Rocky Point, Eagle Bay

20 Jan 2010 at 8:01am

Taken a few days ago after I managed to drag myself away from the gallery to get some new landscape images. This scene is a short walk from Eagle Bay and on the right day you get some pretty cool waves there. Still with the recent sightings of a great white and two hammerheads 200 metres off shore it is better to just imagine what the water would be like.

I wonder if the guy on the yacht is happy………………………. probably a big YES!!! Hell the rest of us were working. Even me!! This was a hard shot to take as the flies kept getting in the way. Forget dust spots on the ccd, I was spotting flies!! It was also hot, oh I wish I had a 9 to 5 office job, anyone want to swap???
Hmmm air-conditioning, fluro lights, bosses, bad tea, annoying co-workers, peak hour traffic, thats the life for me.

    Yeah sure it is Christian …

    Just think of how many days the guy in the yatch had to spend in a boring 9 to 5 office job to be able to afford his yatch. He’s probably 85 and too old to enjoy it 😀

    Nice pic by the way, is Rocky Point between Eagle Bay and Meelup?.

    One of my favourite surf breaks mate and nicely captured for sure!

    If I remember correctly, I was talking to you on the phone when you were taking this shot and that tree on the left is where I leave my gear when I go out there!

    A very nice CF classic capture – sorry to hear you suffered so intolerably to get it but that’s the life of an artist I guess. I’d swap you jobs for a while but I know you don’t like pain, blood or smelly smells.

    Do other people attract the flies down there too or is it just you 😉

    The guy on the boat is probably below decks reading photography books under a fluoro light, wondering why he can’t seem to capture the beauty down there the way pro’s do. He’s probably going to head off and buy a 5D2 shortly.

  4. awesome- this’ll get a few of your old faithful fans happy 🙂

    A Yep again …. 2 in a row , unreal from me.

    The guy on the boat is probably running his business from there, making the rest of us look ordinary.

  7. Excellent shot CF. Love it. I really feel for you, you have it hard down there!

    Hi Christian,

    I was down at Eagle Bay not too long ago and this photo perfectly displays what I remember about it, crystal clear water with no sign of a wave anywhere.

    Whilst I was down south I had a look around in your Dunsborough gallery (on 4 separate occasions) and your photos looked even more amazing in full print than they had done on a screen. I found your gallery both breathtaking and inspiring. Awesome!

    Stunning. Guess I will need to make a trip west this year after seeing your photos of the past week. Who knows – I may even borrow the yacht.
