Fremantle - Sacred Grove, Roundhouse, Arc d'ellipses - WTWW

As I was shooting the iconic Carousel, a man approached, and told me about an art installation in the High Street, consisting of apparently disconnected yellow paint lines which, when viewed from the Roundhouse, produced a fascinating effect.

Naturally intrigued, I proceeded up to the former gaol, and was delighted with the sight ahead of me, a series of circles stretching right down the street. Or were they right in front of me..? This amazing illusion was the work of Felice Varini, 'Arcs D'Ellipses', and was part of the Fremantle Festival. Simply put, I loved it :-)

as suggested by Katie Ruddin

I was tasked with photographing 'Sacred Grove' in Fremantle by a young couple who had recently been married in the location, and it was astonishing to think that in countless visits to the area, I was utterly unaware of the existence of such a magical spot. This was my favourite, which I've named 'Simply Sacred' - now available in the Fremantle collection.

Swan River & Crawley Boat Shed

After almost 6 years, I've finally photographed the famous Blue Shed - whenever I've attempted to go there in the past I've been unable to find parking closeby, so this time I took no chances, parking almost a kilometre away to make sure I had my opportunity, which, after one particular couple took selfies in literally every imaginable pose, finally came.

In fairness, it was a beautiful day, so it really wasn't a hardship to wander along the footpath (albeit dodging cyclists travelling past me without warning at alarming speeds) watching the waterbirds and generally enjoying the outing.

Although I suspect poor Eliza has possibly seen a little too much of them, judging from this.

Busselton, Margaret River and Augusta - Out and About

For our Wedding Anniversary this weekend, James and I took an extended break in Busselton, allowing us great access to the beautiful Margaret River region, and further afield to Augusta and Cape Leeuwin.

It was a joy to show him the sights I'd seen earlier such as Skippy Rock and the Waterwheel, but more so to explore new locations such as Ellen's Brook and Meekadarabee Falls, with the added bonus of a delicious lunch at the White Elephant Beach Cafe in Gnaragup.

Now there's just the small matter of sorting through the images...

As recommended by Ash McPhail

Although the weather forecast was absolutely dire, I kept to the WTWW promise, and headed out to Ellis Brook Valley Reserve, hoping to catch some shots of Sixty Foot Falls. I managed to make it up to the Eagle View Trail, and was blessed with some great views over the wilderness back to Perth city before the rain hit hard. Unfortunately as there was an unsavoury looking gent hanging about in the carpark near the falls I bottled out of that part of the trip and headed off.

So I arrived in Mundy Regional Park, site of the incredible Lesmurdie Falls, and, on that day, the extremely well named Cascades. This visit was definitely worth the drenching!
