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.

Sunset Over Darwin Harbour From East Point

It’s been hot and we haven’t had any rain to help temper the humidity of the wet season so by the time I got to this location I was soaked in sweat! Before I arrived at this location I had been in an area shielded from the breeze but as soon as I stepped out of the car here I was met by the cool breeze coming off the water and the promise of a beautiful sunset. This part of East Point can be difficult to photograph, it’s a great place to watch the sunset but it can be difficult to find foreground-background compositions that I like to use. Luckily, I have been here before so I used some tried and true compositions as well as experimenting with some new ideas as the light faded away for the day.

East Point Cliffs Glowing At Sunset

Took my first trip out for 2016 last night and the sunset did not disappoint. Unfortunately, I was in the wrong place! I was hoping to get some good shots of a group of trees that become submerged at high tide (I might post these images later) but at the sun dipped below the horizon I could see a band of cloud that I knew was going the light up so I scrambled back to the car to get to a different location. I was right but this particular sunset was very difficult to shoot because the clouds with the nice pink colour were up very high so it was hard to get foreground features composed with it.

Later, all that was left was a faint flow on the horizon and this painted the cliffs at East Point in a very warm light which you can see here.

Gerlache Strait, Antrctica

I thought I’d take break from all the images of warm sunsets over Northern Australia beaches and look through some shots from my Antarctica trip in 2013. Talk about a different environment! I found an image that I had always like and done some processing on but I had never released it before. After a few adjustments I made a print and was really impressed by it (I might make a bigger print soon). I still remember the day that I took this, the crew opened up the forecastle of the ship while we were sailing to our first activity of the day. This was a great place to shoot from compared to the upper decks because it was a lot closer to the water  and gave a different perspective. We were a long way south by now and there was pack ice everywhere, only a few people came out to the forecastle so all was quiet as we inched our way forward. The stillness was only broken by the odd sound of ice scraping against the hull of the ship. Despite how it looks, it was very cold – the breeze plus the movement of the ship added to the chill but I was prepared to brave the conditions !

Patterns In The Sand

I got a pretty good response from my last image on social media so I’ll post a shot taken with the same concept in mind but at a totally different angle! Here is one of the more repetitive patterns along Casurina Beach in Darwin.

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.

Been playing around with some images to get smoother tones and details…

Orange Sunset At Darwin Beach

Clear, cloudless days mean boring sunsets, right? In the NT you can get these but you can also get really vivid displays of orange, yellow and red after the sun has dipped below the horizon. I used some of the large boulders on Vestey’s Beach to frame the action of the water against the rocks.
