Back to my Roots



This has quickly become a popular image in my galleries. This storm was heading straight for Dunsborough but at the last moment headed east towards Capel. It formed a mini tornado that cut a swath of destruction just south of the town. If you are driving down south you will see it just the southern end of Capel on the South West Highway.

I was with Nick Rains and my brother when this shot was taken.

  1. Very nice, lovely colours, particularly that one half is cool and the other is warm. I remember driving down the next week and seeing all this debris all over the place. Must have been quite a storm.

    Hope you’ve been keeping well, CF!

      it is amazing the damaged it caused. I was hoping it came over us and it was heading our way. Just lucky it didn’t in hind sight. All good here Paul, all the best to the family.

      • Cleggy says:

        I can not describe the absolute brilliance of that camera! As you know.
        I have given it back now what a depressing day that was!!
        Cheers Mate.

        • cfletcher says:

          ahhh that would be horrible. At least you had some quality time with it mate, and some of the images you got looked brilliant. Yes there is no camera out there that matches it for sheer awe! Even the D800E as good a camera it is for the money it isn’t a Phase One killer if you are talking purely landscape photography done slow and with perfect technique. When you nail it on the Phase you just melt.

  6. Paul says:

    Beautiful shot, soft tones and transitions throughout are fantastic. Nailed it!
