I grew up down here. When I was a young boy, my dad use to take myself and my brother here to go hunt blue manna crabs along this beach. It brings back some sensational memories, and one particular time when a crab decided that it was going to have a go at chomping on my finger. Ouchie!!
Sometime I have to pinch myself while flying up and down this coastline. The bluest waters, the whitest sands that continue over the horizon, we really are very fortunate.
After the final day finished of the Ninety Degrees Five (ND5) seminar/workshop, I found myself wondering where I could get one last photograph before setting out for our 3 hour drive back up to the northern suburbs of Perth. Busselton Jetty was an easy choice, with its bridge stretching out almost 2km into Geographe Bay, this iconic jetty is the southern hemispheres longest wooden jetty.
Flying out over Geographe Bay, Busselton.
I am pretty lucky to have the opportunity to fly every so often and I am even luckier to sometimes fly over spectacular areas like this. Geographe Bay is located in the south-west region of Western Australia. Cape Naturaliste can be seen on the horizon and is usually the first place in the area to be on the receiving end of strong winter cold fronts, where gusts over 100km/h are not uncommon.
