Lifes Glow

Life is always full of surprises isn’t?  I decided to head out to take a photo on this particular night for no other than reason than to just relax and wind down.  It had been a busy week and I certainly didn’t expect the sunset to be spectacular at all.

How wrong was I?  It built up slowly taking at least 20 minutes to work up to its full intensity.  People who were running along the river stopped to admire how beautiful it was.  People driving past pulled over to the side of the road and hopped out of their cars to take snapshots, it was that beautiful.

The reflections were my favourite part of this shot.  What about yours?  On another note, I’ve been shooting this spot for 18mths and its the first time I’ve managed to get the shot I wanted.  Patience and persistence in photography always pays off.

This along with my other photos is up for sale.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

The Majesty Of Boats

I really have no idea at all why this boat intrigues me so much but it does.   I guess she just strikes me as being a really hardworking and honest boat that has worked hard and is now lazing around the Canning River just soaking up the sun.   As I mentionined to Mark the other day, I find work boats so much more interesting than pleasure boats.   Her name is Zulu and I think she might be an old RAAF work boat but I’m not 100% sure.

In all honesty I think if I knew who owned Zulu I’d probably take her off their hands, that is how much I like her.  If you’re the owner and reading the blog let me know.

I’ve only seen her move once in the whole time that she has been on the Canning River which is a shame.   I do believe there is another one like her in Freshwater Bay.

Thanks for reading and all comments are appreciated.

Thanks,

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Hi Crew,

Its been a tough week at work and on Friday afternoon I decided to head out for a shoot at late notice.  I wanted to shoot somewhere that was new but not too far from home.  I remember that Mr ‘Stirling Stephen Williams Ranges’ shot a jetty near my house so I decided to head over there quickly and fire off a few shots to see what I could come up with.  I was surprised that after living near the Canning River all my life I’d never seen this jetty.

Camera Settings:

Aperture – F22

ISO – 50

Shutter – 5secs

I hope you guys enjoy the photo.  It was certainly nice taking the photo and watching the sunset.  The only thing missing was a beer in my hand!!!

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson
