The dramatic view from the Blowhole near Eaglehawk Neck, Tasmania. This is the view of Pirate’s Bay. The wonders of wide angle lenses and circular polarisers!

What you can’t tell from the photograph is how strong the wind was – I took this at F18, 1/15s on ISO100 – but I could barely keep the camera steady. I clamped myself to a safety railing, and took about a dozen exposures, hoping that one would be sharp. I also had to try and stop rain hitting the lens!
