Resting Boats

Posted by mervfrench on July 27, 2010

We were driving past the  boat marina just around from the Raffles ( help me here Mark, not sure of the name ) a couple of weeks ago and thought this might make a shot. The dark edges at the top is  from a  overhanging tree.

    Wasn’t sure if it was South Perth or not.

    Yeah i think the Content Aware would sure do that pretty quick , but as I don’t have it yet it can stay there.

    Can’t help you with the name of the marina but I’m pretty sure the Raffles is a pub – so this photo was taken near a pub was it? Sounds like another one for the book 🙂

  4. Nice Merv, how about a 3:1 panoramic crop?

  5. Its actually “South of Perth Yacht Club” not South Perth Yacht Club, most people call it South Perth. Nice shot Merv. I go for a walk past here heaps. About 10M to the right of where you took this photo there are some rails in the water, you can still see them quite clearly, it was the location of a very early and busy shipyard. 🙂


  6. Hi Merv,

    I’m down near Mt Henry, but I do spend a lot of time in this area. There is meant to be an old paddle steamer sunk near the point but I’ve never actively looked for it.

    You’d better get the floaties and goggles on and have a look for it Jamie. 🙂

    Might make a nice underwater shot with your housing.

  8. What’s left of her would be buried deep in mud I’m sure mate.

    At Heathcote (hill behind the yacht club) there is another wreck but clearly visiable in less than one metre of water.

    The second paddle steamer at Coffee Point

    This old lady down in Bullcreek was Perth’s first ferry. You can still see her sticking out of the water at low tide.

      That’s interesting.

      Seems like Captain’s Crocker and Moore might have had a liking for rum. they managed to loose two steamers …. good effort that !!!!

        Hey Jamie …. must give you a ring one day, we are often down at Como on weekends, better go and see if we can get some snapshots sometime.

  9. Merv I’d like that. Would be good fun mate.

    Wow… great scene, might have liked a pano like what Andrew said. Having said that, the shot does work very well. I like the White Balance you have put on the image.

  13. Great colour Merv.
