Above are a couple of pics from the Australia Day long weekend at Rottnest.

I also put together a video of my favourite swim through at long reach that I titled ‘Dare to Live…inspired by the track of the same name by Andrea Botichelli.

All shot on the Olympus OMD.

I have a version with that sound track as well!

The video can be found here

Little Armstrong Fish Balls

I shot this one last weekend whilst free diving through a cave at Little Armstrong. My wife and I spent our honeymoon in this little bay on my first boat called ‘Reckless….Don’t Be So’!

It was then and still is a very special bay to me and is a great snorkel for anyone venturing over to Rotto!

Some images from this weekend’s diving at Rottnest.

The self is of me catching a horse of a crayfish…the only thing I forgot what the saddle so that I could ride him!

Another exciting tine on the weekend was when on the first dive i saw a school of golden fish looking really cool, when my battery ran out!

On the last dive of the day, guess what…another even better school of golden fish appeared to make up for the earlier loss!

Very cool!

Stark Bay Tranquility

Another image from the beautiful sunrise at Stark Bay on Sunday morning.

It is unbelievable to think that whilst I was watching this scene evolve that residents in our hills were about to face one of the worst fires we have had in Perth and that 5 homes were about to be lost!

Sort of adds another dimension to the image when you know that only about 40km away such loss and tragedy was about to happen!

I hope everyone out there is safe from the bush fires in Perth and have managed to escape the heat!

Lee and I ventured out as far away from the land as possible and went out near the West End of Rottnest Island at Stark Bay for the weekend and what a weekend it was!

Best yet for the season for sure and the sunrise this morning was picture perfect!

I am looking West here looking out towards the West End of Rottnest.

If you are in the fire zone in Perth, remember kit can be replaced, but lives can’t and fires move at extraordinary speeds when they get moving!
