Default Castle rock

a small beach near the west end of Geographe bay, it starts out as sand with a few rocks, but the further you walk the more and more rocks there are
there is still some sand here


Castle rock in the distance

looking back to where we had come from


a Pimela flower with Castle rock behind


we took the easy way back and looked for wild flowers
a Spider orchid


a Donkey orchid


climbing over the rocks was hard work, but we all had fun
a recommended exploration for any one that goes down that way

Hi John,

A terrific series! All with the DA 10-17 FE? I'm guessing, but if so, you did a nice job of minimizing the distortion and giving some of the shots the unique perspective that this lens allows.

I like the donkey orchids -- didn't take long to see how they got the name. . .

Scott

thanks Scott
i forgot to mention it was the 10-17 fisheye
i do like it for landscapes, especially where you dont notice the distortion
and if you get the horizon in the centre it is straight (crooked maybe but straight at least lol)
i like the depth of field it can get and how close it will focus (plus i wasnt changing lens while climbing over the rocks
