The weather’s been fairly turbulent lately and you have to seize the moment when it comes to photography. After a long spell of wind and rain I was itching to fly my drone and get some more cool aerial shots, so when better conditions arrived, I headed out. I drove up to Gerringong and sent the drone up from Boat Harbour Reserve overlooking the town and the ocean. Got some great shots looking back on the beach and the town, including some cool 180ºs. I decided to take the long way home and, with the clouds looking awesome, flew again from the hill above Foxground.
Ourie Pool at the southern end of Werri Beach had a couple of customers when I arrived.

Looking south you can see boat harbour and, in the distance, Black Head at Gerroa.
Full 180º looking west over Gerringong, with Saddleback Mountain in the background.

180º looking south.
Light ray illuminates Foxground.
This was a 180º but I trimmed it because that road appeared on both sides of the image and looked a bit odd.
I liked this tree and the shadow it was casting.
Definitely my favourite shot of the day. Sunlight shining through the clouds of a storm brewing over the escarpment. The road on the right is old single-lane Princes Highway. On the left is the massive four lane upgrade that was opened a couple of years ago.
One of the local attractions – Grants Maze in the foreground.
