Perth Water..



The Perth Water walk between the Causeway along under the Narrows Bridge and on to the Mends Street Jetty where the ferries go back and forth to the Elizabeth Quay Jetty city-side is roughly a 2km walk, a really enjoyable walk it is. Must be nice catching the ferry to work instead of the bus or train, especially if the dolphins in the river swim along for the trip 🐬


The shot below of the Mends Street Jetty is the only one where I changed from the 12-200mm lens to the fish-eye, don't look too closely.. if you don't hold the camera perfectly still while using the fish-eye lens it's all over as far as sharp is concerned, for me anyway.. I wanted to show you the end of the walk, why I changed lens I really don't know :)


The two male Australasian Darters were sunning themselves on the rocks as we walked along, they do have rather dashing plumage don't you think :) I found another very much larger Australian animal when we reached the jetty, not sure if it's welcome there or not, show you soon. Have a good weekend, take care and stay safe..

  1. I love a walk with a view and this one certainly has that and more. I love that darter's plumage. He's a beauty. I can't wait to see what creature was awaiting you at the jetty.

  5. Looks like the perfect place for floating a small boat, raft, canoe, or kayak.

  11. Those darters are very dashing. Great views, too.
    (I really enjoy our ferries which take us to regional metro areas.)

  15. The Darters are spectacular, you got some good shots of them. Dashing is a great descriptive word, I wish I was dashing.
