Christmas With A Spool Photography Print

Well another year is about to end. One where I found myself spending many hours waiting for the light, so many times at remote locations, sometimes very hot and other times bitterly cold dark places where the thought of the local wildlife freaked me out on more than one occasion.

From the Banks of the Swan River on a hot and very humid evening to climbing in complete darkness lost down a steep ravine with every sign of spending the night in the bush using only body warmth to keep you warm (special thanks go out to Jamie and Kirk – thank god I found the way back as I did not want to be the meat in that sandwich) to waking up at 4am to a foot of snow covering the car and a long drive on icy black roads at 12 mile per hr straight UP to Emerald Bay just to catch first light.

Cold, sometimes windy beaches or piers, slippery wet steep long trails to visit a waterfall in Yosemite National Park or lakes with bear scat to remind you that you’re just a visitor – they live there! It has all been extremely enjoyable yet challenging at the same time and I would not change one moment of it especially when you just know you have captured “that shot”, some of which I have waited years to take.

So with many locations visited, shots taken and the site finally up and running I thought it was time for a Spool Photography kinda Christmas with 1 lucky person receiving their choice of 1 large 45 inch print presented on a flat aluminum backing ready to hang.

All you have to do is visit SpoolPhotography.com. Spend some time looking through the images in the galleries and choose your top 3 images in the galleries.  

With 1 being your first choice, 2 your second and 3 your third. 
Then email me your chosen top 3 to info ( at ) spoolphotography dot com

Bunker Bay Western Australia

Sunrise over Bunker Bay in Western Australia’s Cape Naturalist region.

Early one morning last week I found myself witnessing an amazing sunrise over one of Western Australia best beaches. With virtually no one around I spent the next hour or so working my way from one side of the beach all the way up and around the to the bay area taking photograph after photograph. This area in very close to Dunsborough has so many gorgeous beach landscapes to photograph that I am sure I will be back many many times.

Western Australian Contos Landscape

Here is the first image I have had a chance to get stitched up and processed from last weekends shoot down around the Western Australian South Coast Region of Dunsborough.

This landscape image is a 6 image stitch taken at the rocks area of Contos. Contos Beach is a popular surf beach near Margaret River, Western Australia along the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.
