Stranded in Applecross

applecross perth australian landscape photography sunsets

A few weeks ago I was on my way home from work.   I looked across the river from the train and saw this boat lying on the river bank and I thought it was a great subject to try and capture.   I also had a funny feeling that the sunset was going to be fantastic!   Its sunsets like these when its a real privilege to be a landscape photographer, these colours haven’t been saturated in Photoshop in any way, it was definitely an amazing sunset.  We get to capture the moment forever and let people see it time and time again.   Its all good fun!

I hope you guys all managed to capture some great photos over Easter.  What did everyone get up to?

    awesome shot… love the city off in the distance as well. Kind of reminds me of the Broadwater here on the Gold Coast

      Hi Darren,

      Thanks very much for that. I’m pretty stoked that the city turned out like it did as well.

      Hi Graham,

      Thanks for that, I must admit I was pretty excited when I saw that sunset rollout before my eyes. It was almost like summer was saying goodbye.

    Gorgeous colours Jamie – I also love the serenity of the scene you have captured here… It all seems to idyllic for a stranded boat ! 🙂

      Hi Matt,

      I had a great weekend. Thanks for the comments and I’ll check out your blog now.

    Hi Jamie

    It’s a great shot. I live on the 5th floor above where the boat is and took pictures of it all week.

    Your sunset shot is great – I missed that but I am a morning person and shot it several mornings in a row.

    I got a shot the day after the storm with all the strom clouds (

    Great colour combinaion in your shot.

      Hi Rob,

      Thank you very much for the great comments. Your shot is a fantastic shot. I’m definitely not a morning person at the moment. Have you seen that Deepwater Point Jetty is currently damaged and closed off?

    Hey Jamie, what a cracker of a shot. The calm water, foreground image of the boat, and to finish it off the city in the back ground. That is one for a raffles penthouse

    • jamiepatersonphotography April 7, 2010 at 9:31 am #

      Good call Haydn! I should go knocking door to door at the Raffles and see if someone will buy it.
