Milky Way over the Pinnacles Desert

Single shot for the sky and single shot for the foreground.
The Milky Way rises on the opposite side of the sky at this stage but it was cloudy so I made this composite with the Sky from the night before taken in same place.

I took this picture around 7.15 am, on a fine day.
I need to climb rocks to get this angle, please be extra mindful to choose rocks since some are loose and slippery.

I wait for a good big splash coming from the sea to get the maximum flowing sea water coming out from between rocks.
I use Fujifilm GFX 100s with 45-100mmf4 lens, ND filter,11 aperture priority, 100 ISO.

I shot this location 3 times early morning, midday and sunset. They are all good.

Glorious sunset over one of the wildflower hotspots in Western Australia on a warm spring day. The sky came alive just after sunset and the combination of fiery tones and beautiful wildflowers was amazing.

Three exposures blended together and processed in Photoshop.

I love the fact that Dunsborough offers sunrises over the ocean. On this occasion, it really put on a show.

I was happy with the sense of motion in this panning image of a stand up paddle boarder but wanted more. A bit of added motion blur took it to an exaggerated level.

Location: Atwell, Perth, Western Australia.

I took this Park at Atwell near the banks of the Swan River.
I positioned myself about twenty metres from the Osprey nest, hoping to catch the male Eastern Osprey returning to its nest after a hunt.
My patience was rewarded after about an hour, when the raptor appeared with a decapitated fish to feed its young.
I was pleased with the image but felt it needed another element, so I added the moon, which has so many connotations, in post production.

CITY OF LIGHT - 50 years after astronaut John Glenn dubbed Perth the 'City of Light', thousands gathered at Elizabeth Quay and the South Perth foreshore to see the spectacle of 300 drones lighting up the skyline with images which sparked feelings of hope and unity, such as this of two hands holding.

A bit of cloud on the horizon promised some colour but a strong breeze and choppy river caused me to re-think the bouncing pontoon. This vantage point provided a reasonable frame and a ghosted boat moored on the pontoon just to emphasise the long exposure.

Location: Margaret River

This ghost tree stood in stark contrast to the greenery around it. It seemed quite alone in the middle of a crowd, bereft of its leaves and camouflage not unlike how many people feel. With a bit of post processing, I wanted to exaggerate that aloneness but also celebrate the beauty of uniqueness.

I captured this image very early one autumn morning and was moved by the ethereal feeling of the moment. With a bit of post-processing, I tried to bring what I was feeling into the image, the feeling of that light we all have behind the veil.

Location: Kingsley

This image was taken in our front garden at 1.48pm on 3 January 2022.
A good friend allowed me to borrow his Nikon 105mm F2.8 macro lens and this was the first time I had used the lens. I was looking for a subject to photograph and noticed the bees in our front garden, so I manually set the camera and moved as close as I could to the subject, focused and took a series of rapid photos in quick succession handheld.
The camera settings were Nikon D750, F5.6, 11600 sec, ISO 640 and post editing was done in Lightroom and Photoshop.

I took this photo in the evening not long after sunset to be able to get nice light trails from the cars but also to retain good detail and ambient light throughout the scene.
I shot a number of exposures to recover the brightest highlights in post processing.
Camera settings for the base photo ISO 100, f11, 30 sec, 14mm.

Early morning on Cottesloe Beach. This long exposure produced the desired results on the sky and water while managing to keep the buoy sharp.

Location: Point Marchant, Bunker Bay, Cape Naturalise

Point Marchant has some fascinating trees, all bent from centuries of the wind, I've taken many photographs down there and always knew there was a really interesting photo in there, but never found it.....Until this time... I've been using the Flood plug-in by Flaming Pear for years and as I looked at the three trees I noticed a symmetry I hadn't seen before and could immediately see them with that plug-in. Beautiful clear blue sky meant a greaty basis for a Black & White conversion.... Was blown away when i started playing in photoshop with it. Camera was my Sony Alpha A7r IVa with the 16-35mm lens....

Location: South Perth foreshore

One of a series I took of the moon rise on 19th Nov 2021 right at the end of the longest lunar eclipse in 200 years. I'd pre-planned the spot the previous day to get the moon rising between the buildings. This one where the moon is sitting perfectly on top of a building like a hat was frankly nothing but a bit of a lucky fluke.
Taken with a Nikon P1000, 500mm zoom, f 5, 160, auto ISO 400.

Location: South Perth foreshore

Taken November 19th 2021. That day was the longest lunar eclipse for the last 200 years and won't be that long again for the next 400. As the moon rose in Perth it was actually coming out of eclipse but still had some colour to it.
I'd found the perfect spot the day before to ensure a view between the buildings when the moon was still as low as possible in the sky.
The camera I used was a Nikon P1000 at maximum zoom of 3,000 mm. Other specs, f 8, 1100, auto ISO 800.

stairs but was worth it in the end.
