A windy sunrise at Burleigh Heads

I had set my alarm for 4:50am in hope of capturing decent sunrise at Burleigh Heads.  When my alarm went off and I heard that it was pouring with rain and blowing a gale I turned it off and tried getting back to sleep… no victory today, wide awake and average weather at best damn it.  One of the benefits of living two streets from the beach is that I can see the ocean and get a pretty good idea if it is worth the effort of leaving the house.  I couldn’t see any inviting sky but I decided to go anyway as I had been wanting to work on this stitching business.

This is one of my first stitches with moving water and I think it is pretty good and the sky was also worth the effort in the end 🙂

Tallebudgera Creek Sunset

As I left home to meet up with Gold Coast/Perth photographer Beau Mitchell it began to pour with rain, not the best conditions to be shooting a sunset.  It was still quite overcast and rainy when i got to Tallebudgera, i was thinking that all i was going to get was a wet camera instead of a new image but in the past every time i go home in these conditions the sky goes crazy with the most amazing light.  It wasn’t one of those days with the perfect light you dream of and it was still spitting on and off but eventually the sky began to glow with some nice colour and this is what i came up with… hope you like it.

Exposure – 4 Secs @ F16

No swimming…

I was looking through my old images last night and came across a folder of scans that i never got around to editing, this little sucker was one of those hiding scans.

If you shoot or used to shoot with film/slide you might remember a few years ago Fuji was having trouble getting an crucial element used in the production of their Velvia 50. Eventually it vanished off the face of the earth leaving us with a garbage version of our once beloved velvia which is what this shot of jetty in Hervey Bay was was taken using.

Fuji G617 – Velvia 100

I am undecided on this one so your thoughts would be much appreciated…

Lamington National Park

For most of my shooting life I have always used film and loved it.  I have no issues with digital I just love that feeling you get when you get when you are looking at a perfectly exposed transparency on the light box.  I have resisted using digital for so long but a few moths ago i lashed out and bought the Canon 5D Mark 2 and I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner the results are amazing, the files are big, crisp and full of colour what more could I ask for.

Last time I walked to Elabana falls I got nailed by leaches so after seeing a guy in the carpark with a whole lot of leach marks on his legs I wasn’t that enthused about the next 7km walk.  This time I escaped with no leeches and this 3 image stitch of Elabana falls.

The First blog

Hi and welcome to my blog

World Heritage listed rainforest and some of the countries best beaches all within an hours drive not too bad hey.  The sunny Gold Coast is where I call home and is an amazing place for any landscape photographer to live.  Right now its not all that sunny and the East Coast is coping a battering from ex tropical cyclone Olga.  With the weather being so bad what better time to work on some photos…

This photo was taken just after sunrise last week down at Fingal headland.
