My version of the Super Moon tonight

mount-henry-st-full-moon

I thought I’d set out somewhere different this evening to shoot the Super Moon and not the traditional Kings Park like I am sure most would have headed to.

Initially I thought I had failed the mission as there were cool clouds over the city and none where I was and I had a reasonably strong offshore heading into me.

I decided to stay put in any case as one of my rules of photography, is make a plan and stick to it.

Well…the wind died down and the moon came up…not to mention the clouds moved down!

All in all not a bad capture I think!

Australia Day Rotto Style!

Australia Day 2013

It’s been a sensational weekend here at Rottnest this Australia Day weekend and I have selected this photo as one that I think typifies the Aussy day experience at Rottnest.

Full moon rising and a light sea breeze closing the day out with a boat coming back through the channel markers with 4 Aussy flags off the aerials.

Stairway to Rocky Point

We had some sensational weather down South today. This morning I did a run out to Rocky Point and got some inspiration to come back there for a sunset shoot and then had a double bonus of a full moon setting over the water.

With a building swell I was also able to capture some nice little waves coming in.

So, the final scene that came together was Full moon setting, stairway to the moon, a peeling left hander and some sweet light.

Nice!

Stairway to the Moon

The statement, ‘Stairway to the Moon’ evokes a lot of emotion and often fond memories of places like Broome where the moon reflections on the mudflats create a stairway of light to the moon.

When I saw this statue on the weekend, it certainly evoked some intrigue within me and off the back of that intrigue, I played around and created this composition.

To me the little guys are on a mission to get somewhere…and why not shoot for the moon!
