Phase One Tour Day 3 23/2/13

I Slept in the car at Hellfire bay car park and boy did it rain all night even had a lot of lightning and thunder but with the rain as heavy as it was I had no chance of getting any lightning shots.

Anyway I drove around to Thistle Cove to see if I could get a nice sunrise shoot but had no luck there as it was very grey and dull I then headed for Frenchman’s Peak and for about a minute I got an amazing light show

as you can see by the two images below. both 2 image stitches with the 28mm lens. while running around like a mad man I ended up putting a stick into my big toe but soldiered on and got the shots.

Still cant believe that I could pull detail out of the shadows while shooting directly at the sun with no filters!!!!!!! What a camera!

After the morning shoot I headed out to the sand dunes just west of Esperance town and along the way stopped at a tree plantation. I have added a 100% crop of the shot with no sharpening so you can see the Phase at work below, This time taken with the 80mm

I got stuck down a sand dune and after taking a good 6 run up’s I finally got out of the sand dunes and headed to Bremer Bay  at a place called Reef Beach, boy did I scratch the shit out of the car along this track!!!!

A very bumpy 40 min drive later I made it to Reef beach with about an hour and a half before sunset which is lucky because it took me an hour to dig myself out of the beach after getting the old tyre pressure wrong!!! Idiot!
