Black Head is a rocky promontory that juts out into the Pacific Ocean from the eastern edge of the coastal village of Gerroa. It’s a popular location with fishermen thanks to the adjoining reefs and the relatively quick drop-off in depth. The headland’s position is such that it collects more than its fair share of big waves and when there’s a large swell here the waves explode on the rocks.
This photograph was taken on the inner southern side of Black Head, looking across the Shoalhaven Bight towards Shoalhaven Heads and Mount Coolangatta. There was a good swell running on this day in April 2014 and I used a relatively long exposure to capture the wave movement.
