The Weekend Australian

I heard reports that the surf was up so I grabed my cameras and headed for the north end of Coogee Beach, a place famous for local kids in big surf. I was pleased to fing the locals kids revelling in the massive swell with 3 to 4 meter waves crashing onto the rocks. Some of the photo sequences are really dramatic.

"These would have to rate as some of my favorite photos" Freatured on the cover of the The Weekend Australian Feb 2013. Photographs taken during storm evet at Coogee Beach Feb 2013 after cyclonic winds hit eastern seaboard. These photos were chosen to feature this national interest story on Australia's weather.

ABC Radio National Podcast Imagine the view of Australia from space right now. La Nina and her flooding rains have had a huge impact on our nation and not just on the coastline. The flaming reds and burnished browns that our sunburnt country is renowned for have been replaced by huge swaths of green and are positively humming with life. Peter Elfes has spent the past three years documenting the transformation.

ABC Radio National Late Night Live In two weeks' time the Arabunna people of South Australia will be formally recognised as the native title owners of a huge slab of that state, including Lake Eyre.
