Not fashion nor beach…….

13 May

I receive a lot of comments regarding the style of pics people see on this blog.

Fashion, Glamorous models and seascapes, well guess what I do look at other genres as well

Here is neither fashion nor beach,

Niether Fashion nor beach

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………

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…….

A lovely morning at Burleigh Beach this morning, great clouds and wave action.

A little chill in the air which of course made the first coffee taste even better.

I actually shot too many from this same location this morning because it was just so nice to be there.

Watch out Surfers Paradise, the clouds are closing in………

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…….

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.

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……

“the cafe is open”……

1 Apr

When I set out for my morning photo walks, the lights are out in most shops around the Gold Coast.

With our growing addiction to the coffee bean, and more people than ever walking early in the morning,

I see signs appearing all over the coast at sunrise, “the cafe is open”……
