We have had a lot of rain in the Southwest over the last week, and particularly over the last 24 hours. I went out to Meelup this morning and shot these two images.
(PS For those not familiar with Meelup there is no such thing as Meelup Falls- the waterfall only appeared after exceptionally heavy rain)!
Its been a while since I posted anything – been very busy moving house, and a consulting job has kept me busy. This is taken from just South of Cape Naturaliste. The sun broke out briefly for this photograph.
If you are wondering why I am posting images from winter, the reason is that the weather here lately has been perfect, max 28, min 18, blue skies, and no clouds. Terrible for photography – not a decent sunrise or sunset anywhere!
This image is of the beach at Cosy Corner (down towards Cape Leeuwin). The green is a weed that grows on the reef over winter, and it can be a real lime green colour. As summer approaches the sun bleaches the weed, and it turns white. Later in the summer this gets covered by sand. However when the weed is visible (green or white) it contrasts beautifully with the colours of the sand, and ocean.
I am enjoying looking back through my older images. I am discovering images I had forgotten about. This was captured August 2009. The Cape to Cape track seems to be at its best in winter – at least for a photographer. The streams are flowing, and there are usually clouds in the sky.
Update – I reprocessed this image from the raw file as Mark suggested (see comments). This is the updated version.
