Collaroy Beach

Taken at Collaroy Beach last night after sunset.  The tungsten lighting presents an issue when editing these shots, as it puts an orange/magenta cast over the image, but it can also work quite well.  I think I prefer this lighting effect for dawn rather than dusk, as the light is a lot softer and it compliments the environment.  Gorgeous evening to be out shooting, nice warm breeze, loads of people out swimming, running and just enjoying what is left of the “summer” weather.  If the cloud cover wasn’t so heavy I would have stuck around to shoot some star trails.

Technical specs: 9 march 2011, 1940hr, iso100, f/13, 24mm, 15 secs, 5 images stitched, ps cs5, canon l series 24-70mm, lee soft grad filter 0.6, canon 1d mk iv

Jumping Castle!!

The St Ives Heritage Fair is held on the first Sunday of every month.  The kids love going for the jumping castles, big slide, pony rides, face painting, trampolines with harnesses for doing backflips, decorating cupcakes, checking out the tutus and batman capes, etc…  loads of fun … and it even tires them out so Mummy can have a rest in the afternoon!  I snapped this pic when they were playing on the jumping castle.

Technical Specs: 6 march 2011, 12:25pm, iso250, 54mm, canon l series ef24-70mm f/2.8l usm, f/2.8, 1/1000 sec, canon 1d mark iv, hoya pro circular polarizer filter

Little Manly Fishermen

Went down to Little Manly with Liz to have a quick birthday dinner and watch the sunset.  I got out my new 70-200mm L series and handheld shot some photos whilst eating dinner.  It was a nice evening to be out


Warriewood Storm Brewing

Headed down to Warriewood this evening before the storm hit – the clouds were coming in fast and thick – as the light was falling, the pictures just got better and better.  I have taken a few panoramics and a few long exposures which I will edit and upload as they are completed.  This is the first image from this evening down at Warriewood beach…

Turimetta Sunrise

What a gorgeous morning to be up – I was watching an orange/pink sunset last night and was determined to capture a sunrise since I haven’t been out shooting for ages.  Headed down to Turimetta and on the way down Mona Vale Road, saw the sky going pink at around 4:40am – pretty excited at this point, knew it was going to be a cracker… Texted a few photographers to get up and shoot it!

Sunrise wasn’t until 5:41am, but the photo opportunities started close to 5:00am and the light was pretty much gone by 5:20am.  Didn’t stick around to watch the sunrise as I got my shots in the first 10 exposures.  Stunning morning to be up nice and early.  Will process some panoramics later on today, but just wanted to get this one up on the internet…


Turimetta Headland at Night

Another shot taken around 8pm at Turimetta Headland, under a full moon

EXIF Data: f/8, ISO400, 8:03pm-8:10pm, 420 seconds, 24mm


Turimetta Star Trails @ 9pm

I took this a while back, a friend helped me process it but the colours looked shocking.  It’s taken me a while, but I have edited it myself and it looks so much better 🙂

I shot this at 9pm one night, it was a full moon, but dark all the same

Technical Data: f/8, 420 seconds, 40mm, ISO400, 9:02pm completed the exposure


Narrabeen Wash

From the archives – just uploading images to my website and found this image that I hadn’t yet processed… I remember taking this shot, I got washed by a massive set that came through and this was the wash after the wave … I grabbed my tripod above my head, but was drenched… I love the shot though – well worth it…

 


Warriewood Rain

Another shot processed from last night’s shoot, just as the rain came in from the West.
