Busselton Jetty

This photo almost never happened.  True North Mark and I were still in Nannup late in the afternoon and trying as best as we could to get to the coast to try and capture sunset.

We really cut this one very close so close in fact that once we drove into the carpark we quite literally leapt out of the car and had to run down to the beach and only had about a minute to decide what angle we wanted to shot from and setup our gear.

I decided to head down to this jetty and see what I could get, while Mark decided it was a great time to combine a 2km run with a sunset shoot.  He was running all over the beach like a man possessed.  Good fun to watch.

Thanks,

Fremantle Last Light

seascape photography, australian landscape photography, australian photographer, coastal photography

I just love the clouds in this shot it reminds me of the photo I took in Broome recently.    Really complex with lots of interesting patterns in them.

The waves were pretty cool as well.  I came so close to not heading out on this particular afternoon and staying home.  Just goes to show if you aren’t out and about you’ll miss out.

Hope you guys enjoy it.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson


Calm

Hi Everyone,

Yes its another shot of North Cottesloe!   I guess it just goes to how diverse and different this place can be if you take the time to get to know it.   I like this shot as it seems really calming and relaxing which is exactly how North Cottesloe makes me feel when I’m there.

I can’t believe the weekend is pretty much over.  Bring on the new week!

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

 


Cable Beach Drama

Now this is what I call drama!   On our second last day up at Cable Beach we knew that a storm was coming in and that it was going to be a big one.   Well the weather guys got it right, it was a big storm but the best thing about it was that it took hours to build.  So we had plenty of time to capture it before heading inside to escape the rains.

It was a fantastic feeling just standing there on the beach watching it build up, knowing there was little we could do but stand there and watch in amazement.

I’d love to head up there just before Cyclone season to capture more of these sorts of shots but I certainly wouldn’t want to be there during a cyclone!

I hope you enjoy it,

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson


More Wave Sliding

The other day I headed down to Trigg Beach to get some more photos of the surfers cutting up the waves.  I wanted to try and emulate a pervious shot I had done of a surfer at Trigg Beach but I’m pretty sure I’ve managed to do a better job this time.   I wanted to the surfer to less blurry than he was last time, so I upped the shutter speed and I was a lot happier with the result.   Both the surfer and the waves are a little more defined which sits well with me.

Again with this shot I find myself focusing more on the motion and emotion of the surfer and the wave than on all the details of the photo itself. I can feel the strength of the wave and the freedom the surfer gets from riding it.  I think I’ll keep tinkering with this style of surf photography for a little while longer yet.

Thanks,

Shallow Depths

Hi Everyone,

I took this photo down at Point Perron a few months ago now.   I’ve always been one to just stare at the ocean, when I was little kid, when I was in the Navy and even in this present day I could literally just stare at the ocean for hours.  I don’t really know why but it holds so much meaning for me, it has always had a strong pull on me and my life.

I just love this shot as it reminds me of what I see when I stare into the ocean.   Colour, movement, each little movement of the water tells a story.   Every wave is different and will never be repeated again.

Its time to head off and plan my next ocean adventure.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Hi Everyone,

I hope you have a great start to 2011.  I hope you’ve set some fantastic goals for 2011 and that you obtain them all.   For me I’ve got three really big trips on next year and I have a few other really big plans as well so I’m really excited.

I hope I get to catch up with all of you in the new year.

Stay safe crew,

Jamie Paterson
