Beautiful picture of Thirteenth Beach, near Barwon Heads, Bellarine Peninsula, Victoria, Australia. Thirteenth Beach near Barwon Heads is a popular surf spot. It was very cloudy and not the sort of lighting to take a shot, but we set up, composed the shot and waited around for more than and hour. A gap opened up in the clouds and spotlighted the beach, it only lasted a few seconds. January 2003.

The patience of the photographer. Marion told me the other day that it was more like two and a half hours, and they were not then yet organised enough to have chairs. They subsequently bought some lightweight stools. But that's what it takes to get good shots - the right light. Just like Rembrandt before him, Joe knew the importance of getting the light right!
