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,
Just me tinkering. I’ve been eying off this building off for months and finally I got the right light and opportunity to shoot it.
I’ve just been really attracted to this building as its a little old school and its surrounded by lots of new buildings.
I really have no idea at all why this boat intrigues me so much but it does. I guess she just strikes me as being a really hardworking and honest boat that has worked hard and is now lazing around the Canning River just soaking up the sun. As I mentionined to Mark the other day, I find work boats so much more interesting than pleasure boats. Her name is Zulu and I think she might be an old RAAF work boat but I’m not 100% sure.
In all honesty I think if I knew who owned Zulu I’d probably take her off their hands, that is how much I like her. If you’re the owner and reading the blog let me know.
I’ve only seen her move once in the whole time that she has been on the Canning River which is a shame. I do believe there is another one like her in Freshwater Bay.
Thanks for reading and all comments are appreciated.
I quickly ducked down to North Cottesloe tonight to try and grab a few shots. I wasn’t holding my breath as I didn’t think there would be too much colour around but fortunately I was pleasantly surprised. Hope you all like it. 🙂
Just goes to show if you don’t head out, you won’t get the shot. 🙂
Life Moves Fast – Time To Slow Down
I’ve really enjoyed these past couple of photos because they remind me that time just moves way too fast, and that if we take the time to slow down we can see some really interesting things.
Things that are hidden in our mad rush to get from one place to another as fast as possible, and from trying to fit as many unimportant things in to our lives as possible.
So this weekend, slow down, take a deep breath, have a look around and enjoy yourself.
I figured if Christian can have his altered landscapes then I can have my altered seascapes. On my way down to Pt Perron last weekend I stopped off at lots of little beaches to see what I could find. There really wasn’t any point to this photo other than, Wow, that is a really big ship so close to the shore and it looked kind of cool.
Watch out for more altered seascapes soon.
Hope you’ve all had a great weekend so far. This is a shot that I managed to get whilst out shooting with Mark last week. It was such an intense and magical sunset, in fact probably the best I’ve seen in a long time.
It was one of those sorts of sunsets where I actually stopped shooting for a few minutes so that I could just take time out and enjoy it. One the way home Mark and I stopped off and tried out another location that promises to provide us with a couple of great photos, unfortunately the light wasn’t right on the night but stayed tuned. I’m sure either Mark or I will return there soon to have another crack at it shortly.
Thanks for stopping by guys,
