La Perouse

La Perouse was named after Le Compte de Laperouse, a French explorer who arrived here in 1788. It is located on the northern side of Botany Bay and is a popular picnic spot. My friend Bob Cann's father used to have a snake show there every Sunday afternoon. This series of images were taken in the winter of 2005. I was lucky enough to get some late afternoon light hitting the sandstone and the shipwreck there. I wasn't lucky enough to get 15 shots for Eclectic Exhibitions but at least they will have a home here.
