Cottesloe Beach Pylon

The famous local Pylon at Cottesloe Beach. Really not sure why this Pylon is so close to the beach or what purpose it serves these days as it was built in 1936 and is the last remaining feature of the shark proof fence that once lay 80 meters off the beach. I think it has more historical value than anything else and has been used in several inter surf club practical jokes over the year. In 2003 I read that is was deemed a heritage landmark.

Well this is how I see the Pylon a Cottesloe Beach. I’m glad it is still there even though it is starting to look very weathered and worn. Its nice to see some things remain in Perth from yesteryear with so many historic sites now bulldozed since the 1980′s.

Cottesloe Beach Western Australia

This week I have added a few new images to the Spool Photography Galleries. The first being a limited edition image of Western Australia’s Premier Beach, Cottesloe Beach. Located just 20 minutes outside the City of Perth, Cottesloe Beach has many restaurants and cafes along its strip to enjoy an early morning breakfast while the sun rises from the east or dinner and drinks while watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean. An extremely popular beach year round, the beach has lights for those long warm evenings on the white sandy beach.

Here is an image I took around a week ago at sunrise, my favorite time of the day at Cottesloe Beach.
