Actually there is no bad news, only good news. A few months back the Utah Museum of Natural History contacted me as they wanted to use this image in one of their permanent displays. I agreed of course and its good to know that after delivering the photo to them last week, it should be on display shortly for the many thousands of people who go there each year.
This is another shot that I managed to get while tearing around in the Lancelin sand dunes the other night. Beau and I were driving along in between some dunes when this scene opened up in front of us. It caught our attention because of the simple composition that it presented, needless to say we both jumped out of the car and started to shoot away. When you see shots like this appear in front of you, you just know that we landscape photographers have the best job in the world. We had to use a number of light sources to get this shot as Mark Stothard didn’t leave any moonlight behind for us from his visit up there a few nights ago. (Since posting this, I have lightened up the top left hand corner and it looks stacks better).
Hope everyone has a great long weekend!
Australian Landscape Photographer
Okay I’m being a visual artist here rather than a landscape photographer. When I took this shoot I wanted the lines in the Lancelin sand dunes to point up to the sky. Now I managed to get a shot that achieved that effect but the more I looked at this photo the more I thought there was something more to it. It finally came to me and I spun it upside down and then instantly it made me feel like I was falling off the face of the earth.
I’ll post the actual landscape photograph shortly but I really liked this photo and wanted to share it with you guys.
Its another weekend, time to get out there and shoot like crazy! This photo was taken about two years ago and I’ve never really done much with it, however, with a few of the guys doing some black and white photos I thought I’d join the club. Its so much fun shooting the sand dunes at Lancelin, they are forever changing and you always come back with something different.
When I took this photo it was blowing a gale as usual and I had to wait for a lull in the wind before rushing out of the car and setting up a shot. I must have lost at least 5 kilos that day hopping out of the car and running up the dunes to setup for a shot and then run down the dune back into the car again. Still it was heaps of fun.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
On Saturday I decided to take a drive up to the Lancelin Sand Dunes in the trusty Honda CRV. Yes it can handle the dunes! I really only got to spend 10mins up in the dunes as the wind was blowing that hard that I just got completely covered in sand. It took me two days to wash all of the sand out of my hair, fortunately I had my trusty coles shopping bag over the camera to protect it. Straight after this shot I headed down to the beach where I was able to find some cover and grab a few shots of the sunset. It was so relaxing up there I could’ve easily just pulled up a swag and slept on the beach for the night. Its not something I’ve done for ages and I really should do it again.
I’m really taken by this shot, I just love the complexity of it. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do. Merv I might have to come out to your place and setup a tent for the night and ‘pretend’ to camp. 😉
