Taken a couple of days before the coast was to be hit by cyclone Oma. I came to the beach to photograph surfers who were taking advantage of the increasing swell. These workman were busy repairing/resealing the windows to the restaurant there as due to the bigger seas brought on by the impending cyclone and full moon the surf actually rises to the windows. The restaurant has been flooded before in 2016.https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3626016/Gold-Coast-restaurant-Rick-Shores-flooded-storm-swell-crashes-through.html
Happy to say the cyclone never actually hit the coast and as far as I know the restaurant incurred no damage.

Nice photo but the horizon is slanted and I'm no sure what's going on.

I think you're going to need a bigger ladder :)

My pick for a ribbon. Good find, setup whatever.
