Cottesloe Beach Hues

On Sunday I was checking out the awesome clouds and thought there was no way that I could miss out on that action.  I headed out to Cottesloe Beach to see what sort of photos I could get.  It became really evident as sunset was arriving that all the clouds above Cottesloe were very qucikly burning off, which was a real shame as the clouds 30mins previously were just amazing.

Fortunately, I had checked out these rocks out about an hour before sunset and they had looked pretty cool, so I quickly scrambled down to them and started to snap away.  In hindsight I’m actually pretty glad I was forced into this location as I’m really pleased with the way the shot turned out.   Hopefully you guys do as well.

Let me know what you think,
Thanks,

Bluff Knoll Bonanza

stirling ranges, national park, bluff knoll, australian photographer, landscape photography

What can I say?  This is the only time that I have ever seen clouds at Bluff Knoll (I did see 5mins worth of cloud with Mark but it was very fleeting).   It seems like ever time I head on down there they disappear for days.

I think I’d almost guarantee that if went down there in the middle of winter it would be cloudless!

Anyway on this particular morning I got very lucky and the sunrise was really intense and bathed the entire area in a beautiful orange glow.  It was sensational.

Cottesloe Beach Blur

Last Friday afternoon it was really windy and blustery but I thought I would head out to Cottesloe Beach anyway and see what I could come up with.   I decided to use the good old Lee Big Stopper to try and add some drama to the image as it was still early afternoon.   As you would expect there was virtually no one on the beach as it was just so cold.

I know its not your typical Cottesloe Beach photo with lots of blue sky and people running around everywhere but I really wanted one that showed how dramatic and empty this place can be during winter.  I think I passed the challenge, hopefully you guys do as well.

Thanks,

Cable Beach Reflections

cable beach, broome photos, sunset,

Funnily enough this would have to be one of my most favourite photos of the year so far.  Why?

Well because even though its not an intense sunset I can really relate to it because of the two ladies standing there staring out at the sunset.   I see in them the feelings that I would feel if I was standing there right now.   I was going to remove me them, but because they are there its easier to relive the feelings of an amazing Broome sunset.

Seeing them there invokes within me the feelings of contentment, amazement and joy.  Would you have left them in the photo as well?

I hope you guys enjoy the photo.   I’d love to hear your comments on it.

Thanks,

Jamie


Fusion

perth, western australia, seascape photography, long exposure, landscape photography

I love this photo, its like I was capturing the melting pot of the elements, sky, Earth and water.  It was taken a couple of weeks back while strolling along Burns Beach.

The waves were really cranking and it was raining heaps as well so I got soaked and was constantly having to wipe the filters clean of any spray and rain.  A double whammy!

As they say with perseverance comes reward so I’m glad I toughed it out in the end, you can always get dry but you can’t always get the same shot again.

Thanks,

Hanalei Bay

hawaii, landscape photography, seascape photography, hawaiian photos

I absolutely loved Hanalei Bay when I was staying in Kauai.  It just had an amazing village feel to it and everyone really was so relaxed.   Surfers would drive on to this beach and turn right and drive for 200M and then hop out of their cars and hit a really amazing wave about 250M offshore.

Families would have their huge pickup trucks on the beach with loud reggae music blasting out from their speakers and the Dads would have the BBQs all fired up.   The evenings were just magical in this bay.  The Hawaiians couldn’t believe I was walking around in shorts on a cold 24 degree day!   They were wearing jeans to keep themselves warm.

I hope you guys enjoy this photo.

Thanks,

Crystal Clear Waters

When I first saw this bay I fell in love with it straight away.  I just couldn’t get enough of that amazing clear water.  How beautiful does it look from up on the hill?

Unfortunately, on this particular day I was really pressed for time so I didn’t get a chance to dive right in, but if I get the chance to I will next time for sure.

This one was of those rare occasions where I actually used a polarizer and looking back on it I’m glad I did.    Now…. onto the next image!

Thanks,
