Back from a great couple of weeks in New Zealand.
This image is from one of the first couple of frosty mornings at the start of the trip. As the morning sky was starting to light up I settled on this composition with the frozen pond and frost covered trees.
I hope everyone is well
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.
Crawley Boat Shed
Perth. Western Australia
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.
This is 2 images stitched together vertically with the Canon 45mm tilt shift.
Wyadup Rocks, Yallingup. Western Australia
Delving back into some images from my time in the Canadian Rockies.
The light show on this particular morning was extremely intense. The peaks lit up a and a small rainbow briefly appeared. It was a mad rush to get to this nearby location and find a composition I was pleased with before the show was over!
Ha Ling Peak, Albert. Canada
With a change in weather last week it was great to get out with the camera. I absolutely love this time of the year. Perfect temperatures, still evenings and signs of an increase in swell.
In a recent post on the Luke Austin Photography facebook page I asked for peoples input as to which image I would post next. I requested that they state specific dates within a two year period. My challenge was to take the first responded date and find an image I had shot from that day.
I realised I had not yet posted the image to the blog. So here it is.. August 30 2010… Alaska, Incredible place.
