Solid Gold

This morning I took some friends from my camera club to Turimetta on Sydney's northern beaches.  Some had not shot seascapes (or shot them much), so were keen to try upon my offer. Unfortunately my wish for a good sky this morning yet again did not come true; the sky was plain and very bright... [more]

Post-Processing Tutorial: "The Narrabeen Gorge"

In July I headed to Narrabeen for a Sunday dawn shoot. Narrabeen and nearby Turimetta is a location I have photographed a few times before, but on this day the sky was moody. One of my stand-out captures of the morning is The Narrabeen Gorge.  Here it is: On this particular morning the conditions were... [more]

Cloud Cover Prediction Tool

I picked up a real gem from Brent's blog last weekend. He has learned of a Web-based tool called SkippySky Astro-Weather Forecast, which shows a visual map of cloud cover, including percentages, with breakdown of cloud cover (ie, high, middle, low and total).

While it is incredibly humbling and satisfying to receive such nice, genuine compliments, what I do is not... [more]

The Narrabeen Gorge

Not far from Narrabeen tidal pool is a gorge into which the ocean plunges its contents, producing big splashes and water cascades. On Sunday morning I was fortunate enough to capture this scene in all it glory, under a moody, yet colourful sky. I wanted dark, moody drama with a churning ocean and water cascading... [more]

Finally, a Good Sky

I headed out to Narrabeen and Turimetta for a dawn seascape with a group of friends from AusPhotography, and finally was greeted with a good sky. Of the numerous dawn shoots I have done this year, this is the fourth good sky I have seen.  It has been a struggle, and immensely frustrating at that... [more]
