Cottesloe Beach Golden Sunset

My wife graduated from her second university last week and because she has been studying externally this meant a trip down to Perth for the graduation! I’ve never been to Perth before but with a hectic schedule I only had limited time to take the camera out. I’ve seen plenty of images of Cottesloe Beach before and I didn’t really want to create another cliched image so I stayed on the beach for this image, nice and close to the surf club.

Long Exposure and High Tide at Dripstone, Darwin NT.

It was well and truly dark by this stage but I stayed put for one last exposure. This was taken on the landing of the stairs that you use to get down to the beach, with the sun gone I didn’t have to contend with people walking up and down the stairs and shaking the camera!

Dark, Stormy Sunset At Dripstone Cliffs – Darwin NT

Great clouds on the horizon last night, it was really dark at this stage but I wandered a little further away from the car to find these pools of water on the beach. Love their pattern! Dripstone Cliffs, Darwin NT.

High Tide At East Point

When the tide comes in the trees along the shore at East Point stand in the water for a few hours, cooling their feet off!

Tree Overhanging Yellow River – Kakadu National Park

I booked a sunset cruise on the Yellow River as part of my trip to Kakadu. The good thing about being in the park on a weekday during the off-season? You get the boat to yourself! It also turned out that the tour guide is also a photographer so he was more than happy to move into places that got the best shot. Two hours just flew by, we had some interesting light, great scenery and diverse animals. Here is a shot I really like of the way that the trees interact with the water, there was so much to shoot – there will be more to come!

Ubirr, Kakadu National Park

The visitors guide suggests that Ubirr is a great place to watch the sunset and they aren’t wrong – as long as the clouds don’t move in at the wrong time! What I waited for the sun to set I spent time photographing the rock art in this area and looking for interesting landscape compositions. This area really came alive about an hour before sunset when the sun poked its way through the clouds to cast a soft, warm light over the area. I took some shots of this very dynamic rock with equally dynamic light upon it and I’m very happy with the outcome.

Light Orange Rocks On A Blue Beach

As the sun set on Casurina Beach and we moved into ‘blue hour’ I saw a brilliant contrast between these rocks and the sand. The wet sand was reflecting the blue hour light but the rocks were still bright orange. It’s interesting to see how the land changes as the light fades.

Walking The Dog

There’s nothing like the freedom of taking the family for a walk on the beach with the dog.

Casurina Beach Outflow

I’m taking my time with the images that I took last weekend. Normally I am in a rush to process them as quickly as possible but this week I’ve done a few edits then left them sit for a while before posting them up to the web site. Come back to the image  a few days later and make a few more adjustment – and repeat a few more times. There comes a time to stop that though, so here is one image that I knew would be stunning when I took it. I’d been exploring the patterns that the water makes in the sand all afternoon, firstly from afar and then up close. After the sun had set and during the last red glow of the day I hurriedly too a series of shots to make a panorama. I had to work fast because the light was disappearing quickly and the image stitch would not work if I spend too long. I was very lucky not to make a mistake after a busy day but all of the images turned out perfect for image stitching and the camera captured the reflections in the water and sand perfectly.
