Crawley Edge Boatshed


Crawley Edge Boatshed, also known as the Blue Boat House, is an iconic boat house in Crawley on the Swan River in Perth.

Over the years, I have seen many images of it, and it seems to be the quintessential Perth image. Naturally, I had to visit and photograph it myself.

On what was effectively my final night for photography in Perth during this trip, the sky conditions were not ideal, and there was a strong, cold wind blowing; but I persisted, and this is the result.

A symmetrical composition, looking straight down the jetty, is quite a popular approach to this subject; and while I did shoot that type of composition, I found this angled view from the southern side to be more dynamic and appealing.
