Default down the south west

these are still from the holiday i had in September with a couple of guest from the USA ( i am being really slow )

some dolphins, not a great photo but i dont see dolphins everyday and this is as close as they got


Sugar loaf rock, it is more photogenic in winter with stormy skies and rough seas


one of the surf beaches near Yallingup on a calm day


Canal rocks


a distant view of canal rocks (supposedly a good spot for fishing)

*sighs* ..... and that's what summer looks like.

I particularly like #4 (the power of the sea and you can see the size of the swell too) whilst #5 would make any postcard list. Just gorgeous.

Nice compositions John! Nice to see the turquoise waters and foliage--a nice contrast to the snow we are experiencing right now in Kentucky! I like the last one in particular in how it leads the eye through the curve in the beach out to the rocky point.

Beautiful sights and pictures John,

I don't call you real slow, I'm still busy with the vacation shots of 2009, I guess 2010 will be faster ready.

Lovely shots! It's so much fun to be on this forum - one minute I'm looking at cold, snowy pictures and the next summer (or I guess spring in this case) and warm weather. What great variety. That's one pretty picture, I love the last one also.

Hey, John.
All of them are so beautiful, wish I was there!
#2 gives the impression that your looking out at a great distance and can see the curvature of the earth on the horizon. pretty cool.

Thanks for all the comments
FF Mtngal is right this was early spring - 16 September - it was a bit chilly though
the curvature is due to the fisheye lens, i really do like using it for scenery
you can get the horizon straight if it goes through the centre of the lens like in pic 3
i am glad you like them and thanks again
