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

Miles and Miles

seascapes, australian seascape photography, australian landscape photography

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

Wicked Reef Streaks

Hi Everyone,

I must have lost around 10kgs taking this shot.   In fact I almost felt like Peter Lik!   I had to run out to this spot, slam my tripod down, get a quick focus in and then fire the shot all before the next wave came thumping through.   It was heaps of fun though even if I did cut it a bit fine a few times.    This sort of photography certainly makes you feel alive, though there isn’t much room for error.   I hope the rest of you got awesome shots this weekend.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Simplicity

This is an image I managed to capture a few weeks ago and I’ve been sitting for it for the past couple of weeks trying to work out why it really draws me in.   I finally worked it out.  It draws me in because its just so simple, yet its still effective.   This is another shot that I managed to capture after I was walking away from my original shooting position and was heading back to the car.  Maybe my new technique should be to turn up to my spot, unpack and then immediately repack all my stuff and then start heading back to the car.   It seems to work for me!   :-)

Hope you guys all like it.

Thanks,

Trigg Beach Waves

After hearing Matthew Saul and Mark Stothard talking about how good the surf was going to be on Sunday I couldn’t help myself and headed down to Trigg Beach to watch the waves come thumping through.  Its always heaps of fun and I managed to get a few decent shots as well.  Thanks for the tip you two, is there a better way to spend a Sunday morning?

Imagine being able to fly around the world getting surf shots like this!

Thanks,

Bennion Beach Sunset

Seems like today is the day for posting with Christian and Mark competing for the most amount of posts put up in an hour!   This photo was from last Saturday.   What do you do when its pouring with rain?  Head down to the beach of course.   To get this shot I quite literally had to find a big rock to hide behind and duck out and setup and then shoot in between rain squalls.  I’d usually get a couple of minutes between each rain shower, you could just see the wall of rain coming screaming across the water and you’d have about 30 seconds before it hit and hit hard.

After this shot I decided to head back to the car and get home and stand in front of the heater to thaw out.  Hope you guys enjoy it.  All comments appreciated.

Thanks,

Cape Naturaliste Chillout

Hi Crew,

I got the opportunity to head down south for Friday night so I took it with both arms open.   I decided I was going to head out to Cape Naturaliste and I made it just before sunset and with only minutes to spare.   So I had to quite literally sprint down the track and down the limestone cliffs to get to this beach.  It must have been pretty funny to watch, I’m not exactly the worlds greatest runner!

After catching my breath I decided to try and capture the big waves that were thumping through in the background with these rocks in the foreground.   The waves were just huge and breathtaking to watch.   After all the shooting it was off to Mike Fletcher’s house to feast on an amazing Thai Beef salad that his wife Ali cooked up for us.  Delicious!

Hope you guys enjoy the shot.

North Cottesloe Rock Pool

Hi Everyone,

Last week I headed down to North Cottesloe as I just knew that the sunset was going to go off.  I’m glad I did as the colours were just awesome, a nice orange glow greeted the end of the day.   It almost felt like a mild summer day as people were just strolling up and down the beach, kids were splashing in the water and people were fishing off the rocks.   You just have to love days like this one. I was almost tempted to jump into the water, until I felt how cold it was.  Which just proves my theory, kids can’t feel cold water!

Did everyone have a good long weekend and get heaps of photos?

Cottesloe Beach Groyne

I decided this afternoon to head down to Cottesloe Beach again despite the heavy rain and huge seas slamming into the groyne.   I always knew that I was going to get soaked so I just wore an old jumper, shorts and put my camera into an underwater housing.   I’m glad I did, here is a shot of me just about to be soaked with the spray of a wave hitting the groyne.   It was heaps of fun though the few people who were there looked at me as if I was crazy.  Yes I did get soaked form head to toe.   To be honest it was pretty uplifting being sprayed by the ocean, like new life was being splashed onto me.

Hope you guys enjoy this photo of Cottesloe Beach.

Thanks,

North Cottesloe Sunset

Don’t you just love an awesome sunset in winter?   The colours are still quite strong though not always as intense as summer and the water is always so moody.   I managed to capture this shot at North Cottesloe which if you haven’t discovered it yet is an amazing place for seascape photography.    There is normally heaps of interesting rocks and plenty of waves hitting them as well.  The other great thing about North Cottesloe is that the waves rarely make it past the rocks so you don’t tend to get too wet when taking photos here.

I remember last winter when I was taking shots at Bennion Beach.   It was in the middle of winter and I was taking photos when a rouge wave came thumping through.  I just managed to grab my tripod and hold it above my head before it hit me.  The wave was that strong I lost one of my thongs.   It was so funny, all these people were looking at me when I got back up to the carpark.   I was drenched from my waist down on a cold day with only one thong on!   I did eventually manage to get the other thong back.

What’s the worst thing you guys have lost while shooting?  Hope everyone has a great week this week!
