Liquid Thunder

impressionist photography, north cottesloe, australian landscape photography

I decided to duck out the other night as the weather was quite nasty which often makes for interesting seascape photography. It was tempting to not get out of the car as the wind was extremely strong and blustery and there was sea spray being thrown up soaking the coastline.

As with all things photography you’re often rewarded when you make the effort and I was able to get this shot that conveys the ‘mood’ of the ocean. What do you guys think of it?

To achieve this look I set the camera to TV Priority, ISO50, 1sec shutter speed.

Thanks,

Jamie

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,

Earth meets Ocean

seascape photo, seascape, australian seascape photography

Wow I love this shot, I can’t believe I didn’t see it before when I was going through my images.  I just can’t get over the white streak of water rushing past where I was standing, trying to pull me in and you can see the water running off the rocks in front of me.   I managed to capture this on Friday evening, I must admit I didn’t think the sunset was going to go off, in fact when I arrived, there was nothing but rain squalls hitting the area and I was tempted to head on home.

As always patience pays off and just before sunset the rain disappeared long enough to get 20mins of shooting time.   It just goes to show you should never write off a sunrise or sunset until they’ve actually happened.

Hope everyone had a really awesome weekend!

Standing on the Edge

seascape photography, landscape photography, australian seascape photography

Hi Everyone,

This is another photo that I’m actually really happy with.   It doesn’t look like it but it wasn’t a calm day and I still managed to get soaked as usual, all good fun and its worth it when you pull the shot off.   I certainly feel more like I’m doing a fitness course than taking photos when I’m on these reefs with all the running backwards and forwards.   I certainly must be funny to watch moving across the reef especially when I’m not looking where I’m going and step into one of the hole in the reef!

Thanks,

Wicked Reef Streaks

australian seascape photography, australian landscape photography, sunsets,

Hi Everyone,

I must have lost around 10kgs taking this shot.   In fact I almost felt like Peter Lik!   I had to run out to this spot, slam my tripod down, get a quick focus in and then fire the shot all before the next wave came thumping through.   It was heaps of fun though even if I did cut it a bit fine a few times.    This sort of photography certainly makes you feel alive, though there isn’t much room for error.   I hope the rest of you got awesome shots this weekend.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Point Perron Sunsets

Hey Crew,

Another favourite shot of mine, this time its Point Perron again and this time I actually standing over the ledge.   Fortunately the waves were really small and didn’t have any strength in them so the camera was safe.  Phew!   I’ll definitely be heading back down there again soon as I managed to pull off at least three shots from this place in a matter of minutes that I was happy with.

Has anyone else shot down here at all?  I know Stephen has.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Richmond Bridge – Tasmania

richmond bridge, tasmania, australian landscape photography, australian seascape photography

I’ve been to Richmond to.  After seeing Mark’s photo’s of the Richmond Bridge it brought back some really awesome memories for me of Melissa, Xavier and I just strolling along this river and having a mini picnic.  Its a quiet, relaxing spot and I’d love to spend more time there.  Maybe I will stop off their again in a few weeks time.   In fact I definitely will.

All comments appreciated,

Point Walter Jetty

Hi Everyone,

As most of you know last Saturday was an amazing afternoon to be out and about shooting.   I said to Mr ‘True North’ Mark that it was almost like there was two sunsets.  If you look at my previous post you’ll see the sky was all orange but in this post nearly everything is pink.   I was swinging from left to right getting orange sunsets and pink sunsets.  I can’t remember the last time I was able to do something like that!    I was even luckier with this shot as there had been people on this jetty all afternoon, but for a few minutes while the sky lit up there was no one on it.  Bonus.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Fremantle Harbour

aerial photography, fremantle harbour, australian landscape photography, australian seascape photography, ships

Shooting from air can be quite addictive.   Its a point of view many of us don’t get to see on a day to day basis, to look down and see the world ticking along doing its thing while you’re free in the air is a very cool feeling.   On my way out to Rottnest I got the pilot to transit over Fremantle Harbour so that I could grab some shots of the ships in the harbour.   I was actually really surprised to see a rowing boat in the harbour next to the ship when I viewed this photo at 100%.  Talk about brave!

If you’ve never shot from the air do yourself a favour and charter a helicopter and do some shooting!  Its heaps of fun.

Thanks,

Burns Beach Sunrise

burns beach sunrise australian seascape photography jame paterson

What can I say?  I’m back into my early mornings again probably more so than evenings at the moment.  There is something so refreshing and cleansing about being up at the start of a brand new day.   I captured this seascape shot about a week ago after a trip up to Burns Beach.  What a great spot for a seascape photographer to go crazy.

Hope you guys enjoy it!
