Blackwall Reach near Fremantle would have to be one of my more favourite spots on the Swan River. Despite all the boat traffic going by its actually a very peaceful place to be. Its also a pretty cool spot to go diving as there are stacks of boats sitting on the bottom here, bikes are down there and I’ve even found the remains of an old truck down here.
If you’re into prawn diving this is one of the best spots in the Swan River to get them. Normally they are between 9M and 14M of water and on a good night you could easily bring in a kilo of prawns. Perhaps one of the best things about this area is that its full of seahorses just below the surface. I could almost guarantee that if you went for a snorkel or dive around here you would find at least one seahorse.
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I certainly did.

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend. Have I jumped on the black and white bandwagon with this shot? Certainly not! I see things in colour and in the past have converted the odd photo to black and white when the composition and light was good but the colour wasn’t.
In this case though I always saw this Cottesloe Beach shot in black and white for some reason, perhaps its because of Brett Morgan’s latest photos. Either way I’m glad I saw this one in black and white as it really works. Now should I rock Mark’s boat and do a third post for the day? I think so.
We had an amazing sunset here last night, I hope you guys all managed to get out there and get some photos. I managed to grab this shot before ducking around and shooting Point Walter as the sun was setting. I promised myself no wave shots this weekend and at first I did end up down at North Cottesloe but I snapped out of it and headed back around to the Swan River. I’m really glad I did the light was just amazing and everything came together just right. Did anyone else manage to get out there and get some awesome shots?

Hope you all enjoy,
Shooting from air can be quite addictive. Its a point of view many of us don’t get to see on a day to day basis, to look down and see the world ticking along doing its thing while you’re free in the air is a very cool feeling. On my way out to Rottnest I got the pilot to transit over Fremantle Harbour so that I could grab some shots of the ships in the harbour. I was actually really surprised to see a rowing boat in the harbour next to the ship when I viewed this photo at 100%. Talk about brave!
If you’ve never shot from the air do yourself a favour and charter a helicopter and do some shooting! Its heaps of fun.
I srpung out of bed at 7:30am (instead of 5am like I was supposed to!) and decided to head down to the beach to have a dip and grab a few wave photos. I’m so glad I did, it was beautiful. Melissa and Xavier chilled out in the sand whilst I got some pretty cool shots as the waves were breaking onto the beach. Its a shame that winter is fast approaching, there is nothing like waking up in the morning and heading off down to the beach. Hope you guys are all enjoying the weekend so far.
Thanks for stopping by and checking my blog out,
Well this is my first attempt at something a little different so hopefully you’ll be kind to me. I’ve been memorised by wave photographs for years and I’ve finally taken the step and gone out and got myself an underwater housing. I’ve been out twice this week and its so much fun, though I must admit I’ve been thrown around heaps in the surf and ended up with lots of scrapes from the sand.
Its just so refreshing to dive into the water and have a play around for an hour or so and then hop out and watch the sunset before heading home. Clint Baker is also having a crack at this sort of photography as well so head over to his site to check his stuff out.
So will anyone else be joining Clint and I in the water?
I hope everyone is having a great and safe weekend!!!
Well it looks like everyone here is writing about Summer and how much they miss it and how close it now is, so I’d thought I’d post another photo of Cottesloe Beach. This is another shot taken in summer, again it was a really warm night and after taking this shot I put my stuff into the car and then jumped into the water myself. Its so relaxing being in the water late evening or night time, one of my favourite times to dive is at night. Anyhow back to the main story, hurry up Summer and bring on some wicked sunsets.
Thanks for viewing and comments are appreciated!!!
