Boranup Beach

Hi Everyone,

Well its that time of year and I hope that you and all your families have a fantastic Christmas and a great New Year.  I have a feeling that 2011 is going to be a big one.

This photo was taken at Boranup Beach and I think that out of all the locations we saw on Tuesday this was the most stunning.   I’ve driven along the beach quite a few times and never seen it like this at all.   That channel of water running across the beach was simply the icing on the cake for me.

If you look closely you can see Mark snapping off a couple of shots of this place.

Be safe everyone!

Beach Pajeros Can’t Reach

beach1

Last weekend when I was down south with Kirk and Neal we were driving around and decided to turn down a dirt track.   We drove for about 4 minutes before is started getting a little too rough for their cars, so they transferred all their gear into my car and we continued our trek to nowhere.    It started to get a little rougher and fortunately for us a local stopped to give us some advice about the track getting pretty boggy ahead.   To that person thank you so much!

We kept on driving and got to the boggy section and managed to drive around it using the directions of the local.   After a few more minutes we made it to the beach and were really impressed with what we saw.  I believe we ended up spending around four hours there.    Its a shame the sky was so grey and boring.

On the way home about halfway down the track we came across a Pajero stuck fast in the boggy section and it wasn’t going anywhere.    Kirk and I helped out by trying to dig the car out whilst Neal ensured that one of the members of the Pajero team was safe and sound.   I’m sure she was very appreciative. :-)

Anyway we couldn’t get them out and they were prepared to camp there the night and wait for a proper 4WD in the morning.   So not only did we get some photos but we had an adventure as well.

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!!!

Enjoy!
