Soak­ing up the at­mos­phere

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Looklocal -

A BLOOD red sun from smoke haze com­bined with no wind and swell to cre­ate eerie yet per­fect con­di­tions for stand-up pad­dlers, surfers and surf foil­ers in Cottes­loe on Wed­nes­day evening.

Car bays were at a pre­mium when the Western Sub­urbs Weekly cap­tured these images of those on the wa­ter en­joy­ing their sports at sev­eral pop­u­lar lo­ca­tions south of the Cottes­loe Groyne.

The red light cast by the de­scend­ing sun, The Cove, Iso­lated, Tele­phone Box, Dutch Inn and Deep Six surf breaks had surfers us­ing boards suited to each spot.

A trio of long­board­ers en­joy­ing Iso­lated. Smoky con­di­tions were cre­ated by pre­scribed burns to lessen bush­fire dan­ger in the Perth Hills in Mun­dar­ing and Dwellingup.
