En­tries soar as drones cap­ture aerial views

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE river­side beauty of Mos­man Bay has been cap­tured by Kwinana drone pho­tog­ra­pher Nick Raf­ferty in his win­ning cover shot for the coun­cil’s 2019 cal­en­dar.

“Orig­i­nally I went to get a mir­ror im­age of Mos­man’s Restau­rant, but when I put the drone up I thought ‘wow, what a great pic­ture of the bay’,” Mr Raf­ferty said.

The coun­cil had more than 90 en­tries from pro­fes­sional and am­a­teur drone pho­tog­ra­phers for its cal­en­dar be­fore the 13 fea­tured shots were cho­sen.

Pho­tog­ra­phers were told to fol­low the theme of ‘From a Bird’s Eye View’ and re­flect the town’s di­verse lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing beaches, rivers, parks and re­serves, mixed with man­made fea­tures in places such as Mount Lyell Park.

The youngest en­trant was Mos­man Park’s Tate Fair­banks (13), who cap­tured an im­age fea­tured as the cal­en­dar’s in­side cover us­ing a drone bought with money from the Mos­man Park Youth Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil’s youth en­cour­age­ment grants.

Mos­man Park Mayor Brett Pollock said given the strength of this year’s en­tries, a theme of the town’s clas­sic and vin­tage cars was be­ing con­sid­ered for the 2020 cal­en­dar.
