Found My Truck

Mt Palmer, australian landscape photography, landscape photography, gold mine

Well I thought I’d lost my truck but no I managed to find it again fortunately!   Maybe not.   I was walking through the actual town site of Mt Palmer when I found this old truck that had obviously just been left to rot.   I like the fact the billy they used to hang off the front bumper was still there!

I thought it was a pretty cool find, but things like this always leave me walking away with more questions than answers.  Why did someone leave it there?  How long had it been there for?   What was it used for?   What stories could it tell?

I just love old stuff.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Cradle Mountain

Hi Crew,

Cradle Mountain, what a stunning piece of the Tasmanian landscape.   I drove past it quite a few times when I was in Tasmania in 1987 but I never had the opportunity to stop and have a look at it unfortunately.  Since then its been burnt on my mind.    I’ve been to Tasmania six times over the years but never as a photographer and finally when I went there in January this year I was lucky enough to spend the night at Cradle Mountain.

It captivated me, it was beautiful, seemingly untouched and still very wild.  It drew me in and I wanted to spend more time there so I planned to stay at Cradle Mountain for 5 days a couple of weeks ago.   It was so much fun.   As I was there for 5 days I got to see the mountains different moods and absorb the atmosphere.   There is a very strong sense of place running through this place.

Its no wonder Gustav Weindorfer lived most of his adult life there.   Well I hope you guys enjoy this photo.   If you ever get the chance to head on over to Tassie make sure you spend at least a few days at Cradle Mountain.

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,

Simplicity

Hi Everyone,

This is another shot that I managed to get while tearing around in the Lancelin sand dunes the other night.   Beau and I were driving along in between some dunes when this scene opened up in front of us.   It caught our attention because of the simple composition that it presented, needless to say we both jumped out of the car and started to shoot away.   When you see shots like this appear in front of you, you just know that we landscape photographers have the best job in the world.  We had to use a number of light sources to get this shot as Mark Stothard didn’t leave any moonlight behind for us from his visit up there a few nights ago.   (Since posting this, I have lightened up the top left hand corner and it looks stacks better).

Hope everyone has a great long weekend!

Falling………

lancelin sand dunes night australian landscape photography

Okay I’m being a visual artist here rather than a landscape photographer.   When I took this shoot I wanted the lines in the Lancelin sand dunes to point up to the sky.   Now I managed to get a shot that achieved that effect but the more I looked at this photo the more I thought there was something more to it.   It finally came to me and I spun it upside down and then instantly it made me feel like I was falling off the face of the earth.

I’ll post the actual landscape photograph shortly but I really liked this photo and wanted to share it with you guys.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Lancelin Sand Dunes

Hi Crew,

Its another weekend, time to get out there and shoot like crazy!    This photo was taken about two years ago and I’ve never really done much with it, however, with a few of the guys doing some black and white photos I thought I’d join the club.    Its so much fun shooting the sand dunes at Lancelin, they are forever changing and you always come back with something different.

When I took this photo it was blowing a gale as usual and I had to wait for a lull in the wind before rushing out of the car and setting up a shot.   I must have lost at least 5 kilos that day hopping out of the car and running up the dunes to setup for a shot and then run down the dune back into the car again.  Still it was heaps of fun.

Hope you all have a great weekend.
