Day 33 King George Sound Albany and The Natural Bridge Albany from last year

School started and all went well today, so instead of posting about kids and school I am continuing to post about a trip we made to the South West of Australia last year. Today's post covers King George Sound and the Natural Bridge in Albany.

King George Sound
This image toward King George Sound, is a
 frame grab from my Sony HD video camera.
Returning from the Albany wind farm we stopped to record some images of King George Sound as the morning light streamed through the clouds and reflected in the smooth water of the sound.  In this photo you can see the silhouette of  Vancouver Peninsula and not seen, Albany City is to the left.  On Sunday November 1st 1914 a fleet of 38 troopships left Australia from the sound with 30,000 ANZAC troops, the largest fleet assembled in the Southern Hemisphere.  Note the Sound continues beyond Vancouver Sound.

The Natural Bridge Albany
Torndirrup National Park, Albany Western Australia, this natural bridge is weathered into the granite by the Southern Ocean.  We didn’t have the place to ourselves and whilst it was more of a tourist stop rather than a photo shoot I still felt like posting the image.  It would be a great place to return and photograph in different weather conditions and time of day.
