A Winters Sunrise

First up thanks once again to all those nice people that have purchased a print from myself over the last month, its folks like you that keep this site alive and enable me to venture out and capture those moments we are sometimes in our busy lives just too busy to see.

My next up to blog is a simple image I took in the winter of 2010 between winter storms along the southern coastline of Western Australia. I chose a square composition for this shot as i had taken plenty of panoramics of the area and was looking for a more intimate shot of the location …

Now available on the website “A Winters Sunrise” in many sizes or email/call me for your custom size requirement …

Queensland Beautiful One Day Perfect The Next

Not much wrong with that saying. While I have visited Queensland many many times over the past 20 or so years it only has been in recent years I have taken my time and look at the photography before the vacation aspect of a Queensland break.

This was taken one evening on the way back from visiting a few waterfalls during the day and while the days shooting was not very good due to poor light, the evening was more of a success … A sunset overlooking the Australian Bush looking over towards the Pacific Ocean …

Yallingup Reef

Spent the weekend down south around Dunsborough and met up with mr Mark “True North” Stothard for a shoot Saturday evening and again on Sunday morning … Well we will not talk about Sunday morning as the light was some of the worst there could have been. But saturday night was a little different. What promised to be an inspiring sunset ended up being good without being spectacular.

I have always liked the art by Michael R Nelson and I remember seeing his work for the first time round 1988 on my first trip to Hawaii.  It was always a trip to see his paintings of marine life and the landscape in the same frame from water level, with the colors where so rich. While I was scoring over the tidal pools at Yallingup looking for a composition or two, his work came to mind, which lead me to look more at what was just a few feet from me and to see if I could use that with the sky … So I guess this australian landscape photography is inspired by a hawaiian painter  …

It is always fun and exhilarating to get out there and challenge what you want to see but end up seeing as the light and conditions change, with the result sometimes and appreciation of the time spent not fully apparent till well after the time has passed …

Esperance Western Australia

One of the most beautiful beaches here in Western Australia is West Beach in Esperance. A simply stunning Western Australia landscape. Over the course of a few days I spent in and around Esperance photographing the best beaches of Western Australia, this would up there with the top 2 beaches I found in Esperance and now I have it available as a landscape print up to 70 inches in length.

I would go far as to say that this beach in Esperance would be one of the best beaches in Australia.

Please click the thumbnail below for the full size image sample file.

This landscape print of Esperance is available under “Open Editions” Western Australia

Sydney Coastline Images

While waiting for the impending birth of our first child I thought I would dig up an image I took on my last trip to Sydney, New South Wales. Taken on one of Sydney many rocking coastlines this image is a stitched image with each image I waited for the wave to crash along the rock ledge so when it was stitched it would show each section of the rock shelf with one of the waves that crashed against the rock ledge leading into the dark depths of the Pacific Ocean.

Hope you enjoy the image. It is for sale as a Limited Edition Print under the Australian section of the main site Spoolphotography.com
