5 moments from the first day of coast to core
finding the right angle in manly for sunrise was challenging but i interviewed a born and bred manly lifeguard at dawn, long lived fellow who had seen a lot of changes.
the start of a journey is always slow to get going but to be honest, i would have appreciated slow than going from sunrise straight into the sydney cbd and freeway network.
but the reward of coming through the royal national park straight onto otford lookout was breath taking. After interviewing members of an mx5 club i sat back and drank in the massive vista.
from there i skipped down through beach after beach interviewing a life long surfer and vagabond on the way through to wollongong for a beautiful juxtapose between sweeping beach, industrial output and the southern arm of a huge cyclone turned rain depression which played tag all the way to south australia.
hill 60 in port kembla is the place to go for airborne humans. the guy in the shot was either very skilled, too keen and probably both but he went up in a wild bit of wind to enhance the scene. i also interviewed two glide pilots, one an inspirational german woman who after becoming paralysed during a hang-glider accident designed her own wheel chair and mount for a wing, she travels across europe gliding and then hitching to the next high point.
