Cottesloe Beach @ 43 Degrees

Hi Everyone,

Its really rare for me to post an unedited landscape photograph but I just couldn’t help myself with this one.   I was down at Cottesloe Beach when it was 43 degrees and it was stinking hot!   It took me 10mins to get to the beach as I couldn’t park near Cottesloe as all the car parks were full.

This is a 10 stitch image of Cottesloe Beach.   If I didn’t have all my camera gear with me I would definetely have just jumped into the water myself.   Any way back to processing the image.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting everyone!

      I think my favourite would be Coral Bay, but if we are just talking about Perth metro area then I’d settle for Cottesloe.

    Hi Mark,

    Nice one, I think 43 is to hot for the beach, looks like theres quite alot of people there. I also noticed there are a few amputees in the water and some people that have managed to loos half their body. haha I know you havent processed it yet.

      Yeah 43 degrees was way too hot to be down there. I should’ve been at a bar somewhere with a Corona!

    Nice shot Jamie.

    What I love about Perth beaches is that even when they’re full there’se still plenty of space. Not like the beaches in England where full means literally no space on the sand as far as the eye can see.

    Makes me want to go back to Broome and have a beach all to myself.

      Hi Dave,

      Thanks for that mate. You’re right about Perth beaches not being that packed. Try getting onto Bondi Beach on a hot day.

    Your tongue must’ve been hanging out Jamie (with the heat I mean). About time you got yourself an assistant to carry the gear, act as security guard, make sure the beer is cold – all that stuff!

    I’s a nice shot and conveys the atmosphere well.

      Hi Muzz,

      Of course my tongue was hanging out because of the heat. What else would make it do that? 😉

    Trouble with assistants is that they either cost alot or they think they deserve the beer and dip in the ocean more than you do.

    Maybe wives don’t always make the best assistants …

    Hey Jamie get the clone tool out mate
    Also nice tulip, like the composition, natural frame is very effective.
    I have a few new posts up, check them out when you have a moment Cheers Adrian

    when you edit this Jamie make sure you adjust your white balance there is too much yellow in it, that sand should be white. Also the water should be bluer, not Eagle Bay blue but a soert of dirty Perth blue. Ok that was a cheap shot at how our beaches in Dunsie are so much better!!
    Enjoy Tassie mate.

      Hi Christian,

      Thank you very much for the advice. I will do so. I’m sure Esperance people say the same thing about Dunsborough beaches! I hope you and the rest of the crew have a great time onboard True North. I’ll talk to you when I get back!
