Its been ages since I’ve been down south and I was trawling through my down south images today when I came across this photo of Boronup Forest that I took whilst out with Mark Stothard last year. I’ve tried doing a few different techniques to it and I quite like the way it turned out.
Hope you guys do to.
Another shot of Injidup Beach! What more can I say about the place other than I love it and its magical. On this particular evening the waves were just gently lapping at the beach instead of being hammered by the large waves that normally come through here like a freight train.
Just on the other side of the rocks were a large group of kids jumping into the water and swimming and splashing around, just having a great time. Its good to see that I’m not the only one who recharges at Injidup.
I can’t wait to get down here during winter to capture some winter storms.
Now that the exhibition is over I have a bit more time to relax and head out and starting taking photos again. It seems like ages since I last headed out on a photography adventure. Now before I tell you about this photo please make sure you go and check out Andrea Green’s new blog and say hi.
This shot was taken August last year just as the sun was breaking. There had been stacks of rain and I hadn’t managed to really pull off any shots at all so I decided to head over to my spiritual home Injidup Beach because it almost always delivers. Well I definitely wasn’t disappointed, as the sun began to rise I was presented with this awesome stormy scene and the wet rocks were throwing up a great red. The 1Ds copped an absolute soaking on this day and it still managed to deliver.
I really think its time to take a trip back down south soon and check out a few new areas that I managed to scout out just before Christmas and soak up the whole South West atmosphere again. This photo was taken using F11, ISO50 with a 20sec exposure.
Have a great long weekend everyone,
Why is it that just standing in front of the ocean watching waves crash onto rocks is so calming? Why is it so thought provoking? Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
Why do people feel so clean internally not just externally when they dive into the ocean?
The ocean, it really is a magic, mysterious entity. Will I ever understand it?
Hope everyone had a great weekend, you can tell you live in a small city when everyone turns out to see a cruise ship turning up to Fremantle. We were lucky enough to have the Queen Mary 2 turn up today for a few hours. If you want to see some photos check out Clint Baker’s website.
This is another photo from my trip down south a few weeks ago. By this stage the moon had risen and the mossies were trying to carry me off to where ever they come from. Still I didn’t mind them too much as this place was just a photographic goldmine. I stayed around for an hour after the sunset which meant I got some great photos but I unfortunately got lost on the way back to the carpark.
I climbed up the sand dunes that the surfers had and it was all good until I got to the top of the dunes. The tracks just seemed to disappear and not lead to anywhere. I had to start walking through the bush and it was really hot so I imagined there would be plenty of tiger snakes and dugites prowling looking for a meal and I was hoping that I didn’t step on one! Fortunately I didn’t and I made it back to the car safely!
Thanks for checking my blog out and commenting,
This was a shot I that I managed to grab around three months ago now whilst I was spending quite a bit of time out at Bunker Bay. As you can see I managed to narrowly avoid a stack of rain heading across the bay. In fact it was taken the day before I got totally rained out when I headed for a shoot at Meelup Beach.
I just really liked this shot because I thought that the tree dangling over the water was pretty cool. It really made me wonder why a tree would grow that way rather than just straight up in the air. That is the great thing about Mother Nature I guess, she is always creating interesting things for us landscape and seascape photographers.
Now that Summer is here I can’t wait for those amazing sunsets to kick in. What about everyone else? You guys hanging out for those amazing summer sunsets as well?
Thanks for dropping in team,
Well when I was down south last weekend I only managed to get up early on the Saturday morning, I just couldn’t struggle out of bed on the Sunday morning no matter how hard I tried. Saturday morning was one of those days that landscape and seascape photographers just live for! I managed to get my previous shot of Meelup Beach and then 30min later this shot of Injidup Beach. As I always say who says landscape photographers aren’t an extreme bunch? I took this photo just before I got covered waist deep in water, I had to literally grab my camera and hold it above my head. At least this time I didn’t lose a thong like I did at Bennion Beach.
What is the closest you’ve come to losing your camera? I think my incident at Bennion Beach was the closest.
Hope you’re all having a great weekend,
