Beau­ti­ful pho­tos show off the sea

The best of the Nin­ga­loo Coast has been cap­tured in a wide-rang­ing ama­teur pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tion run by the Ex­mouth Vis­i­tor Cen­tre.

The com­pe­ti­tion en­cour­aged pho­tog­ra­phers to sub­mit their shots from the lo­cal area in cat­e­gories in­clud­ing scenic, wildlife, unique ex­pe­ri­ences, kids and an over­all win­ner.

Pop­u­lar res­i­dents such as manta rays, tur­tles, whale sharks and hump­back whales fea­tured promi­nently among a large con­tin­gent of un­der­wa­ter shots.

There were plenty of kan­ga­roos and hill­top views, par­tic­u­larly from the Vlam­ingh Head light­house, sub­mit­ted as well.

Pippa Lu­cas won the kids cat­e­gory with a pic­ture of the big prawn lit up un­der a starry night sky.

She was fol­lowed by Sarah Hum­mer­ston’s sun­set tum­ble­weed and Macey Turner’s panorama from the Vlam­ingh Head light­house look­out.

A fully air­borne hump­back whale pho­tographed near Co­ral Bay was more than enough for Ed Card­well to take out the wildlife sec­tion.

A full list of win­ners and 30 fi­nal­ists has been posted on the Ex­mouth Vis­i­tor Cen­tre’s Face­book page.
