Matilda Bay Sunset

After getting down to Matilda Bay a couple of mornings ago, I wanted to come here again and try the evening. Tonight was a great night, not only because I was able to capture this shot, but also I was able to meet up with some fellow photographers from around the area.

Matilda Bay Sunrise

A freezing Saturday morning didn’t deter myself or fellow photographer Tom to miss a great opportunity to capture the sunrise over Matilda Bay and Perth City. The forecast was for next to no wind, which was ideal to capture some great reflections over the very photogenic Swan River.

Perth City from South Perth

The first photo from a couple I took tonight. I tried out my 10stop filter for the first time. Mixed feelings with this, next time ill try it again in better light condition as this shot was exposed for 450 seconds. A bit too long for my liking.

This was done a bit more traditional, with a 5 shot stitch using PS5. And 2 Lee ND grad Filters.
Perth is just one of those cities you just don’t get sick of taking photos of. The sky is always different so you get these magnificent backdrops showcasing the city itself. With the 3rd skyscraper pretty much complete, the South Perth foreshore is about the only place where you can manage to get all 3 buildings, (with the city itself) in one go.

Perth City Under Thick Fog

It was very eerie this morning on the Swan River. Forecasted very light winds was the attraction to launch Ralphs boat on the Swan River with friends.
The light winds and a temperature inversion with colder, moist air being trapped on the ground by a layer of warmer air above, created the fog. The city was effectively trapped inside a cloud.
This was taken at 0845 this morning.

Ord River

Last year I was fortunate enough to visit the Kimberley. It was my first time in the area, and I certainly wasn’t let down. After many years of people telling me to get up here, I finally did. As it was for work, I wasn’t able to get out and take many photos. I will however be back there next wet season to capture the fantastic landscape, with the monsoonal thunderstorms.

The Ord River is about 320kms long with the headwaters located below the 983-metre Mount Wells and initially flows east and around the edge of Purnululu National Park before heading North through Lake Argyle then passing west of Kununurra and discharging into theCambridge Gulf, which is at the southern extremity of the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, Timor Sea. The river has 35 tributaries of which the five longest are Bow River, Nicholson River, Dunham River, Panton River and Negri Rivers.
The lower reaches of the river support an important wetland area known as the Ord River Floodplain, a protected area which contains numerous mangrove forests, lagoons, creeks, flats and extensive floodplains.

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.

Donnelly River

On a recent trip down through the south-west of Western Australia I passed through Manjimup. On a previous trip through the same area a few years back we visited the Donnelly River but I didn’t have the camera with me. Not forgetting my camera a second time, I managed to fire off a few shots. I also should’ve brought my marron nets.
