Meelup on the Flipside


This is something I captured on a trip down south to Dunsborough, the light had been terrible for days and I just got the urge one morning to head out to this spot that I’d been checking out for months and it was the only day that any clouds were present at all so I got really lucky.    30mins after this photo the wind picked up and started to blow the clouds away.    Straight after this shoot I went into Yallingup to check out the surf and was pleasantly surprised, firstly because the waves were massive and secondly because I got to see a school of dolphins surfing at the Yallingup main break.   What a wicked way to start the day.   Oh, and why ‘Meelup on the Flipside’?   Because Meelup is on the other side of the point.

I just love this spot and I’ll be back to take some photos with different points of view.

    The water looks amazing over that way as always Jamie ! nice shot and definitely looks like a place to revisit.

    I took one shot this evening but hope to take something in the morning as well…

    Hi Tony,

    Thanks for that. Just realised that people can’t click on the photo and make it big.

    Sorry Jamie just about to post last nights firework image!!! Just wondering about the purple tinge in the clouds, did you use a filter on this? Needs a few more images either side to really open the scene up, but that`s perspective. Take it easy mate.

    Nice location and shot Jamie. love the water colour, maybe just a tad dark in the sky for the colour …

    Would like to see it a little larger and maybe crop out the bottom 1/5th where the water texture changes as there is no movement in that pool of water …

    Just ideas …
