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,
Miles and miles of ocean. I love it. This is the most enjoyable form of photography for me. Flemming has his wide open spaces and me? I’m addicted to the Ocean, distant, desolate beaches with just me and the ocean. Nothing more to say. 🙂
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.
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.

Its really rare for me to post an unedited landscape photograph but I just couldn’t help myself with this one. I was down at Cottesloe Beach when it was 43 degrees and it was stinking hot! It took me 10mins to get to the beach as I couldn’t park near Cottesloe as all the car parks were full.
This is a 10 stitch image of Cottesloe Beach. If I didn’t have all my camera gear with me I would definetely have just jumped into the water myself. Any way back to processing the image.
Thanks for stopping by and commenting everyone!
I hope you’re all having a great 2010 so far! This is a shot of some rocks that I managed to capture down at Sugar Loaf Rock. To get to it you had to first summon up the courage to step out of the car and face the onslaught of flies. Then you had to get your gear out whilst battling the army of vicious Ninja flies that were determined to make there way into either your eyes, mouth, nose or ears. It was then just a simple matter of heading down the path with a torch because the cloud of flies above you was so thick that it was blocking out the sunlight.
Though the flies were terrible in Dunsborough and Yallingup this year the weather conditions were a landscape photographers dream. We had really nice cloud with hot and humid conditions that produced some really nice effects. This summer has certainly been a lot more exciting photography wise that last year. Let’s hope it stays like this.
