Tasman Textures

A wild sunrise on the Tasman Peninsula. Two days before I arrived at this beautiful place, wind speeds had reached hurricane force (Beaufort 12 or 118 kph) at Tasman Island. Standing here in a "mere" gale (Beaufort 8 / 70 kph), I was still struggling to keep not only the tripod, but myself steady. The turbulence of the ocean on the weather side of the cape is obvious at left, contrasting the relative tranquillity of the lee side at right.
