Twilight Cove Sunset

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe Christmas is almost here again?  Unbelievable.   This photo of Twilight Cove in Esperance was taken quite sometime ago and its always been on my list of things to do so I thought I’d finally do it.   Let me start by saying that neither the rocks or water have been saturated at all.   For those of you who have been down to Esperance you’ll know that the water is a remarkable blue and of course that its freezing cold!

I’m hoping to be able to get back down to Esperance soon to capture more of its beauty though this time I might head out to Cape Arid as well as spending time around the town itself.

Have a great week everyone and I hope that you’ve all bought you’re presents and avoided the last minute shopping rush.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Hellfire Bay Esperance

Hi Everyone,

Esperance, what an amazing place for a landscape photographer to head to.   I can’t wait to get back down there and spend some real time getting photos there.    Esperance has everything in such close proximity to each other.   You spend one morning down at Lucky Bay shooting beach scenes and then that night spend the evening shooting rocky coastly scenes.   Next time I’m down there I’d really like to head East a bit more and check out Cape Arid National Park, it looks like there are some really cool sand dunes, shipwrecks and other interesting features to capture down there.

I managed to capture this shot after trying to capture Hellfie Bay in the morning light but I just wasn’t happy with what I was getting so I moved around the corner and saw this view before me.   My eyes lit up when I saw this and I started to snap away.  It just goes to show that you should never give up.   If you aren’t capturing what you want, stop and think about what is available to you and what can work for you and try shooting that instead.

If all else fails try just the old ‘turn around and look behind you trick’ how many of you have tried that and have it work for you?

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend,

Jamie Paterson

Twilight at Lucky Bay – Esperance

lucky bay esperance australian landscapes seascapes jamie paterson photography

Hi Everyone,

As some of you may or may not know, earlier this year I had the privilege of going down to Esperance with Neal of Spool Photography and Kirk Hille.    This was from our second night out at Lucky Bay in Esperance.   As there was stacks of seaweed on the beach I thought I would go in search of some water crashing against some really steep rocks.   Remember as a landscape and seascape photographer we don’t always get to shoot what we want so rather than waste the sunset or sunrise we have to quickly find something else to shoot.

Well I found a little trail leading off past the big rocks at Lucky Bay and I decided to follow it.   It took me 25mins of walking to find some decent rocks and I managed to get a few decent shots.   I then commenced the really steep walk home and once I got to the top of the hill I just had to stop for some water.   It was from here that I took the shot.  I was admiring the rock and just looking over Lucky Bay and relaxing when being a bit slow from all the exercise I finally realised that this would actually make a pretty cool shot.   I love this shot its a typical Australian Landscape married with a great seascape shot.   You’ve got the red rocks with green bush and the beautiful colours of Lucky Bay below.   I couldn’t have asked for much more.

Its amazing how some of our best shots happen when we least expect it.   I’m definitely heading down there again next year probably a bit further East this time though as well as a bit more time around the town.   Hopefully I can get up to Broome as well and maybe share a beer with Flemming.

Does anyone else have any grand photography trips lined up for next year?   Can anyone else share an accidently shot that turned out to be amazing?

Thanks for reading and commenting,

Jamie Paterson

Daybreak At Twilight Cove

Hi Crew,

This is a photo from my first morning in Esperance when I was there in May.   Poor Neal had to drink a bottle of Red to help him sleep as Kirk and I apparently aren’t the quietest of sleepers.  I don’t know what he meant as I didn’t hear anything!   This is one of those sunrises that you just get lost in as you stand there in amazement, you have to remember to keep taking photos.    After we’d had a few days of average light in the Stirling Ranges this sunrise was definitely a welcome sight.   If you’ve never been to Esperance you should do, its a must for landscape photography, its such a beautiful and diverse place.

We revisited Twilight Cove a number of times over the next few days but nothing matched up to this sunrise, in fact it was probably the best one the whole trip.   I remember after catching these photos walking away from the camera for a couple of minutes and just watching it unfold before me, dare I say it was almost a spiritual experience?

Have any of you guys ever grabbed a few photos and then stepped back and enjoyed the view and allowed yourself to be caught up in the moment?

Hope you enjoy the photo and as always comments are appreciated. :-)

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Spot Mr Spool – Thistle Cove, Esperance

Hi Everyone,

Can you spot Mr Spool?   This photo was taken whilst we were down at Esperance taking landscape photographs.   This photo hasn’t been edited at all, just thought I’d put it up for fun.   

Thanks,

Esperance Rocks!!!

australian landscapes

Today is bonus day, two posts in one day!    This photo was taken my first morning in Esperance, what an amazing sight to wake up to.  As landscape photographers we spend so much time up early in the mornings and out late at night chasing the elusive landscape photograph often only to have nature spoil our plans, so its a great feeling when you arrive on location and see something like this unfold before you.   This was taken next to Twilight Cove in Esperance.

Did anyone get any good photos whilst we were away?   What was the light like in Perth?

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson
