Mindarie Beach Landscape

January 23rd, 2009 at 8:39am

Another landscape image from the dunes of Mindarie Beach on the outskirts of Perth, Western Australia.

I really like the open spaces in summer of Mindarie Beach compared to most of the other beaches in and around Perth. The wide open sands and shallow waters make for very nice swimming spot north of Perth. In winter the beach erodes quite severely with many rocks exposed and dangerous swimming conditions. In summer it is well worth the trip north to what I think is the best beach within the Perth metropolitan area.

  1. I love your imagery. I’m confused though are your panos shot on a blad or 617, or are they a stitched digital image?

  2. your images are so inspiring, really let us enjoy nature. thank you.

    i see you use canon 5d and the 24-70 lens, but can i ask you how you get such panoramic shots? whatever technique you use, they are amazing and I look forward to seeing new images as they appear.
    thank you

  3. Thanks kman and steve – There is really nothing to special that I do to take these panoramic images. I had ben using the Canon 5D up until early december 08 when I purchased the mark II. They are all stitched digital images, some using a tripod others just by hand. My only real technique would be lots of waiting for the light and overlapping the images by around 30-40% so the stitch has a better chance of coming out clean.

  4. wow, they’re stitched? Are you just stitching them with photoshop?
    I’m amazed and now think that this is a much cheaper option than buying a wide lens for my entry level slr.

    Do you have a panoramic lens or are you just using a normal one?

    Beautiful photography, really ingenious use of the watermark too, blends in nicely managing to keep the beauty of the picture in tact.

    I’m going to go look at some more posts now :)

  5. Thanks Kate. Yes all the panoramic prints are stitched images. I use either CS3 or PTGui for that process. My current lenses are the 24-70 and 70-200 by Canon. I would like to soon add a 50 f/1.2 lens to my camera bag.Most of the images are taken at a focal length of around 50mm depending on scene. I tend not to shoot under 35mm though as stitching can be a problem at this focal length.

    Cheers for stopping by
