I think the title says it all about this image. The Rowley Shoals is located about 200nm North West of Broome and we are just doing our last trip to the Shoals for this season as we speak.
The Rowleys have the big tides that are prevalent in our North West and as such a scene like this can literally change before your eyes. It was not long after this that there was a metre of water where the sand lines are and a small Hammerhead shark cruising through enjoying the warm clear waters.
The name of the Island is Bedwell Island and it is the scene of our famous True North sunset cocktails on one of the evenings whilst we are over there.
Diving in this area is as good as it gets and I feel that I am qualified to make that statement given that I have been diving for 38 years and have dived at most of the iconic dive sites around the world. The Rowley’s has everything from one of the best wall dives on the planet, to dives with huge Potato Cod with plenty of untouched marine life and coral to view as it has been for centuries.
Just one more post for this evening on the same theme as the previous with a stern view of the mighty True North just as the sun kisses the horizon.
I had a need to go through some Rowley Shoals shots today and found this one lurking.
A good example of sunrise colours in amongst the calmest sunrise I have ever seen I think. If I remember correctly I was so excited with what I saw out the window, I clean forgot to wake up Mikie Mike Fletcher!
He might forgive me one day in the next millennium! 🙂
Here is an altered landscape Rotto style. It is unfortunate that young people seem to feel that it is OK to leave their ‘mark’ in beautiful locations such as this, but one consolation at Rottnest is that they seem to at least mainly only target this location next to the basin.
I challenged one group there one day digging away at the rocks and was curtly told, they were only doing what other had done just before them…so that seemed to make it OK in their mind. I stood there till they left!
Well, what a beautiful weekend we had here in Perth and what better way to kick it off but to spend the weekend at my most favourite place on the planet..Rottnest Island! I went over on a mate Riv and we surfed the morning away very successfully at Stricklands and then cruised back to the Quokka Arms for lunch and to watch the back end of the footy.
We caught up with some Rotto mates we hadn’t seen since last season then around to long reach for some shots and more canapes after sunset with the same crew.
My mate Jamie Paterson recently asked for some Rotto shots…here you go mate…Rotto colours at their best!
The very Northerly swell made for some sweet swell lines going out through the channel at Transit!
Here is another image from my Freo walk around the other day. There are a number of things I like about the image including the door slightly ajar, the arrows on the road and the look on the building exterior>
I did another walk around in Fremantle the other day and I must say that it is a fun way to spend a few hours. I left my camera bag behind and just ventured out with my camera tripod and 17mm Tilt shift to see what I could find.
The images above are just a few of the resultant images.
I was going through a few old files today for another project and found these 2 lurking from Trinidad.
I like the rustic look and the aged look they both have.
I was just going through some background images for a mate and found this one as part of the cloud floret series I have posted previously.
Amazing what you can find lurking in your hard drive when you look! 🙂
During a recent visit to Paynes Find with fellow Photog, Neal Pritchard I spotted this scene near where we camped for the night.
The last light colours were hitting the tops of the trees and making for a tranquil and colourful end to the day!
