spring

 

Isn’t it gorgeous! Came across this lovely spring scenery in Shuffrey Street while I was doorknocking in the east end of City Ward.

Met some very lovely people too, but the old legs were calling for a break, so reading a book until I’ll attend Council at 6pm this eve,

WINTER FINALLY ARIVING IN FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, photography, Uncategorized, winter by freoview on July 1, 2017

 

clouds

 

It looks like winter will be arriving in Fremantle a month late this year, with BOM stating it was the hottest June in history after the coldest summer.

I took this photo of the very dark big clouds over the Maritime Museum at 6.45 am this Saturday morning, on my way to coffee at the Moore&Moore cafe.

It was taken at a ridiculously high 6400 ISO because I never travel with a tripod, so needed to do a hand-held shot in quite strong wind.

You’ll get the message. I am trying to find an excuse for the low quality of the image because I am a lazy shooter. ; >)

SHOWING OFF FREMANTLE’S WINTER

Posted in city of fremantle, Uncategorized, weather, winter by freoview on June 4, 2017

I just want to create a bit of envy in Europe and the eastern states and show off Fremantle’s winter. It’s going to be 25 degrees celsius, but maybe even higher and the forecast for tomorrow is similar.

What a gorgeous Sunday on our WA DAY long weekend and thousands of people flocking to Freo for that unique experience one won’t get anywhere else.

AWFUL WET AND COLD FREO SEPTEMBER

rain-1

 

It’s raining and cold and people being miserable about it in good old Freo, including friends visiting from Lismore.

Took this photo in Henry Street just after catching up with the NSW folk at the Moore&Moore cafe.

I am ready for nice warm and dry weather!

SPRING IS IN THE AIR

swanning

 

Spring is in the air with many wildflowers popping up and the sun is finally out as well.

I shot this photo of the swan family at Bibra Lake this morning.

It’s a great time of the year for a walk and to discover some of nature’s beauty. Manning Park just down the road from Fremantle is looking great as well with fantastic views from the lookouts.

A STUNNING FREO WINTER DAY

tree reflection

 

A couple of winter reflections I shot in Fremantle today. The top one is at the Sail&Anchor and the second one just a few metres from there in a rain water puddle.

The sunny weather is not going to last very long according to BOM, so I made the best out of today’s lovely day.

HAVE FUN IN THE WINTER FESTIVAL BUBBLE

Posted in children, family, fremantle, western autralia, winter festival by freoview on July 4, 2016

winter bubble

This long bubble tube at the Fremantle Winter Festival at the Esplanade is very popular with children who run and roll around inside it.

It looks like a whole lot of fun, so can we have a senior night in them as well? Only kidding!

If you haven’t been there, go and check it out. There is ice skating and a huge slide, toboggan, food and drinks and even hot chestnuts and ‘real’ snow.

EARLY MORNING FREO MAGIC

It was a rather crisp start of winter this morning but the early sun light always creates some magic for photographers, as these photos taken in Fleet Street and of the arrival of the cruise ship Pacific Eden show.
