Dark Shades of Conto

This is another shot from ‘The Night’ down south.   The sun had well and truly set and I found myself just standing in this spot just enjoying listening to the waves crashing against the rock, so I thought I’d capture the moment to remind me of how relaxing the place was.    I can’t believe our run of bad light here in Perth, when we were down south the light just seemed to be awesome the whole time.

Being an absolute plane freak I can’t wait for this Friday so that I can go and watch the Red Bull Air Race from the Mends St Jetty without the crowds.  Its so cool working in the city because over the next few days I’ll be able to hear the planes buzzing around.  Woo Hoo!!!

    Hi Mel,

    Thanks everyone.

    I’m probably not taking my camera you need a focal length of around 400mm to get anything decent unfortunately and my longest lens is 200mm. Having said that I might give my 2x extender one last shot.

    So I will be at the Mends St Jetty around 12:30pm.
