Colour at Komune….

13 May

Local resort Komune, is a fantastic supporter of the local fashion scene.

Yet again a great fashion event was staged and the crowd got to view the designs around the pool deck.

Window of sunlight……

13 May

Clouds really lift landscape photography.

They add drama, change the light and sometimes frame a key element.

The clouds at Snapper Rocks formed the perfect window of sunlight………

Contrasting sky……..

12 May

After a marathon fashion shoot, an extended hike with my son’s scout troop, a relaxing walk along the beach with a camera in hand was in order.

Snapper Rocks has changed so much since the big storms earlier this year, so it’s like finding a new location every time I visit.

This morning the surf was pounding in, and there was a wonderful contrasting sky…….

Break of dawn at Burleigh beach……….

5 May

Out early this morning, some cloud activity, which we all know is great for photos.

Lately I have either slept in or there hasn’t be a cloud in the sky.

Not today, but before I shown those pics, here is one from the the break of dawn at Burleigh beach…….

Before the sun came up………

28 Apr

After a bit of a lay off due to other work, I jumped out of bed with gusto.

Off to the beach to capture a nice sunrise or two.

I drove to the beach, strolled out to the rocks, coffee in hand and waited….

The sun now rises almost an hour later since I last was at the beach !!

So I captured some shots before the sun came up…….

Solitary shower…..

8 Apr

The title of this post is typed with tongue in cheek!

The Gold Coast is yet again, wet and gray, yep more rain.

I am not going to get started on the climate change debate, however there is certainly something going on.

This beach shower at Nobbys beach probably wont see a lot of customers today.

Light Painting…well, sort of……..

4 Apr

There are lots of very creative photographers out there that push boundaries all the time.

HDR, Lensbaby, even infra-red images are created.

Me, I stick with what i know..,most of the time.

The other morning whilst walking along the creek, I noticed that the street lights painted these rocks and gave them an unusual hue .

To me it was kinda like light painting…well, sort of………….

Seagull sunrise……..

4 Apr

Whoops….Sunrise is at 6.00am not 5.00am, and yes I found myself standing near a small lighthouse, freezing cold getting covered in salt spray.

Three pics later I had enough of that location.

The clouds weren’t co-operating, it was too windy and the sky stayed grey.

As I neared home, I noticed that  Burleigh Heads was sheltering a small rock pool and the sun was partly hidden by cloud.

Knee deep in still clear water, I was lucky to at least capture a seagull sunrise…..

Burleigh Heads is a remarkable location.

Great surfing on one side, family friendly swimming on the other.

Fishing of all kinds and beautiful walks thru rainforest with remnants  of ancient volcanos all around.

Its hard to find a great location to shoot from, but my favourite is along the Eastern edge amongst the basalt pillars and boulders.

Its easy to get up early to catch the Burleigh sunrise……

A classically beautiful model, a stunning dress and simple backdrop.

Add a strobe and softbox and you get shaped light……..
