DARK CLOUDS OVER FREMANTLE

rain

 

There were some very black clouds over Fremantle when I drove onto the South Mole at 7am this morning, so there is still a bit of rain to come, by the look of it.

On my daily pilgrimage to Chalkys for my Espresso fix the light of the rising sun just hit the Roundhouse, with the very dark clouds as backdrop, which made for a dramatic photo.

PRETTY PICTURE JUST PART OF THE STORY

puddle

 

While the large rainwater puddle on the pedestrian and bicycle path below Fremantle’s Arthur’s Head creates this great reflection every time it rains, it is not very convenient for the very many people who travel along the path between Victoria Quay and the Fishing Boat Harbour.

The path is very popular with cyclists from South Fremantle and Coogee on their way to the railway station in the mornings, and is frequented by many hundreds of tourists daily.

The big storm with predicted six-metre high waves has not eventuated so far, so it was probably premature to suspend the Rottnest Island ferry services for the day.

WET, WET, WET, A GOOD DAY TO STAY IN BED

B&W rain

 

Because it is a bit of a slow news day today, and because it rained a lot over night, and because I am not looking forward to a very wet day volunteering at the Roundhouse, I republish the photo I showed yesterday, but this time in Black&White.

It was taken on the Melville foreshore just up from Point Walter, and if you look carefully you can see the Perth skyline through the rainy mist, on the right hand side.

THE LOVELY BEAUTY OF RAIN

I am an incurable romantic and a very Sensitive Old Age Guy, so hence me looking for beauty in just about everything.

There is a bit of rain around Freo today and a lot more expected tomorrow, so try to stay dry and warm.

WHY WET IS WONDERFUL FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

rain

 

Wet weather creates its own art, with reflections in puddles, photos through windows full of raindrops, and raindrops on tables, cars, etc.

Every day is a good day for photographers who have the eye and are observant enough to see the beauty in the ordinary.

I took this photo at the Fremantle Arts Centre this morning.

Happy winter shooting!

HEAVY RAIN IN FREMANTLE

rain

 

This large puddle made access to the City of Fremantle at Fremantle Oval a bit of an adventure. Pedestrians had to wait for cars to pass before attempting to walk along the edge of the water log.

There has been a lot of rain and there are huge puddles on the Esplanade as well, and smaller ones in my home as the drains could not cope. ; >(

HEAVY RAIN IN FREMANTLE

rain 1

 

There has been a lot of rain in Fremantle since yesterday early evening, with some very heavy showers.

The foot and bicycle path near the Roundhouse always gets flooded, and that also effects the  busy railway crossing to the historic tourist destination, so something the City of Fremantle should improve, as it is not great to walk through deep puddles whenever there are showers.

PS: My car was parked at the Elizabeth’s bookshop warehouse when I took the top photo.

There is still a bit of rain around Fremantle, and don’t the gardens and parks love it!

I took this photo of the marina at Be. apartments late yesterday afternoon on my way to the Fremantle Network event.

Enjoy the day and appreciate that we live in a gorgeous city!
