Dancing With Danger




Rock fishing is quite popular along much of Australia's coastline and I guess with pleasant weather and views like this I can understand why. It is also the most dangerous form of fishing. Can you spot the fishermen in the distance?




A primary safety rule is don't fish alone and I was pleased to see these guys enjoying each others company and also choosing a relatively safe location. The next three photos were taken over a couple of minutes.













A walk around the headland was a beautiful way to end to New Years Day, with Master J enjoying a sunset fly overhead, you can just see his r.c. plane in the top left corner above. I enjoy sorting through our holiday photos and look forward to visiting the seaside again, but you won't catch me rock fishing!

I agree, no rock fishing for me either! Lovely shots of your walk around the rocks-nothing better than a walk at the beach.

Angie said...

Lovely photographs! The fishing does look dangerous, though.

Rick said...

Gorgeous scenery, and yes, that does look like tempting fate with those waves crashing in.

I was curious though whether the fishermen threw the rocks back afterwards, as in 'catch and release'.

;-)

Have a great week !

tinajo said...

These pics are great, makes me wanna go fishing! :-)

Wow! Beautiful captures and I can see what you mean by danger in rock fishing.

geanina said...

beautiful dance:)....

Lui said...

How meditative to fish in that rocky place!

Isabelle said...

... danger is usually seen by one who is watching, not by one who is fishing or hiking or going down the snow covered slopes at high speed... :) have a good week!

lisa said...

The first photo is so lovely, capturing the peace and the reflections, then you can increasingly see what you are talking about when you say this is a dangerous sport. Hope the fish are very good. Lovely photos~

Impressive scenery and the light is beautiful. Great shots!

Giga said...

Mimo iż uwielbiam morze, nie chciałabym żeby mnie fala wciągnęła do wody.Już to przeżyłam :-(. Podziwiam więc rybaków, że się nie boją. Cudowne zdjęcia . Pozdrawiam.

Although I love the sea, I would not want to get me sucked into wody.Już wave is survived :-(. I admire the fishermen so that they are not afraid. Wonderful pictures. Yours.

Rosie said...

Wow, what a beautiful landscape! That does look dangerous!

Lovely shots - and you are right rock fishing does look dangerous.

Gillian Olson said...

Beautiful pictures; they clearly show how fast the waves can become dangerous. Great series.

Kristi {at} Live and Love...Out Loud said...

Stunning photos! They remind me of my father. He loves fishing along the shore. It's something we've done together since we were kids and though I no longer live in Hawaii, it's something I look forward to every year. Thanks for stirring up those sweet memories. :)

In case you haven't already heard, we announced our winter photography challenge today. I really enjoyed your work during the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge and would love for you to join us again! Stop by to learn more when you get a chance! Have a great day! :)

Sea fishing is a great sport but with al those waves is than amazing, Sunshine!

I would not adventure myself there, but when you love fishing it's another story..........now your photos are sublime.
Hope you are well, have a great day.

Life with Kaishon said...

What a beautiful place to go on a grand adventure to. WOW! : ) I love the images you were able to capture. The music playing here is so pretty. Soft and lovely!

Em S said...

Wow..that is rather stunning, but looks incredibly dangerous! I can see why they recommend going in groups!

Pat said...

Great shots! Such a beautiful rocky shoreline!

Andrea said...

These are beautiful shots, i also posted socks today. Your rocks seem to be big but with clean surfaces. Is it the rocks or the waves which make rock fishing dangerous?

Pam said...

Wonderful shots! I hope to visit Australia someday....if I can ever get past how long I'd have to be on a plane!

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Dangerous, indeed, but also quite beautiful! I hope they're ok! =)

Bautiful pics! I can see that this could be dangerous. But then, that's what some men like!

Powell River Books said...

I can see why it is dangerous. I would think those waves would wash them off the rocks. - Margy

Spare Parts and Pics said...

I really like the photos with the fishermen... excellent!

Tanya said...

oh wow, i was wondering what the danger was but now i can see! beautiful photos but i'll leave the rock fishing up to the professionals!

Such wonderful captures you've got, thanks for sharing these beauties!

Here's my first Saturday Sareenity entry, hope you can visit.

PS. I am now your blog's follower.

Rohit Sareen said...

no rock fishing where i live but we do have people take walks on such rocks and then get hurt or worse get swept away...so yes, this indeed is a very dangerous form of fishing.

i love the 3rd shot and of course the last serene shot :)

and thank you for dropping by and contributing to Saturday Sareenity.

Cheryl said...

That last shot is simply gorgeous.

Ross said...

What fantastic shots! My brother in-law just moved there for two years. My wife and I are hoping to get there sometime while he's there, that way I can get some great shots. Thanks for these!
