Last week, Wing and I headed out on a photography trip. To be honest, I wasn’t sure I would be up for it, as there was some hiking involved.
We got to the Bunker Bay Resort, and that place was just a beautiful as I remember from years ago. When the concierge was informed of my knee issue, coupled with the fact we were about as far from the reception/parking area as we could be (we had the bungalow near the lake), we had golfcart transport to and from our bungalow.
Thursday. First stop was Sugar Loaf Rock, one of the most photographed rock formations in Western Australia. I looked at the ‘overlook’ area and was started the slow climb up. Yay! Made it!
Everyone takes a photo of the formation with the water and waves all around it durning sunrises or sunsets, and they’re lovely, but I wanted to do something a bit different.
Sunset at Sugar Loaf Rock.
Also had a Nankeen Kestrel keeping watch over our activities.
Friday: Next stop was the Albany Wind Farm. Due to some misinformation, I was told the person I was looking for to return a lens was at the very top of the trail. I managed to go almost to the very top, only to find out the person I was looking for was at the bottom
Also revisited the Canal Rocks, and first time visit to The Reflecting Pool.
Saturday: We went back to the Albany Wind Farm at Dark O’Clock to get some shots of the Milkyway over the wind farm. Then we headed to “The Gap and Natural Bridge” later in the day for some sunshet shots. And also got a great shot of the “Albany Brig” with almost perfectly still water reflecting.
Sunday: We got up again, at O’Dark O’Clock to get some Astrophotography at The Gap and Natural Bridge.
After sunrise, we got some photos of the harbor, the shipping port and other local points of interest.
And then it was time to head home. Took a while to get all the photos culled and processed.
It was a great road trip. Here’s hoping the next one is just as much fun.
