Photographer's Note

I decided to go with the full frame here even though I can see several ways to crop this. Albany is right on the coast and gets a lot of rain, hence the green grass. I like the reflections in this tranquil lagoon & the fg ripples. Just to the right but out of frame is the reconstruction of the brig 'Amity' which sailed into Princess Royal Harbour in Albany from Sydney, in 1826. Unfortunately, the original was wrecked in Bass Strait in 1845. Princess Royal Drive is behind me here.

"The project to build a replica of the brig Amity commenced in 1972. After much discussion and research, construction started in 1975, with local boat builder Mr Stan Austin as project supervisor and Mr Pieter van de Brugge as leading shipwright. Other local craftsmen joined the team, with the aim of making the replica the focal point of celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the brig's arrival.

When you visit this full-size replica, try to imagine more than 50 men, together with stores, sheep and pigs, sharing this small vessel in a difficult journey taking over six weeks."

I may upload a shot of the 'Amity' as a workshop, if anyone is interested.
