SAFETY Bay resident Ron Carter regularly sends in photos to the Weekend Courier.

The 75-year-old has lived in Rockingham for 12 years and loves everything about it.

“It’s got everything – the ocean, lakes, bush and kangaroos,” he said.

“It’s got the best sunsets, they’re perfect.”

Mr Carter has been taking photos for about 17 years and enjoys taking photos of sunsets and birds.

Some of his snaps have gone around the world, such as a photo he took of a Bali volcano.

Mr Carter has both Canon and Nikon cameras and doesn’t think much of camera phones.

“I’d prefer a camera anytime,” he said.

“It’s disheartening taking photos with phones; they’re good but don’t quite do it.”

As well as photography, Mr Carter’s other hobby is painting.

Thanks to our national partners Canon Australia and Harvey Norman and our state partner REIWA.
