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.

Thanks,

Starfish Beach

seascape photography, fremantle, australian photographer, sunset

Hi Everyone,

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.

Thanks,

North Cottesloe Last Light

australian photographer, seascape photography, australian landscapes, north cottesloe, australian landscape photography

Well its no secret that North Cottesloe is my metro version of Injidup Beach.   No matter how many times I think I’m going to shoot somewhere else I nearly always end up here.  Not sure why, there are plenty of other great beaches, but this one just has the ‘x factor’ for me.

Great little waves, great rocks and quite often I can get really close to the action without getting too wet, which I like to do.

This is a really simple composition but as we are all learning, quite often less is more.   I hope you all enjoy it.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Shallow Depths

point perron, australian landscape photography, seascape photography, landscape photography, nature photography

Hi Everyone,

I took this photo down at Point Perron a few months ago now.   I’ve always been one to just stare at the ocean, when I was little kid, when I was in the Navy and even in this present day I could literally just stare at the ocean for hours.  I don’t really know why but it holds so much meaning for me, it has always had a strong pull on me and my life.

I just love this shot as it reminds me of what I see when I stare into the ocean.   Colour, movement, each little movement of the water tells a story.   Every wave is different and will never be repeated again.

Its time to head off and plan my next ocean adventure.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Altered Seascapes

seascapes, seascape photography, australian landscape photography, ships,

Hi Everyone,

I figured if Christian can have his altered landscapes then I can have my altered seascapes.  On my way down to Pt Perron last weekend I stopped off at lots of little beaches to see what I could find.   There really wasn’t any point to this photo other than, Wow, that is a really big ship so close to the shore and it looked kind of cool.

Watch out for more altered seascapes soon.

I promise this will be my last photo of Injidup Beach for awhile!   It just blows me away that within a few minutes and within a few meters of the same spot I was able to capture a number of distinctly different moods from this place.

I hope you guys all have a great weekend.

Stationary Motion

mandurah, sunsets, beach, australian landscape photography, australian landscape photographers

Hi Everyone,

For me there is just nothing like standing there and watching the ocean move around stationary objects.   It looks like the ocean isn’t doing the rocks or other things any damage but we all know that the ocean always wins.  Every time!   Its also just so relaxing listening to the waves crashing onto the rocks and then listening to it sliding back off the beach.   I could seriously watch and listen to that same motion all day long.

In Sydney I used to live right on the beach and it was great being able to leave the windows open each night and let the ocean sing me to sleep.  I remember that I used to sleep so deeply each night.   In the Navy the ocean used to rock me to sleep all night though in the Southern Ocean she could be a bit rude and would throw me out of bed when I least expected it.

So where am I going with all this?   Its simple, I’m just obsessed by the ocean.  I hope you guys enjoy the photo.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Seascape Photography Meetup – 02 Oct 2010

seascape photography

Hi Everyone,

If anyone is interested in meeting up for a seascape photography shoot I certainly am.   I’m heading down to Mandurah next Saturday 02 October 2010 at 5pm.    I’ve included a map in this post to show you one of the two locations that I’ll be at.  Look under the map and you’ll see a link saying ‘view larger map’.  You’re probably better off clicking on that to see a better map and on the left hand side you can see the two locations I maybe at.   The first one is my primary location but if the tide is too high, I’ll be heading over to the alternate location, suffice to say I’ll be at one of the two spots for sure.

It would be fantastic to catch up with any fellow seascape photographers to have a chat and swap ideas as well as just getting some great photos.   So who is in?

Cottesloe Beach

Hi Crew,

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend.   Have I jumped on the black and white bandwagon with this shot?  Certainly not!   I see things in colour and in the past have converted the odd photo to black and white when the composition and light was good but the colour wasn’t.

In this case though I always saw this Cottesloe Beach shot in black and white for some reason, perhaps its because of Brett Morgan’s latest photos.  Either way I’m glad I saw this one in black and white as it really works.  Now should I rock Mark’s boat and do a third post for the day?  I think so.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Miles and Miles

seascapes, australian seascape photography, australian landscape photography

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. :-)

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson
