Wet Season Grass – Rapid Creek NT

Took the Mamiya RB67 out a few weeks ago for a shoot around Rapid Creek in the middle of the day. This is not usually the best light for photography but I was out during a break in storms so there was some nice soft light. There is a lot of lush green grass at this time of year and this section stood out for the ‘tall poppy’ that shines above the rest!

Dark and Stormy On Dripstone Beach

I just got my film back from the Dripstone beach shoot and there was a pleasant surprise in the negatives. I was really impressed with how dark and moody this long exposure image is! It’s similar to another shot that I’ve posted from a digital capture but there is great feel to this image.

Roots among the mangrove trees. East Point, Darwin.

Down really low, the tripod spread apart so that I can get the camera down close to the roots of the Mangrove trees that are only exposed at low tide. With the sun over my shoulder and behind clouds I could get the light into the tree without my own shadow getting in the way! I had to take this shot quickly though, my knees couldn’t take the crouching for too long and I had to be wary or crocs in this location!

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!

Sunset light on Dripstone Cliffs. Darwin NT Australia.

When the tide is high the water brings in a lot of sea shells but on this shoot it was the first time that I’ve seen the effect that the shells have on the out going water from the waves. These were really difficult to photograph because you’d get set up in a spot to photograph a nice cluster of shells then a large wave would come through and move them all into a different spot! I was really happy with this one shot, especially how the sun was poking through a hole in the clouds to light up the cliff in the background.

Luck With The Weather At Rapid Creek, Darwin NT.

The weather has been all over the place lately, went out today only to have it rain heavily as soon as I drove out of the house! I was luckier on Tuesday, nice clouds and no rain until after I got home again. Did most of my shooting for that outing on film but here is one I took on my digital camera.

Every print will be made personally by me, signed, numbered (for limited editions) and then archival mounted and matted into a standard size ready for framing. As you can read about in my Products page, I take the utmost care to produce a stunning image that will last more than a lifetime.

Lee Point, NT. Limited Edition Print 2016-2136

On the 6th of November 2016 I was out at Lee Point to capture the sunset, I have been there many times before but I had always focused on the water in these outings – this time I was determined to stay away from the water and capture what is further up the beach. There were many Territorians out enjoying the sunset and the cool breeze with their four-legged friends. After an hour or so wandering up and down the beach making a few images I set myself up in this spot waiting for the right light and for some ‘models’ to wander into the scene. As well as the stunning colour that the sunset produced on this day I really love the silhouettes of the people walking the beach. It gives you a sense of the scale of the sky and a reminder that this scene was enjoyed by many people.

This A3+ sized image (16×10.66 inches exact image size) comes mounted on foam core and matted to 20×16 inches. This is a standard size so it is easy to frame!

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.

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!
