This is my favourite image captured at Orpheus Is. We hiked over the island pre-dawn through the dense rain-forest for about an hour and a half to get to this beach. The track was steep and frequently diverted due to fallen trees from Cyclone Yasi. I was scouting around the beach when I saw the sun breaking through - a mad scramble to setup the tripod and capture a series of images.
Just flew into Perth and made a run straight to the beach! I miss this coast now that I live in Bendigo. Here is a shot from Trigg Beach just on sunset tonight.
