Drama At The Basin

Same place different point of view.   The Basin at Rottnest Island has just so many angles that you can take photos from, I’m sure I could spend another few days hitting this spot without getting bored.   My main focus in this photo wasn’t surprisingly the clouds, they were a great bonus.   The real attraction for me in this photo was the little sandy channel running through the reef and out into the basin itself.  It actually struck me that in all my years of going to Rottnest I’ve never been swimming here.  Weird!

This has been created by using two vertical photos stitched together using my 16-35mm lens.   As always I hope you guys enjoy it.

Thanks,

The Basin

I’ve been lucky enough to have spent the past four days at Rottnest and its been pure bliss.  Sure we had a few fronts come through with lots of rain, but they never lasted long and we pretty much had the island to ourselves.   I was staying at the Bathurst villas at Rottnest so it was a short little walk to the Basin for me via Pinky Beach.

On this particular night there was a stack of rain heading my way, it was heading towards the island really slowly so I thought let’s get the camera out and see what happens.   As it happens it was a good call and the result was pretty awesome.  I managed to grab this shot on the first night and have had to wait for four days to be able to process it.   Talk about testing ones patience!

I hope you guys enjoy it,
