North Fremantle Fuel Tanks


The Railway Hotel is adjacent to these fuel tanks near the North Fremantle Wharf. I usually drive through this industrial area on the way to Fremantle which is a fascinating contrast: beautiful beaches, swimmers and surfing on one side of the road and the industrial - fuel tanks, sea containers and trucks thundering past - on the other.

  1. Making the mundane beautiful. It's an art form and you have done it brilliantly.

  2. I never thought I'd say this about a fuel tank, but... pretty! Well shot, Rae.

  3. It's always been a contrast that road Rae, with the beach on one side and fuel tanks and silos on the other. Alan is right, somehow you have captured the tank in exactly the right light to transform it into another dimension!

  4. Makes me think of Monet's haystacks
