The Gem team split after Karijini, going separate ways we headed up to Onslow for a night t catch up with a friend and to get the Onslow jetty at sunset, we were not dissapointed, Onslow jetty was loading salt onto a bulk carrier and so the lights were on, this is the subsequent shot.

We just went up to see a glass splash back using one of my images, an 8 pic stitch from Glen Helen , west of Alice in the NT, taken last July on our way home after the Canning Stock route drive,

it was awesome to see the image printed 4 meters by 1200 mm laminated behind glass, it looks so  great I want to show off.

Pemberton with the WAPF

•February 20, 2012 • 1 Comment

We spent an enjoyable weekend hosted by the Pemberton Camera Club on a WAPF weekend. The fires in the area restricted where we could go so the planned trip to Black Point was off limits, however we with a convoy of 15 4WD’s headed out to a really nice beach North West of Windy Harbour,  then on Sunday to Salmon Beach and Windy Harbour for Brunch, getting some interesting shots in the forest with a smoky haze.

Woke up this morning with news that last night Northcliffe was evacuated and windy harbour was under threat. It is a lovely spot so I hope they are going to be OK, the forecast is not good with hot easterly winds pushing the fire towards them. the fires have been burning for a couple of weeks following lightning strikes in the area.
