I love Fremantle’s working port and visit the South Mole every day of the week.

This morning I decided to do a small photo feature on the anglers, but departing and arriving container ships opened up another photo opportunity.

LOVING FREMANTLE’S WORKING PORT

I went out to get some bad weather photos this morning, but while it was still blowing a gale on the Fremantle South Mole the sun popped out, so I took some shots of RoRo vessel Trans Leader entering the port.

The Nikon 80-200-F 2.8 I took the photos with is such a brilliant lens, but it was a challenge to keep it steady in the storm.

I love the working port and mis it that I no longer do the professional photography for Fremantle Ports. But I did it for 14 years, so I can’t really complain hey.

When I saw the rainbow over Fremantle this morning I just had to get a photo of it with the Maritime Museum. While there I also could not resist to take yet another reflection photo in one of the big puddles.

COLD AND WET CREATES FREO PORT ART

It was pretty cold early this morning when I took these photos at around 6.30 am on the South Mole.

I first went out of my warm car and took a couple of shots, but the rain came pelting down and created arty images through the side window of the lights in Fremantle Port.

The things I do for my Freo’s View readers, hey! It should be rewarded with some nice hot mulled wine this eve. ;>)

FREMANTLE WATERCOLOURS

Posted in art, city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, photography, Uncategorized by freoview on May 30, 2018

 

 

I keep telling you that I love taking photos of reflections, so here some water colours I took this morning in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.

It’s a gorgeous day out there before another storm will hit Freo tomorrow, so take advantage of it if you can and go for a nice long walk!

We live in a very special place and  we should appreciate it much more than some social media posts want us to believe.

FREMANTLE PORT STUNNING SUNRISE

Summer is back! We are expecting 31 degrees today in Fremantle, so get out the shorts, mini skirts and bathers!

The sunrise over the Maritime Museum was stunning and the warm colours a prediction of what the day will be like.

It was very busy at B Shed with many people sailing out to Rottnest Island.

I believe it is going to be the hottest May in 58 years or so, according to the weather news on TV. Enjoy it!

It feels like summer has returned to Fremantle so the Under the Bridge Foodtrucks are doing the same and will be at the East Street jetty today from around 5-9pm for the last time this season.

Great food and great community vibes, plus stunning sunsets at the port.

FREMANTLE PORT’S MIGHTY TUG BOATS

I love Fremantle’s working port. There is no day that goes by that I don’t drive onto the South or North Mole or go for a wander along Victoria Quay.

I love the always changing scenery of vessels arriving and departing, the sound of containers being put on trucks and majestic huge cruiseliners turning in port on a coin.

I took the photos of this mighty little tug boat yesterday morning just after nine o’clock.
