Sunday in My City: There is a storm brewing.

Sydney is bracing for a big storm which is expected to arrive tonight. We'll miss the worst of it but there will be some impressive sea swell.  Bare Island is one of my favorite spots in Sydney. It's locating inside Botany Bay and is normally protected from the open ocean.  Today the eastern side of the island was taking a battering.

Waves breaking onto the rocks.
Whale Watching
I suspect the guy on the rock is whale watching.
Humpback whales are travelling up the coast this time of year.
Body Surfer
We are expecting one of the worst storms of the year but there is always someone who will go surfing. 
I was a bit close for this shot and had to run to avoid getting wet when a big wave hit.
Visit Unknown Mami to see what is happening in the world today.
