Broome Fireworks

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?

Thanks,

Hills of Light

Hi Everyone,

About six weeks ago I did a quick run down to Balingup and then Nannup as I’d been really keen to discover the Balingup to Nannup Rd.

It was as if I was in a landscape photographer’s heaven with scenes like this presenting themselves every couple of minutes down the road.  I believe normally it only takes about 20mins to traverse the road but it took me 2.5hrs as I had to keep getting out and capturing the magic.

This was an 8 image stitch using my 50mm lens and then stitched together using PTGUI.

If you ever get the chance to drive down this road, make sure you do.  You won’t regret it.  I’d love to hear your comments on this photo.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

 


Happier Times

landscape photography, australian landscape photography,

Whilst on our travels down south True North Mark and I came across this pretty cool old house.   Of course we hopped out straight away and headed over to it and started to capture as best we could.   I was actually really inspired by this old house.

I always wonder why people left houses like this as they were.  We they desperate and had no other choice?  Who knows?

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson


City Building

Hi Everyone,

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.

Hopes and Dreams

Hi Everyone,

Quite sometime ago I went out on a shoot with True North Mark and Matthew Saul and we headed out to Toodyay.    It was a pretty cool afternoon and we spent a few hours driving down back roads.

We happened across this house and to be honest I found it a really depressing place and never really did anything with the photo.  However, the past few days I’ve been drawn back to this photo and I thought, why not try and express how this place made me feel?

Well this is my attempt at doing that and I think its captured my feeling really well.   I hope you guys feel it as well.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson


The Majesty Of Boats

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.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

 


North Cottesloe Awash

Hey Guys,

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. 🙂

Thanks,

Jamie
