Location: Perth CBD

This photo was taken in the early morning as I set out to capture the world starting their work day.

This shot was achieved by using a relatively slow shutter speed and panning with the bike as it crossed passed. I framed the shot prior and waited for the perfect subject to zoom past.

Location: Sugarloaf Rock, Western Australia

This location is well known to many landscape photographers in Australia - Sugarloaf Rock in the south west region of Western Australia. I have posted few photos already featuring this geological formation.

When we travelled there in August, I wanted to look for different compositions from farther out to see if I could work with all the elements that make up this great place. Most of my previous images were taken much closer to the rock, on the granite foreshore all the way down at the sea level. I photographed it from various angles and exposures while working closely with the sea in the foreground but this time I looked around the higher ground to fine something interesting. I was especially keen on using the heath in the composition. There were spots with flowers but I really liked this spot with the bare branches adding something different to the scene. I moved around to see how to included the branches in the scene and this composition seemed to be most balanced and flow the best for me.

Fine evening conditions helped out as well. There was a lovely afterglow on the horizon about fifteen minutes after the sun had set and it was casting nice soft warm light around the area. It gave a touch of beautiful warmth to the green shrubs and the branches without overpowering them with saturation and intensity. I had to take multiple exposures and blend in the sky in post processing, as the dynamic range was just too great to cover in a single frame. There was minimal wind and this spot was quite sheltered so I had no issue with branch movement when blending exposures. This can often cause problems and especially when branches are set against the sky.

Location: Wanneroo, Perth Western Australia

Photo of a parrot out the front of our house taken by my 13 year old Kuepper, with the second hand Canon 350D purchased for 50 and a second hand Sigma Zoom lens.

Having just started photography this semester at school, this is his first foray into using a digital SLR.

He did a great job of framing the shot and capturing the natural colours.

Hopefully many more stunning photos to come.

Location: Kings Park

Shooting in Kings park at dawn when I noticed this old boy, sitting and watching the fog lift over the city in silence no phone, no headphones, no distractions. Just his thoughts and a view. A good reminder to us all to sometimes stop, sit and just be.

The early morning is a perfect time to take photos with no crowds you can really focus on the beach.

Location: South Perth Foreshore

Photo was taken across Lake Hurlingham at the end of Hurlingham Street in South Perth, about 5.15 in the morning. Looks like there is only a tiny strip of land between the lake and the river. In fact, the strip is wider than it looks, with the city lights beyond.
Taken on a Canon 6D with 16 - 35mm lens. Settings were lens at 35mm, 200 ISO at f16 for 30seconds.

It all started off as an idea to shoot a figurine suspended over flames in the shed, it didn't work as planned so I resorted to just shooting flames. I poured some acetone into a dish, set it on fire and shoot it for a while before blowing the flame out.

All was going well until I blew burning acetone out of the dish and onto the floor. Noticing a series of unintentional fires now in my shed, I made the decision to retrieve a fire extinguisher. Upon returning with the fire extinguisher, most of the small fires were out but I noticed the plastic wine glass I had the dish sitting on was on fire and melting. I watched as the wineglass bent and the dish of burning acetone fell off and smashed on the ground.

Now I really had fires! I pulled the pin on the extinguisher and gave it 3 short blasts of dry powder, just enough to put out the fires and coat everything in my shed in a layer of powder.

So I have a lot of cleaning to do but the shots I got out of that session were literally fire.

This Maylands stretch of the Swan River is a personal favourite. Nestled deep in the heart of suburbia, you could be forgiven for thinking you were a million miles from the closet inhabited location. Serene, ancient and mesmerising.

Location: Heirisson Island, Western Australia

My visits to Heirisson Island in the past were focussed on the north shore facing the Perth cityscape. On this occasion, I took a path lest trodden at least by me and found a glorious sunrise over the island's south shore.

Location: Whitford Nodes Beach, Perth, Western Australia.

I had intended to photograph the local Eastern Ospreys at the beach, but unfortunately they weren't around.
My attention was drawn towards a few circling Welcome Swallows which were acrobatically, darting and tumbling through the air. They are amazingly swift birds and to get them in frame let alone in focus requires a lot of skill and a large helping of luck as well.
I set my shutter speed to 14000 second to freeze the bird in flight and my aperture to f11 to give me some margin of error with focus.
It took a lot of attempts but I left the beach with two or three sharp images from perhaps 70 attempts.
I viewed the image on my monitor and I decided to use the negative space in the frame to aid composition, and to give the 'impressionistic' rolling sea some range, to lend atmosphere to the scene.

In the resulting photograph I see a small bird soaring over turbulent water, buffeted by gusts, and hissed by saltwater spray but nevertheless persevering with deft poise and grace.
A lesson for us all perhaps in these troubled times, and looming global tensions.

I was attending the leading lines course with my brother and was trying to keep an eye out on some leading lines. I saw this car in the image coming and saw it matched the walls so took a few pictures and ended up loving this one.

Location: Perth Zoo

Perth Zoos yet to be named baby giraffe is now out in the viewing enclosure. It tended to stay up the back away from the viewing platform and every now and then an adult would walk past and give it a nudge or a lick. Managed to capture this shot which reminds me of a child reluctantly getting a kiss from their grandparent.

The Photo was taken first and foremost to capture the beautiful sunset and to highlight the nice sand and rocks by Trigg Beach.
This photo I chose to apply my creative interpretation of the perfect Sunset and the combination of colors I want to project in it.

Location: Canal Rocks

After shooting down at Canal Rocks in Western Australia earlier in the year I knew I had to come back for another astro panorama. I planned a panorama for 11 September where the setting moon would be behind the rock with the Milky Way core right above the rock. The conditions on the night were near perfect allowing me to get the shot exactly as I envisioned it!

I learned a couple day before of this new sculpture in South Perth so I had to check it out in the morning. At first I couldn't find it I was driving around up and down but when I did I realised it lined up so well with the city.

The foreground of this photo was taken with a ND1000 filter and the stars and person were stacked on with separate layersshots. The stars always incurred thoughts to me. It is good to have these beauties hanging in the sky.
