    Another massive winter swell hit Sydney's coast over the last week generating monster sized waves putting on an impressive display of power and beauty along the coastline. People spend hours and hours perched atop the cliffs at Bronte (pronounced Bron-tee) marvelling at the sheer power of waves crashing ashore observing surfers taking on the huge swells. What do people think about as they look out onto the huge swells rolling in and crashing up against the shore? Always wondered.... it appears to be quite therapeutic for so many people. As it was a southerly swell generated by a huge low pressure system off Australia's southern most point in Tasmania only a couple of Sydney's city beaches are rideable in these conditions. Bronte, my favourite beach and local, being one of them. This is PURE BRONTE..... indigozoom.com marcus@indigozoom.com Follow: twitter.com/indigozoom Track: Nothing Brings Me Down Artist: Emiliana Torrini http://www.emilianatorrini.com/

          • BEAUTIFUL EYRE


            from Marcus O'Brien Added 15.4K 341 54

            In the northern area of South Australia you'll find Lake Eyre (pronounced "air"), the lowest point of Australia at approximately 15.2 meters below sea level. As Australia's largest Lake covering 1,349,251ha it attracts the lowest annual rainfall of the country with annual mean precipitation of about 100mm. Named after Edward John Eyre who first sighted it in 1840 it consists of two sections: Lake Eyre North and Lake Eyre South, joined by the narrow Goyder Channel and was a permanent saline lake from 5000 to 10,000 years ago. In the last 200 years there have been only three major floodings (when both Lakes become one) the last occurring in 1974. Current surface water level is approximately 80% due to recent rains (the best in a decade) and water is expected to stay in Lake Eyre North till at least late 2011. Shot from an remote location 200 kms from the nearest homestead, these pictures illustrate the cyclical nature of the Lakes weather patterns now that water has returned to this unique area of Australia surrounded by desert. And yes, the thumbnail image has a horizon in it - that thin black line. The rest is water and sky!

                A BIG winter swell hit the Australian east coast recently, conditions were very special due to the tide, offshore westerly winds, sand banks and size of the swell all combining perfectly. Tama doesn't break like this very often. Tourists and Sydney-siders perched along coastal vantage points whilst experienced surfers took on the massive pacific swells. Here's a visual story illustrating the beautiful part of Australia we call Sydney's eastern beaches.

                      (Give the player window a little time to load before pressing play to ensure smooth playback & click the four arrows icon in the bottom right hand corner to make full screen) No other festival in the Southern Hemisphere illuminates a city quite like Vivid Sydney. As the festival of light, music and ideas, Vivid Sydney flicks on the ultimate light switch and ignites the city with spectacular colours. It features the lighting of the Sydney Opera House, which sees Utzon’s iconic sails transformed into a spectacular living canvas with Vivid LIVE co-curator Laurie Anderson putting her own mark on Sydney's most recognised landmark. Now in its second year, it’s a harbourside artwork that’s grabbed the world’s attention! From the 27th May through till 21st June the people of Sydney were treated to a wonderful journey of projection and imagination with incredible lighting patterns beamed onto iconic buildings around the CBD that when sped up, into a timelapse sequence, gives the festival an entire new dimension. This visual story was shot over the entire festival period using the latest camera technology from Canon - the 1D Mark IV DSLR and a variety of Canon L-series lenses. The projections were expertly done by well known Sydney based projection company The Electric Canvas. There was no shortage of Sydney locals and tourists alike actively capturing the festival from every possible angle in a variety of different ways - still photography & video being the most popular. No one I could see was shooting time lapse sequences which, combined with the magic imagery being projected onto various buildings and structures around town including the world famous Sydney Opera House, I believed would generate some very interesting imagery. Vivid Sydney 2010 is a visual story brought to you by local cinematographer Marcus O'Brien from Indigo Zoom Productions. Hope you enjoy it!
