Tranquil Reflections At Meelup Beach

meelup beach landscape seascape photography tips tranquilty

Hi Everyone,

I was fortunate enough to duck down south for the weekend and just chill out.   In between having lunch with some good friends on Saturday and Melissa and I having the most awesome dinner at the Food Farmacy I managed to catch this shot at Meelup Beach.   It was such a magnificient morning and I had the beach all to myself.  🙂   The colours in the water were absolutely amazing, when Meelup Beach has blue water, it has really blue water!   Its a landscape and seascape photographers dream.   Just think in another two months time this place is going to be plastered with people and almost impossible to photography no matter how early or late you turn up.

Camera Settings
Aperature – F22
ISO – 50
Shutter Speed – 5sec

What places do you guys normally get to shoot, that will be covered in the summer tourist crowd shortly?   

Thanks for stopping by and commenting,

Jamie Paterson

      Hi Chloe,

      Thanks for the comment as always. I’ve updated the post with my camera settings for the shot. Too wimpy to head to the beach in winter? 😉

    Brilliant, Jamie. Beautiful sunrise and great colours. You’ve brought out the best of Meelup in this photo!

      Hi Beau. Wow. Thanks for the great comment. It was certainly a really nice morning to be out and about. It rained for the rest of the weekend.

    Beautiful shot Jamie, personally I would rather be at the beach in Winter than getting fried on a 40deg day with the hoards.

      Hi Andrew. I’d settle for an hour at 28 degrees, but certainly don’t want to get fried at 40 degrees.

      Hi Clint,

      Thanks for stopping by, you definitely should head down there before the crowds kick in. Got your filters yet?

      Hi Stephen,

      Thanks for commenting. Yeah the blues really struck me. Not as good as the Stirling Ranges though!!! I want to head down there again.

    Mate, a cracker of a shot…it could be somewhere tropical given the feel.

    I shot a wedding on the rocks at the back of the image about a year ago and yep, had to contend with a million other beach goers at the time.

      Hi Graham,

      Thanks for the comment mate. I love Bunker Bay, but I love Injidup a lot more.

    Nice work Jamie,

    A different perspective of Meelup than has been done before!
