The retired real estate agent and self-described ‘amateur photographer’ lives in the Joondalup North estate and visits the park on the lake’s edge ‘every morning’.

He photographed the moon rise last Wednesday evening over Lake Joondalup and east over where he helped sell market gardening land to developers for the building of suburbs Ashby, Tapping and Sinagra.

‘I think it is an amazing venue for photographers any time of the day,’ he said.

‘But particularly morning and night. I’ve got hundreds of reflection shots on my hard drive. I better get them onto disk, because if it crashes I will lose everything.’

He said the park was easily accessible.

‘Kings Park hasn’t got access to the water; the beauty of Neil Hawkins Park is you can get right up to the water’s edge with your wellingtons on and commune with the birds.’
