The waters around Little Beach at Two Peoples Bay are out of this world. Even with the cloud cover we had at sunset last night, the water still shined an incredible turquoise colour.
I could go on and on about this place, but you have to see it for yourself.
I’ll post of pano of the whole beach when I return home.
I headed to Two Peoples Bay yesterday evening with Shawn Hayward & Peter Coe. The sunset provided some incredible light, and we arrived just in time to capture it.
Mount Manypeaks is just to the east of the national park, and looks to rise up straight out of the ocean.
Another magical location on the south-coast.
The low dark rain (drizzle) bearing clouds came over Albany last night, which was good because another shot that I have been wanting to capture presented itself in front of me, and without the low clouds and sea-mist/spray it wouldn’t have been possible.
Another perspective of the ever beautiful southern coastline.
The south coast of Western Australia is constantly being shaped by the relentless force of the Southern Ocean battering the cliffs. Strong winter storms bring the swells right up to where I was standing. Kind of hard to imagine on days like this.
I headed back out again with Shawn Hayward down here in Albany.
We arrived at Emu point, and it was pretty busy, people walking their dogs, kids running up and down the beach. Not the most ideal scenario to set up for a few photographs. However as the sun set, the crowd departed and left the beach pretty much vacant.
I hope you like my effort from last night.
It doesn’t matter where you are in WA the sunsets are always stunning, the Albany coastline is no different.
I’ve still got another 4 full days here, and cannot wait to see what they throw at me.
I caught up with friend and local photographer Shawn Hayward (VBI Photography) here in Albany yesterday evening as cloud started to become quite heavy over the coastal port city. I haven’t seen much of this cloud stuff for a number of weeks up in Perth, so the sight of it brought a big smile to my face.
Islands off the coast of Albany set up a great composition for another shot I’ve been wanting to get for a while. The south-coast, the place that just keeps giving.
On a recent trip to Albany I made sure I got out every possible morning. The whole southern coastline is packed with areas that are incredibly photogenic, you just need to get out and go for a walk.
The morning was crisp on the south coast, but that didn’t deter either my mate Buz nor I from heading to the beach for a spot of fishing.
After catching quite a few Herring , he saw a Salmon chase a school of fish towards the rocks. He quickly changed rigs and threw his line back in. Unfortunately after that no Salmon or Herring stayed around. Never the less it was a great morning to be out and about to enjoy what the south-coast of WA has got to offer.
Little Beach is currently ranked #3 best beach in Australia.
Little Beach is quite that, Little. Located at Two Peoples Bay National Park in the Great Southern region, of Western Australia. The waters are turquoise blue, the sand it bleached white.
Bays like Little Beach litter the south coast, the water is quite cool, but can be refreshing when the temperature hits 40C.
My final full day in Albany, I decided to join my mate Buz for a spot of fishing down at Salmon Holes.
The salmon are due to start moving through the area soon, but though we might be able to snag one of the early runners.
Unfortunately we didn’t catch any salmon, but we did manage plenty of herring.
The sky was overcast with a couple of small gaps, so the potential was there for a nice start to the day. Lucky I decided to bring my camera down.
Last week I had the absolute pleasure of shooting with photographer Tina Bartley. I am always in awe of her work. Check some of her stuff out at
This is one of the panorama’s I managed. The ship in the background is an old chase ship used when whaling was being carried out in the area. Long gone have the whaling days of Albany, what is left provides great photographic opportunities . I hope you enjoy this shot.
