Turimetta Swell

This is an image I shot in January of 2012 at Sydney's well-photographed Turimetta Beach. This particular scene is further away from the main gorge and rocks featured in so many images. The morning brought a few successful images, but this one had sat untouched and unpublished for the past three years. A moody, rain-laden... [more]

Which Filters for Landscape Photographers?

A discussion about creative filters on an Internet forum got me thinking, and prompted me to post a quick article here on a question new landscape/seascape/cityscape photographers often ask: Which filters should I buy? I personally recommend Lee filters (although I have a HiTech filter in my rig), and use the Lee filter holder and... [more]

Enter the Darkness

This view of a tempestuous sky in South Cronulla was an image I shot over four years ago, and originally processed and published in black and white. Here is a newly-processed colour version. To my eyes years later, it looks just as effective in colour as it does in black and white... [more]

Blue Lagoon

Last weekend I decided to work on an image I shot years ago, but had never touched. This older image was captured at Long Reef in 2010, on what turned out to be a spectacular morning which yielded pleasing images. This particular location is on the outer part of the reef near the breaking waves... [more]

Additionally, time has been lacking for a few years, and my ability to get out regularly for a shoot, even... [more]

Bombo Tower

This morning I headed out for my first dawn seascape in months, with my photography mates Danielle and Peter. We headed to the old Bombo quarry, which is a stunning location; but the sky was atrocious, so I figured a silhouette of the towering rock formations would make for about the only decent image I...

The Result of Today's Seascape Shoot

This morning I headed out with Danielle for a seascape shoot on Long Reef. Our original plan was to head south to Austinmer, but the tide was not suitable for that location; it was, however, very suitable for Long Reef, and since Danielle had never been there, it made sense to go there. The sky was quite... [more]

Revisiting Seascapes

This Easter long weekend has presented both the opportunity and desire to do something I have not done for a while: seascape photography. The last time I shot a dawn or dusk seascape image was last October.  I was not happy with my images from that morning, and never published anything from that shoot.  I... [more]
