Big Brook Dam


Big Brook Dam is located deep in the south-west region of Western Australia near the forestry town of Pemberton. The site is managed by the Department of Environment and Conservation and was built to supplement the Pemberton town and Trout Hatchery water supply. Big Brook Dam is just one of the many DEC campsites throughout the south-west showcasing the magnificent state we live in.

Burns Beach Sunsets #2

Burns Beach is one of my favourite local beaches to photograph. Rock features on the north side of the groyne provide a great foreground for the magical sunsets the West Australian coast is renowned for. Next time I hope to arrive just a little earlier so I can get to another location further to the south of this spot.

Narrows Bridge

Last night I headed out to get photos of the remnants of tropical cyclone Iggy. We didn’t get any of the wild weather that was forecast, (kind of a relief for Perth because it was due to be a little nasty). So I wondered around and snapped a couple of photos of the surrounds. I was taking photos with another storm photographer at the time, and she was in the same spot that I took this shot from. I didn’t even know there was such symmetry in the construction of the Narrows bridge, and it was actually really stunning underneath it. It was far too good to pass on the opportunity to capture it. Many thanks to Marie Freitag for finding this spot.

Remnants of Tropical Cyclone Iggy

Over the last week or so, Tropical Cyclone Iggy has been lingering off the West Australian coast, threatening to cross with potentially severe winds and rain. He didn’t.
Iggy was first classified as a cyclone in the early hours of Australia day (January 26th). He was situated roughly 820km NW of Exmouth and 970km WNW of Karratha. Ever so slowly moving towards the Pilbara coast.
The Pilbara was put on cyclone watch as Iggy slowly intensified. Initially Iggy was forecasted to reach Cat 3 or even Cat 4 by the time it hit the Pilbara, but this never eventuated.
Iggy played around in the Indian Ocean making a couple of small dashes towards the coast and then retreating. From what I was hearing from weather forecasters, this cyclone was one of the more difficult cyclones to future forecast track. All meteorological models for the area were showing all different scenarios.
Iggy eventually started to make his way south into ‘cooler’ waters and very slowly started to weaken, and eventually was declared an ex tropical cyclone in the morning on Feb 2nd.
In the late evening on Feb 2nd 2012 Ex-Tropical Cyclone Iggy made landfall near Jurien Bay, 250km north of Western Australia’s capital Perth.
Gale force winds and high tides with rough surf affected some coastal sites near the Gascoyne town of Geraltdon. Beach erosion was observed and strong winds battered the coastal town throughout the day.

Remnants of Iggy hit areas around Perth. The coastal town of Lancelin, 140km N of Perth received almost 98.8mm of rain from 3pm Feb 2nd – 12am the following day.
Perth received 20.2mm.

The photo was taken at about 3am as Ex tropical cyclone Iggy was dumping his last bit of rain onto Perth.

Pyrocumulonimbus

Thanks Wiki.
This pyrocumulonimbus cloud formed over a recent fire. The pyrocumulonimbus cloud (pyroCb) is a type of cumulus cloud formed above a source of heat such as a wildfire and may sometimes even extinguish the fire that formed it. It is the most extreme manifestation of pyrocumulus.

Coral Bay


On a recent trip up north I was lucky enough to drop into Coral Bay. This was my first ever visit here. On some of the most remote areas in Australia and surrounded out in the water by the World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef, it is one of Western Australia premier tourist locations, and I certainly saw why. As you can see from the photo the water is a brilliant turquoise colour, and it is filled with a massive abundance of fish of all different species, some of which will swim right up to you. The coral reef is only a very short swim from the beach itself, or you can take one of the snorkelling tours that will take you out further.
Ningaloo Reef is a know location that the magnificent Whale Shark and Manta Ray visit annually.
If you are visiting the North West of Western Australia, mark this place down. A must see.

Lightning over Gnangara Pine Plantation

Lightning over Gnangara Pine Plantation

A thunderstorm passing through the northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia on the 16th Feb 2011. Summer storms like this one can potentially start fires when they pass through, especially when they pass straight over the tinder dry needles of the pine plantation. Lucky on this day the storm brought a decent rain with it. Other days, we are not so lucky.

El Questro

El Questro gorge is situated on El Questro Station in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Another place you must visit when you are in the area. Well actually it is that good, I would make a trip up there just to see El Questro Station. The station itself if just under 1,000,000 acres in size, so there is a fair amount to see from Emma Gorge to the Zebedee Thermal Springs and El Questro Gorge.
I hope to return again in the near future and stay at the resort. It truly is gods country out there.
