Rottnest Island and Further Abyss Exploring

By Flemmingbo

rottnest-fbj-abyss I had a most fantastic weekend at Rottnest Island with True North Mark and family, thanks so much to you Mark and Lee-Anne. Everything was just gold, from monster crayfish to snorkeling with a large stingrays to capturing aweinspiring clouds on a perfect Saturday at Rottnest. And ending the trip on an extreme high down below I had my scuba dive no. 2. I shall tell the story in a few of my quickly developed snapshots, do read on.

Mark with two of five monster crayfish he caught while diving. Yes 17mm makes it look like a really cool 50s scifi movie poster (Return of The Man with Crayfish Hands!) but these were actually quite large crayfish!

Quintessential Rottnest on a most perfect Saturday at Longreach Bay:

The lighthouse a while later at rise of the full moon (which I shall possible paste in later from another exposure) :

Finally, as mentioned I did my second scuba dive lesson with my good friend True North Mark and it was even more amazing this time. Jumping, well, falling, backwards in from the tender boat and a 20 minute dive at 5 meters depth among fish and corrals navigating coral walls and tunnels. Sensational, I am so hooked and thank you so much Mark. Image by Mark, well done mate, as that Canon G11 is almost impossible to shoot with underwater:

Rottnest Bliss. Nowhere else but here.
