North Cottesloe Last Light

australian photographer, seascape photography, australian landscapes, north cottesloe, australian landscape photography

Well its no secret that North Cottesloe is my metro version of Injidup Beach.   No matter how many times I think I’m going to shoot somewhere else I nearly always end up here.  Not sure why, there are plenty of other great beaches, but this one just has the ‘x factor’ for me.

Great little waves, great rocks and quite often I can get really close to the action without getting too wet, which I like to do.

This is a really simple composition but as we are all learning, quite often less is more.   I hope you all enjoy it.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

North Cottesloe Waves

Last night I decided to hit Perth metro beaches. I was determined not to end up at North Cottesloe beach as I had shot it so many times before, but as usual I ended up at you guessed it…… North Cottesloe. I do love it down there.

The rocks and their formations are simply awesome and you can stand right out on the edge of them without getting too wet, though I did cop a soaking last night.

For me one of the best things about winter is that the North Cottesloe magic that has been hiding all summer is revealed. Exquisite rocks that were covered by sand are now exposed and facing the full force of the ocean after spending almost six months in hibernation, protected by a blanket of sand.

Winter would have to be a seascape photographers best friend.

Thanks,

Cable Beach Sand Patterns

Has it really been almost a week since I’ve left Broome?   Its been such a crazy and busy week that I still haven’t sat down and looked at all my photos from Broome just yet, but you can bet I will be checking them out this weekend.   Its always fun checking out photos from a trip, not only because of the fact that you’ll hopefully be able to create some great images, but also because it helps you reflect on what an amazing place you have just visited.

Cable Beach for me was just so awesome.  I could easily spend all Winter up there and just shoot her many moods.   It was fun to watch so many people having so much fun and it really did seem to be an integral part of the town, life really seemed to revolve around it.

Anyway, onwards and upwards as they say.  Time to start planning even more amazing trips to far away and exotic places.   Has anyone else been to Broome?

Stormy Weather

Hey Crew,

As we all saw, today was always going to be an epic day for photography.  I was just bursting all day to get out and about and once the boys went to bed I headed out.  After trying to work out where I wanted to be for ages I looked at the weather radar on my iPhone and saw that the storm was going to hit Rockingham first.  So I headed down to Rockingham and I struck gold.  The clouds were heavy with rain, yet there were still breaks in the clouds to allow the sun to peak through.

Did anyone else manage to get out and capture the storm?

Thanks,

Jamie

Moody Injidup

I promise this will be my last photo of Injidup Beach for awhile!   It just blows me away that within a few minutes and within a few meters of the same spot I was able to capture a number of distinctly different moods from this place.

I hope you guys all have a great weekend.

Port Beach Sunset

Hi Everyone,

Hope you’ve all had a great weekend so far.  This is a shot that I managed to get whilst out shooting with Mark last week.  It was such an intense and magical sunset, in fact probably the best I’ve seen in a long time.

It was one of those sorts of sunsets where I actually stopped shooting for a few minutes so that I could just take time out and enjoy it.   One the way home Mark and I stopped off and tried out another location that promises to provide us with a couple of great photos, unfortunately the light wasn’t right on the night but stayed tuned.  I’m sure either Mark or I will return there soon to have another crack at it shortly.

 

Thanks for stopping by guys,

Jamie Pateson

The Basin

I’ve been lucky enough to have spent the past four days at Rottnest and its been pure bliss.  Sure we had a few fronts come through with lots of rain, but they never lasted long and we pretty much had the island to ourselves.   I was staying at the Bathurst villas at Rottnest so it was a short little walk to the Basin for me via Pinky Beach.

On this particular night there was a stack of rain heading my way, it was heading towards the island really slowly so I thought let’s get the camera out and see what happens.   As it happens it was a good call and the result was pretty awesome.  I managed to grab this shot on the first night and have had to wait for four days to be able to process it.   Talk about testing ones patience!

I hope you guys enjoy it,

Reflected Oceanicity

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

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
