Not your ordinary common or garden rock pool! This was taken at Redgate Beach, very close to Margaret River in the Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park down in Western Australia’s far south west. The water is crystal clear and is a LOT deeper than it looks. There were actually one or two little fish swimming around and generally having a good time but I wasn’t fast enough to capture them in this shot. Beyond the rocks can be made out the gentle surf of the Indian Ocean – being mid February there wasn’t a lot of movement on the ocean at all.
Just behind, and slightly above, where I was standing to take this shot is a section of the celebrated 100+ kms long cape to cape walking track, stretching from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin at WA’s most south westerly point.
