Photobombed!



 Although young by European standards the Narrows Bridge when it opened in 1959 was the largest pre-cast, pre-stressed concrete bridge in the world according to Wikipedia and is WA Heritage listed. It is easy to be impressed when standing under the bridge by the volume of concrete held up by the triangular shaped columns. As I was taking a few shots, attracted by the reflections in the water and arrow straight lines of sun shining through from above.. a flock of pelicans sailed nonchalantly through...


...on their way to the city :) Happy weekend, take care and stay safe.

  11. Great photos Grace! That was pretty cool that the pelicans paddled through your shot. That they paddled right through the sunlit strip is awesome.

  12. Seeing the bridge from this point of view it is impressive. And what a nice gesture from the pelicans to arrive at just the right moment :)

  16. Great pics, Grace! And hehe, the pelicans sure steal the show. I like to see them at a distance but find it not so funny when such a huge fella comes up to me as happened in Monkey Mia!

  25. Those pelicans were definitely racing, the first over the second yellow line has won :)

  26. The First and Second are my favorite.
    The Pelicans ???

  27. The problem with this whole project is that there's so much planning underway for the carbon storage unit before the local community has had the time to protest or accept the changes in their area. Let's hope that the facility solution will be discussed and explained clearly so all will be clear what will happen when they decide ho to react to this new addition to the area.
