Mindarie Keys

A few weeks back we experienced a late season summer storm come in from the north. Watching the clouds all afternoon and feeling the humidity something was going to happen. So I ventured up Mindarie Keys just north or Perth, Western Australia. Any further south and the effect of the thunderstorm would of been a lot less. I would of liked to be further up, but really there is nothing on the coast up there to shoot. So mindarie it was.

Heres the pic, a bout 2 mins later it turned grey to black very fast and came down buckets …. I love tropical weather. Hot and wet 😉

    Great colours Neal, I think you have made the most of the composition here it looks great. This storm just about anywhere would transform an image. Great timing.

    that’s some brilliant light – amazing how calm the water is – Mindarie Keys looks oblivious to the approaching onslaght

  5. Thanks Dylan – One day we’ll score CF light down south, I can feel it coming:)

    Thanks Chloe for stopping by and your comment, just browsed over your blog, you have some really nice captures on there.

    Thanks Michael – The location of the storm left me with little room for other POV, most of the hotel itself was in darkness. I got lucky with the colors, a few longer exposures I took blew out the light was so intense.

    Thanks Cain – I wish I shot more in light even half this nice … I guess I just need to be out there more. Heres hoping the East coast of Oz turns it on in a few short weeks. Cheers

  8. Thanks William – Mindarie is not one of the most scenic of harbors …
