awe and peace as she carries on freely, her hypnotic ways….

“A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets. But now you all know there was a man named Jack Dawson, and that he saved me, in every way that a person can be saved. Titanic

No Jack required 😉

Sunrise at Apollo Bay

A very sweet serene sunrise this morning at Apollo Bay, I got a bit of a soaking which seems to have set the tone for the day. Thankfully it wasn’t cold. Dare I say it’s a new love place for me?!!!
I love the texture in the rocks, easy to get to and a lovely walk at low tide
