North Cotteloe Sunset

Last Friday night I was fortunate enough to catch up with fellow photographers True North Mark, Peta- Anne North and Greg Ratajcak at North Cottesloe Beach. As always the conditions were fantastic.

The sun cast a stunning golden glow over everything and stayed for ages as you can see in the photo. It was such a magical evening.

When was the last time you saw a sunset like this?

Thanks,

Jamie

North Cottesloe Beach Sunset

Autumn Awesome::

I headed out on Friday evening to let Mother Nature show me what she’s got.  Little did I know that less than 15M away were two other fantastic landscape photographers,  True North Mark and Tristan Jud were just on the otherside of the reef shooting the same sunset.

Its a small world.  The best colour actually happened just before sunset, it seemed like the sun literally burst into a deep orange just before it ducked below the horizon.  Sensational and a great way to end the day. :-)

Did you all have a great weekend?

North Cotteloe Sunset

Last Friday night I decided to head down to North Cottesloe Beach to unwind and relax and of course to get some photos!  North Cottesloe was the best I’d seen in ages so I started to snap away.

It was such an beautiful evening, warmish for a winters day and there was almost no wind around.   The swell was really nice and these waves were just coming through every couple of minutes.  Simply sensational.

I noticed that the gold light was shining right through these waves so I threw on my 70-200mm lens and started banging away.  When I got home and saw this photo I was pretty ecstatic!

I hope you guys enjoy it.  How does it make you feel?

Thanks,

Jamie

Cottesloe Beach Colours

Ummm what more can I say?  This had to be the best sunset of the year and for once I was there.  I was there and I was fully loaded ready to capture what ever unfolded.

To have this mind blowing sunset unfold before me was the most amazing bonus.  I couldn’t be happier. :-)

The sunset was so intense that I had to desaaturize a lot of the reds in this photo.

Hope you guys enjoy it.

Cottesloe Beach Clouds

What more can I say?  I just love shooting Cottesloe Beach.  Probably because I spent a lot of my youth there and there is probably some truth to the rumour that I may have undertaken one maybe two Sunday sessions at the nearby hotels. :-)

What really struck me about Cottesloe on this particular day was the different levels and colours of clouds.  It was like Pro Heart had just loaded up a paint gun and splatted the sky with white. !

Hope you guys all enjoy it.  :-)

Thanks,

Jamie

Summer Days

Don’t you just love Summer days like these?   When its been hot and humid all day and you just know that you’re going to see an amazing sunset?

I think we all do and of course the best thing about days like these are taking a quick dip in the water once the sun has set to cool down.   I could spend hours down at the beach in the evenings just chilling out.

What about you?  What is your favourite thing to do on a hot summer evening?   After you’ve taken your photos of course.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Lest We Forget

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Lest We Forget.

 

Taken with Adrian Wayte tonight.   Thanks mate for the company.

Cottesloe Beach Hues

On Sunday I was checking out the awesome clouds and thought there was no way that I could miss out on that action.  I headed out to Cottesloe Beach to see what sort of photos I could get.  It became really evident as sunset was arriving that all the clouds above Cottesloe were very qucikly burning off, which was a real shame as the clouds 30mins previously were just amazing.

Fortunately, I had checked out these rocks out about an hour before sunset and they had looked pretty cool, so I quickly scrambled down to them and started to snap away.  In hindsight I’m actually pretty glad I was forced into this location as I’m really pleased with the way the shot turned out.   Hopefully you guys do as well.

Let me know what you think,
Thanks,

Cottesloe Beach Blur

Last Friday afternoon it was really windy and blustery but I thought I would head out to Cottesloe Beach anyway and see what I could come up with.   I decided to use the good old Lee Big Stopper to try and add some drama to the image as it was still early afternoon.   As you would expect there was virtually no one on the beach as it was just so cold.

I know its not your typical Cottesloe Beach photo with lots of blue sky and people running around everywhere but I really wanted one that showed how dramatic and empty this place can be during winter.  I think I passed the challenge, hopefully you guys do as well.

Thanks,

Jamie

Calm

Hi Everyone,

Yes its another shot of North Cottesloe!   I guess it just goes to how diverse and different this place can be if you take the time to get to know it.   I like this shot as it seems really calming and relaxing which is exactly how North Cottesloe makes me feel when I’m there.

I can’t believe the weekend is pretty much over.  Bring on the new week!

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson
