Playing with pop on two bird photographs using Grungetastic. There are hundreds of variations possible. These lend themselves to old-fashioned screen printing.

The wind was making its presence felt from the early hours of this morning on the Cape. It was enough to rule out some planned activities including a tidal boat trip out of Cygnet Bay cancelled due to the choppy waters.
We took a drive along the beach allocated to fishing.
These fellows are demonstrating what it’s like to tempt crocodiles from deeper beach waters.
On a clear day, the lighthouse stands white and proud.
The beach ride required 18 psi on the tyres (note how well I’m picking up the jargon after 8 weeks on the road). Here’s where we pumped up again.
On the way out, we noticed this small fire on the road.
Thence it was on to Cygnet Bay where the tide was rushing in over the mangroves. We checked out the pearl farm guided tour in lieu of the boat trip.
As we turned into the road coming back from Cygnet Bay, another driver coming out let us know that the camp was in lock down. This may have been the reason.
The staff were in full fire management mode before water tanks, police and fire officers arrived on the scene. A few of the campers got into the swing of things too.
This chopper hovered above just as flames were being extinguished around the lighthouse.
As I write there are still spot fires emerging and being managed as they occur. It’s handy having a UHF radio and listening in on what’s happening.
The lighthouse pic to the left is what it was like yesterday. Smoke certainly got into our eyes today.
And so to the tip of the Dampier Peninsula with sand roads for the first half and bitumen on the home stretch. For a region in winter it sure is heating up. It was still 35 degrees at 6.30 this evening.
We made tracks to the lighthouse and down to the eastern beach soon after we arrived, then across to the other side of the peninsula to absorb some more red sand moments as the sun set.
This is where we’re headed tomorrow.
North to Cape Leveque.
For three nights.
