Landscape Photographer from the South West of Western Australia

Double rainbow at Pt Picquet

This was taken in June last year.

On an historical note, Picquet was an officer on one of Baudin’s ships (the Geographe and the Naturaliste) which visited this coast around 1801. At the time Baudin described Picquet as “an amiable fellow”. By the end of the voyage the relationship had soured. At one stage Picquet drew his sword on Baudin, and faced court martial on return to France. He was saved by Baudin’s death on the return journey, and the fact that the other officers refused to testify against him.

This image won a bronze award in the 2011 Epson International Photographic Pano Awards.
