Not a bad day at all down here today. After that cracker of a sunrise, I captured this young fellow having an early morning fish and then we went off to Bunkers Bay for breaky followed by a leisurely swim at Meelup…sensational!

A little after the last post with a beautiful start to the morning. This guy thought he was teh pied piper I think as he had a pod of dolphins following him for quite a while.

Riviera Variety Splash

•March 5, 2011 • 27 Comments

The reason why you haven’t heard from me for a while is I am on a mates 47′ Riviera and we have cruised down South to Quindalup with the RIviera Variety Splash, which is a fund raiser for Variety which supports families with kids in need.

We have had a wonderful cruise so far with Northerlies up our butt on the way down and a dead flat sunrise this morning that produced this special start to the day for me.

Getting to the shore was a bit of a challenge, with my camera and a few lenses in a waterproof bag and then paddling into the beach on a stand up board!

Stay tuned for more Variety Bash shots!

Well, what a day!

The man himself, Christian Fletcher announced his retirement from his blog and I must say that I am not surprised by the announcement.

The blog has grown to a point where it is taking him away from the main focus points in his life and his balance in life need to be readjusted.

I feel sure that as a blogging community that we can still interact with each other as we have been doing and that we can arrange some outings where Christian will come along as a guest or something.

I have attached an image that I took a couple of weekends ago at Longreach Bay at Rottnest Island, whilst there the Flemming Bo Jensen.

I am not sure on this one…but it does have some appeal to me…what to the punters think!

Perth City Thunderstorms

•March 1, 2011 • 16 Comments

Flemming Bo Jensen and I skipped out last night to try a bit of storm chasing and totally failed the mission!

We opted to go down near the power house…nothing, then off to lake Belliar….we got some cloud but the background was cluttered with Cement works etc, so we packed up and went home discussing the philosophies of life!

On my return I saw the Thunderstorm developing over Perth and  pinged this off from my balcony!

Sometimes you just need to stay put and smell the roses eh!

I am still yet to get a decent lightning shot and it is certainly on my ‘to do list’!
