Jindalee Colours

_MG_4667-Edit-Panorama-2

I almost done it again. I was busy at home, and just happened to walk to my back door to have a gander outside. The sunset that was going to occur looked amazing. All the ingredients were there, a decent gap between the horizon and the clouds, the clouds were at a height that were not going to shield any potential colour that may occur. My only issue was time. I turned and raced to my car, jumped in and bolted to the beach. 5mins I was set up and shooting this.
Very lucky indeed, and I say it all the time, but we West Aussie’s are so lucky to live in such a place to witness sunsets like this more often then not.

 

– Pemberton Farmlands –

farmlandpembertonedition31

Driving around the farmlands yesterday trying to get my head around an area that I do not frequently visit, I noticed the clouds touching the tops of the Karri trees, and they even seemed to be seeding from the trees in some places.
This whole area is one I wish to explore a lot more, because in winter the fields turn a brilliant green.

This is a resubmission of an image I posted a few days ago.
Hope you like it.

Summer Sunsets

untitled-(2-of-2)15cm

Clouds graced the skies at the right time last night. I haven’t been out taking too many photos of late, so I was wrapped that I had the time to capture this one.

Another short time-lapse showing the sunset, and this image

Albany Whaling Wrecks


Last week I had the absolute pleasure of shooting with photographer Tina Bartley. I am always in awe of her work. Check some of her stuff out at
katrinabartley.com

This is one of the panorama’s I managed. The ship in the background is an old chase ship used when whaling was being carried out in the area. Long gone have the whaling days of Albany, what is left provides great photographic opportunities . I hope you enjoy this shot.

Perth City #4


I headed to a spot that I haven’t ventured to before with fellow photographer Jay Harmen.
The cloud was in, and provided a good back drop to our great city.
Visually Perth would have to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Sitting on the Swan River it is about to go through a major foreshore redevelopment. Everyone is waiting to see what it will look like when completed.

Perth City

Another photo from last nights trip to the South Perth foreshore.
Click on the image to increase its size.
I wanted to create a Black and White Panorama of Perth including the Narrows Bridge and South Perth Ferry Station. I wanted to create an image that focused on the city itself, to show how gorgeous our city really is. I love living here.

This photo as well as all my photos on this blog are for sale in a variety of sizes. If you are interested please email me at

Piccaninny Creek, Bungle Bungles

Piccaninny Gorge can be accessed from Piccaninny car park on the south side of the very famous Bungle Bungle Range.
Located in the Purnululu National Park a few hours south on Kununurra in Western Australia, the Bungle Bungles are a must see while visiting the top end.
These orange and black striped beehive domes are not seen anywhere else in the surrounding area and are very unique and beautiful. Make sure you get here for sunrise or sunset, as the colour of the landscape changes every minute.
A truly magical place, and I am privileged to have been able visit the spot. A dedicated photography trip is now on the cards so I can really explore the area and capture it.

Approaching Storms

Well not much has been happening in the way of any significant weather in Perth for the past few months that I have been able to capture as I have been away with work. But I did miss a tornado in the northern suburbs, as well as a very severe storm that caused major havoc in the southern suburbs near Rockingham and Mandurah, all the way around the South-West of Western Australia.
So I was a little excited as I got home from work today and checked the radar on a local weather website, to see a fairly dense rain band  approaching.
The radar was showing very heavy rain with a slight chance of some thunderstorm activity.
With this in mind I quickly packed up my gear, bolted to the beach and tried to get a photo of some lightning or at least some type of structure in the system.
Unfortunately the lightning never eventuated and the system fell apart as it was approaching the coast. Needless to say I wasn’t going to head home without getting a panorama for my efforts.

Bells Rapids

After many years of failed attempts to get here, I was finally able to. Today I headed to there to photography the Milky Way with fellow photographer and night sky enthusiast Julie. We planned to meet just after nightfall, but as I had arrived a touch earlier then expected I wandered around and scouted the area. The rapids today were not flowing anywhere near full strength but I could see the definite potential for some fairly gnarly shoots are runs through them when they are flowing stronger after some decent winter rains. The rapids are part of the famous Avon Decent that is an annual watercraft event held in Perth. The course starts in Northam making its way all along the Avon and Swan Rivers into Perth. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the event.
Even if you are not part of the event you can get a great view of competitors as the pass through Bells Rapids from the banks or even from the wooden bridge that crosses directly over them.

Milky Way

Etihad Stadium, Docklands

This weekend I headed to Melbourne with my dad and two brothers to watch the Eagles verse Collingwood, and secondly to see North Melbourne take on Adelaide. I posted a photo from the Eagles match at the MCG HERE.
This panorama is taken from the 3rd Level General Admission area above the playing arena.

Mount Street Footbridge

After taking a few photos of Perth City, my mate Tom (his portfolio can be found HERE) and I decided that we would stay in the city and try our luck at car trails again from the Mount Street footbridge. We were here a few weeks back when the traffic was not as busy and got mixed results. This time we arrived during the peak period.

The first shot is of the bridge itself. I was fortunate enough to have the moon almost in line with the supports.

The second shot is an 8 image stitch that was quite difficult to take. To get a more square image I will have to go back and take a few more photos, but I am very happy with the results I got tonight. I think the curve in the panorama works here.
As I said before we arrived during peak hour so we had no issues with car trails this time around.

Perth City Under Thick Fog

It was very eerie this morning on the Swan River. Forecasted very light winds was the attraction to launch Ralphs boat on the Swan River with friends.
The light winds and a temperature inversion with colder, moist air being trapped on the ground by a layer of warmer air above, created the fog. The city was effectively trapped inside a cloud.
This was taken at 0845 this morning.

Home City


Perth the capital city of Western Australia is one of the most isolated cities in the World. And it doesn’t worry me one little bit. If you do not fall in love with this city from this photo and many others like it then I don’t know what will.
This shot is an eastward facing 10 shot Panorama taken at sunrise from Kings Park.
