Fayes Bay Rottnest Island

We had a cracker of a day here at Rottnest yesterday, so after a relaxing dive I decided to fly the drone initially then take the Nikon for a run around some of the bays.

Fayes Bay is a very popular beach in between Longreach and Geordie Bay.

The opportunity to shoot this beach with only one umbrella in there is very rare!

Rottnest Lake St

Classic Weather out at Rottnest Island this weekend.

Here is a stitch showing the proximity of the Lakes to Gordie Bay.

One of the amazing things we found out there this weekend is that the mud from the Swan flowing out from the recent rains made the water look like it had been tainted with a giant tea bag!

On the way home I lost steering and had to drive the boat all the way back with the throttles! A bit of a challenge but it all worked out in the end!

Toodyay Sunset

I decided to head out to Toodyay last night after work and just before sunset this little scene came together. I was shooting with the Nikon when i saw the first rainbow and then quickly got the Phantom 4 Pro up in the air as quickly as I could.

This is one of numerous images and video I have of the scene. a 10 image stitch which ended up 12,000 pixels wide by 4,000 high.

Pretty happy with the result.

True North Refit time!

The mighty True North is now in our sheds at Evolution Commercial undergoing our annual refit.

We are repainting most of the True North this year and other major jobs include both stern tubes being replaced and the stbd exhaust sponson and side plates are being replaced as well.

As per our normal refit practice, she will present better than new at the end of the month and totally ready for this years cruise season.

Our Evolution team and some of the True North team are working 24 hours shifts to ensure we get on top of the big jobs early!

Lord Howe Gold!

We have now left Lord Howe on the way home, but on my last day I did manage to capture some gold!

An early flight with the drone produced a very nice 10 image stitch of the mountains with a very cool mushroom cloud formation sitting heavily on the top of the mountains.

Going for a bit of a trek down some palm walkways produced some nice HDR’s as well.
