Cape Naturaliste Sunsets

Cape Naturaliste Yallingup Sunsets Australian Landscape Photography

Hi Everyone,

Why the title ‘Soul Cleansing Sunsets”?   I guess because this was one of those spots that you just feel so connected with when you’re taking photos of it.   There were no clouds when I set out but I wasn’t stressed about it.   I just knew that I was going to find a really nice and secluded spot and just enjoy myself, and that is exactly what happened.   I’m beginning to realise that the less you worry about the camera and the more you just enjoy the scenery and use the camera to record what is going on, the better your shots will be.

I’ve seen so many landscape photographers who view the sunsets and sunrises through their viewfinders and then walk away without any recolection of what the scene actually looked like.   That doesn’t sound like fun to me.   The more I let my camera share my journey rather than letting my camera control me, the more I’m enjoying my photography and the results of my photography.   How often do you shoot from the heart?

Well that is about as deep as I get. 😉   I hope you all enjoy this photo.

    • Hi William,

      Thank you for commenting mate. From the quality of your work I was pretty sure you were one of those people who absorb the area that they are in.

  7. Very good shot mate!
    I agree about just enjoying yourself! If you read about my latest shot you will realise i really wasnt worrying about the shot but although i was wondering the dunes by myself while everyone else was a the the wedge shacks i was having such a good time, feeling alone and secluded, with good light and great photographic opportunities! 🙂

    • Hi Dylan,

      I love your latest post. Its awesome and it just shows that you were totally comfortably and in tune with nature at the time. Thanks the compliment on the photo. Much appreciated!

  8. Very nice Jamie, great leading lines here drawing us into the shot. Horizon is perhaps a touch higher in the frame than I like but that’s a matter of opinion. Good work!

    Some awesome coastline down South, I could go again tomorrow for sure!

    • Hi Flemming,

      Welcome back to the blog and I’m sorry that I missed you whilst you were in Perth. Thanks for the comment and you are right down south has some fantastic shorelines. We are looking at heading to Broome in July so hopefully we’ll find some great coastlines around there as well.
