The Sun sets in the West 7 Replies Over in Perth the other weekend for a most enjoyable few days. Snapped a couple of sunsets while I was there, which I thought I’d share. Both of these were taken at Mandurah looking out over the Indian Ocean. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related

Nicely composed and captured photos. They brought back memories of a visit over twenty years ago. The coastline differs greatly from our Gulf. WA have steep beaches with coarse redish sand and a strong undertow.
Thanks Jason. Generally I find exposed ocean beaches to be steeper than protected waters such as Gulf St Vincent. The beaches around the Murray mouth would be an exception, being much more gently sloped due, I am assuming, to the continual add of material from the river outflow. In these WA photos, the beach sand is deposited on top of a shallow rock reef that extends, I would guess, to about the edge of the surf break at low tide.
You can thank nature for the sunset. I just happened to be there to record it. Beats sitting at a desk, no question!
