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.

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!

Driftwood at Dripstone, Darwin NT

The waves can bring back to the land something that had found its way into the sea but perhaps only for a short period before it is swept back out again. Dripstone Beach, Darwin NT. Australia.

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.

Foam on the sand, Dripstone Beach Darwin.

It’s quite odd to see the ‘beach foam’ this far away from the waters’ edge and the fact that it was sitting there undisturbed by the motion of the waves made it quite interesting. As the sun went down there was so much contrast between the foam and the sand that this scene begged to be shot in black and white. Dripstone Cliffs Beach, Darwin NT, Australia.

Rays Of Light

This beach gets a lot of foot traffic at sunset, it’s a great place to go for a walk – even in the hot wet season there is a breeze that can take a few degrees out of the day. The day that I was there I was lucky to witness these really strong rays of light just after sunset, I don’t really know what caused them and I really struggled to find the right composition for these scene. I think that this image works the best, the footsteps are a gentle reminder that there are a lot of people who have come past this spot but not all of them were witness to this stunning light show.

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.

Can’t blame them for taking a photo of the sunset 🙂

Walking The Dog

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