Big picture


buzz October 2019

Coastlines are dynamic environments, constantly
shaped and reshaped by the high energy of
breaking waves, like this force of nature crashing
down onto the shallow seabed at North Avoca
Beach on the New South Wales Central Coast.
Taken from above using a drone, this stunning
image was a finalist in the landscape category
of the 2019 Australian Geographic Nature
Photographer of the Year competition. It can be
seen, along with all the other best images from
this year’s competition, at an exhibition at
the South Australian Museum, Adelaide,
until 10 November and at the Powerhouse
Museum, Sydney, until 20 October.
