Cable Beach

I love Cable Beach in Broome.  Awesome blue skies and beautiful green water sums it all up for me.   On this particular day we decided not to go swimming as the lifeguards had spotted a 2M crocodile swimming up and down the beach and we thought it might not be too good for our health.

This shot was taken with the Canon 17mm TSE lens which seems to be able to create amazing skies out of almost nothing.

In this photo the tide was about halfway out and it certainly doesn’t take long for the tide to rise or fall up at Broome.   It took a bit of getting used to the tides.  The first two days I found spots I liked whilst the tide was rising thinking that I would have plenty of time to get a shot, when in actually fact I ended up at least 100M further back from where I expected to be!

I hope you guys like this shot.  Let me know what you think of it.

Thanks,

Entrance Point Broome

I managed to capture this spot at Entrance Point Broome on my last day in town.    I just really loved the red rock contrasting against the emerald green water and the rock formations caught my eye while we were having a nice feed of fish and chips down at the Wharf Restaurant.

Ahhhh Broometime.  Bring it on.  What a place.

Thanks,

Cable Beach Sand Patterns

Has it really been almost a week since I’ve left Broome?   Its been such a crazy and busy week that I still haven’t sat down and looked at all my photos from Broome just yet, but you can bet I will be checking them out this weekend.   Its always fun checking out photos from a trip, not only because of the fact that you’ll hopefully be able to create some great images, but also because it helps you reflect on what an amazing place you have just visited.

Cable Beach for me was just so awesome.  I could easily spend all Winter up there and just shoot her many moods.   It was fun to watch so many people having so much fun and it really did seem to be an integral part of the town, life really seemed to revolve around it.

Anyway, onwards and upwards as they say.  Time to start planning even more amazing trips to far away and exotic places.   Has anyone else been to Broome?

Riddell Beach – Broome

broome, cable beach, australian landscape photography,

Hi Everyone,

Well I’ve just stepped through the door after being in Broome for the past seven days getting great photographs and even more importantly spending some great quality time with my family.   I haven’t been this content in ages!

This is Riddell Beach (links to Google Maps) It was named after Captain Riddell who was murdered by his crew after a mutiny in 1899.

Broome was quite simply amazing, I haven’t really managed to work out yet why its had such a huge and positive effect on me, I just know that it has.   Perhaps its the fact that Broome is still quite raw and untamed.   We may have built up a small town there but Mother Nature is very much still in full control, from the cyclones that she throws at the town to the huge tides that Broome experiences.

It could be that the locals are closer to the iconic ‘Aussie Larikan’ self image than we are.  I met so many friendly people up there who were all just really chilled out and happy to stop and have a chat and let you know about the best spots to look at and when they should be looked at.

A great painter Larry Mitchell once said to Christian and I that the closer man gets to nature the more content he feels and the less we worry about worldly things.   Maybe that is why we as an entire family had so much fun.  We were out in nature’s arms each day, playing on Cable Beach, basking in the sun and admiring the mangroves at Roebuck Bay.   We didn’t need anything else so our cares simply melted away.  Yes I think that is it, Broome quite simply melted our wants away until we were quite content with what we had.

Anyhow, enough melancholy,   I’ve got stacks of photos to share with you guys over the next few weeks from Broome.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson
