Approaching Storm - Burns Beach - Perth - WA (3x2C0171)
A slightly different angle to that in the shot titled "Low Tide" at Burns Beach. I liked how the sun only managed to light up the base of the clouds like a fire within the eye of the storm. Once again the interesting rock formations add to the shot, that absolutely pops in black and white.
Amazing Greens - Burns Beach - Perth - WA (3X2C41)
Late one afternoon I ventured down to Burns Beach in the northern suburbs of Perth. It was low tide and what amazed me was the almost glowing bright green fine sea weed covering all the exposed rocks like a carpet. The stunning sunset was a bonus.
Boat Ramp - Quindalup - Dunsborough - WA (3X2C5751)
One of my favourites. Had to get up very early to be in position for this image of the Quindalup Boat Ramp near Dunsborough in the South West. Managed this shot as the sun rose in the distance in between boats and other photographers.
Cape Naturaliste - South West - WA - (3x2C3478)
Shot near Windmills on the South West Coast, a good surfing spot on Cape Naturaliste. Almost got washed away more than once here due to a 5m swell from the approaching storm.
Pretty funny looking back on it, but not at the time grabbing your gear and rock hopping as fast as you can to get out of the way of 15ft of white water. Got nailed a couple of times and ended up waist deep more than once.
Can just read the headlines now…. Photographer swept out to sea by king waves….
Castle Rock Beach - Dunsborough - WA (2x3C3672)-595
Great cloud formation for an early morning sunrise shot.
This is a multi image wide vertical stitch.
Loved how underneath the cloud lit up purple for a short duration creating some great contrast. It’s amazing how quickly the colours change and this has me running around trying to reset from vertical to horizontal format between image captures.
Meelup Beach Sunrise - South West - WA (2x3C2542)-2
Early morning sunrise at Meelup Beach near Dunsborough on the South West coast of WA. Got up nice and early only to be confronted with a cloudless sky. That's the breaks with sunrise photography, Its often pitch black when you arrive at 4:30am.
Old Jetty - Jurien Bay - WA (3X2C1368)
The old wooden jetty at Jurien Bay approximately 2 hours north of Perth. Unfortunately the sunset didn't co-operate that night, however the glassy calm water and peaceful surrounds made up for it. Taken well after the sun had disappeared below the horizon.
Round Boulder - Moses Rock - South West - WA (2x3C1981)
Looking towards Moses Rock from near Honeycombes beach in the South West of WA.
I liked the round boulder in the foreground and the exposed reef flat to give the pic some interest. Moses rock is in the background on the right.
Storm Front - Cape Natualiste - SW - WA (2x3C3462)
3x2 Standard Format. Swirling waters around the rocks in a 5m swell as a storm lashed Cape Naturaliste on the South West Coast. The Angry sky was constantly changing from bright purple to a dark scary grey. Nature at its best.
Long exposure shot to capture the movement and mood of the moment.
Windmills - Cape Naturaliste - South West -WA (2x3C3445)
Storm skies lit up by the setting sun at a place on Cape Naturaliste within the South West of WA called Windmills.
Here the waves cascade over a rock ledge in the back ground and then swirl into the foreground rock pool.
Smokin - Yallingup - WA (3X2C8057)
A light offshore wind feathers the lip as an inviting barrel breaks unridden at Yallingup in the state's South West. A few hours later I was out there!
