Sunday morning. I like trying to capture the water movement in the canal. There is always some experimentation necessary to get the right exposure as too long an exposure gives a total “whiteout” as the foam moves through the canal. It depends on the wave conditions breaking into the canal. This shot was taken as the suns rays began to hit the rocks.
I went out on Geographe Marine’s Kerra Lyn yesterday. This lovely “ship” is 20m long, and provides an excellent platform for whale watching. Yesterday was a bit choppy, and cloudy, but the whales more than made up for it. A pod of four were breaching, lunging, tail slapping etc all afternoon. They hung around the Kerra Lyn often coming right up close. This image has the Busselton Jetty in the background.
At Kilcarnup there was an Osprey nest that had been built up over many years. Each year I visited Kilcarnup and could photograph the proud parents with their chicks. You can see images of the Ospreys in earlier posts. After the Margaret River bushfires, the nest was abandoned and I was disappointed that I couldn’t see these magnificent birds at Kilcarnup. I visited the nest a few weeks ago, and it was in a state of disrepair. The day I visited the weather was dreadful and I didn’t bother to look around. However I was told that the Osprey’s were building a new nest, so today I went to see. There were 3 Osprey in the area that I could see. The new nest has a long way to go before it reaches the size of the old one, but it is a good start. The new nest is about 500m from the old ones on Cape Mentelle.
