Lancelin Sand Dunes

lancelin sand dunes australian landscape photography jamie paterson

Hi Crew,

Its another weekend, time to get out there and shoot like crazy!    This photo was taken about two years ago and I’ve never really done much with it, however, with a few of the guys doing some black and white photos I thought I’d join the club.    Its so much fun shooting the sand dunes at Lancelin, they are forever changing and you always come back with something different.

When I took this photo it was blowing a gale as usual and I had to wait for a lull in the wind before rushing out of the car and setting up a shot.   I must have lost at least 5 kilos that day hopping out of the car and running up the dunes to setup for a shot and then run down the dune back into the car again.  Still it was heaps of fun.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Jamie Paterson

      Thanks mate. I was pretty stoked with it. The Stirling Ranges fitness campaign has started in earnest.

    Moonscape maybe.

    Hell of a way to diet. 🙂

    I guess you will be staying close to home this weekend …. any news yet.

      Hey Merv,

      Yeah I gave up exercising for the next 2yrs after that. Though I’m getting fit for my Bluff Knoll climb. Baby is due in 2wks but Melissa said she is too scared to sneeze in case her waters break! hehe.

    Very nice Jamie – like Merv says, it’s a moonscape! I reckon you could add some 30,30,0 USM to enhance mid range contrast and also perhaps crop top and bottom to tighten it a bit – winner!

      Hi Flemming,

      Thanks for stopping by and the advice. I’ll try it out and give it a go. 🙂
