Has it really been almost a week since I’ve left Broome? Its been such a crazy and busy week that I still haven’t sat down and looked at all my photos from Broome just yet, but you can bet I will be checking them out this weekend. Its always fun checking out photos from a trip, not only because of the fact that you’ll hopefully be able to create some great images, but also because it helps you reflect on what an amazing place you have just visited.
Cable Beach for me was just so awesome. I could easily spend all Winter up there and just shoot her many moods. It was fun to watch so many people having so much fun and it really did seem to be an integral part of the town, life really seemed to revolve around it.
Anyway, onwards and upwards as they say. Time to start planning even more amazing trips to far away and exotic places. Has anyone else been to Broome?
I couldn’t help myself, another photo from Tasmania. I was driving back from Stanley which is in the North West corner of Tassie back to Cradle Mountain National Park when I saw this scene on the side of the road. I just had to pull over and capture the scene.
The cows being lit up by the sun just caught my eye as did the fence leading up to the tree line. I can’t wait to get back to Tassie again shortly. This time I’ll be spending a lot more time on the East coast capturing photos of the coast.
I’ve been lucky enough to have spent the past four days at Rottnest and its been pure bliss. Sure we had a few fronts come through with lots of rain, but they never lasted long and we pretty much had the island to ourselves. I was staying at the Bathurst villas at Rottnest so it was a short little walk to the Basin for me via Pinky Beach.
On this particular night there was a stack of rain heading my way, it was heading towards the island really slowly so I thought let’s get the camera out and see what happens. As it happens it was a good call and the result was pretty awesome. I managed to grab this shot on the first night and have had to wait for four days to be able to process it. Talk about testing ones patience!
I hope you guys enjoy it,
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 must have lost around 10kgs taking this shot. In fact I almost felt like Peter Lik! I had to run out to this spot, slam my tripod down, get a quick focus in and then fire the shot all before the next wave came thumping through. It was heaps of fun though even if I did cut it a bit fine a few times. This sort of photography certainly makes you feel alive, though there isn’t much room for error. I hope the rest of you got awesome shots this weekend.
Well I was lucky enough to be out and about like Markie Mark and Col of Birds Eye View Photography were on Saturday evening and managed to grab a few shots of the awesome sunset. What a sunset it was, it was so colourful and it just lasted forever, I was shooting for at least 20mins and even had time to sit back and watch the view as well. This place is called Point Walter and on a good day you can actually walk right out into the middle of the Swan River. Pretty cool.
The sunset was that intense I had to use a couple of filters to try and stop it from overpowering the foreground! All in all it was a fantastic evening and hopefully we’ll have another one soon.
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?
