North Beach

seascape photography, australian photographer, australian landscape photography, beach

Last weekend I manged to head out with Paul Pichugin to North Beach and boy did we have a blast.   This is probably my most favourite photo of the year so far.

Its amazing the sorts of shots you can drag amount for a seemingly small bunch of insignificant rocks if you present them in the right way.

I waited for awhile to get this shot as I want there to be sufficient water in front of the rocks to create some motion, whilst a wave was also crashing onto the rock itself.  As always patience pays off.

I hope you guys enjoy it and I’d love to know what you think of it.

Thanks,

Jamie

Bennion Beach Blaze

Wow, oh Wow!!!!   I came so close to not heading out tonight as I really didn’t think the sunset was going to be any good.  How wrong was I?  I decided to head out anyway to Bennion Beach, its a familiar spot and I feel grounded there.

I was trying out a few new in camera techniques, playing around when I saw the sunset start to really fire up.   Well off to work I went and I was blown away at just how intense, insane and amazing the sunset was.

So glad I went out tonight!

Thanks,

Jamie


Evening Stroll

You and I stroll down the beach,

Together, forever, you’re always within reach.

The water as it ebb and flows,

Reminds me our love always grows.

 


Pristine Green

Wow.  What a crazy year 2012 has been already!   I’ve managed to sell a few photos from the galleries that represent me and I’ve just done a trip to Dallas in Texas which totally blew me away, though I could’ve done without all the time in the air.

This photo was actually taken well over a year ago, and I’m not sure why I’ve sat on it so long as I really like it.   Can anyone guess who it is in the photo?  You know who you are so please don’t let the cat out of the bag. 🙂

Christian was just up the road when we were taking this shot and he wasn’t amused when he saw this shot as he’d never seen this beach like this before.  Woo Hoo.  We managed to CF. 🙂

Thanks,

Jamie


Heavenly Clouds

The other day I’d just walked out of this community hall which was a church after training and I was talking to my instructor.  He asked me what I looked for in a photo and I looked around and pointed up to the roof and said something like that.

I then said my goodbyes and started to walk off.  I’d walked about 20M when I realised that I’d just spotted a really cool shot and hadn’t done anything about it.  In fact I’d even pointed out the shot to someone else and still hadn’t taken the shot.  My head certainly was in the clouds!

I quickly raced to the car, grabbed my camera and ducked back to the hall to ping off a few shots.  I’m really glad that I did.  Its so true that you should always have your camera with you.

Thanks for reading,

Cottesloe Beach Hues

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,
Thanks,

Cable Beach Reflections

cable beach, broome photos, sunset,

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.

Thanks,

Jamie
