Parker Point Rottnest Island

If you ask Flemming Bo Jensen about yesterday he would have said it would have been hard to beat the afternoon of swimming with the seals, but today Rottnest turned it on again.

With a strong North East wind blowing this morning, we left the North side of the island for picturesque Parker Point on the Southern side of the island. I shot off for a quick surf at Stricklands and then after lunch we loaded up the underwater housing, kindly loaned by my buddy Glenn Murray, and set off for the coral gardens at Parker Point.

The top image is of a wave breaking over me, which I simply called……’Duck’!

The other is a simple image featuring some colourful seaweed against a mirror calm surface.

The day at Parker Point was picture perfect and the bay was totally loaded with heaps of boats and people enjoying the tranquility of the bay.

A beautiful way to finish the weekend.

    You boys are having way to much fun

    • You are a long time dead Ric! And yes, I also like UW photography Paul, but have never had any decent kit to do it with…my intention is to rectify that situation shortly!

      • Yeah I want to get a housing for my 5D, Andrew Semark and I were playing around with his 7D over the weekend and got some unique shots of the Busselton Jetty.. had a great time πŸ™‚

  2. Nice work mate.. love underwater photography πŸ™‚

  3. Yes its a whole new world down there and a heap of challenges as well eh!

  4. Another amazing day at Rottnest. On weekends like this, it is the best place in the world.

    I really like the wave image. Reminds me of the scene in The Big Blue where Jaques Mayol is dreaming about the ocean coming into his bedroom from the ceiling. Rather surreal and awesome.

  5. Shhh Flembot…if you let everyone know how good it is everyone will want to be there! πŸ™‚

  6. Sounds like an amazing experience. Great underwater shots by the way. I think the one on the right could also be interesting when turned upside down, as it would almost look like a tree growing by a lake.

  7. Thanks Armand! Interesting concept for sure!
