Jamie Paterson – Images of Inspiration, Captivation, and Fascination

Cape Naturaliste Chillout

Hi Crew,

I got the opportunity to head down south for Friday night so I took it with both arms open.   I decided I was going to head out to Cape Naturaliste and I made it just before sunset and with only minutes to spare.   So I had to quite literally sprint down the track and down the limestone cliffs to get to this beach.  It must have been pretty funny to watch, I’m not exactly the worlds greatest runner!

After catching my breath I decided to try and capture the big waves that were thumping through in the background with these rocks in the foreground.   The waves were just huge and breathtaking to watch.   After all the shooting it was off to Mike Fletcher’s house to feast on an amazing Thai Beef salad that his wife Ali cooked up for us.  Delicious!

Hope you guys enjoy the shot.

Jamie Paterson

    Fantastic mood and tones Jamie – I like the timing and composition of that breaking wave too – really sets the shot off.

    • Hey Tony. Thanks very much for that. It wasn’t easy to get. You know hard it gets to time those waves once you start using long exposures. I’m looking forward to more of your shots from your trip to the high country.

  5. I really love this Jamie, well done. Like how the storm and the waves roll in towards the viewer. I might perhaps try cropping the bottom

    • Cheers Flemming. It was an awesome evening and it was beautiful just watching those waves crashing against the rocks.

      Thanks very much mate. It was all about timing and fortunately Mother Nature decided to play the game!

    • Adrian!,

      Thanks mate. Looks like the swell is up majorly this weekend so its time to go out and get some stunning shots of waves smashing against the rocks.

    I enjoyed the shot a lot! It just so relaxing to the eyes and the aesthetics of it is to die for. I can almost smell the sea just by looking at it, keep it up!

    • Hi Haydee,

      Wicked. Glad you liked it. I was trying to bring the whole standing by the experience to people and I guess by your comment I might’ve done that. Woo Hoo.
