Narrabeen Aquatic Reserve

Woke up nice and early at 0430 to train at the gym at 0530 – i figured since sunrise was at 0647 i may as well pack my camera gear and head down to the beach for a shoot, allowing me ample time to drive down there, set up and have a chat to the people out exercising on such a lovely morning.  The weather was nice and warm, perfect for shooting – no chilly wind to knock the tripod around.

The one thing I noticed was how polite people were, I was taking up the entire walkway with my tripod and my f-stop bag splayed over the footpath, nobody seemed to mind much, they paused, then asked me if they could walk in front of the camera.  The guy who was walking down the walkway (the one in the shot) noticed I was getting a bit dismayed as he was right in my shot and wearing red which would have been hard to photoshop out and then make the pier look perfect again, so he hurried up and apologised when he got to the end – totally unnecessary, but so nice to know that the Northern Beaches is full of gorgeous people!

Oh and they had the audacity to tell me that I should have been down here yesterday as the sunrise was sweet as…. grrrr…. didn’t need to know that 🙂

I got loads of shots, but this was my favourite panoramic, will upload an individual shot later.

Technical Specs: 11 march 2011, 6:54am, iso100, f/14, 0.6 sec, 24mm, canon l series 24-70mm lens, canon 1d mark iv, 9 images stitched


North Avoca Sunset


Went down to North Avoca with Tim Bolger to shoot sunset.  Took a while to find a comp that I liked.  As the sun was setting I had my big stopper on and missed the pink clouds, but I got this just before sunset.  Definitely a place I will be heading back to and reshoot, maybe a sunrise next time… (now I know how to find the place).

Forresters at Dusk – Panoramic

My panoramic is finally manually stitched from last night’s shoot.  This is a series of 8 shots taken in portrait orientation.  Specs: f/18, ISO100, 10 secs per frame, 24mm, 8:13pm-8:15pm, 18 January 2011.  I thought I would upload something different from Forresters – I have a few seascape shots as well, but will upload those as they are processed.  Hope you like this one.

Forresters at Dusk!

It’s about time I got back out on the beaches to shoot some seascapes.  I met up with Danny, Tim and Jasiah down at Forresters Beach on the Central Coast to capture tonight’s sunset.  The cloud was a bit thick to filter much colour through, so it was an overcast shoot – but still so nice to shoot Forresters – always something different to compose.  I found my favourite rock to shoot and this is the first out of a few shots that I got tonight.

Technical Specs: f/14, 10 sec, 8:17pm, 24mm, lee grad filter 0.9, 24-70mm l series, canon 5d mark ii


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…

EXIF: f/22, 1.3sec, ISO100, 16mm, lee soft grad filter 0.6, canon 5d mark ii, canon l series lens 16-35mm, 7:59pm, 26 December 2010

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


Stormy Warriewood

Well, after watching gorgeous sunsets dusk after dusk for three nights running, I thought it best to dust off my camera gear and head on out tonight.  It wasn’t looking promising, but I was committed to getting out there and shooting something … anything …

As I was heading out, the storm from the west was sweeping over and hiking out to the ocean, but I decided to keep on going.  I got on location at around 6:45pm and the edge of the cloud line was at Warriewood – was planning on Collaroy baths or Narrabeen, but the storm had beaten me to those locations.  I hiked out to the shoreline and the wind picked up and started to rain heavily on me, but I still managed to snap a few shots off.

As I got back to my car, soaked but not sorry, I was grinned at by a few of the tradies checking the surf out, they must’ve thought I was mad…. absolutely soaked, sand everywhere, but I got my shot!
