Lunar Eclipse over Perth, Western Australia – October 8, 2014

The ‘blood moon’ of the lunar eclipse over the city of Perth, Western Australia.

A little fun and experimentation with multiple exposure images and multiple lenses with the purpose of emphasizing the eclipsed “blood moon” over downtown Perth.
This is a double exposure image (two images) shot on the same camera body, but with two different lenses (the city at 73mm, the moon at 400mm).
The moon is, shall we say, ridiculously out of scale, but there is certainly emphasis on it 😉

Posting #12 of my road trip from Fremantle to Kununurra, Western Australia.

The 12th and final posting of my trip up to Kununurra and back!
This is a small collection of images from a brief detour to visit the wonderful Tunnel Creek National Park.

The view as you near Tunnel Creek along Leopold Downs Road. This is part of the Napier Range: Devonian reef from 350 – 375 million years ago.

Underneath the bluff in the following picture is ‘Tunnel Creek’ – a 750 meter erosion tunnel through the Napier Range, eroded by a creek. The tunnel is purported to be the oldest cave system in Western Australia!

This is a day-use park only; this is my trusty 1984 Toyota Hilux in the parking area – only a very short hike to the cave entrance.
