Stormy Cottesloe Beach

cottesloe beach, australian landscape seascape photography, waves, surf

Well I wasn’t going to go out tonight.  You all know the usual story, too cold, too windy and its raining.   Something told me to just get out there and shoot.  Let’s face it, if you’re not there and the sunset fires up then its a shoot you’ll never get back.   So I headed down to Cottesloe Beach and I just felt that it was the place to be, I drove up to Trigg Beach, Bennion Beach and North Beach before I headed back down to Cottesloe.  I should’ve just stuck with my original decision!    I got so many interesting shots this afternoon and I can’t wait for Sunday afternoon as the waves are meant to be huge, so guess where I’ll be Sunday afternoon! 🙂

I hope you guys like this photo, as far as I’m concerned this one is definitely going straight into the pool room.

      Hi Ryan,

      Thanks very much for that I really appreciate it. I’ve got more coming later today but first I’m off to hit Cottesloe Beach again in about 2hrs and then this evening again.

    Very nice Jamie. I really like it too. I would be going for the print and hanging it too.

      Hi Graham,

      Thanks very much mate. Melissa says that she definitely wants this one on our wall.

    Those clouds are brilliant. And the colours are great. Definitely not your usual shot of Cottesloe that everyone takes either, which is nice to see.

      Hi Beau,

      Thanks very much for that. You got the sneak peak of my other photos on the back of my camera. LOL.

    Hey Jamie, great cloud band and colours captured.
    I’d have this on my wall also, cracker image mate.
    I dont think I could possibly build a house with enough wall space for all the images I like, I guess that is why fletcher has 3 galleries 😉

      Hi Adrian,

      Now that is the best excuse I’ve heard yet for a gallery. What a great idea! Thank you very much for taking the time to comment. 🙂
