Lake Clifton Aerial

Recently I have had the opportunity to shoot some aerial around Perth. While I had only ever done one other aerial shoot some year earlier that was complete failure in part to lack of knowledge and seeking advice that led me in the wrong direction.

This time was a lot different. I went up with fixed wing plane with the doors off and I also sort advice from a friend I think is the best there is in the business here in Western Australia. With local knowledge and how to I was primed and ready for the experience. With the shoot lasting just over an hour I managed to come back home with around 15-20 really good images for my efforts, one of which is this stunning view of Lake Clifton and the Thrombolites that line the outer edges of the Lake Clifton.

Large Framed Australian Landscape Images

Recently I had a request for a size of image I do not normal do. The client wanted the image to be a certain size and aspect ratio. After a couple of attempts at finding the right size and ratio we settles on 70 inches by 40 inches. Sending the file off to print I was a little nervous about the size. While everything looked good on the monitors, one still has a little reservation on printing this large until the final product is seen and inspected.

Well after printing I was very happy with the result, and then onto the framing, again nervous about size and type of frame that would be used. Earlier today I was able to see the final product before delivery to the client and I must say the size and scope of the print and subject matter was stunning and while I am always hesitant to pipe up and sing a little praise about my work but this time I will for a change. I think the final product from landscape photography, to the print quality from my printers and framing from the framer Chris at Leamac is as good as anything I have seen before in a landscape photography print and framing anywhere.

The clients final product ….

A quiet sunrise at Apollo Bay

One of the worlds best scenic drives in the Great Ocean Road Victoria. While I have been lucky enough to have traveled it 3 times now I only wish I could do it more often. There are so many nice locations to stop and taken a picture of just take a moment to enjoy the salt air and stunning views and the diversity in types of landscapes is large. One moment inside a rainforest at a waterfall the next at an amazing secluded beach or looking over green lush farms in the many valleys that are in the region. Recently I was asked by a fellow photographer visiting Australia what to look for on the Great Ocean Road besides the Apostles … I left them know about a few of my favorite places in the area and I hope they have come away with some nice images, one that I have seen was very original and nice …

Here is a sunrise shot taken along Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road … A road trip every Australian should try and do at least once …

Hopetoun Falls Victoria

Hopetoun Falls … While a very popular Australian waterfall to hike and photograph, to actually getting a nice shot of these falls is a little harder than I originally thought a year or so ago. With the color of the water and flow of the waterfall dictating what you come away with. Now with a couple of return visits timing was just perfect on my last visit. I am finally happy with how the landscape and water looked for my print of one of Australia’s most popular waterfall landscapes Hopetoun Falls.

Purchasing this image is made easy through the webpage on this site http://www.spoolphotography.com/open-edition/australia_1/hopetoun-falls/

Sand Dunes Western Australia

Well it has been sometime since my last post. In reality I have not really had anything I thought was worth a posting and life has been busy in the real world so the cyber world suffered. But situations are always evolving and recently I have manage to get out on few shoots and now have a few new images of some Australian landscapes that I can share through the blog.

First up is a shot taken a week or so ago spending the night up at some dunes with Mark Stohard. An interesting shoot as we shot both dusk and dawn to very different colours and conditions. With the aftermath of a heavy storm on the friday night it was somewhat calm and still at the dunes. This image is a series of images blended together for colour and resolution. Having produced a few square images in the last 12 months and as I see them printed and framed I become more and more inclined to produce more.

I recently printed, framed and sold a square image from Esperance. After final inspection before delivery to the client I found myself standing back and thinking wow, thats mine and its square what is going on ? …. The final print was a image taken of Lucky Bay Esperance. An image not to dissimilar from this dune shot in tone and simplicity, so I can see myself looking more and more for opportunities to produce square landscape prints

An Overview of Karijini National Park

Bouncing around the top of the gorges one evening watching the light changing and clouds moving in and out of frames I had to settle on location before it all went south. While there was somewhat better clouds behind me I thought the landscape scene lacked a natural glow from the light and thus looked a little flat with so I shot this view from a ridge point vantage point as my primary focus as an overview of the land inside Karijini National Park.

Available in sizes from 12 inches through to 70 inches wide http://www.spoolphotography.com/open-edition/western-australia_2/karijini-national-park-overview/

Merced River Yosemite NP

With the recent overhaul of this website a few new landscape prints have been finally added to there appropriate section within the site.

This landscape print Merced River Yosemite National Park, taken around 18 months ago inside Yosemite National Park is just one of those images. I never added it to the old site and now that I am happy with the way this new revamped site works and functions, it was definitely time to add it to the “Open Edition” USA Horizontal Pano section. Taken on my last morning while I hiked the banks of the Merced River looking for some abstract shots to shoot … I did manage to shoot one abstract as well this morning which can be seen at http://www.spoolphotography.com/open-edition/usa_1/merced-river-yosemite-national-park/
