Dashing dolphins!



Although I have a phobic fear of deep water one of my most favourite things to photograph are boats and the delicious reflections they create in the water...  the vibrantly coloured vessels of Golden Sun Cruises moored at Pier 4 Barrack St. Jetty waiting to take you to Fremantle, Rottnest Island or upriver to the Swan Valley...


Or you could head over to Pier 3 and 'sling your hook' with Captain Cook arrrrrr! Well we're six days into winter here in Perth.. the skies have been blue and yesterday it was 23C.. could you cope with that :) Bon weekend, take care and stay safe...
See more weekend reflections here...

  3. If it was 23˚C here in December we would all be over the moon - except for the skiers I guess!

  4. What a wonderful place to paint some dolphins - watching them surf around the bow of a boat is one of life's greatest pleasures. TY for sharing!
    [I hope your fear of deep water does not stop you from enjoying some time ON the water...]

  16. Those watery reflections could pass so easily as a dynamic, surreal painting. Such vibrant colours. And I always love the see boat styles.

  18. Love these reflections Grace - now please go and find a lovely sail boat reflection to photograph for 'moi'!
    I never sail, but I love sail boats!

  19. Beautifully clean and clear images, especially that first one. My father always came back from holiday with a camera full of boat pictures - and he had a fear of any water that was deeper than his bath.

  33. There's something very playful in that first shot...I suppose it's the bright cheery orange boat with the dolphin...but it's so much more than just that!!!

  41. Great photos Grace! The bright colors really exploded in the reflection.
