A fantastic weekend with some amazing women

This weekend I spent two days  in the South West of Western Australia with some fellow photo enthusiasts.  We’d planned this weekend away as a chance to chase sunrises, sunsets and anything that took our fancy (photographically :)) in between.  And we covered some kilometres!  Thanks to some ‘interesting’ navigation from Shirl, some of those kilometres were off-road.  Good thing we took a 4WD!

We had a fantastic couple of days and had a LOT of laughs (not least at Shirl’s navigation skills and my inability to ‘get’ a particular card game!).  Thank you Shirley, Nicole and Sue-ann, for a weekend I won’t ever forget and that I can’t wait to repeat!


A dawn venture to Point Peron

A very early start this morning as a friend and I ventured to Point Peron, in Rockingham, WA, in the hope of capturing some seascapes with the beautiful dawn light.  WA generally faces the wrong direction for sunrise over the ocean, but the light in the sky still makes for some pretty colours in the water.    Having said that – I tend to convert landscapes to black and white!  I just felt these craggy rocks would look good in monotone.  What do you think?

An early morning wander

On Saturday a photo buddy and I went to Bibra Lake with our cameras and tripods, all ready for dawn.  What a beautiful spot Bibra Lake is.  The 6km loop may have been easier without all our gear in tow, but let’s call it resistance exercise!   The bonus was a couple of photos I like…
