Went to Rottnest for the weekend, what an amazing place to photograph. Caught the ferry across after work on Friday, only wished I had caught the early ferry as there was a great sunset on Friday evening which I missed as it was dark as I got to Rottnest. Went there with a bunch of mates for the weekend, for a bit of a getaway. Still managed to get a few shots in while I was over there.
A bike is a must when you go over there, we all hired bikes on Saturday and went around the island. Scoped out some nice location for next time. I think a photo trip over there for a few days would be a go. There lots of locations to shot plus you would get fit from all the riding J . My legs where killing me on Sunday 🙂 from it all. I think about this time in the year is the best time to go to get shots while over there as you pretty much have the whole island to yourself and accommodation was fairly cheap plus the weather isn’t to bad .
This was a shot I took on Saturday evening at sunset. Was having a few drinks on the balcony with my friends when I started to see a bit of colour in the sky. (wasn’t expecting much as there wasn’t much clouds So I grabbed my gear and my bike and went down to the end of Longreach Bay not the easiest thing to do ride a bike with camera gear and a tripod after a couple of beers , but managed to make it in one piece. (I had scoped this location out several times before as my friend has a mooring right there and normally takes his boat over ever summer). I quickly set my tripod up and started taking a few shots before I missed the entire colour, but after a few shots I realised I had my app still set to F3 from taking photo of quokkas during the day . Will have to remember not to rush so much next time lol. I reset my camera settings and took a few more shots before the sun went down.
This was an 9 images stitch , it’s the first one I stitched together so far but I have got a lot more from that afternoon I’m still going through .
In other news I’m off to Sydney this Thursday, looking forward to getting some shots in while over there :). I’ll try and upload one more post before I go 🙂
