Reflections

seascape photography, port beach, perth

Recently, I saw a series of posts from True North Mark featuring reflections and it inspired me to head out and capture some of my own.  I’ve always liked the way clouds appear on the sand whilst its wet from the waves washing up on it, so I captured them.

Its always fun getting down to the beach and this was no different.  We really are amazingly lucking in Perth to have access to beaches like this.

North Cottesloe Drama

Hi Everyone,

Is there anything better than a nice dramatic sunset with the beach to yourself to unwind and reflect on what’s happened throughout the week.  There might be but it certainly didn’t feel like it at the time.

Cable Beach Reflections

Cable Beach Reflections::  Cable Beach would have to be another firm favourite in places to visit.   It is quite simply amazing to watch the end of the day on this beach.   As the warm tropical sun sets it nearly always throws up a beautiful kaleidoscope of colours each and every evening.

I was lucky enough on this evening to be walking along Cable Beach just relaxing when I saw the water the reflecting the clouds and I had to capture it.  I’m glad that I did and working on it brings back great memories of that evening.

Thanks,

Jamie

Ke’e Beach Sunset Kauai

This is Ke’e Beach in Kauai.  Its right at the beginning of the Na Pali coast and its divine.   This beach is as far as you can get to by car on the North Shore of Kauai and it really does feel like you’re at the end of the road.  It’s quite, serene and relaxing with everyone just sitting by the foreshore watching the sun setting and contemplating their lives.

Quite a few times after the sun has set I’ve stayed behind and jumped in the water and just floated in the water, soaking up the zero gravity feeling in such an amazing place.  I’m sure I could go here for the rest of my life and never get sick of it.

Do you have a place like that at all?  One that you can keep returning to and never get bored of it?

Thanks,

Jamie

Little Salmon Bay Rottnest

Little Salmon Bay Rottnest::  After spending time with the family all week, it was definitely time to sneak off by myself to get some solitude and quiet time with Mother Nature.

I was really attracted to this spot, Little Salmon Bay because of the bright green patches in the water.  It was like patch work quilt.   I spent about 2hrs in this little bay, shooting away and then it was time to put my camera down and just enjoy the place.

I sat down on the beach and felt the gentle winter sun heating me up.  I then just shut my eyes and listened, really listened to everything that was going on around me.

From the waves lapping at the beach, to the sound the wind made as scurried across the beach.  It was a truly relaxing experience.

Do you ever take time out to just listen to Mother Nature?

Thanks,

Jamie

Ocean Reflections

It’s rare to get water conditions like this out in the ocean.  Its nearly always rougher than this with the wind, swell and waves always manipulating the surface of it.  So on this particular morning as we were heading out to the Gulf of Mexico channel on a small boat I got pretty excited.

The ocean as you can see was extremely flat and we were getting all these amazing cloud reflections in the water.  I just went snap happy and filled up almost a full card not bad considering we were only out there for three hours!

Have you ever seen the ocean like this?

Thanks,

Jamie

North Cotteloe Sunset

Last Friday night I was fortunate enough to catch up with fellow photographers True North Mark, Peta- Anne North and Greg Ratajcak at North Cottesloe Beach. As always the conditions were fantastic.

The sun cast a stunning golden glow over everything and stayed for ages as you can see in the photo. It was such a magical evening.

When was the last time you saw a sunset like this?

Thanks,

Jamie

Hawaii Waters

This photo was taken on the last day of my last trip to Hawaii, how amazingly clear is the water?   It was a really special day as I’ve been to Hawaii quite a few times but this was only the second time my wife had been there with me and her first trip there with me was almost 10yrs ago.

We spent six days together investigating little bays like this all over the island of Kauai and just jumping into the water whenever we could.  The trip finished all too quickly as they do but we got to see and shoot so much during that time.

I cant wait to get back there again!

Thanks,

Jamie

North Cottesloe Beach Sunset

Autumn Awesome::

I headed out on Friday evening to let Mother Nature show me what she’s got.  Little did I know that less than 15M away were two other fantastic landscape photographers,  True North Mark and Tristan Jud were just on the otherside of the reef shooting the same sunset.

Its a small world.  The best colour actually happened just before sunset, it seemed like the sun literally burst into a deep orange just before it ducked below the horizon.  Sensational and a great way to end the day. :-)

Did you all have a great weekend?

Lumaihai Beach South Pacific

In this amazing world I have two spiritual homes.  One is here in Western Australia, at Injidup Beach down near Yallingup and the other is Lumahai Beach in Kaui and I just love to photograph both of them.   They’re both very similar, very uncrowded wide open to ocean swells and to me they contain an element of spiritual healing.  Both of them totally inspire me to concentrate on my seascape photography.

I can sit down at either one of these beaches and instantly my cares fade away and its just me and the ocean.  In fact I have spent hours at both beaches just relaxing without even picking up the camera, which I think is important.   The more time you can spend at a place and learn about its character and quirks the better photos you’ll manage to capture of it.

We should all have a place that inspires us and moves us, one that when we have a photographers block it reignites our passion for our art.  One that we can easily close our eyes and see ourselves there, and feel the sand squishing between our toes, while the wind gently touches our face.  If you learn about a places moods then its so much easier to notice all the finer details of the place that others will miss and you’ll start to capture photos of it, that others just don’t see.

So where is your favourite place to shoot?  One that totally inspires you when other places don’t?   One that is like visiting an age old friend who always brings a smile to your face.  Let me know!

Thanks,

Jamie
