After the stroke

I really feared losing seascape photography from my life after the stroke. I saw my life priorities more clearly and photograph was highest on the list.

I was in hospital for 19 days, and couldn’t drive for six weeks. It was a dry winter so I wasn’t missing any stunning sunrises and sunsets. |Not being able to drive a car was very limiting. The first likely looking light was in early August, and I walked down to the marina with my gear. It was worth the walk.




Next I made it to Gallows for some understated sunset light. I drove down. Good light was rare during the usual peak sunrise season. I patiently looked out my window before dawn but was more often than not disappointed.

Finally some good light looking west over Coffs Creek.




  1. Yay! Really pleased you still have your seascape photography, Paul

  2. Glad you are able to continue your art. My illness forces me to do less and work locally. Things change, but we can find new ways to continue to create.
