After seeing some images from True North Mark I was inspired to get up a couple of hours before dawn this morning and make a run down to Cottesloe beach to checkout this years Sculptures by the sea exhibit. I was lucky to have the place to myself apart from a couple of guys with metal detectors for about half an hour before the hoards of beach goers rolled in. The light wasn’t great so black and white shot’s were what I tried to create and these are a few of them.
After a stinking hot day last Sunday in down town Northam and an air conditioner not playing the game and tossing in the sponge I decided it was time to get out of the house and head for cooler surroundings. This is where we ended up and what difference in temprature it was, about 10 degrees cooler and just plain pleasant. While we sat on our rusty old camp chairs savouring some tasty kebabs for tea I wandered over about ten steps and snapped a couple of pic’s of the view that was before us and this is the result.
My visit to see the rocks was a bit disappointing at first as I thought they would be above the water surface but they were about half a metre under, I used my 10 stop filter to smooth out the water and make the rocks stand out a bit more and create a bit of calm. Lake Clifton is one of only a few places these thrombolites grow.
Was at Lake Clifton south of Dawesville last evening checking out the amazing thrombolites and hoping for a photo opportunity with the promising sunset coming along. Managed to get quite a few keepers but this one was the only portrait framed shot and is probably my instant fave. Must be clicked on and viewed large.
