I went down to Wyadup today with Ian Wise.
With a solid 3m swell down south today there was an awesome amount of sand and water moving around, which made for some interesting slow ND shots.
I really like taking in the power of Mother Nature on days like this.
I am putting together a range of Kimberley images for a client at the moment and ended up reworking this image from a True North Kimberley trip in 2011.
Pretty happy with the result and I am sure the client will be as well!
We had a range of sunsets and cloud build up during our time in Vanuatu, but one thing that remained a constant was that the build up around sunset had these large billowing white clouds building up out of nothing in the last hours leading up to Sunset.
This shot somewhat typifies what we were seeing over that time.
There was a long board competition yesterday at a local surf break called Isolated…which is where I learned to surf actually.
So I wandered on down to watch some of the veterans at work and was also pleasantly surprised to see a couple of classic old cars as well as veteran surfers down there!
Geordie Bay is possibly one of the prettiest bays at Rottnest and when it turns it on….stunning!
Saturday evening was one of those nights!
These golden colours appeared just at Sunset at North Cott whilst on a shoot with fellow Photogs, Jamie, Peta and Greg.
I ventured out to watch the subsiding storms do their thing this evening and chose North Cott as my destination.
Funnily enough, this is my first shoot at this location, even though it is a favourite amongst photogs.
As it turned out I met one of the photogs out there tonight, who I only knew on line and that was Tristian Jud.
We managed to get a few shots away in-between showers, but also managed to get very wet in the process!
I am down South at present staying with friends. Had my first surf back after a carpal tunnel op and then snuck out to a very secret spot for a sunset shoot.
Awesome way to end the day and what a cracker day we had down here today!
Gotta love Autumn!
Peta North, Nigel Gaunt and myself went out for a sunset shoot this evening with a budding model looking for some experience.
Our model was the lovely Michelle who did a great job and the conditions turned it on for us as well.
The other reason for the shoot was to give me an intro into Nikon as my new Nikon kit will be coming soon.
Yes, that is right, I have decided to go for the D800E as I think this camera has everything I have been looking for in a camera. There are 2 Canon images in this mix and 2 Nikon images.
More images from West Papua.
There is nothing like the tranquility you experience in places like these up near the equator!
