This is the ocean rock pool at Coogee Beach. I've posted a few photos of this place before. The photo was taken at about 8pm on 1 January 2013, just after my first swim of the year.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!

Oh i'm going to make a prediction that this photo of yours will be a winner, very popular, or as you say a 'cracker'! ?
its funny to hear about going for an outdoor swim, but its because its our Winter
anyways, a very soothing, smooth shot with wicked atmosphere.

Nice way to ring in the new year, Lisa! The differnt water textures in and out of the pool are really cool here - nice and placid in FG, blurred and misted from motion and the long exposure in the ocean itself. Beautiful lighting as well. Hope you had a splendid new year's day, and that the swim was a good way to top it off!

un inizio d'anno sfolforante, la foto è magnifica, ineccepibile nella costruzione e nella ripresa.
Beata te che hai fatto il primo bagno dell'anno, a me è toccata la doccia....

Ciao cara Lisa,
la geometria esaltata dalla tua composizione evoca eleganza, equilibrio ed armonia. Mi paciono tantissimo le tonalita' calde e fredde e la loro gradazione, come si spengono le une dentro le altre. La gestione della luce mattinale e' magnifica. Un modo stupendo di prepararsi per l' avventura del nuovo anno. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buon anno!

interesting place you chose for first frame in 2013.
happy new year

A swim on New Year's Day; but I bet you were a damn sight warmer than those people who take an annual dip in the Serpentine in London's Regent Park on the first day of the year! As for the composition, that is quite marvellous, making excellent use of the graphical lines offered by the groynes, that sit so beautifully against that beautiful blue background. A very Happy New year to you and yours!

Jolie pause longue !
Les couleurs sont sympas et la mer a un aspect très doux
Le ciel est peut etre un peu vide ?

super shot and a place you have shown us a few times. Although I live 1000m from the sea, there is a cat in hells chance of me diving into the Channel even on the 1st July which would be the equivalent timing here in the northern hemisphere. Nevertheless I love the idea of paddling into the waters here. This is a beautifully executed and presented shot of this idyllic rock pool.
All the very best for 2013 - Brian.

Gat capture from the sea side. As I understand, now you're enjoying the summer time for which I envy you a lot. Have a gat time and a perfect year!
Sergiom (76381) 2013-01-02 5:56
After uou said that you took your first swim of the year I said to myself that you drank to much for the new year and then I remembered that it is summer down under.
This is a very nice pool to swim in and a perfet subject for you camera. Very well done.
Have a nice day

a light and exceptional color rendering, as you know offer us.A beautiful first composition for the new year.
Happy New Year to you and your family !
Best regards of France

Hello dear Lisa,
Happy New Year! Such beautiful blues in this shot- stunning. I love your play of angles and the different reflectivity of the various water surfaces- well seen and captured. Stunning, may many equally splendid pics be ahead of you in 2013
Any visits to this side of the world on the calendar?
SteveH (6269) 2013-01-02 18:39
Hi Lisa, great use of the walls, providing a path for the viewer out to the horizon. Colours are great - does this mean that you've sorted your colour issue?
speedymanu (3587) 2013-01-03 0:45
tha's definitely a place where I'd like to swim to cure all the excesses of the holiday celebrations. I like the way the artificial and natural lighting blend together. Along with the slow shutter time, it gives your shot a soothing effect, well suited to peacefully start 2013.
Wishing you a great 2013,
rbassin (22527) 2013-01-03 1:37
une vue impressionante, le bleu avec des dégradés magnifiques.
L'effet obtenu est magique.
Bonne année 2013

I like the composition and the colors,and also the silky texture on water surface where created the 30 sec. exposure.
I wish you a Happy and creative 2013 with many beautiful photos!
SnapRJW (31629) 2013-01-03 3:15
Hi Lisa - So simple but so sublime. You really get these shots off seamlessly. Love the angles, textures, and colour-blocking. Warmest regards Rosemary
Noel_Byrne (30143) 2013-01-03 8:27
This is a real beauty, the colours and composition, and the wonderful smooth effect on the water are all totally cool. Such a simple subject, but such a rich result. And you were swimming at 8pm on a January night? Oh, to be able to do that in Ireland. Well, in fairness some people do, but I dont think the blue tint your skin has when getting out of the Irish sea is my colour. At least, thats my excuse as I head for the pub instead :)
Fantastic capture, thanks for sharing.
adores (44881) 2013-01-05 13:55
I see you have started the new year with one of your favourite places:)!
A really good long exposure here! I like the result! the colours are very good and the composition also! Good work!
Have a great New Year!
flatwin (2181) 2013-01-08 1:15
belle composition que cette prisé de vue.
La gestion du temps de pose est parfaite pour nous donner ce cliché avec de belles couleurs
yquem46 (38750) 2013-01-08 3:02
One of your favorite places !
i like the delicate pastel colors, the mild light, the long exposure and the graphical minimalist compo
Bravo. My best wishes for 2013
mirosu (16039) 2013-01-08 23:59
Hi Lisa, With simple set-up you have created striking and intriguing image, proving that you that you don’t need much for great photographs.
The lighting, exposure and focusing is exactly as it should be, creating a tack sharp image.
brianmcc (6219) 2013-01-11 13:06
the colour tones in this scene are wonderful, very appealing and full of atmosphere. i love the line of concrete criss-crossing the frame and leading us towards the open water. i guess a swim on jan 1st in oz is a different ball game to a swim on jan 1st in irelend.
have a lovely weekend,
gus72 (3719) 2013-01-12 18:30
Ciao Bambina !!
whenever there is water..... your photos go up to another dimension.
You have an affinity with water and make it look spectacular.
Also..... you know the right time of the day when to go looking for the special shot.
Congratulations ...... once again.
un abrazo muy calido ...... and please...... bring back winter.
