Hanalei Bay

Ahhhh Kauai, is there a more relaxing place in the world?   I think Rottnest comes pretty close and its certainly a lot cheaper to get to (only just!) but I just simply love Hawaii and the Hawaiian way of life.

This is Hanalei Bay which is a really nice spot to stay if you ever get to travel to Kauai.   It has an extremely relaxed atmosphere surrounding it and most people there are very chilled out.   Its also an extremely popular surfing spot and for good reason, look at the size of that swell coming through and all the swell lines out in the ocean.

Thanks,

Cosy Corner

Hi Everyone,

This weekend I managed to make my way to a little place called Cosy Corner.  I saw it last December when I was in the area with Mark and some other fellow photographers, unfortunately I had just tore my calf muscle so I couldn’t really get out of the car.   Its a great little spot and I just knew I had to return, so when I had the chance to head down south this weekend, this was the second place I hit, after Injidup Beach of course.

I reckon Cosy Corner would be a great place to go for a snorkel and to pick up some crayfish as well.  So does it look nice and cosy to you guys?

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

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

Stationary Motion

Hi Everyone,

For me there is just nothing like standing there and watching the ocean move around stationary objects.   It looks like the ocean isn’t doing the rocks or other things any damage but we all know that the ocean always wins.  Every time!   Its also just so relaxing listening to the waves crashing onto the rocks and then listening to it sliding back off the beach.   I could seriously watch and listen to that same motion all day long.

In Sydney I used to live right on the beach and it was great being able to leave the windows open each night and let the ocean sing me to sleep.  I remember that I used to sleep so deeply each night.   In the Navy the ocean used to rock me to sleep all night though in the Southern Ocean she could be a bit rude and would throw me out of bed when I least expected it.

So where am I going with all this?   Its simple, I’m just obsessed by the ocean.  I hope you guys enjoy the photo.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Geordie Bay Rottnest

Hi Everyone,

I can’t believe this photo was taken almost a year ago.  How time flies!   A friend of mine is an amazing artist and she was really excited about the idea of hiring a helicopter and heading out to Rottnest to get some shots of it.   We spend just under an hour over Rottnest and she had an absolute blast.

We specifically headed over on Easter Saturday as we figured that there would be stacks of boats over at the island and we certainly weren’t disappointed.   I’m thinking about heading back over there again soon, this time on a less cloudy day.

Thanks,

Hi Everyone,

I hope you have a great start to 2011.  I hope you’ve set some fantastic goals for 2011 and that you obtain them all.   For me I’ve got three really big trips on next year and I have a few other really big plans as well so I’m really excited.

I hope I get to catch up with all of you in the new year.

Stay safe crew,

Heartbreak Hill

Hi Everyone,

Ok it might not look like it but Marky Mark and I were about to tackle the hardest part of all the trails that we drove over whilst covering the “Longest Day” run.

We really could’ve done with a monster truck to cover this section of the track as it was just so rocky it wasn’t funny.   We were driving up the hill just waiting for one of the tyres to pop!

Check out Mark flexing his muscles.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Boranup Forest

On Tuesday 21 Dec 2010 I was lucky enough to be invited along to record a charity event along with Christian and Mike Fletcher, Merv French, Peter Hodgson, Jamie Nichalo, James X and True North Mark.  It was an amazing and epic 24hrs and I’ve been introduced to a lot of new areas down south to shoot!

On the Monday night we shot the Leeuwin Lighthouse until late and fell asleep around 12am.   We were all up at 3:30am to record the start of the charity run which started at 4am.   We then followed the two runners all the way up the coast snapping shots of them as they were running along it.   I can’t believe they ended up running for 21 hours straight.  What an amazing feat.

Along the way we stopped off at Boranup Forest for a few shots and this is one of the shots that I managed to grab and I’m really happy with it.  Its also one of the few spots that I was able to hobble to during the day thanks to a torn calf muscle.

Thanks for inviting me along guys, it was great to catch up with all of you again.

Thanks for your comments,

Jamie Paterson

Trigg Beach

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

Blackwall Reach Boats

Blackwall Reach near Fremantle would have to be one of my more favourite spots on the Swan River.   Despite all the boat traffic going by its actually a very peaceful place to be.   Its also a pretty cool spot to go diving as there are stacks of boats sitting on the bottom here, bikes are down there and I’ve even found the remains of an old truck down here.

If you’re into prawn diving this is one of the best spots in the Swan River to get them.  Normally they are between 9M and 14M of water and on a good night you could easily bring in a kilo of prawns.   Perhaps one of the best things about this area is that its full of seahorses just below the surface.  I could almost guarantee that if you went for a snorkel or dive around here you would find at least one seahorse.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend.  I certainly did.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson
