Cable Beach

I really need to get back up to Broome again and capture some more of these sorts of sunsets.  I wonder what it would be like during summer, the storms would be absolutely amazing.

Of all the great shots I have taken this year, they were all from Broome.  I just seemed to click with the place, but from what I hear I’m no exception. Everyone seems to have their own personal Broome Time story.  What is yours?

Thanks,

Stationary Motion

mandurah, sunsets, beach, australian landscape photography, australian landscape photographers

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

Como Jetty Tones

Como Jetty, australian landscape photography

Hi Everyone,

How awesome is weather that we’ve been having at the moment?   On Friday evening I thought I’d go for the tourist shot of Perth from the South Perth foreshore and once I got there I managed to spot a few good angles that I thought would be good at sunset.  It soon became apparent though that Mother Nature had other ideas and that the action was going to be elsewhere.

I hopped back into the car and headed across to Como Jetty to capture the sunset there instead.  Its funny because as I was driving down the freeway on my way to the city I had looked at the Como Jetty and said to myself that is the spot for tonight but I still continued onto the Perth foreshore.   It just goes to show that you should listen to your gut feeling!  Instinct is a powerful tool.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!   Now its time to hit the beach to see what I can get.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Blackwall Reach Boats

Blackwall Reach near Fremantle would have to be one of my more favourite spots on the Swan River.   Despite all the boat traffic going by its actually a very peaceful place to be.   Its also a pretty cool spot to go diving as there are stacks of boats sitting on the bottom here, bikes are down there and I’ve even found the remains of an old truck down here.

If you’re into prawn diving this is one of the best spots in the Swan River to get them.  Normally they are between 9M and 14M of water and on a good night you could easily bring in a kilo of prawns.   Perhaps one of the best things about this area is that its full of seahorses just below the surface.  I could almost guarantee that if you went for a snorkel or dive around here you would find at least one seahorse.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend.  I certainly did.

Thanks,

Drama At The Basin

The Basin, Rottnest Island, Rotto, sunset, australian landscape photography, australian seascape photography

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,

Point Walter Sunset

Hi Everyone,

Well I was lucky enough to be out and about like Markie Mark and Col of Birds Eye View Photography were on Saturday evening and managed to grab a few shots of the awesome sunset.   What a sunset it was, it was so colourful and it just lasted forever, I was shooting for at least 20mins and even had time to sit back and watch the view as well.   This place is called Point Walter and on a good day you can actually walk right out into the middle of the Swan River.  Pretty cool.

The sunset was that intense I had to use a couple of filters to try and stop it from overpowering the foreground!   All in all it was a fantastic evening and hopefully we’ll have another one soon.

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Hi Crew,

Its been a tough week at work and on Friday afternoon I decided to head out for a shoot at late notice.  I wanted to shoot somewhere that was new but not too far from home.  I remember that Mr ‘Stirling Stephen Williams Ranges’ shot a jetty near my house so I decided to head over there quickly and fire off a few shots to see what I could come up with.  I was surprised that after living near the Canning River all my life I’d never seen this jetty.

Camera Settings:

Aperture – F22

ISO – 50

Shutter – 5secs

I hope you guys enjoy the photo.  It was certainly nice taking the photo and watching the sunset.  The only thing missing was a beer in my hand!!!

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Caught In A Moment

Hi Everyone

Don’t you just love it when a shot comes together?   I headed out and about on Friday afternoon as I just needed some of that good old outdoors fresh air.   After walking up and down the beach I saw this scene unfold in front of me and I just knew I had to capture it.   I started shooting on the beach but before I knew it I was knee deep in the water with my tripod on either side of the crack and I was just enjoying the moment.  Is there anything more satisfying than being outdoors when the sun is setting?   Its hard to beat isn’t?

Hope you all had a great weekend,

Stranded in Applecross

applecross perth australian landscape photography sunsets

A few weeks ago I was on my way home from work.   I looked across the river from the train and saw this boat lying on the river bank and I thought it was a great subject to try and capture.   I also had a funny feeling that the sunset was going to be fantastic!   Its sunsets like these when its a real privilege to be a landscape photographer, these colours haven’t been saturated in Photoshop in any way, it was definitely an amazing sunset.  We get to capture the moment forever and let people see it time and time again.   Its all good fun!

I hope you guys all managed to capture some great photos over Easter.  What did everyone get up to?

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Perth Summer Sunsets

Perth Sunsets Western Australia Australian Landscape Photography

Hey Crew,

Don’t you just love hot balmy summer nights that produce killer sunsets?   I took a drive down to the Swan River a few nights ago and managed to find a parking spot, I couldn’t believe how busy it was.   Tons of people had gathered down at the river to watch the sunset.   Couples were cuddled up together drinking champagne, families were playing cricket in the park and firing up the BBQ, tourists were just watching the sun and contemplating their next stop and then there was this landscape photographer on a mission.    I just love the fact that people get out and about and bond on nights like this one.   If I had the courage I’d love to spend one evening just photographing these people as they enjoy the hot evening.

My 10yr old niece dragged me to this spot a few weeks ago and it struck me as a pretty cool spot to get a photo of Perth.  So the location find has to be credited to my amazing niece Chloe and I dedicate this photo to her.

I’m guessing by now most of you guys will be firming up plans to head out and grab some great photos this weekend.   Is anyone heading outside of the metro area?    I’m heading up to Yanchep Lagoon this weekend to jump into the water and try and get some photos.   These half in the water and half out of the water shots are harder than they look.

Take Care Everyone,

Jamie Paterson
