Big Brook Dam Pemberton

A few weeks ago I managed to head down to Pemberton for a family weekend away and was joined by a very close friend as well.   Pemberton is one of those towns that I’ve driven through heaps and never really been captivated enough to stop and have a look around, despite the amount of great photos that I’ve seen come from the area.

For some inexplicable reason I was really motivated to take a trip out to Big Brook Dam and it was certainly worth it.  What caught my eye in this scene was all the different reflections, colours and dare I say it serenity of the moment.   Just being able to see straight into the bottom of the lake was fantastic.  About 5 mins after this shot was taken the morning wind picked up and ripples formed across the water wiping out all the reflections.  Talk about good timing.

So I’ll definitely be heading back down to Pemberton again especially in Winter, I can already see some frosty, foggy forest shots coming up!

Leighton Beach Dreams

Another place, another time, swaying in the wind, today you’re mine.

The gateway to my beloved place, past you I often race.

You call you beckon, I stop for a second.

I still need to get down to my beloved ocean

But today is different, just quickly

I’ll capture and admire your motion.

Drifting, Dreaming, Seeing

One of the great things about being an artist and seascape photographer is that I get to see things others don’t. People spend so much time simply looking at things and not taking the time to truly see them. Its my privilege to show people there is a whole other world to see if you stop and allow yourself to see it.

I get to take the time to look at everyday objects and ponder what they mean to me? How do they make me feel? Just by asking those two questions alone I get to see what others don’t.

Use your heart to see things sometimes and not your eyes and you will find an amazing new world right in front of you.

Liquid Thunder

I decided to duck out the other night as the weather was quite nasty which often makes for interesting seascape photography. It was tempting to not get out of the car as the wind was extremely strong and blustery and there was sea spray being thrown up soaking the coastline.

As with all things photography you’re often rewarded when you make the effort and I was able to get this shot that conveys the ‘mood’ of the ocean. What do you guys think of it?

To achieve this look I set the camera to TV Priority, ISO50, 1sec shutter speed.

Such an amazing day. The sun was dropping behind the waves and throwing the most beautiful golden light into the waves. Such a pleasure to photograph them.

I wanted to capture the tips of the waves throwing themselves up into the air before they came crashing down again. Waves are all about motion so it seems to make sense to me that we capture their motion. This was a handheld shot in TV priority set to 1/20th of a second to convey a sense of motion.

Peaceful Reflections

Hi Everyone,

I just love this shot.  I just feel like I can fall into the photo and lose myself, forever!  Paul Pichugin and I had been driving around for hours when we decided to stop here at dusk and see what we could capture.  I must admit I am so used to looking at oceans that it took me ages to actually ‘see’ this photo.   Once I started seeing these images, it was all I could see and I had a ball.

It was great getting out of my comfort zone and shooting subjects other than the ocean.

Evening Stroll

You and I stroll down the beach,

Together, forever, you’re always within reach.

The water as it ebb and flows,

Reminds me our love always grows.
