Smoke Haze Sunrise Over Perth - November 26 2011

These Photos were taken on Sunday November 26 2011.

Perth awoke to a smoky morning which was the result overnight winds pushing smoke from bushfires in the Margaret River region which have been burning over the last week.

There was a strong smell of smoke and a thick haze which resulted in a spectacular sunrise with some great colours just before sunrise, and a pink sun as it poked though the haze, and as it rised higher the sun turned orange and yellow Here are some of the photos:

The Suburban Bird Plague

While the East coast of Australia has just seen some of the wettest weather on record in 2010, over here in Western Australia we recorded our second driest year on record. As a result we have been seeing allot more wildlife moving to feed in towns and in the metropolitan area. I’ve personally have seen many birds in my suburb that I usually only see up in the Perth hills, and in rural areas.

This year, we’ve seen a large invasion of Little Corella’s that have been feeding off nuts and berries and anything else they can find in our neighbourhood.

Today I managed to get a few photos of some of the Little Corella’s that had come to feed on the nuts in the bushes at the front of my house, unfortunately it’s been overcast here in Perth today, so the light wasnR…

Perth Australia Day Skyworks 2010

I wanted to try something different this year, so I revisited one of the freeway overpasses that I had previously visited on another photo shoot.

My original plan was to shoot alongside the river, but the tide had come in late in the afternoon, and there wasn’t anywhere good to stand since the water level had covered the beach and it was hard to get a clear shot of the city skyline so I decided to shoot from the overpass to take advantage of the traffic travelling along the freeway resulting in a combination of the fireworks and traffic trails.

I can’t believe the amount of stupidity I witnessed last night. I was taking photos from a freeway overpass over the Kwinana freeway and before the fireworks started, 4 men ran across the freeway (And crossing the train lines) and then back a…

True Blue Aussie Story

Lets all get on the blower and chuck a sicky on Tuesday and get really pissed on Mundee. It would be great, But the boss would most likely chuck a wobbly and go Berko on Wednesday and might even give you the sack. Then when your Missus finds out you will proberly have a blue and you’ll be getting a good Earbashing, Then the better half will go walkabout, She’ll be off like a bag of prawns in the hot sun, Just out of the blue she will pack up and blow through. But don’t worry she’ll be back after Brekky since she’s got no Brass, But you’ve got Buckley’s chance of getting a shag, But thats not a issue since she a bush pig and a bit of a dingbat and she’s noisy as a Dunny door in a storm. But you married her because your no catch, And a bit of …
