The storms that smashed the South West of Western Australia over the weekend brought wild, windy and wet conditions. The combination of strong winds, heavy rain and a high tide presented shooting possibilities that don’t come around too often.
Although this image was shot during fierce stormy conditions, the use of a long shutter speed (60 seconds) has resulted in a still, somewhat silent image.
I had visualized this image for a number of years now so it’s good to finally put it in to pixels.

I had fun converting this image to Black and White. The original colour version had quiet subdued blues and greens which I initially warmed to but I couldn’t help but go for a higher contrast black and white treatment in the end.
