Fremantle Last Light

seascape photography, australian landscape photography, australian photographer, coastal photography

I just love the clouds in this shot it reminds me of the photo I took in Broome recently.    Really complex with lots of interesting patterns in them.

The waves were pretty cool as well.  I came so close to not heading out on this particular afternoon and staying home.  Just goes to show if you aren’t out and about you’ll miss out.

Hope you guys enjoy it.

Thanks,

Cable Beach Drama

Now this is what I call drama!   On our second last day up at Cable Beach we knew that a storm was coming in and that it was going to be a big one.   Well the weather guys got it right, it was a big storm but the best thing about it was that it took hours to build.  So we had plenty of time to capture it before heading inside to escape the rains.

It was a fantastic feeling just standing there on the beach watching it build up, knowing there was little we could do but stand there and watch in amazement.

I’d love to head up there just before Cyclone season to capture more of these sorts of shots but I certainly wouldn’t want to be there during a cyclone!

I hope you enjoy it,

Thanks,

Shallow Depths

Hi Everyone,

I took this photo down at Point Perron a few months ago now.   I’ve always been one to just stare at the ocean, when I was little kid, when I was in the Navy and even in this present day I could literally just stare at the ocean for hours.  I don’t really know why but it holds so much meaning for me, it has always had a strong pull on me and my life.

I just love this shot as it reminds me of what I see when I stare into the ocean.   Colour, movement, each little movement of the water tells a story.   Every wave is different and will never be repeated again.

Its time to head off and plan my next ocean adventure.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

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,

Jamie Paterson

Hi Everyone,

I hope you have a great start to 2011.  I hope you’ve set some fantastic goals for 2011 and that you obtain them all.   For me I’ve got three really big trips on next year and I have a few other really big plans as well so I’m really excited.

I hope I get to catch up with all of you in the new year.

Stay safe crew,

Jamie Paterson

The Nut – Stanley

Hi Everyone,

After an amazing trip I’m back!   I had so much fun even though it was heaps of hard work, I even managed to make it up to the top of Cradle Mountain itself but that’s another story.   The Nut at Stanley in Tasmania is a spot I’ve been dying to photograph for ages and I didn’t think I’d get to photograph it this time around as while I was in Tasmania they had one of their worst cold fronts in years.   It was the same one that caused all the flooding in Victoria.

However, as usual patience paid off and on my fourth day in Tassie the skies cleared so I decided to head up the coast and see what I could get.   The Nut is quite striking and even has a small cable car going up to the top of it.  I couldn’t believe it but there were small kids playing in the water while I had on two layers of thermals.  Guess they must have been locals!

Hope you like it and its good to be back.   Hopefully we can all catch up soon.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Drama At The Basin

Same place different point of view.   The Basin at Rottnest Island has just so many angles that you can take photos from, I’m sure I could spend another few days hitting this spot without getting bored.   My main focus in this photo wasn’t surprisingly the clouds, they were a great bonus.   The real attraction for me in this photo was the little sandy channel running through the reef and out into the basin itself.  It actually struck me that in all my years of going to Rottnest I’ve never been swimming here.  Weird!

This has been created by using two vertical photos stitched together using my 16-35mm lens.   As always I hope you guys enjoy it.

Thanks,

Reflected Oceanicity

seascapes, seascape photography, australian landscape photography

Okay, I’m just going to come out with it and say this is my favourite photo that I’ve taken in a long time.   It has everything that I strive to capture in my photos.   Its got a nice warming colour and strong water movement as well.  I had to wait for just the right moment and exposure to get those reflections in the water and to capture the wave exploding onto the reef.

Hopefully this photo will earn me Mr Flemming’s ‘King of the Waves’ tittle again.  I think it will as I’ve managed to capture my passion for the ocean in this photo.

I hope you guys all like it as well,

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Earth meets Ocean

seascape photo, seascape, australian seascape photography

Wow I love this shot, I can’t believe I didn’t see it before when I was going through my images.  I just can’t get over the white streak of water rushing past where I was standing, trying to pull me in and you can see the water running off the rocks in front of me.   I managed to capture this on Friday evening, I must admit I didn’t think the sunset was going to go off, in fact when I arrived, there was nothing but rain squalls hitting the area and I was tempted to head on home.

As always patience pays off and just before sunset the rain disappeared long enough to get 20mins of shooting time.   It just goes to show you should never write off a sunrise or sunset until they’ve actually happened.

Hope everyone had a really awesome weekend!

Standing on the Edge

seascape photography, landscape photography, australian seascape photography

Hi Everyone,

This is another photo that I’m actually really happy with.   It doesn’t look like it but it wasn’t a calm day and I still managed to get soaked as usual, all good fun and its worth it when you pull the shot off.   I certainly feel more like I’m doing a fitness course than taking photos when I’m on these reefs with all the running backwards and forwards.   I certainly must be funny to watch moving across the reef especially when I’m not looking where I’m going and step into one of the hole in the reef!

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson
