– Bunker Bay –

I am currently south at the moment attending a workshop to refine my photography skills a touch more. One of the massive positives being down here, is that I get to stay at the Bunker Bay Pullmans resort, right on the beach. Bleached white sand, clear turquoise blue waters, so I couldn’t resist a morning shoot down at the shoreline.
Hope you like my two shots I managed to capture this morning.

I hope to capture many more images on my trip down here, so expect a few more posts……

Dales Gorge Sunset

Dales Gorge is probably the most visited gorge in the Karijini National Park. It is home to Fortescue Falls and the tranquil Fern Pool, a short walk upstream.

Department of Environment and Conservation camp grounds can also be found at Dales gorge, and for a small nightly fee you can set up for a few night to really take in one of the most gorgeous national parks in Australia

Goat Farm, PMBC, Perth Hills

The ‘Goat Farm’ is an off road – downhill mountain bike circuit located on the Darling Scarp in Greenmount, about 30km NE of Perth. The Farm has a few challenging down hill circuits ranging from difficult to very difficult. This is the first time I have visited the track since a big fall a few years ago. The result, an almost written off bike, and a very close to written off Jordan. It was that crash that saw me not ride a bike for 3 years, and to be honest I was a bit hesitant to visit again. But a bit of persuasion from good mate, and very skilled mountain bike Ralph, saw me take the plunge and head up with him early this morning. I took my camera gear, one to get a few shots of Ralph doing his thing, but also the track is visited regularly by very skilled riders. So the chance to get a few shots egged me to get the DSLR out.
We arrived with no-one else in the the carpark, we got on the bike and I did a few runs, it was great to finally get back on the seat, and it didn’t really take that long to get back into the rhythm, even if I was a touch slow.

After the ride, I got my camera out, went up to the skills area to get a few shots of Ralph, but while I was there a couple of younger riders were ripping up part of the downhill track. A few pics!

We will both be back here again very soon. Love it!

Mindarie Marina

Mindarie Marina is located 30 minutes north of Perth City in Western Australia. This man made marina boasts some of the best marina estates in the state with multi million dollar properties leading right down to the waters edge, most with private jetties.

This is the first time I have taken photos here, so expect many more 🙂

Amazing what filters can do. My last shot was from the same location as this one. Only differences, no 10 stop ND filter, and this time it was taken in portrait.

Conspicuous Cliffs #3


I just love this spot, I stayed here for as long as possible. Will have to come back again and get down to the beach to photograph the whole area. The sun hits so many different angles as it is setting.
This particular shot is from the same spot as my previous 2, but I used some different setting on my camera. The photos were taken in a portrait frame, the previous 2 were in Landscape framing.

Conspicuous Cliff

After flying over this spot many times in the past, I have always wanted to get come here and take a shot. Today I was very fortunate to be able to return here. The southern coast of Western Australia brings spectacular coastlines. I may be slightly biased, though I am sure I am not the only one who believes we have some of the most stunning coastlines in Australia, if not the world. I love this place. So many different angles to shoot here. I wish to come back in the near future and snap more photos.

Perth Thunderstorms 12th December 2011

Wowwee. What a crazy night out last night. I haven’t seen that kind of lightning action for a long time in Perth. I know other places around the country get this all the time, but for Perth it was a great start to hopefully a fairly active summer storm season. Perth had a total of 43.6mm in the gauge to 9am this morning (the 3rd wettest December day), while other places around the south west land division had record falls in and around 70mm. Williams, a town 150km SE of Perth, had the wettest December day ever and second wettest day of all time with 125.6mm.
It was all caused by a mid level disturbance that was situated off our west coast and was fed moisture by a decaying tropical cyclone that has been lingering around in the Indian Ocean the past week.

Now this rain is great for our dams, but take a thought for our farmers. After a better then average winter rain cycle that produced the best crops for a number of years, this rain is an unwanted friend, hampering harvesting efforts and in some cases completely destroying entire crops.

I was very fortunate to meet up with some other weathernuts from WA based forum WAweathergroup.com to watch and record this system approach and come over the coast.

If you are interested in the weather in any shape or form then this forum is the place to be.  A West Australian based group of very friendly, enthusiastic and open minded people with common interests who are willing to answer any weather related question. You don’t have to be from Western Australia  to join as they have forums that cover most topics from around the country and the parts of the world.   The forum has members throughout the state that provide regular observations of the current weather conditions affecting their area.
The group is heavily involved in a social media capacity as well with active Twitter and Facebook groups.

Twitter : @TheWAWG
Facebook : Wa WeatherGroup

So if this interests you I would highly recommend joining.

Here are a couple of photos from last night.

If you would like to know the settings for each of the separate photos then just PM me.

Till next time……
