Sandpatches

Sandpatches is the bay just north of Sugarloaf Rocks. Dolphins frequent this bay on a regular basis. This afternoon they were enjoying themselves and the light was very good. Here are some examples. (The last shot doesn’t have any dolphins in it in case you were wondering).
While I was taking these shots a very large shark leapt vertically into the air. Its girth was about the girth of a large cow, and it was well in excess of 4m in length – I thought it may have been a small whale breaching initially). unfortunately I didn’t get a photo.

Yallingup lagoon

This version is how I imagined the shot when I first heard that there were night dives going on. I have omitted the above water lights, and zoomed in on the lagoon.

As the girls were coming down the steps to the beach they were chanting something like “Shark bait Shark Bait Ho Ho Ho”.

Light Painting with 60 helpers (if only they knew)

Over the last 3 days 180 students from a Perth girls school have been down in the SW. They were divided into 3 groups of 60, and over the last 3 days each group have had an afternoon snorkel, a BBQ on the foreshore, and a night dive in the lagoon.

This seemed to me to be an excellent opportunity for a light painting project on a grand scale and with a grand subject – the lagoon.
I only caught up with them on their final night, sand was not sure what to expect. This is the result. 50 x 30 second exposures blended.

I was recently in Perth and wandered through the CBD. This caught my eye.
