Ningaloo Reef Magic At Exmouth

Hi Everyone,

As we sat in the helicopter I thought we were going to have a pretty cool two hours hanging over some of the best spots around Exmouth but I had no idea just how awesome the next two hours were going to be.    This was probably the best part of the trip for me.   Once we reached 1000ft and started heading out to the coast from Learmonth Airport I saw Ningaloo Reef and was just amazed at how big it was and how colourful it was.  This helicopter ride was a landscape and seascape photographers dream come true.   For me nothing came close to this over the entire trip.    Well maybe videoing the humpback whales the day before by helicopter was better than this but it would be a close call.

As landscape photographers we get to see some pretty amazing sites and scenes and for that I am eternally grateful.

Did anyone manage to capture the sunset tonight?

As a landscape photographer what would you most want to photograph?  For me it would probably be Alaska, Cook Islands / Hawaii and Paris.

Thanks for stopping by crew as always all comments are always appreciated,

Jamie Paterson

    • Hi Katie,

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I’ve been in stacks of helicopters but none were as exciting as this one. Yes I loved the colours as well. The reef just stretched for miles below us.

  3. Hi Jamie, lived in Exmouth for 7 months on my travels so now I feel just a little homesick after seeing this beautiful shot

    • Hi Andrew,

      Thank you for the comment and thanks for the compliment. What did you do up there? The reef is such an amazing spot to photograph but the other spot that really struck a chord with us was Charles Knife Canyon.

  4. It was just after Uni and was on my way around Oz, had relo’s there so was doing a few odd jobs here and there but mainly chilling out….tennis, golf, indoor cricket (outdoors!), bike riding (out to Charles Knife), camping on the beach, sandboarding, snorkelling, fishing, swimming, sailing…….just depressed myself with this list actually…..it was where my interest in photography really began I guess. Some other good spots on the other side if you haven’t been is Yardie Creek and all of the beaches, with Turquoise being the pick of the bunch.

    • Hi Andrew,

      I’ve got some shots of Yardie Creek from the air and Turquoise as well. Christian, Mike. Larry and I ducked around to Turquoise after the flight to get some photos from the ground. I went for a swim, Larry and Christian got some photos while Mike had a beer.
