Geordie Bay outer view. One of the more picturesque bays at Rottnest and protected from most winds other than a Northerly.
This is the brewing storm front out over Northam last week with the Wheat Silos in the foreground.
As you can see, the front stretched for quite some distance.
This left over puddle from the low pressure system caused by last week’s cyclone made of some nice reflections just out of Northam the other day.
This sweet little system was travelling very fast and I only had just enough time to set up the tripod, do the stitch and get the hell outta there!
Classic conditions at Rotto yesterday.
The best yet for the summer season and after a very enjoyable dive, I set out in the tender to get some shots.
As it turned out everything alined beautifully to make it possible for this image.
I had a light Easterly blowing and a low tide, but high enough to just let the tender drift with the motor up and I just did that.
I drifted for about 15 minutes pinging away with stunning scenes like this over the outer reef at Fayes Bay.
If the tide had been higher, the colours would not have been there, if the tide had been lower, I would not have been able to drift over the reef.
If the wind had been stronger, the colours would have been lost and if the sun was not in the same spot the colours would have been lost.
Timing is everything!
