“It Was a Morning That Made Us Smile”
I remember this moment well; it was a morning that made us smile. The very type of morning we would use to explain the joys of camping to non-campers. Perched on top of the Baxter Cliffs part way along the Great Australian Bight, we looked out as we sipped on our morning coffee.
The Southern Ocean was calm, it seemed almost as though we could gaze across to the Antarctic. Bacon and eggs under the soft morning light followed the coffee, it seemed like life couldn’t get much sweeter. Then it did. A pod of southern right whales appeared. The mothers were teaching their calves the skills required for the long trip home. We were watching mesmerised, like flies on the wall perched 60 metres above. This shot captures a memory I will never forget.
