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.

 

– Jindalee Showers –

_MG_4319-Edit-2-Panorama
Autumn is in full swing throughout the south-west. We have a mixture of warm days and cooler nights now, and thankfully the showers are starting to return.
Last night while in my backyard I saw a large dark rain cloud over the ocean and heading towards the coast. So I grabbed my gear and headed towards Jindalee beach to hopefully capture the rain shower with the colours of sunset.

Yallingup & Margaret River, Western Australia

Yallingup is a small town in the south-west of Western Australia, renowned for it world class surf. This particular weekend was amazing. The swell was up, the wind was offshore, and everyone flocked to the numerous world class breaks the south west is renowned for.

This shot was taken with the GigaPan, its consists of 36 images. 3 rows of 12 photos. Stitched in PTGui, and taken with the beautiful Ziess 21mm f2.8 distagon.

Prevelly
Not only standup and bodyboarders enjoyed the conditions, when the wind turned onshore the windsurfers came out to play off Prevelly.

Cottesloe Delight

CottSunset-_MG_4695
I haven’t shot metro seascapes for a while, and one of the reasons for this was this particular shot. See that big splash of water, yep, that ended up all over my gear.
I am one who takes the upmost care when taking my gear onto the rocks for seascapes, as you can never be too sure. This freak larger set surprised me, and I almost paid the price of my gear being destroyed.

When work calms down a touch, I hope to get back down to the beach, and in particular the SW capes to again capture the beauty Western Australia has to offer.

Dawn Colours


It is amazing how much the light can change in as little as 5 minutes.
Just as the sun was starting to light up the high cloud. That is what we all wait for. Surprisingly it only lit up for about 5 mins. Both of us had to really make sure we had our composition sorted in readiness for the colour.

Northern Beaches Sunset


Having now settled in to my new place, I can be a touch more selective of when I should head to the beach and photograph the sunset. The area is becoming a favourite spot for locals to walk/drive to and just sit down and appreciate the sunsets that Western Australia’s renowned for.

Sunsets

While driving home from footy today, I saw that this afternoons sunset had a great chance to be a vibrant one. I quickly got home, grabbed my gear and headed to the beach. I had a spot in mind, but as expected someone else was already there (mental note, make sure I get there earlier next time).
This spot has some great spots, and I look forward to shooting here again soon.

Mettams Pool

After watching the clouds develop all day, I knew this evening the sunset would be sensational once again. I got in contact with Tom (http://500px.com/TomaszGPhoto), and organised to meet up at Mettams Pool. A place where neither of us of taken photos from before. It turns out to be another great location.
All up and down the Perth coastline it’s near impossible to not be able to find a good vantage point to watch the sunset. All along the coastal dual-use path, people walk, jog and run right along the waters edge. A very popular spot to the locals.

Jindalee Beach III

A few nights ago I revisited my new local beach (I have finally moved into my new place woohooo).
Jindalee is a new coastal suburb located about 40kms north of Perth, Western Australia. We are lucky in Perth as the coastline is incredible, and we get to the chance to experience sunsets like this everyday. It still amazes me that overseas travellers tend to spend most of their time on the east coast of Australia and not venture west to explore this side of the country.

Conspicuous Cliffs #3


I just love this spot, I stayed here for as long as possible. Will have to come back again and get down to the beach to photograph the whole area. The sun hits so many different angles as it is setting.
This particular shot is from the same spot as my previous 2, but I used some different setting on my camera. The photos were taken in a portrait frame, the previous 2 were in Landscape framing.
