Walk around Point Peron

Theres been plenty of photos on this blog of Point Peron, but it’s such a nice place to wander around and has some lovely bays and views down the coast and over Rockingham, that it never gets old.

Anja and I got up early – 7:30am – to beat the heat and go on a photo walk.

Trip to Penguin Island

We’re pretty lucky here in the Southern Hemisphere.  Perth is far away from the world and very beautiful.

The downside is that we have all kinds of wildlife that is out to get us here,  but we also have tiny fairy penguins.  And they live on Penguin Island, only a few hundred metres off the coast near Rockingham, conveniently, only a short drive from my place. Read More

Ticket to crashville – admit one.

2 weeks ago I was out on the bike, minding my own business, having a great day in the hills, as one does.

Wheatbelt driving

A few weeks after my trip to York, I had the opportunity to drive to Kulin – deep in the Western Australian Wheatbelt.

If you’re not familiar with the state of Western Australia – outside of Perth metro area, aside from a few regional towns, there’s basically not very much.  I don’t mean that in any way disrespectfully – WA has 2.2 million people and something like 1.9 million of those live in the Perth area.

So when you drive out into the country, things get really empty really fast Read More

A trip to the wheatbelt – Canola fields

Springtime in the wheatbelt means yellow canola fields as far as the eye can see.

Well, not quite, but it does seem a bit like it from some vantage points.  it was a lovely day, I had some time so I jumped in the car and headed out to York, which is a couple of hours drive from me to see if I could find some photogenic fields.

Experiments with motion

Timing is everything.

Usually, work and my commute dictate my timetable and I don’t get an opportunity to get to the beach with the camera, but weekends are a different story.

And as luck would have it today, timing lined up perfectly and I got down to the beach with the versatile little X100T to take some abstract sunset pictures.   Read More
