Wellstead’s Bremer Bay

I just got back from a fairly cool weekend down in Bremer Bay. A group of us called Southern Explorers gathered for 2 days of motor bike riding. All of the hard core off rodies went off and I spent the day exploring a few tracks and ended up at Wellsead’s Museum. I can tell you that no doubt the best $6 you will spend in a while. There is tones of old stuff there. I would guess 10,000 articles from tractors to wood working tools.

A very cool place indeed. Look out for more from here soon, just smashed this one out real quick, 9 image hand held late in the arvo in the rain!

Cheers guys

  1. Now that’s one place I have not seen in my travels. Work takes me 600ks a day up to jerramungup via broomhill gnowangerup ongerup. But never seen the welstead area. this is one I have to check out sometime. Nice capture, I love the black and white treatment

    • Thanks Julie. You must stop by there one day. There is a cafe there as well. Yes I like the B/W as well.
      I am posting a couple more now, just working them!


  2. I will, just posted my landscapes on my blog, unfortunately I have a crop camera so it does not take full advantage of my 17-40 L lens and I’m not into tripods or stitching like you πŸ™‚ One day i will get a full frame camera for landscapes.

  3. Loovvveeee this photo David, would have to be one of my favourites!!!!!!! Gotta love old building and the black/white really tops this photo off. πŸ™‚

  4. Hey David, nice image love the composition. did you do the b&w conversion with nik software, silver efex? Cheers Adrian

    • Hi Adrian, cheers for the nice comment!

      I worked the image like I do in PS, levels, sharpening all of that and the last thing was a black and white layer. I keep forgetting to uses silver efex!

      i also have the Rocco Ancora action set(for my wedding stuff) and there is a couple of very good b/w there.

      Cheers mate

  5. Hi David, I really like this shot. Looks bvery old world, which you don’t see much in Australia. I haven’t tried b&w yet, maybe ‘ll have to give it a go!

    • Hello Jo, thanks for stopping by my blog!

      I just love old buildings aand try to include them in my wedding photo shoots as much as possible.

      I think the B/W pulls the texture out in the rocks well.



  6. Love this one David, B&W suits it really well and it’s well composed to suit the subject. Awesome shot πŸ™‚


  7. I like this black and white mate.
