Western Australian Sunset Beach Prints

A view from the beach not far from where I live. Taken a few nights back. We have been experiencing some rather nice sunsets and sunrises in the past week as we do at this time of year before the winds dry out in the height of summer and we are let with less that reasonable sunsets.

I usually have a lot of trouble producing images from a beach scene as stitched images, especially when there is little or no dominant factors in the image to pull the images together, but this time it seemed to work flawlessly, must be the texture in the clouds that helped as this was a 3 image stitch that lined up perfectly first go.

This image will be made available as a Fine Art Print in the “Open Edition” section of Spoolphotography.com in the coming weeks.

If you would like to purchase a fine art print of “Indian Ocean Beach” before then please contact myself through the contact form listed on the site. This image will be made available in sizes ranging from 12 inches long through to 75 inches long, as well as any custom size you wish. I think this image would be best printed on a hi gloss media like Fuji Flex.

Cottesloe Beach Pylon

The famous local Pylon at Cottesloe Beach. Really not sure why this Pylon is so close to the beach or what purpose it serves these days as it was built in 1936 and is the last remaining feature of the shark proof fence that once lay 80 meters off the beach. I think it has more historical value than anything else and has been used in several inter surf club practical jokes over the year. In 2003 I read that is was deemed a heritage landmark.

Well this is how I see the Pylon a Cottesloe Beach. I’m glad it is still there even though it is starting to look very weathered and worn. Its nice to see some things remain in Perth from yesteryear with so many historic sites now bulldozed since the 1980′s.

Cottesloe Beach Western Australia

This week I have added a few new images to the Spool Photography Galleries. The first being a limited edition image of Western Australia’s Premier Beach, Cottesloe Beach. Located just 20 minutes outside the City of Perth, Cottesloe Beach has many restaurants and cafes along its strip to enjoy an early morning breakfast while the sun rises from the east or dinner and drinks while watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean. An extremely popular beach year round, the beach has lights for those long warm evenings on the white sandy beach.

Here is an image I took around a week ago at sunrise, my favorite time of the day at Cottesloe Beach.
