The coastal part of my recent trip to north-west Western Australia. Most of these were taken around Kalbarri and Coral Bay. All with the Olympus E-3 and ZD 50-200 SWD.

Comment and critique welcome!

Another great series- I'd say the first two are the best.

All nice shots, Nick. Particularly like 1,2,& 3. The lighting in #3 is great, would have been nice a little closer but, I know, not always possible.
A small amount of cropping perhaps? Nevertheless, I like them all.

Thanks guys!

Bruce: the third one's already been cropped within an inch of it's life! There's only so far that you can go with 10mp I was standing on a sand dune quite a way from the point, and handheld with not much light so the shutter speed was no where near what it should be...

Great series. I love the light you have captured in almost all of these.
