Evening Stroll

You and I stroll down the beach,

Together, forever, you’re always within reach.

The water as it ebb and flows,

Reminds me our love always grows.

Summer Days

Don’t you just love Summer days like these?   When its been hot and humid all day and you just know that you’re going to see an amazing sunset?

I think we all do and of course the best thing about days like these are taking a quick dip in the water once the sun has set to cool down.   I could spend hours down at the beach in the evenings just chilling out.

What about you?  What is your favourite thing to do on a hot summer evening?   After you’ve taken your photos of course.

Thanks,

Warmth

Hi Everyone,

I just love this photo purely for the fact that it just radiates warmth.  You can just feel it oozing out of the photo.  There is nothing like the Australian bush.

I hope you guys all managed to get out and about and capture some amazing shots this weekend.

Thanks,

Jamie

 


Smiths Beach

Hi Everyone,

A few months ago I was down south just walking along Smiths Beach when I came across this scene before me.  It was just a nice secluded part of the world to be in, so of course I had to try and capture it.

I was trying to time it so that I would capture a wave just before it smashed into the rocks so I’m pretty stoked with this shot.

The unusual clouds are what really drew me to this shot.  I hope you guys enjoy it as well.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson


Heavenly Clouds

The other day I’d just walked out of this community hall which was a church after training and I was talking to my instructor.  He asked me what I looked for in a photo and I looked around and pointed up to the roof and said something like that.

I then said my goodbyes and started to walk off.  I’d walked about 20M when I realised that I’d just spotted a really cool shot and hadn’t done anything about it.  In fact I’d even pointed out the shot to someone else and still hadn’t taken the shot.  My head certainly was in the clouds!

I quickly raced to the car, grabbed my camera and ducked back to the hall to ping off a few shots.  I’m really glad that I did.  Its so true that you should always have your camera with you.

Thanks for reading,

Dinosaur Eye

I got to admit I really love this shot.  I managed to capture it a few months ago from a helicopter at about 1500ft when I was on my trip up North with some VIPs.  It was taken about 100kms south of Karratha along the coast line.

The half moon orange green object is actually a mini island and the red above it is the actual coast.  Most of the white is dried up salt.  It all adds up to a pretty cool image if I do say so myself.

So why the title Dinosaur Eye?   There were quite a few people on my Facebook Page who thought it looked like a dinosaur eye and after checking it out I have to agree with them.

I’d love to hear your comments on the photo.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson


Hot Air Ballooning

 

This morning at 3am I headed off to the Avon Valley and Northam to go hot air ballooning.  I was really excited to be going in a hot air balloon as I’d heard so many good things about them.  Well I’m hear to let you know that all the great comments about them are true.

They make a fantastic photography platform as you can lean over, shoot straight down, they are incredibly stable and move quite slowly over the landscape making it easy to get sharp photos in low light.  If you haven’t jumped in one consider giving it a go.

What really surprised me was how quickly they can climb when you get a couple of the burners going full blast.  We shot up to 3600ft in a matter of minutes when they cranked up the heat.

Could We Get Any Lower Into Town?

Seriously, I thought these guys were about to stop into Merv or Pete’s house for a quick coffee and chat!

The Northam Palace:

Check it out its almost like we are drifting down the street just out of reach of a normal person’s reach.  At one stage we were actually talking to some people on the ground.  So cool.

Time To Land:

All good things must come to an end.  We slowly drifted across the Great Eastern Highway and landed in a paddock just past the highway.  It was a thrill and awesome and I’ll certainly be doing it again.
