Missed by ‘that much’!

Perth City Rain Storm St

South Perth Rainbow

I was driving into Perth yesterday evening to see my old man who has been in hospital for a while and I saw a rain storm passing over Perth with some of the most amazing light I have ever seen over Perth. Not to mention the amazing rainbow that was evolving!

Coming down the Freeway and stuck in traffic was very frustrating as I saw the rain storm passing over the narrows. I drove up t Kings Park and literally ran to the vantage point. I managed top ping off a 3 image stitch of South Perth along the way.

I did end up with a half reasonable stitch of Perth City with the rain storm off in the distance that I was chasing, but so annoyed I missed that rainstorm light!

Black Swan Heritage Competition Finalist

Stothard_Mark_1-900

I am very pleased to announce that one of my photos has made the top 25 finalists in the Black Swan Heritage Competition.

The theme is obviously focused on CY O’Connor and the old Barracks in Perth. I took a shot of the CY O’Connor statue out in the water at CY O’Connor beach and then blended him into the barracks as a ghostly overlay.

It seems that the judges liked the concept!

Fingers crossed now to hear about the winner! 🙂

Boat House Sunset

I set out this evening to see if the pending thunderstorm was going to do any thing for me and after starting out at Kings Park in amongst the other half of Perth who were there for a concert, I decided to look for a more peaceful location and ended up at the very secret location of the Boat House! 🙂

2 other photogs had also stumbled across my secret location as well…funny that eh!

Anyway, this is probably the best capture from this evenings outing…enjoy!
