Train Yard

No real explanation for this one. I was walking back to the car, took a photo and kept walking. I think it had even started to rain but I’m not sure because I took this one last year.

Perth Cityscape

The sky over the lake was looking pretty cool the other day so I jumped in the car and raced around to the other side. I had never noticed the city from here before and I didn’t realise how visible it was. This was shot freehand (no tripod) after I just ran a lap of the lake so I’m surprised how steady my hand was.

Bennion Beach Sunset

Holly and I headed down to the beach for a great sunset. Bennion beach seems to be the only location near our place with a few rocks for foreground interest. These images are of the same place but about 40 minutes apart.

Sugarloaf Revisited

So I found this shot of Sugarloaf Rock amongst the batch I took a few weeks ago. The rocks seem so well lit that I thought I should post this one. At the risk of overdose on Sugarloaf I hope you still like it.

Middle Earth – Karratha

This part of the Burrup Peninsula always seems unnatural because the rocks are so broken up and so regimented – they look man made. This shot even feels a bit like it’s from a scene in The Lord of The Rings. It’s entirely natural though and the area is covered in ancient rock art.

Boots in a Tree

I’ve always like these boots hanging in this tree. They are on a mountain bike track that people ride along on the way home from work. This seems to be a tradition when people quit to throw their boots on power lines or a tree or whatever is on the way out the gate. This was shot in the middle of the day hence the less than flattering light. I still like it though.

Lake Munga

Lake Munga is just around the corner from my house. It’s generally a pretty boring looking lake. For some reason the clouds above it don’t light up very well. But the trees around the south side look pretty cool. Two things to look out for in this shot are the gazebo on the far side of the lake, and the cockatoo in the tree. I thought I would start noting what camera settings I use in each shot.
