Pinnacles and Cervantes Road Trip

Posted by on Jul 2, 2014 in Blog | No Comments

There are two landscape images I’ve vowed never to take in WA – one is the boat-shed over the river in Crawley the other is the Pinnacles. I caved in on the Pinnacles. Fortunately the day we were there was heavily overcast, with some patches of lighter cloud so there was an interesting eerie light over the site. I was keen not to come home with captures of those golden pillars under a striking blue sky – the world really doesn’t need any more of those.
It was my first visit there and it made a great over-nighter from Perth. We stayed in Cervantes before heading back the next day, stopping in at some places we bypassed the day before.
Looking forward to getting out that way again soon. More Pinnacles photos under landscape images. (I’m standing firm on the Crawley Boat shed pledge though).

Young kookaburra, Margaret River trip

This cutie came to say goodbye as we were packing up to leave our chalet in Margaret River. The young kookaburra was patient enough to wait while I leapt inside, grabbed my camera, changed lenses, then tripped around the porch trying to look inconspicuous.
