Sunset Fun at Rottnest

We were having some drinks on a mates Riv last weekend and the kids were having a ball jumping off the roof of the Riv.

I think that this shot typifies what a great place Rotto is to bring up kids as they are always out and about in the water and generally outside having fun.

Here's is my image from the True North day!!!

This is the best image that i was able to muster for the True North photog day. Last image of the day at dark O’clock!

These 2 boats are local Rotto Runners as I am called the ‘Nor Don’ and ‘Incognito’. They had obviously spent the day out west somewhere and were cruising back to their moorings at Longreach for the night.


This Yacht was built by Evolution Yachts, the company I was CEO of for a couple of years for a very nice family who live just down from True North Ashore at Eagle Bay.

I happened to come across them on the way out to Rotto the other day and took some time to get some shots of her launching the Jennica.

Unfortunately there was not quite enough wind to inflate the Jennica properly, but this shot shows the size of the vessel. It has a fully blown super yacht finish both externally and internally….a superb vessel in every way.

The vessel is 29m long and is truly designed for world cruising.

This is the same yacht I shot down at Eagle Bay.

Marjorie Bay Bait Ball

On the way back from Eagle Bay we spotted this huge bait ball getting hammered from above and below. We suspect Tuna and or Mackies below and everything from Mutton Birds to Seagulls above the water. The water was simply boiling with these poor little fishing trying to survive the onslaught.

Fortunately I had my trusty 1D with me and was able to capture the moment!

Perhaps it would have been better on this occasion to have a rod and lure rather than a camera!!

Eagle Bay Rottnest Island

I took a mate of mine to my favourite dive on the island over the weekend and then pinged off this pano. The interesting details in this shot are awesome…a little like those ‘where’s Wally’ cartoons that were going around a few years ago.

In just about every segment in this shot there is something happening.

There is a cave that goes straight under the rocks I took this shot from and then the caves and swim throughs from there on are just awesome!
