As we run down the hours to say goodbye to 2014, I thought it appropriate to repost a few shots from this years adventures, which included a trip to the Dandenongs with AB (Andrew Brown), a Kimberley Trip and Bizmark trip on True North, a Kangaroo Island trip, a horse riding adventure with Jeff Muir and Shannon Horse Riding Adventure and numerous local adventures as opportunities presented themselves.
On the Ship Building front, we had one of the most challenging years and also one of the best years, now panning out to be very exciting for the next few years with some really cool stuff to create over that time. We have assembled a great team and all projects are really gaining momentum now.
This year has more Rottnest Adventures, a True North adventure or 2, a Japan Skiing adventure and possibly a surfing adventure in the middle of the year.
The team at North Star Cruises are really hitting their straps now and the product is impeccable, which was evident on my last cruise and how many multiple past passengers we had on board. Well done North Star team!
I hope you all have some exciting things planned for 2015 and I look fwd to seeing all of your adventures over the year.
Remember….’it ain’t a rehearsal’!
For those of you who were up at 0500 this morning, we had a cracker of a sunrise….for those who slept in….what can I say…doh! 🙂
Sunrise followed by some more whiting and cray fishing.
A beautiful dive this morning as well.
I set out at 0400 this morning to capture the pinks lakes in all their glory and was not disappointed.
The lakes get the distinct pink look just before sunrise and just after sunset with the pink glow that happens around those times and the glow reflects off the water.
It was a beautiful way to start the day…but early!
I also got to see the fairy Turns having their early morning baths which was also quite a sight!
I have recently found a new cave system at Rottnest that also happens to be nicely loaded with Crayfish as well, so apart from being a beautiful place to dive, they are loading me up nicely with a feed every day at the moment!
On the way to golf last Friday with some riding mates, I spotted this beautiful tree on a round about not far from my place.
I thought a ping today would be appropriate as the right image on Xmas eve.
Enjoy and Merry Xmas to you all.
A few weeks ago I noticed a storm front brewing on the way to Cross Fit, so I took a bit of a deviation and pinged this stitch on the way there.
Worth the deviation I think!
After processing this image, I think I am going to focus on more portraits when i visit PNG again next year.
Their faces have such character and expression.
A few weeks ago the sea breeze calmed off around sunset so I headed out for an impromptu shoot at Fremantle.
I look forward to that calmness coming back again as we have been flogged with wind this weekend, that’s for sure!
This morning was the day of our traditional Xmas ride with the riding crew.
The ride was a follow up from the other tradition of 9 holes of golf yesterday afternoon and then a few laughs down at the Swan Yacht club.
The start of the golf day was not good with me managing to pull a muscle in my elbow on the first drive! The rest of the day was somewhat painful you could say, but I battled on and helped where I could for the Ambrose team.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my loyal blog and Facebook followers for your kind comments and words of encouragement and to also to my friends and associates in general.
Merry Xmas and stay safe over the Xmas madness period and I look forward to catching up in the new year.
A little further out this time and some beautiful highlights, water swirls and textures in the foreground of this shot.
Would look great about 2m wide I reckon!
