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,
Funnily enough this would have to be one of my most favourite photos of the year so far. Why?
Well because even though its not an intense sunset I can really relate to it because of the two ladies standing there staring out at the sunset. I see in them the feelings that I would feel if I was standing there right now. I was going to remove me them, but because they are there its easier to relive the feelings of an amazing Broome sunset.
Seeing them there invokes within me the feelings of contentment, amazement and joy. Would you have left them in the photo as well?
I hope you guys enjoy the photo. I’d love to hear your comments on it.
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.
I wish I was here right now! Nice and warm with a nice cold beverage of some description in my hand. When I took this photo it was a nice 28 degrees with not much humidity.
I must head back up to Broome again soon. I wonder what sort of sunsets it gets during summer.
To get this shot I used the 17mm TSE lens which is just pure magic and I blended a couple of photos together in Photoshop using some photos that had been taken at two different exposures. One for the sky and one for the foreground. I think it worked do you?
I just love the clouds in this shot it reminds me of the photo I took in Broome recently. Really complex with lots of interesting patterns in them.
The waves were pretty cool as well. I came so close to not heading out on this particular afternoon and staying home. Just goes to show if you aren’t out and about you’ll miss out.
Hope you guys enjoy it.
Well I guess a lot of you will be up at the Avon Descent getting some amazing shots from one of the best Avon Descents in years. Can’t wait to see them.
I saw a nice little front building up mid afternoon so I decided to head down to the coast and grab some photos at sunset. I’m glad I did, there wasn’t a lot of colour but it was really moody and lasted for ages.
Though this photo is called starfish beach (because of the two starfish in the bottom of the frame), it felt more like a starfish cemetery, there were literally hundreds of them all washed up on the beach. I guess the recent storms have thrown them all up on the beach.
Its sad to see but I guess that is the cycle of nature. If you’d like to see more seascape photography please visit my site.
North Cottesloe has to be one of the best and most interesting metro beaches to shoot, its always so much fun being down there. In this shot I tried following the movement of the wave whilst also getting some detail in the shot and I’m pretty happy with the result.
To get this shot I held the shutter open for about 2secs and then panned from right to left to capture the waves movement I did that for about 1.5secs and then for the last .5sec just kept the camera still so that the camera would record some of the detail and not totally blur it all. I’ve being trying to work on a compromise between totally blurred and totally sharp so that the viewer focuses on the movement and emotion within the photo but can still see where the photo was taken.
I think this photo manages to achieve that.
Hope you enjoy it,
