Nightcliff Beach Outflow

I’ve been in a bit of a slump lately, the rest of life is going well but I haven’t been in the mood for photography. Finally back into it tonight printing off some images and editing this one from the start of February.

Stunning Sunset At Nightcliff, Darwin

When you get stunning colours for a Top End sunset it can last for only a few short minutes. You need to be in the right place, at the right time and a little lucky to catch it! I was set up in this spot all ready and still only got off a few frames before the light disappearred. That’s all you need though.

This image is available as a limited edition print or canvas, please contact me for pricing.

Waterfalls

Another shot from Nightcliff, this time the high tide and swell sends a lot of water up onto the rocks. Perfectly timed shots capture the water falling off the rocks and back into the ocean like a dozen tiny, temporary waterfalls.

Australia Day At Nightcliff

I was expecting large crowds at Nightcliff for Australia day, it’s pretty busy on a normal weekend let alone a public holiday! After about 30 minutes walking around out there I realised why there wasn’t much of a crowd, even with an overcast sky the humidity was very very high and the clouds were keeping the heat in! I’ve never had problems with my lenses fogging before but for this shoot I was wiping them down every 5 minutes.

I persisted because the tide was very high and was crashing into rocks that don’t usually see water so I could get some unique compositions. I shot this particular spot a number of times to get it in different light. I took about 200 frames to see how the water changed each time, it was tough to pick which one to use but this one stood out because of the way the sunset is reflected in the wet sand for just a moment as the water moves back out. I also like the curve of the water at the bottom right corner of the image as well, it frames it really nicely!

Highs from Lows

I’ve heard of artists who created their greatest works during the lowest times of their lives. That’s not me though, I need a lot to align in order to be ready to shoot, process or post images, otherwise I stay staring┬áblankly at a screen with no idea what to do. A few weeks of hard work and a family medical emergency mean that I’m out of the time and energy I need to create something great but I got a quick flash of inspiration tonight. With this inspiration I’ve been able to make a few prints and I found this image – partially processed – of Nightcliff. I got it finished off tonight, just before my personal fuel gauge started to show low again.

Nightcliff Beach Outflow

I’ve had a great time lately, getting out to shoot a lot of different locations and as a result I’ve barely had time to process all the images I think are worthy of production let alone write and post here. So this post will be a short introduction for an image I took of a fantastic sunset at Nightcliff, it’s rare to get a sunset like this during the dry season so I was very lucky that I got there early and saw the sky building over a few hours. After some slow contemplative shooting the sky turned bright pink and I spend a furious 20 minutes making the most of it and the beach. I got a lot of really nice images but this one immediately stood out for the simplicity of the foreground, the colours and the white flow of the water. If only I could find time to make a test print.

Fish and Chips

Last night I took the family out for fish and chips and the sunset at Nightcliff. While we were waiting I snapped this little beauty of the sunset light shining on the cliffs with my Fuji X-E2. This morning I started to edit this image, after trying a lot of my favourite processing techniques I found that this image didn’t really need any processing!

Nightcliff Rocks

For my second shoot in the NT I got out to Nightcliff with Dan Courtney to show me around. The rocks around Darwin have stunning colours and patterns in them which change with the light. After a few obligatory pictures of the Jetty we headed out to capture the coastline as the sun set. The sunset was complex in detail yet subtle in colour and serves as the perfect backdrop to the foreground that I was keen on capturing. Even though it was the first time that I had been to this spot I really feel like I have truly capture the essence of this place.

Nightcliff Rocks

Nightcliff, NT. 2013-1227

I was in Darwin a few weeks ago for work, on one of my rare days off I ventured out to Nightcliff at around 3 PM for a look and to scout a good spot for sunset. I had a great time and found a few places to shoot that sunset. As always, I took a few shots to look at later but didn’t spend long out in the sun – having come from a Newcastle winter I was dripping with sweat from just a little walk! I really liked the white rock formations that have patches of red all through it (didn’t go geology at school so that’s as good as the description as I can give…) and decided to shoot them again with a lower sun angle. I went back at sunset and got some nice shots of these rocks and the cliffs as well.

I originally posted one of the sunset shots of these rocks on Facebook, I kind of liked it but it wasn’t a stunner. Back home and in front of a good monitor again I went through all my shots from the shoot again and started to pay attention to the daytime shot again. With some minor tweaks to reduce the glare from the white rocks I started to really like it. You can spend hours studying the intricate patterns in the rock and its ‘in your face’ whiteness conveys the brilliance of the Territory dry season weather beautifully.

Now available as an open edition print.
