This one is infinitely better if viewed large.
I took myself out for a short drive this afternoon – wanted to try the views from a new lookout with my new camera. This is Yanchep Lagoon, on the Indian Ocean some 50 kms from Perth and to get this shot I was standing in the lookout about a kilometre away. Was using a 16-80 Zeiss lens on almost full zoom and then cropped it a little in CS3. Camera was my new Sony A77 and I was on full 24mps setting jpeg (forgot all about RAW!) As you can see it was a clear blue sky and the time would have been about 2.30pm

    Lovely picture, Peter. The blue of that sea is just incredible!

  • Thanks David. Blue skies are all we seem to be getting at the moment, although we are being forecast STORMS on Monday and Tuesday. But we are getting about these storms because they never seem to materialise at this time of year.

  • Good evening Elaine. Very many thanks – I was only out for about half an hour this afternoon – just needed a breath of air!

    Never mind five minutes from home any chance I could rent that place, I could spent the rest of my life there such a beautiful place.
    Great capture but my dear friend your showing what I’m missing out on sat in a bedroom on my new computer looking at the places you have been just wonderful, please keep them coming I love them all.

    Regards mt friend. and a Fave

  • Thanks very much Mike. It’s amazing how easy it is to become so accustomed to seeing a place you tend not to bother unduly about it but I was showing this photo to one or two of the staff here yesterday and they never knew it was all so close! And here was me taking it all for granted!!
    All the best old mate

    Looks a wonderful place to live Peter and it certainly will be warm…..! Great image. You said I had image signature style bird pics, well your lovely beaches are definitely ’ Peter ’ as soon as I see them ! We’ll have to rename you ’ The wise old beach boy.’

  • Forget the “old” – just “The wise beach boy” will do nicely thank you – otherwise you are in danger of becoming “The wise old owl!” LOL Very many thanks Roy. I’m starting to get out and about a bit more now but walking too far at any one time is still not possible so I have to pick places that are fairly close to a parking spot.

    Awesome! Bright and BEAUTIFUL. So glad you are still able to get out and about Peter. Amazing beach and ocean view.

  • What a joy to see my old mate again! It’s so good that you should pop in and I appreciate your comments very much.. I’m now living in an aged care facility where I am spoilt rotten and can come and go as I please. Have my own room with TV and broadband connection and am gradually getting my life together again after losing my beloved Betty just over 3 months ago. I talk to her every day and somehow that seems to lessen the pain.
    All the best old friend

    Almost like my place, but then a bit differently…lol…..lovely scene, Peter

  • Hi Els – good to see you as always. Very many thanks for the visit and kind words. This is the first time I have visited this spot since my mobility became somewhat impaired but in times past have been here scores of times! Not so easy now, but at least I did it!!!
    Take care
