Windswept – Lancelin Dunes -Western Australia

Hey everyone, I hope all is well.

Well a few weeks ago I headed up to Lancelin for the evening as conditions were looking promising. This was the first time I had shot an Australian Landscape for quite some time and it felt good to get out there. I scouted the dunes looking for decent lines and compositions, but with the light fading I had to work quickly. I did come away with a few different images but this particular one I thought would suit black and white.

A location such as this is forever changing so you don’t know exactly what you will come away with. I have been back there since and the lines and curves of the dunes were completely different to the previous visit.

Also I have finally got around to creating a Facebook Page so please “follow me on facebook”. The page will be regularly updated with discussion, competitions, new images, new blog posts, my whereabouts and other events. Also if any of you have your own page I will be sure to join. Thanks

    Nicely done Luke!

    Last time I went to Lancelin I thought I was in a Mad Max movie with all the 4wd’s and dune buggies belting around me!

    Hopefully your experience was a little more peaceful!

      Thanks Mark.

      yeah it was actually really peaceful when I was up there. No one around whatsoever. Maybe because it was a howling SW wind.
