2016 Western Australia

This book tells the story of our 2016 trip to Western Australia to photograph the wildflowers.

We went down to the tip of the Yorke Peninsula for the first time and explored all of this sparsely populated area. There were a couple of surprises including the Red Devil display at Minlaton in memory of Captain Harry Butler, the WW1 flying ace.

The photographer in us was astonished at the Hunter Penrose very large format camera. The image size was 1.6m x 1.6m!

We met a bloke in the Farm Shed Museum at Kadina whose forebears had started the Sunshine agricultutal machinery company near Melbourne. The suburb and town was named after the factory and remains so to this day.

We saw whales and a beautiful sunset at Head of Bight. Its a special place and is used by the whales as a safe location for calving.

From there to the Fraser Sheep Station and a greast tour in an Oka and then we turned right and headed for the wildflowers. Carpets of colout to the horizon!

Some night photography at the Pinnacles and then on to Perth and a catch up with Bill & Jo Blundell who then joined us for the rest of the trip to the south.

Altogether an amazing adventure!
