Kirstie Hales and I were filming down at Pennington Bay the day before yesterday (24-6-14). It was on the down side of some severe storms we had in South Australia on 24 & 25 jUNE 2014. The waves were 4-5m high and the wash was rolling up the beach some 50-80m from the waterline and breaking on the cliffs.
We went as low to the action as we dare whilst maintaining safety. We got our feet wet on a couple of occasions.
At one stage a huge breaker rolled in and the wash swirled right up around the base of the steps we were using as a platform, nearly drowning our cameras.
Keeping safe was a high priority as the undertow here at Pennington Bay is renowned for dragging the unwary out to sea!
All in all, we had a great time recording the images. We will be adding them to our galleries on www.beyondadelaide.com.au soon.
