Yep. Another file that has been sitting on my Mac for about one and a half years, not because I didn’t like it but just because I forgot about it. I’d been setting up at Yallingup main break for a sunset shoot, but couldn’t shake the feeling that I really wasn’t in the right place. Something kept telling me to head on over to Injidup Point and I decided to listen and jump in the car with only a few minutes to spare to get there.
As I was driving into the carpark I was presented with this scene. A double rainbow as a rain shower was passing. I stopped the car, grabbed the camera and popped off this shot before heading down to the beach. I’m pretty happy now that I took the shot as I reckon its a pretty cool shot. The afternoon glow from the setting sun along with the rainbows is just another visual splendor that I’ve managed to experience at Injidup.
Can you believe Christmas is almost here again? Unbelievable. This photo of Twilight Cove in Esperance was taken quite sometime ago and its always been on my list of things to do so I thought I’d finally do it. Let me start by saying that neither the rocks or water have been saturated at all. For those of you who have been down to Esperance you’ll know that the water is a remarkable blue and of course that its freezing cold!
I’m hoping to be able to get back down to Esperance soon to capture more of its beauty though this time I might head out to Cape Arid as well as spending time around the town itself.
Have a great week everyone and I hope that you’ve all bought you’re presents and avoided the last minute shopping rush.
How awesome is weather that we’ve been having at the moment? On Friday evening I thought I’d go for the tourist shot of Perth from the South Perth foreshore and once I got there I managed to spot a few good angles that I thought would be good at sunset. It soon became apparent though that Mother Nature had other ideas and that the action was going to be elsewhere.
I hopped back into the car and headed across to Como Jetty to capture the sunset there instead. Its funny because as I was driving down the freeway on my way to the city I had looked at the Como Jetty and said to myself that is the spot for tonight but I still continued onto the Perth foreshore. It just goes to show that you should listen to your gut feeling! Instinct is a powerful tool.
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Now its time to hit the beach to see what I can get.
Okay, I’m just going to come out with it and say this is my favourite photo that I’ve taken in a long time. It has everything that I strive to capture in my photos. Its got a nice warming colour and strong water movement as well. I had to wait for just the right moment and exposure to get those reflections in the water and to capture the wave exploding onto the reef.
Hopefully this photo will earn me Mr Flemming’s ‘King of the Waves’ tittle again. I think it will as I’ve managed to capture my passion for the ocean in this photo.
I hope you guys all like it as well,
I managed to capture this shot last weekend while I was down south. I thought I’d finished shooting for the night and was actually walking back to the car when I turned around once last time and saw this scene. Needless to say I had to unpack my camera as quickly as possible as I won’t going to miss capturing this moody, dramatic, stormy sunset. For those who like to know:
Aperture – F11
ISO – 1oo
Shutter – 6secs
Filter – 3 stop GND Singh Ray filter
As always I’m glad that I turned around as I was walking off. Have you guys ever done that? Started to walk off only to find that your best shot was unfolding right behind your back?
Well I wasn’t going to go out tonight. You all know the usual story, too cold, too windy and its raining. Something told me to just get out there and shoot. Let’s face it, if you’re not there and the sunset fires up then its a shoot you’ll never get back. So I headed down to Cottesloe Beach and I just felt that it was the place to be, I drove up to Trigg Beach, Bennion Beach and North Beach before I headed back down to Cottesloe. I should’ve just stuck with my original decision! I got so many interesting shots this afternoon and I can’t wait for Sunday afternoon as the waves are meant to be huge, so guess where I’ll be Sunday afternoon! 🙂
I hope you guys like this photo, as far as I’m concerned this one is definitely going straight into the pool room.
PS – Mark I think the pressure is off now.
Don’t you just love an awesome sunset in winter? The colours are still quite strong though not always as intense as summer and the water is always so moody. I managed to capture this shot at North Cottesloe which if you haven’t discovered it yet is an amazing place for seascape photography. There is normally heaps of interesting rocks and plenty of waves hitting them as well. The other great thing about North Cottesloe is that the waves rarely make it past the rocks so you don’t tend to get too wet when taking photos here.
I remember last winter when I was taking shots at Bennion Beach. It was in the middle of winter and I was taking photos when a rouge wave came thumping through. I just managed to grab my tripod and hold it above my head before it hit me. The wave was that strong I lost one of my thongs. It was so funny, all these people were looking at me when I got back up to the carpark. I was drenched from my waist down on a cold day with only one thong on! I did eventually manage to get the other thong back.
What’s the worst thing you guys have lost while shooting? Hope everyone has a great week this week!
