Weekend Wanderings

barrington quarry, australian landscape photography,

How was your weekend? The weather is finely starting to look like Spring here in Perth. Bring it on!

Last weekend I did some wandering around the Perth Hills and managed to capture this shot. I’m pretty happy with it. What do you think of it?

Thanks,

Jamie

Peaceful Moments

star photography, night photography

The other night I realised it was a no moon night so it was probably a great idea to head out into the bush to try and capture some Milky Way shots.  The only issue was a large storm front was also due to hit the area that night.  The sky looked clear so I decided to hit the road anyway and give it a go.

The further inland I went the more I realised I was going to have to be extremely lucky to get the shot I wanted.  Well Lady Luck was on my side and I managed to capture a great shot just before it started to pour down.  I did have my sway out but within 5mins it was rolled up and in the back of the car.  3.5hrs later I had a great shot and I was snuggled up in my warm bed.  A perfect night of star photography!

Thanks,

Jamie

Cable Beach Reflections

broome, seascape photography, australian landscape photography, western australia, sunset

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

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

East of Perth

star photography, australian landscape photography, night photography,

One of my great childhood memories is of being able to sit down at Deepwater Point and being able to see the Milky Way clearly.  Its a lot more difficult now to get the same view of the stars unless you’re willing to do a little travel.  If you are you’ll still be rewarded with an amazing Milky Way spectacle.

I drove about 2.5hrs East to capture this shot on a night when the car was reading -3 degrees Celsius.  Ouch it was cold!  This was shot two weeks ago, and one of the best things about shooting in Winter is that you’ll get this sort of view at 7pm onwards.  So I didn’t have to stay up too late for this shot.  Always a good thing when you hear Dingos howling nearby.  I managed to capture the shots I wanted and be in bed safe from the Dingos by 9pm.

It was a successful trip and I can’t wait to head out there again.  This place was really interesting and I’m pretty sure I could spend the entire daytime shooting here as well.

What do you think of when you look at the stars?

Thanks,

Jamie

Roebuck Bay Broome

broome landscape photography, seascape photography, aerial photography, australian landscape photograpny

I love the amazing colours of the water in this shot. You can even see swirls of sand in the water caused by its fast movement.

I’ve been up to Broome a few times now and this is the first time I had to chance to fly into Broome via Roebuck Bay and I was really impressed. You can see miles of beautiful Mangroves and it all looks so healthy. I bet there are a few massive mud crabs hiding in there!

Have you tried capturing photos out of a plane? How did they turn out?

Thanks,

Jamie

Lifes Glow

Life is always full of surprises isn’t?  I decided to head out to take a photo on this particular night for no other than reason than to just relax and wind down.  It had been a busy week and I certainly didn’t expect the sunset to be spectacular at all.

How wrong was I?  It built up slowly taking at least 20 minutes to work up to its full intensity.  People who were running along the river stopped to admire how beautiful it was.  People driving past pulled over to the side of the road and hopped out of their cars to take snapshots, it was that beautiful.

The reflections were my favourite part of this shot.  What about yours?  On another note, I’ve been shooting this spot for 18mths and its the first time I’ve managed to get the shot I wanted.  Patience and persistence in photography always pays off.

This along with my other photos is up for sale.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

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 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?

Swan River Sunset

perth sunset, bicton, boats, seascape photography, australian landscape photography

Perth sunsets can be absolutely amazing especially during summer where they often an intense bright red and last for ages.   This was one of those sunsets that looked like it was never going to eventuate into anything but then surprised me by being one of the best I’d seen in years.

It just goes to show as always that if you aren’t there you won’t get the shot, so make sure you head out no matter what.   I’m actually really surprised that no families were out on this evening.  Normally on a evening like this I would expect to see families sitting on the grass with their fish and chips and the kids splashing in the water soaking up the last warm sunshine for the days.  I guess no one else expected it to be an awesome evening either.

Where is your favourite part of the river?

Thanks,

Jamie
