One of the best beaches in the world!

The title above is bold and probably controversial as many readers will think…’no I have been to a better one here and there etc’, but I do believe I am qualified to make a statement like ‘The Basin at Rottnest Island would, in my opinion, be up there as one of the best beaches anywhere!

I have done a lot of travelling in my time for various reasons of both work and play and yet every time I would past the Basin at Rottnest Island, I think…’wow’ how beautiful is that! From the crystal clear water, to the natural harbour surrounded by a large limestone cliff looking down on the swimming beach to the reef lines adding interest to the beach, the Basin has it all!

Last week I picked up my new Zeis 21mm lense from Team digital and all of the recent posts have been shot with that lense. Impressively sharp to say the least!

Bedwell Clarity

This shot is obviously taken at a similar location to my previous Bedwell Island shot, but the amazing thing about this place is the tides and how quickly the same composition changes. In the 20 minutes or so that I was shooting here, the tide went from totally covering the sand lines to them being fully exposed!

PT Gui couldn’t handle the stitch so I pulled it together manually in Photoshop. I have worked out a pretty cool technique that works for these sort of shots where there is not enough constant detail.

Hope you like the shot!
