Broome Fireworks

landscape photography, broome, seascape photography, australian photographer

I wish I was here right now!   Nice and warm with a nice cold beverage of some description in my hand.   When I took this photo it was a nice 28 degrees with not much humidity.

I must head back up to Broome again soon.   I wonder what sort of sunsets it gets during summer.

To get this shot I used the 17mm TSE lens which is just pure magic and I blended a couple of photos together in Photoshop using some photos that had been taken at two different exposures.  One for the sky and one for the foreground.  I think it worked do you?

Thanks,

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,

Starfish Beach

seascape photography, fremantle, australian photographer, sunset

Hi Everyone,

Well I guess a lot of you will be up at the Avon Descent getting some amazing shots from one of the best Avon Descents in years.  Can’t wait to see them.

I saw a nice little front building up mid afternoon so I decided to head down to the coast and grab some photos at sunset.  I’m glad I did, there wasn’t a lot of colour but it was really moody and lasted for ages.

Though this photo is called starfish beach (because of the two starfish in the bottom of the frame), it felt more like a starfish cemetery, there were literally hundreds of them all washed up on the beach.  I guess the recent storms have thrown them all up on the beach.

Its sad to see but I guess that is the cycle of nature.   If you’d like to see more seascape photography please visit my site.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

North Cottesloe

North Cottesloe has to be one of the best and most interesting metro beaches to shoot, its always so much fun being down there.   In this shot I tried following the movement of the wave whilst also getting some detail in the shot and I’m pretty happy with the result.

To get this shot I held the shutter open for about 2secs and then panned from right to left to capture the waves movement I did that for about 1.5secs and then for the last .5sec just kept the camera still so that the camera would record some of the detail and not totally blur it all.  I’ve being trying to work on a compromise between totally blurred and totally sharp so that the viewer focuses on the movement and emotion within the photo but can still see where the photo was taken.

I think this photo manages to achieve that.

Hope you 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,

Double Rainbow – Injidup

Yep.  Another file that has been sitting on my Mac for about one and a half years, not because I didn’t like it but just because I forgot about it.   I’d been setting up at Yallingup main break for a sunset shoot, but couldn’t shake the feeling that I really wasn’t in the right place.   Something kept telling me to head on over to Injidup Point and I decided to listen and jump in the car with only a few minutes to spare to get there.

As I was driving into the carpark I was presented with this scene.  A double rainbow as a rain shower was passing.   I stopped the car, grabbed the camera and popped off this shot before heading down to the beach.  I’m pretty happy now that I took the shot as I reckon its a pretty cool shot.   The afternoon glow from the setting sun along with the rainbows is just another visual splendor that I’ve managed to experience at Injidup.

Injidup Beach Rocks

Finally!  I made it back to my beloved Injidup Beach, my first trip I think in almost five months.  I must admit I really didn’t use the camera too much, I just strolled up and down the beach and soaked up the atmosphere, and as always it was totally relaxing.

The great thing about Inji is that its always changing.   This time because its the end of summer and because it was a full moon the tide was right out and there was lots of sand covering the normally really big rocks.   Usually these rocks that I’m standing on are being smashed by really big waves and you’d never get a chance to stand on them without being swamped or being swept away.   I love this look but personally I can’t wait until the sand is swept away and we get the big seas thumping against the rocks again.

Did Perth get any clouds this weekend at all?

Thanks,

Fremantle Tug

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a great weekend.  Where did you all shoot this weekend?   Now that the exhibition is over I’ve managed to head out and grab a couple of shots again.   I actually haven’t headed out with my camera in about 5 weeks so I’m definitely a man on a mission.  I headed to Trigg Beach on Saturday afternoon but ended up in Fremantle just before sunset.   I saw this tug that was about to bring in a ship bathed in golden sunlight and it just really caught my eye.

There is something about tugboats, they seem like such hardworking and honest boats that receive little glory for their important role.  Anyway so its not a classic landscape shot but i quite like it and I hope you guys do as well.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

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

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
