Little Salmon Bay Rottnest

Little Salmon Bay Rottnest::  After spending time with the family all week, it was definitely time to sneak off by myself to get some solitude and quiet time with Mother Nature.

I was really attracted to this spot, Little Salmon Bay because of the bright green patches in the water.  It was like patch work quilt.   I spent about 2hrs in this little bay, shooting away and then it was time to put my camera down and just enjoy the place.

I sat down on the beach and felt the gentle winter sun heating me up.  I then just shut my eyes and listened, really listened to everything that was going on around me.

From the waves lapping at the beach, to the sound the wind made as scurried across the beach.  It was a truly relaxing experience.

Do you ever take time out to just listen to Mother Nature?

Thanks,

Jamie

Ocean Reflections

It’s rare to get water conditions like this out in the ocean.  Its nearly always rougher than this with the wind, swell and waves always manipulating the surface of it.  So on this particular morning as we were heading out to the Gulf of Mexico channel on a small boat I got pretty excited.

The ocean as you can see was extremely flat and we were getting all these amazing cloud reflections in the water.  I just went snap happy and filled up almost a full card not bad considering we were only out there for three hours!

Have you ever seen the ocean like this?

Thanks,

Jamie

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

Hawaii Waters

This photo was taken on the last day of my last trip to Hawaii, how amazingly clear is the water?   It was a really special day as I’ve been to Hawaii quite a few times but this was only the second time my wife had been there with me and her first trip there with me was almost 10yrs ago.

We spent six days together investigating little bays like this all over the island of Kauai and just jumping into the water whenever we could.  The trip finished all too quickly as they do but we got to see and shoot so much during that time.

I cant wait to get back there again!

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?

Sliding Around

Life Moves Fast – Time To Slow Down

I’ve really enjoyed these past couple of photos because they remind me that time just moves way too fast, and that if we take the time to slow down we can see some really interesting things.

Things that are hidden in our mad rush to get from one place to another as fast as possible, and from trying to fit as many unimportant things in to our lives as possible.

So this weekend, slow down, take a deep breath, have a look around and enjoy yourself.

Stationary Motion

Hi Everyone,

For me there is just nothing like standing there and watching the ocean move around stationary objects.   It looks like the ocean isn’t doing the rocks or other things any damage but we all know that the ocean always wins.  Every time!   Its also just so relaxing listening to the waves crashing onto the rocks and then listening to it sliding back off the beach.   I could seriously watch and listen to that same motion all day long.

In Sydney I used to live right on the beach and it was great being able to leave the windows open each night and let the ocean sing me to sleep.  I remember that I used to sleep so deeply each night.   In the Navy the ocean used to rock me to sleep all night though in the Southern Ocean she could be a bit rude and would throw me out of bed when I least expected it.

So where am I going with all this?   Its simple, I’m just obsessed by the ocean.  I hope you guys enjoy the photo.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Cottesloe Beach

Hi Crew,

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend.   Have I jumped on the black and white bandwagon with this shot?  Certainly not!   I see things in colour and in the past have converted the odd photo to black and white when the composition and light was good but the colour wasn’t.

In this case though I always saw this Cottesloe Beach shot in black and white for some reason, perhaps its because of Brett Morgan’s latest photos.  Either way I’m glad I saw this one in black and white as it really works.  Now should I rock Mark’s boat and do a third post for the day?  I think so.

Thanks,

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

Miles and Miles

Miles and miles of ocean.  I love it.   This is the most enjoyable form of photography for me.   Flemming has his wide open spaces and me?  I’m addicted to the Ocean, distant, desolate beaches with just me and the ocean.   Nothing more to say. :-)

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson
