Canal Rocks – Yallingup Seascape
About three weeks ago I headed down south as it had been awhile since I’d been down there. I managed to tear around all over the place and see all the familiar spots that we all love. The swell that weekend was absolutely massive, I headed down to Wyadup Rocks my first morning down there and if you’ve ever been to them early morning you’ll know that you spend more time looking at the ground trying to make your way down there rather than looking at the scenery. Imagine my shock when I got down amongst the rocks and looked up at this wave that arrived out of the dark almost head height and slammed into the rocks! I got drenched and the car had said it was 4 degrees before I got out of it, fortunately the camera was still dry. I setup shop a little bit further back up the rocks and got some great photos.
Saturday evening saw me out at Canal Rocks and I took a walk around to the left of Canal Rocks instead of shooting Canal Rocks themselves and was presented with some really interesting rock formations. This is a photo from that location settings were: F16, iso50, .3sec shutter speed. The swell was still thumping through so I had to keep an eye out for the really big waves and scramble if I saw one, it was a hair raising experience!!! Who said Landscape Photography was boring? I visited Bunker Bay on Saturday morning and even though I didn’t get anything I was happy with I certainly walked away with a whole stack of ideas for another shoot there.
My favourite part of this photo is the water movement on the bottom lefthand side of the photograph. I’ve never managed to capture water streaking across like that before.
Has anyone else been down south recently?
Hope you all had a great weekend,
