North Cottesloe Last Light

australian photographer, seascape photography, australian landscapes, north cottesloe, australian landscape photography

Well its no secret that North Cottesloe is my metro version of Injidup Beach.   No matter how many times I think I’m going to shoot somewhere else I nearly always end up here.  Not sure why, there are plenty of other great beaches, but this one just has the ‘x factor’ for me.

Great little waves, great rocks and quite often I can get really close to the action without getting too wet, which I like to do.

This is a really simple composition but as we are all learning, quite often less is more.   I hope you all enjoy it.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Double Rainbow – Injidup

Yep.  Another file that has been sitting on my Mac for about one and a half years, not because I didn’t like it but just because I forgot about it.   I’d been setting up at Yallingup main break for a sunset shoot, but couldn’t shake the feeling that I really wasn’t in the right place.   Something kept telling me to head on over to Injidup Point and I decided to listen and jump in the car with only a few minutes to spare to get there.

As I was driving into the carpark I was presented with this scene.  A double rainbow as a rain shower was passing.   I stopped the car, grabbed the camera and popped off this shot before heading down to the beach.  I’m pretty happy now that I took the shot as I reckon its a pretty cool shot.   The afternoon glow from the setting sun along with the rainbows is just another visual splendor that I’ve managed to experience at Injidup.

Moody Injidup

I promise this will be my last photo of Injidup Beach for awhile!   It just blows me away that within a few minutes and within a few meters of the same spot I was able to capture a number of distinctly different moods from this place.

I hope you guys all have a great weekend.

Golden Moment

Hi Everyone,

This is a photo that I’d taken 18tmhs ago and completely forgotten about.  I struggled to sleep last night so I was just trawling through my images at 1am in the morning when I saw this and started to play with it.  I was really attracted to the golden rays of light washing over the entire scene.

It took me about 20mins to drive to this place and then another 10mins to walk here and I have to admit it was certainly worth the walk.   After seeing this I’m definitely going to have to go back and grab some more shots.  This was one of those places were you felt like you were the only person on Earth and that nothing else mattered, it was almost mystical.

I hope you guys enjoy it.  All comments are always welcome.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Twilight Cove Sunset

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe Christmas is almost here again?  Unbelievable.   This photo of Twilight Cove in Esperance was taken quite sometime ago and its always been on my list of things to do so I thought I’d finally do it.   Let me start by saying that neither the rocks or water have been saturated at all.   For those of you who have been down to Esperance you’ll know that the water is a remarkable blue and of course that its freezing cold!

I’m hoping to be able to get back down to Esperance soon to capture more of its beauty though this time I might head out to Cape Arid as well as spending time around the town itself.

Have a great week everyone and I hope that you’ve all bought you’re presents and avoided the last minute shopping rush.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Port Beach Sunset

Hi Everyone,

Hope you’ve all had a great weekend so far.  This is a shot that I managed to get whilst out shooting with Mark last week.  It was such an intense and magical sunset, in fact probably the best I’ve seen in a long time.

It was one of those sorts of sunsets where I actually stopped shooting for a few minutes so that I could just take time out and enjoy it.   One the way home Mark and I stopped off and tried out another location that promises to provide us with a couple of great photos, unfortunately the light wasn’t right on the night but stayed tuned.  I’m sure either Mark or I will return there soon to have another crack at it shortly.

 

Thanks for stopping by guys,

Jamie Pateson

Trigg Beach

Trigg Beach, australian landscape photography

Hello Everyone,

Can you believe that Christmas is almost here?  Its such a cliche thing to say but I can’t believe a whole year has just flown past yet again!  Its exciting to find out what 2011 has in store for us.

Recently I headed down to Trigg Beach to capture a sunset as it had been a really hot and humid day and there were plenty of clouds about as well, which normally makes for a spectacular sunset and I certainly wasn’t disappointed on this occasion.

The moment I got to the beach I just knew that we were going to be in for a treat.   The sun was already throwing up some awesome colours an hour before the sun went down, so I just started shooting away and having a blast.   Don’t you just love it when you’re having fun and all your photos just seem to fall into place?

Have a great week!

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Cottesloe Beach

Hi Crew,

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend.   Have I jumped on the black and white bandwagon with this shot?  Certainly not!   I see things in colour and in the past have converted the odd photo to black and white when the composition and light was good but the colour wasn’t.

In this case though I always saw this Cottesloe Beach shot in black and white for some reason, perhaps its because of Brett Morgan’s latest photos.  Either way I’m glad I saw this one in black and white as it really works.  Now should I rock Mark’s boat and do a third post for the day?  I think so.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Awesome Tasmania

Mt Roland, Tasmania, Australian Landscape Photography, fine art landscape photography

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Mt Roland in Tasmania.   I’d seen this mountain when I was in Tasmania in January but unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to photograph it as I ran out of time.  In fact I almost ran out of time again on this occasion as I only had 3 hours before jumping on the plane and it had taken me much longer to get to this spot because of ice on the road.    I’m not really sure how we are supposed to drive with ice on the road as I’ve never done it before so I just went amazingly slow on the road.

Mt Roland is really a very imposing feature in the Sheffield area as Mr Tim “Island Images” Wootton will confirm, after all its his home turf.   I’m glad I finally got to shoot it and I’ll definitely have another go at it again when I’m back there in six weeks time.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone have any hints for what to do when driving when there is ice on the road?

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Drama At The Basin

The Basin, Rottnest Island, Rotto, sunset, australian landscape photography, australian seascape photography

Same place different point of view.   The Basin at Rottnest Island has just so many angles that you can take photos from, I’m sure I could spend another few days hitting this spot without getting bored.   My main focus in this photo wasn’t surprisingly the clouds, they were a great bonus.   The real attraction for me in this photo was the little sandy channel running through the reef and out into the basin itself.  It actually struck me that in all my years of going to Rottnest I’ve never been swimming here.  Weird!

This has been created by using two vertical photos stitched together using my 16-35mm lens.   As always I hope you guys enjoy it.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson
