I am doing a refit on a mates 50ft Pleasure boat at the moment and we will be doing a galley refurb in amongst that refit.
That prompted me to think outside the box for a splashback and have come up with this at 1800 wide and 450 high. It will be printed in high gloss on aluminium by Fitzgeralds and I think the over all concept will work very well!
Apparently the high gloss printing treatment is scratch resistant and heat resistant, so it will work very well for a splash back.
Some more images taken on my wonderful flight with Birds Eye View Mircolights in Exmouth.
I was working on a project last night when I found this little gem lurking in my Cendrawasih Bay shots from last year’s adventure on True North.
I thought it was worth posting!
Here are a few more aerials from my Exmouth flights with Birds Eye View Microlights and also from the burner on the way home.
The one with the boat in it is actually of my old charter boat called Skybird! It was very cool flying over the top and thinking..I know that boat and sure enough on a lower pass it was Skybird alright!
We had many a memorable moment on that boat around the place!
A few more images from my recent trip to Exmouth.
I was pretty spoilt with the conditions up there I must say. From the crystal clear haze less skies to the constant mackerel clouds, I think I had it pretty good.
Add the above to some pretty cool vistas and guess what…it kinda works!
After the early morning high shoot, I ventured further down into the canyon to see what I could find. The skies were a classic Mackerel Sky, which was offering beautiful spot lights and background soft light all over the scene.
When nature turns it on, she knows how to do it and from there it is just F8 and be there!
After my Microlight Flight yesterday, I managed to scope this location in one of the Canyon’s in Exmouth.
Up at 0500 this morning and then a big trek up the hill in front of this image. My legs are still screaming a bit from that sorty!
The morning was pretty EPIC with the Mackeral Skies overhead and beautiful early morning light kissing the tops of the hills and channels in the ranges.
I was actually even more beautiful that I imagined after looking at it from the air, so a great way to start the day and plenty more where this one came from!
I have been in Exmouth over the last few days and today I found some time to sneak in a couple of flights in a Mircolight with Birds Eye View Microlights.
My pilot was a young guy called Gav who started the business about 9 years ago. He is barely 30 years old and has been flying Mircolights for 15 years. In fact he tells a story that he was flying as early as 12 with his father!
Microlights have been in his family for many years now and his brothers also fly.
For sure a flight in one of these very cool machines is the way to see the Exmouth Gulf and Coral Bay. You get an excellent perspective with panoramic views and Gav is keen to help you get the best possible photos.
Above are some initial images of the day, but there are plenty more where they came from!
I shot this a couple of days ago and have only just had the time to process.
There are a number of elements in this shot that works for me and hope it does for you as well!
I set out tonight as it looked like the conditions could have been all time, but as with all good plans, I was beaten by clouds on the horizon.
The pre sunset colours came through though and I am quite pleased with this result.
