Sand Crabs


On our way back from the Little Beach we took a wrong turn. OK, I took a wrong turn. We stopped for a second to re-program the navigation unit. While I was doing that my wife asked: what is that crawling on the sand? We all looked and the whole regions of sand seemed to shift. We all got out of the car to discover thousands of little sand crabs walking together on the beach. I must admit I have never seen this beautiful blue sand crab before, not one, let alone thousands.

I took a lot of photos but these crabs were moving rather fast and as a result only few came out well. This is certainly a spot I will be returning to soon.

Colours, shapes and patterns of Little Beach


I have visited my friend Chris last night. Over some very good spaghetti and a glass of red wine we had a look through his photographs from his last Western Australian adventure. He, and his partner Margaret travel a lot and take some very beautiful landscapes.

Inspired somehow by their colourful show I went this morning with my family to a near by Little Beach. The weather was nice and the slightly overcast sky provided for some very vivid images. As usual there is a lot of sandstone formations, which I really like to photograph. There are rock patterns and a lot of vivid colour. Please visit my Little Beach photographic Gallery.
