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,
This is an image I managed to capture a few weeks ago and I’ve been sitting for it for the past couple of weeks trying to work out why it really draws me in. I finally worked it out. It draws me in because its just so simple, yet its still effective. This is another shot that I managed to capture after I was walking away from my original shooting position and was heading back to the car. Maybe my new technique should be to turn up to my spot, unpack and then immediately repack all my stuff and then start heading back to the car. It seems to work for me! 🙂
Hope you guys all like it.
Last week I headed down to North Cottesloe as I just knew that the sunset was going to go off. I’m glad I did as the colours were just awesome, a nice orange glow greeted the end of the day. It almost felt like a mild summer day as people were just strolling up and down the beach, kids were splashing in the water and people were fishing off the rocks. You just have to love days like this one. I was almost tempted to jump into the water, until I felt how cold it was. Which just proves my theory, kids can’t feel cold water!
Did everyone have a good long weekend and get heaps of photos?
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!
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?
I was fortunate enough to duck down south for the weekend and just chill out. In between having lunch with some good friends on Saturday and Melissa and I having the most awesome dinner at the Food Farmacy I managed to catch this shot at Meelup Beach. It was such a magnificient morning and I had the beach all to myself. 🙂 The colours in the water were absolutely amazing, when Meelup Beach has blue water, it has really blue water! Its a landscape and seascape photographers dream. Just think in another two months time this place is going to be plastered with people and almost impossible to photography no matter how early or late you turn up.

What places do you guys normally get to shoot, that will be covered in the summer tourist crowd shortly?
Thanks for stopping by and commenting,
Geez I was all set to have a relaxing weekend but with Merv ‘motivating’ me I’ve had to put up another photo. This photo was taken after watching internationally famed seascape artist Larry Mitchell peering into the water, I stood next to him and saw this in front of me. I absolutely loved the water in the shallows it makes a great effect and I was really happy with this photo. I just goes to show you don’t have to hang out with photographers to learn more about photography. The way Larry ‘saw’ water was amazing and I know Christian learnt from him as well.
I’m thinking that I might have to retire to a coral island somewhere and ‘study’ water for the rest of my life. What do you guys think? I’m not sure if I could keep up with the pressures of work of being a seascape photographer on a coral island. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by everyone,
