Landscape Photographer from the South West of Western Australia

Salmon season

The salmon are here. This morning about five schools went past while I was photographing dolphins. They seemed to hide close to the surf zone so the dolphins can’t find them, and then when they think its safe they make a move along the beach.

For those who are not familiar with the Australian salmon, these are not the pink flesh salmon such as the Tasmanian salmon or the northern hemisphere salmon. They are about 80 cm long, weigh 4-5 kgs and every year they migrate from somehere near Ceduna in South Australia to the South west coast here in Western Australia. They are a lot of fun to catch.
