Landscape Photographer from the South West of Western Australia

Recent sightings

On Saturday I went to Sandpatches and the dolphins were playing.

Last night a storm moved in. We often see whales being active during a storm with lots of breaching. I suspect that in a storm the ocean is so noisy that breaching is the only means of communication that can be heard. These two whales breached fairly close to shore.

The rough weather brings in albatrosses, shearwaters, and similar birds. The dark birds are probably shearwaters and the white bodied birds are Indian Yellow Nosed albatrosses.  They were all a long way out and the strong winds (> 40 knots) made for difficult conditions to photograph the sea birds!
