Landscape Photographer from the South West of Western Australia

Advantages of a wet windy wintry Sunday.

Today was wet, cold (by Dunsborough standards), and at times windy. I went out to Pt Picquet to get out of the house and was rewarded by seeing a humpback whale and calf go past only 100m out from the shore. Nice, but no photos – it was raining and they didn’t put much above the surface. Still it was good to see as it is the start of the annual southern migration. Then the sun came out, and I got this double rainbow.

Then I went out on the west coast. I got some dolphin surfing shots, but there are many better on this blog, so I won’t post them. It is always nice to see them though. On my way home I met this guy – he wasn’t at all concerned I was close by. I love the red colour of the rocks – it is caused by a lichen that grows on the rocks.

After that I saw some Southern Right Whales just south of Cape Naturaliste. Too far away to photograph.

All in all a pretty nice wet wintry Sunday.
