This weekend of 28th April 2013 I spent a great weekend in Broome, Western Australia. A highlight of the trip was a full day tour around the Dampier Peninsula with Kimberley Aviation to see the Horizontal Waterfalls, Cape Leveque, Cygnet Bay, tidal flows, etc.
The photo opportunities were plentiful and I now have a small selection available on my website: Dampier Peninsula Photography Gallery
It is probably not immediately obvious by looking at the content of my website, so I’ll put it here: I’m on Vimeo! My Vimeo feed includes various astrophotograhpy timelapse videos. The most recent video is the Occultation of Jupiter by The Moon:

Last weekend was great fun – went travelling down to Albany and stayed overnight Saturday in hope of capturing some Aurora!
There was no aurora but it’s always so great getting to see the south coast again. Such nice weather and spectacular scenery, particularly on this occasion.
During the night clouds and zero aurora activity conspired to prevent astrophotography of any kind, but in the following Sunday morning we had the opportunity to do about 30 minutes of photography running around the Gap and Natural Bridge area snapping a few pics before heading home.
Photographs here: Albany and South Coast
PS. Absolutely love the Canon 8-15mm F/4 Fishey! Such a perfect lens, proving its self over and over again.
