Goanna’s Stars

Goannas Stars

Had an interesting weekend this weekend for sure!

It started off with Luminous Landscapes running a story they did on me which in turn jumped my daily visit tally to 1,000 hits yesterday! Very cool start to the weekend for sure.

The next mission I set myself was to venture down South to catch up with buddies, Christian Fletcher, Ian Wise, Tony Armstrong and Paul Pitchugan.

The mission was to do a night shoot at Kilcarnup and after driving all the way down and planning the whole evening, when we arrived at the entrance to Kilcarnup, there was a ranger there turning people back as they had closed the beach as a dead whale was being buried by an escavator…..dam!

So where to we thought and after a bit of brain storming we decided on Goannas.

This was actually one of the last shots from the evening, so there are certainly more to come!

It ended up being quite an adventure and a lot of fun.

How cool were the clouds today! Managed to ping a few shots off at Lake Clifton and the Estuary on the way home…stay tuned for those as well!

The nest!

I have been sitting on this image for a while after the shoot I did with Ian Wise down at Kicarnup with Ian Wise.

It is finally at a point where I am happy with it and the look represents how I was feeling whilst shooting it.

Right after this shot my $200 ND filter blew out of my hand into the stormy waters below, so it was an expensive morning out!

Just before this shot, I was huddled behind the cliff protecting my kit under the umbrella from a torrential downpour, so it was all going on during that morning for sure!

I went down to Kilcarnup for an early morning shoot with Ian Wise on the weekend. When we woke at 0500 it was bucketing down at Eagle Bay, but a quick check on the rain radar showed the band seemed to not quite go down as far as Margaret River, so we decided to go for it.

I spotted this place when we shot the Cape to Cape run by 2 guys a while back and have always wanted to return.

The decision was vindicated as we did get a few keepers, but we ended up getting chased out by quite a big storm front after a hour or so shooting.

We will be back! 🙂
