So what does one do when sitting at home on a beautiful day recovering from a shoulder op?
Work up some images that haven’t been looked at yet is what!
At the end of many of the True North cruises we have a sunset raft up somewhere cool and in this instance we were in the Buccaneer Archipelago with a very cool thunderhead brewing away to the East.
I shot the below panorama whilst we were being gently twisted around by a whirlpool spinning the raft up ever so gently whilst being serenaded by one of our crew members, Jo Lee and one of the Guests.
A very pleasant way to see the day out.
For those interested, my op went well and am definitely on the road to recovery!
We are now on True North for a week in the Raja Ampats in West Papua and were treated with a beautiful sunset for the first evening on board.
Let the games begin!
The grey before the colour the other night at Rottnest.
This is an 8 image double layer stitch with the Nikon D850 and the 24-70mm lens at 24mm.
What an awesome show we had on Friday evening over at Rottnest!
I was out this morning doing some drone coaching with a mate and low and behold managed to capture this little gem without trying too hard.
Whilst down at our Son’s place for Mother’s day, I managed to sneak out for a well timed fly of the drone to capture this image of the approaching storm.
I just got it in before it started bucketing down!
We are now back off True North after another very cool adventure in West Papua.
Here are a few more images from the trip, some of which are showing a sweet little storm front coming in over True North whilst we were out diving.
Made for a nice backdrop!
I think anyone in WA could be excused for thinking we are still in the middle of winter!
Last weekends storms would rival any mid winter storm and it was devilishly cold to boot.
Lee and I headed down to Safety Bay last night for a meal with friends and I managed to duck out just before Sunset to capture the nice light that was sneaking in under the menacing sunset clouds.
What attracted me to this image was how the light was dancing on the old yacht and in order to fully tell the story, I decided to do a stitch.
I then spent the evening working up some images with my mate Russell, that he captured in Tonga with Darren Jew recently and I am pleased to report we now have a new and very keen photog in our midst…and a photog with a very good eye for a newby!
We are going to see Saul this week to kit him up with some new Nikon gear!
