Train Set


Train Set, originally uploaded by Michael Sutton (was Sutto 007).

Taken with my Lensbaby composer, it was a hot dry day, usually this spot is cold and wet and all the colours of the plants and brick work just pop out, today the colours were very washed out and colourless, so I decided to convert the image using Silver Efex Pro.

Spring storm clouds over Cronulla Beach.
Pays to have some time off work, but would you go swimming in this?

As always before I go home I drove down to the beach as the sky was getting very dark over the ocean and it look like rain, when I got out of my car I couldnt believe the cloud formations, looked like there could have been an Alien spaceship up above the clouds.


Only a little Photoshop was used here just in case you think the cloud formation was not as it is here, a little Vignetting and my watermark, that's it.

While down the south coast on Saturday morning with Justin and Jason from The Sutherland Shire Flickr group, we meet this old bloke swimming in the 15 degree tidal pool. His first lap in the pool was hillarious, every time he raised his head to breath he let out a scream of agony from the cold water, yet when he got out of the pool after 15 minutes of swimming he claimed the water was warmer than outside, I still don't believe him.

14m plunge: man falls off cliff

14m plunge: man falls off cliff
February 15, 2009

A 70-year-old man has been airlifted to hospital suffering hypothermia after spending the night at the bottom of a southern Sydney cliff following a 14-metre fall.

The man spent the night on the rocks at the bottom of Cronulla Point, at the southern end of the beach, after falling 14 metres from the top of the cliff sometime on Saturday night.

A passer-by alerted emergency services just before 7am (AEDT) on Sunday.

The man had fallen from the cliff walk known as The Esplanade, near the intersection with Elizabeth Place.

"He's fallen down there sometime during the night," an ambulance spokesman said.

"We're not sure of the circumstances but, obviously, a bystander has called us after hearing him calling, and they've called us.

"We've found him in a fairly confused and semi-conscious state."

The man is now in St George Hospital in a serious but stable condition, suffering hypothermia.

It was not yet known if he suffered other injuries as a result of the fall, the ambulance spokesman said.

(I was down at the beach on Sunday morning taking photos at the rock pools in the background, as I was leaving to go home I heard sirens and decided to investigate, I started walking around the rocks and was told to go away and dont take any photo's, so as this went against my grain I decided to change locations and start taking photo's. I met up with a guy some 20 minutes later who claimed to be a pro from the "Daily Telegraph", I offered some of my photo's to him. He proceeded to copy my photo's to his portable hard drive and then delete my photo's from my card, oops, so most of the photo's I took that morning were deleted from my card, he does however have a copy that I now need to go and pick up from him)

While sitting down having coffee on Saturday morning after getting together for another Flickr meet up with The Sutherland Shire Flickr Group this old bloke sat on a bench near us looking like death warmed up, sucking on his cancer sticks, infecting us with his smoke, why do people do this? He is digging his own grave.
