Rottnest Perfection

I have been going to Rottnest Island now for over 35 years and I can tell you that this weekend just gone is as good as it gets over there!

The weather was in the high 30’s the clarity in the water was as good as it gets and the sea breezes both days was extremely mild.

Throw in a few crays and a couple of great swims…a couple of awesome dives where we saw a 7ft Wobby Gone, a huge GT, a Lion fish, 3 Dhufish, a turtle, an eagle ray, 2 large sting rays and some King George and we are talking world class…absolute world class weekend at Rotto!

  1. Ahhh now that’s a summer shot, beautiful.

    Your list of fish had me singing “and a partridge in pear tree” , must be the season. πŸ™‚

    PS. Can you get me one of those Kong George Whiting πŸ™‚

  2. Indeed it is perfect. Great clouds.

    • Gidday Dave!

      Ta mate…I have a great birdie shot that I need your knowledge to identify.

      Will post it soon.



  3. Love the clouds. How can anyone beat Rotto?

  4. That looks more like the Islands of the Mediterranean. Swish!!!

  5. A huge GT…where, where, I demand you tell me!

  6. I have only been once there on a day tour, would love to go again. Stunning paradise!

  7. Hey mark, hows the clarity of the water. Despite the swell being down I have been out every day surfing or snorkeling and its been superb. If your going again and keen for a fish through me a line, Im on holidays for 8 weeks πŸ™‚ otherwise I will see you over there in Australia Day 2010 !

  8. bastard!!!!! great pic, composition and colour, might be able to take a bit of black out of the water with selective colour.

  9. great shot Mark.

    and yeah i agree, i love Rotto too.

    • Not if you have your own boat mate! You can live pretty well over there without having to spend much eh!
