Hutt Lagoon

Hutt Lagoon is a naturally occurring pink lake which is coloured by a particular type of bacteria which reside in the lake.  Suffice to say, the almost alien landscape is quite a contrast to the surrounding green hills.

Painted Cliffs

Kalbarri is a coastal anomaly in Western Australia as it’s the only area in the southern half of the state where sandstone meets the ocean.  In general, south to Perth and north to the North West shelf, all of the cliffs are limestone.  This anomaly makes for a fantastic melange of contrasting colours.

Detail of Z Bend Fault

As mentioned yesterday, the Z Bend is caused by a fault, which is clearly detailed in the left hand side of the image vanishing towards the centre.  The fault also allows for a lot of trees to get a start.

Z Bend

The Z Bend is a geological rarity where a river takes a 90° turn owing to a horizontal fault in the underlying rock.  The fault can be seen trailing off to the left in this image (I’ll post an up close of it tomorrow).  The fault allows water to erode out more easily the rock underneath, causing the water to take the path of least resistance and thus, a right hand turn.

Pastels

Only for a few brief months of the year do the Yarra Yarra Lakes near Carnamah become inundated with water, but when they do they make for a fantastic sight.  From the viewing are several kilometres away they seem to shimmer and sparkle with water gradually moved from side to side by the wind.  Up close, they take on an ethereal quality; it can be hard to tell where the lake ends and the sky begins.

Onwards and Upwards

A far from uncommon sight on the Perth skyline in recent years is that of crane towers.  Here though, one working on a building on the foreshore is draped on an evening sky against the bottle like glass of the Perth Bell Tower.

At Day’s End II

While they are in completely different parts of the city, I couldn’t help being reminded of this photo upon seeing the results of the one presented today.
