I'm not good in the cold. Come summer, I'll tell you I'm not good in the heat either. Lately the weather has been less enjoyable than one would hope; but in an attempt to make the most of it, I've been embracing the art of day tripping.
I love the peninsula, I find it funny that some of the most remarkable locations I've been too are only a short drive from home. Stuck right between Flinders and Cape Schanck is this gem. Just a short walk from the main road is kilometres of publicly accessible cliffs dotted with bays and beaches. I've come to love the coast. I'm not much of a beach person but the idea of spending hours wandering and exploring has grown on me.
As much as I love cliffs, I despise heights. I wouldn't say it's a phobia; but give me a choice between standing on the edge of a cliff and safely standing back with no chance of accidentally falling onto a rocky outcrop? I'll be fine back here. That said, I felt compelled to fuel my inner adrenaline junkie and get a shot of the drop. Arm outstretched, I pulled a few shots off in hope that I was able to fend of the shakes long enough to get a decent shot.
If any excuse, heading out for the day gives me a chance to spend some quality time with some friends and get inspired to shoot something new. It's refreshing to be able to just have a day off, step away from emails and editing and explore. Call me an advocate for adventure. One of the best parts about it is that it's just another location to add to the shoot book. It's nice having such a unique spot readily available if by chance it's needed.
