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.
Seems like today is the day for posting with Christian and Mark competing for the most amount of posts put up in an hour! This photo was from last Saturday. What do you do when its pouring with rain? Head down to the beach of course. To get this shot I quite literally had to find a big rock to hide behind and duck out and setup and then shoot in between rain squalls. I’d usually get a couple of minutes between each rain shower, you could just see the wall of rain coming screaming across the water and you’d have about 30 seconds before it hit and hit hard.
After this shot I decided to head back to the car and get home and stand in front of the heater to thaw out. Hope you guys enjoy it. All comments appreciated.
I got the opportunity to head down south for Friday night so I took it with both arms open. I decided I was going to head out to Cape Naturaliste and I made it just before sunset and with only minutes to spare. So I had to quite literally sprint down the track and down the limestone cliffs to get to this beach. It must have been pretty funny to watch, I’m not exactly the worlds greatest runner!
After catching my breath I decided to try and capture the big waves that were thumping through in the background with these rocks in the foreground. The waves were just huge and breathtaking to watch. After all the shooting it was off to Mike Fletcher’s house to feast on an amazing Thai Beef salad that his wife Ali cooked up for us. Delicious!
Hope you guys enjoy the shot.
Its been a tough week at work and on Friday afternoon I decided to head out for a shoot at late notice. I wanted to shoot somewhere that was new but not too far from home. I remember that Mr ‘Stirling Stephen Williams Ranges’ shot a jetty near my house so I decided to head over there quickly and fire off a few shots to see what I could come up with. I was surprised that after living near the Canning River all my life I’d never seen this jetty.
Aperture – F22
ISO – 50
Shutter – 5secs
I hope you guys enjoy the photo. It was certainly nice taking the photo and watching the sunset. The only thing missing was a beer in my hand!!!
This is a seascape photo I managed to grab a couple of weeks ago from Burns Beach its a place I’m starting to look at more closely as there are heaps of rock formations around. Yes there is heaps to photography in Perth but I have to admit I’m getting restless and hanging out to head down south again to Fletcher territory to get some awesome shots. Well off to try and get some more shots. Let’s hope the breeze doesn’t pick up and blow all these great clouds away!
Hope you all had a great weekend. Is everyone back from Karijini yet? I decided to get out and about this morning to new territory and hit Burns Beach. Mornings like this morning are always good fun, its not too cold and the waves are big enough to create interest but not big enough to completely soak you. I’ll definitely be heading back there when its low tide to cover it a bit better.
Melissa and I are still waiting for son No 2 to arrive sometime over the next couple of weeks.
Thanks for reading,
Esperance, what an amazing place for a landscape photographer to head to. I can’t wait to get back down there and spend some real time getting photos there. Esperance has everything in such close proximity to each other. You spend one morning down at Lucky Bay shooting beach scenes and then that night spend the evening shooting rocky coastly scenes. Next time I’m down there I’d really like to head East a bit more and check out Cape Arid National Park, it looks like there are some really cool sand dunes, shipwrecks and other interesting features to capture down there.
I managed to capture this shot after trying to capture Hellfie Bay in the morning light but I just wasn’t happy with what I was getting so I moved around the corner and saw this view before me. My eyes lit up when I saw this and I started to snap away. It just goes to show that you should never give up. If you aren’t capturing what you want, stop and think about what is available to you and what can work for you and try shooting that instead.
If all else fails try just the old ‘turn around and look behind you trick’ how many of you have tried that and have it work for you?
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend,
