What did you do on the weekend?

We went and shot this sea stack on the south coast of Tasmania, an amazing feature about 4 meters wide and 60 meters tall. Quite an epic adventure with big packs full of glass and rope to make the images possible. It was a long and cold day despite the blue skies in the picture, with the wind blowing 30 knots straight from Antarctica. But for all the hardship the images were worth it. Such a great day with some amazing people. Sometimes photography is all about the images. Sometimes it is about the adventure as well.

PS the stack is so big and the vantage points so few this image is actually a stitched vertical panorama of 22 images shot while hanging in space above the sea. This is so we could see that it is a detached pillar and fit the while thing in one frame.
