Lightning Over Perth

I love this time of year!

On the way out to our annual True North crew dinner, I saw the clouds developing over the hills, so without hesitation I knew I had to ping them quickly and excuse myself for being a little late.

What a show it put on and the final colours just after sunset were awesome.

After the True North dinner party I came out and found an epic lightning storm had established itself over Perth, so out to Kings Park I went and was equally impressed with the lightning show over Perth City.

I hope you enjoy the images.

Swan River magic

Narrow Swans

The call of thunder is something I struggle to resist and Friday night was no exception!

On Friday evening I heard a big clap of thunder over our house, so I set out in amongst the driving rain to the Narrows Bridge where I could tuck in out of the rain.

As often happens with photography, things didn’t quite go to plan, but I did spend a very pleasant hour or so watching the rain belting down and also watching swans and pelicans playing and feeding in the rain.

I also met another keen photog and Nikon D4 user named Dom, which added to the experience.

So, not exactly what I headed out to get, but something different and a nice experience for sure.

Just like singing in the rain, photography in the rain can also offer rewards!

Perth City Mega St

Perth City Epic Mega St

I had a request from a client for a large image of Perth for a feature wall in their new offices, so I set out this evening to take advantage of the tranquil conditions.

This is a 3 layer stitch of 33 images which ended up being 3.5 gig  of epicness!

At 100% I can see the colour of the seats in the offices!

Perth City Storm Last Night

Perth City Lightning

Well, the light show continues here in Perth with another epic display of Mother Natures wonders last night.

I ended up being joined by quite a few of the boys, most of which came down of their own accord.

It was a fun night out with a fan club behind us getting entertained by our shouts of glee and excitement when we nailed a shot.

A foggy start to Perth this morning

Into the Sun

What a beautiful way to start the day this morning!

I was up earlier than normal this morning and looked out to see pea soup fog out there so I raced down to Bicton Baths and Point Walter to see what i could capture and was not disappointed!

Talk about F8 and be there! I had just focused for a stairway to the sun type shot and a seagull flew straight past the sun…so ping away I did!

All in all a fabulous way to start the day and the results we just as goos as I had hoped!

I hope some of you also managed to slip out for the magic! 🙂

Reflections

Reflections

What a beautiful morning it was in Perth this morning, so I couldn’t resist a quick ping on the way to work.

The theme of the morning was definitely reflections as the river was an absolute mirror…hence the title.

I therefore decided to do an artistic version of what I saw this morning.

A little different and I hope you all like it!
