Stormy Sunset

With the state awards fast approaching I decided that it was time to go shooting for the day.  Beau Mitchell and I headed south, originally wanting to photograph the border ranges the light wasn’t right so we decided to hit the beaches for something different.  Our trip went from the Gold Coast down through the Tweed Coast to Byron Bay and finally back to the Gold Coast where this sunset shot was taken.

Also my new website is in the final stages of its design and will be released on Monday 29th March.

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 🙂

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…

Cheers  Darren
