The images in this collection were taken in 2007, during a visit to New South Wales and Victoria in the middle of winter.
A surfer spills in the waves off Manly beach in Northern Sydney. With predictable swells and a picturesque background, these guys are out there every morning. I watched them over the course of several days and had a great time.
After a couple hours surfing, they towel off and hop onto the ferry to downtown where the offices are. Life does not get much better than that.
