Australia Day at Rottnest Island, on board the good boat Polaris. The sun smiling it’s bright hot rays complimented by a warm easterly wind, and the temperature hovering around 40c degrees. The clear, beautiful and refreshing ocean playing host to some superb surf, swimming, diving and snorkelling. All taking place under the bluest of skies. The skiest of skies. The bluest of blue. We can almost reach out and grab perfection.
Come sunset dramatic clouds and lightning entered, to bookend this particularly beautiful Australia Day. Taking a run at the clouds were Peta North, Flemming and I. All the man-made fireworks in the world is no match for Mother Nature’s sunset and lightning bolts. I make this picture, hoping to do Mother Nature’s lightship justice, freezing a beautiful moment in time.
