It seems winter is dragging on forever. This last storm has some of the strongest winds and biggest swells of the winter. For those unfamiliar with Sugarloaf Rocks, the main rock is at least 25 metres high, probably more.
It was hard to stand still to take the shot – every time a gust of wind hit, you were forced backwards!
Very often sunsets here fizzle out due to a large band of cloud that forms over the horizon. Last night looked promising, so I went down to Wyadup. At the last minute a small band of cloud appeared on the horizon, and this prevented the sunset from developing into a full blown knock your socks off sunset, but it was pretty good.
The shore along this stretch is interesting. Over summer the sand will build up, and this whole area becomes a sandy beach. Most of these rocks are either covered by sand or partly covered. Then during winter the storms wash it all away again and the cycle starts over again.
This pool is just below the waterfalL (you can see the waterfall on the far right). It must be impressive to see this river at the end of the wet season. It was a long hot walk to get to this point and we enjoyed a swim under the waterfall just after this photo was taken.
Lately the weather down here has been absolutely perfect – for everything except photography. Not a cloud in sight anywhere. That was why I went out to Bunker Bay to capture the early sunlight on the cliffs. I couldn’t think of anything better. While I was waiting for the sun to rise I played around with this shot – similar to yesterdays but showing the folding patterns in the rock.
I went out to Bunker Bay this morning to take some photos of the early morning sun on the limestone cliffs and sea caves. While I was waiting for the sun to appear I took this shot. (I am still processing the shot of the cliffs and caves).
These rock formations are just south of Cosy Corner. They offer many good possibilities for photographs. I will probably post some more from here in the future because as I look through my images it was hard to choose which one to post.
Yesterday afternoon there were some reasonable clouds around mid afternoon, and it looked promising for a good sunset. The afternoon was a perfect autumn day, and the sun was lovely. However as the afternoon went on the sun slowly burnt off the clouds, and by 5:00pm there were only a few clouds left in the east. We went down to Meelup to catch them, and they continued to fade. There was some smoke around and the late afternoon sun produced a red glow with the help of the smoke. This is the result.
