Walpole …..

Posted by mervfrench on January 29, 2010

This shot was taken  from the town jetty at Walpole on a recent January evening . Walpole  is a great little town and we stayed in a nice  B&B  overlooking this inlet as a break from the camper .  When I woke the next morning at first light and looked out of the window there was a nice mist over the water and surrounding hills.

Did  I jump out and race off to get a great shot of the misting morning ….. no I pulled the doona up and went back to sleep.  Not too often where we live do we get the chance to pull up a doona in January and I wasn’t going to miss the chance.

    That gets an ‘A+’ in my book, that’s a seller, well done! I’d have got up got the shot and then gone straight back to bed. Get with the program!

    Nice Merv, I love this place, home town for me, my father was born and raised in Nornalup. I love this time of morning anywhere not just there, however cruising out across the inlet at this time of day heading for the ocean for a serious deep sea fishing trip is always a memorable one. Awesome clouds by the way.
    Do I get a xmas card now hehehe !

  13. Nice one Merv. I was born in Albany and just about every Christmas holidays we went to Walpole. Does that make me a local too?

  14. Hi Merv, great shot mate, this is one of my favs of yours so far… I have some friends who have just taken over one of the caravan parks in Walpole so I think a trip south may be on the cards for me too at some point soon.

    Awesome video Merv (see CF’s Blog), just awesome, A+++!

  20. Very nice image Merv!

  21. Nice dark theme and colours Merv,
    The glassy water is awesome, just a bugger it doesn’t stitch well.
    But could be easily tidied up.
