Chilled Offering

Chilled Offering

By © Johnny Abegg

Chilled Offering is a photo I took for a community mailout I do here in Byron Bay called Common Ground. It was a cool and moody morning on the eve of Autumn, on the 23rd of February, just before 7am. The clouds where moving swiftly from South to North, with a still Southerly wind blowing at Tallows Beach, on the southern side of Cape Byron.

…a certain magic of aloneness, intwined with the roar of an untamed ocean.
— Johnny

There was nobody on the beach, in which lives a certain magic of aloneness, intwined with the roar of an untamed ocean. As the clouds shift with every moving moment, I was lucky enough to capture this image of the sea, with a Nikon D7000 and a 35mm/1.8 lens.

To me this photo represents the dark times our oceans are having with our need to exploit it’s very beauty, food and resources, yet this darkness is overshadowed by rays of light, a metaphor to us that we can also be it’s saviour, and walk forth a patron of the sea.
