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 …

Waterfalls In Tasmania

While I guess there would be 1000′s upon 1000′s of waterfalls in Tasmania on my last visit I was able to photograph just a couple and really only one with decent conditions. The small falls at the back of a short hike through and past another more photographed falls. Tasmania has some of the best landscape scenery for photography in Australia. I loved the diversity that was presented at every turn

I took several different perspectives view of these falls but I think I like this one the most. While the water was more than kind of cold it was freezing being the end of winter, one had to get in for the right point of view. This image has taken some time to finish as I have been stuck on a couple of things about this image for some time … I think I can safely say I have completed this image … next :)

 

Thanks to all those that are now reading this blog … we have jumped considerably in traffic numbers to around 350-500 per day … Once again thanks for your support … cheers Neal

Seasons Flow

What you say two posts in under 24 hours … I know posts have been few and far between but in all honestly I really have not had too much exciting new stuff to post. Now after completing a few location shoots I will have some new postings again as I have many new australian landscape images to share with those that follow this blog …

Here is a recent image taken from the top of a waterfall looking down … Quite and interesting point of view and one I very much like …

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 …

3 Sisters Blue Mountains

The 3 Sisters are a rock formation in the Blue Mountains of NSW Australia. Located at Echo Point they are 922, 918 & 906 metres tall or around 3000 feet above sea level.

This image was taken last winter on a very cold and dark morning. Waiting for the sun to rise I was hoping the sun would provide the right light between the 2 large rock plateaus and the 3 sisters.

I was rewarded for the cold early start with a stunning sunrise over one of Australia’s Iconic National Landmarks. The 3 Sisters At The Blue Mountains.

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

Western Australian Beaches

With all the nice light around currently due to the warm humid weather, give me New Orleans/ Cairns weather everyday of the week, I have been out a fair bit shooting a variety of locations this past week or so.

One of the locations I have shot recently was 3 or 4 beaches around Perth with varying results. Some shot during the day to capture those stunning wispy white clouds and turquoise waters and others taken at or before dawn or sunsets.

Heres a little image taken during one of those golden sunsets we had last week here in Perth, Western Australia.

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.
