Sailing at sunset at the ocean

Light began to fall with a golden glow guiding the sailing boats along the choppy horizon.  I watched in wonder as the boats moved back and forward navigating the openness of the earth. Vessels shot along back and forth like children’s toys in a tub. The race had begun.

Looking into the scene I couldn’t help but feel small at the sight of the over-towering clouds as light filtered magically through them, adding a richness to the scene.

Love My Rotto


Rottnest Island is surrounded by pristine waters and only a short trip from the mainland making it a great weekend getaway. The locals refer to the island paradise as ‘Rotto’. For me this photograph captured on the Fujifilm X-Pro 1, sums up the island perfectly. Pristine beaches, clear water and amazing views – what more could you want?  You can even see the City of Perth (which is my hometown) on the distant horizon!

Paradise found – love my rotto!

Be Creative and Capture The Details


Sometimes its best to look at the interesting parts of a scene. The end result won’t look like another boring sunset…… take this photo as an example.

Do you like this?

Over the next week I would like to challenge you in your photography. Try photographing the smaller details of a scene rather than the complete scene. Let me know what results you get by posting a link in the comments below.

The Afternoon Atmosphere at South Beach


South Beach, Western Australia

The afternoon atmosphere gathered with excitement.

A colourful mass brewed ignited by the last light.

Reflections turned to glass mirroring the magnificent spectacle happening above.

Children played by the water’s edge as a man tried his luck at the ocean bounty.

Mirages filled the drizzled horizon exposing ghost ships shimmering in the afternoon heat.

I saw the scene developing before me.

The movement of the water would have to be masterfully timed.

My hands griped the salty leather surrounding my X-Pro 1.

Powering up, the aperture ring clicked into its normal stop.

With camera rotated my eye became fixed to the viewfinder.

A short wait and the wave behaved the way I had envisioned.

Pink Grey and Wild


Striking pink and pale grey suit this jovial character.

A sumptuous sunflower seed is pure indulgence for the bird who seems to speak a trilled language.

The messiness of the order tumbles from a worked beak.

A smile ignites in his eye and enlightens a cheeky personality as the burst of seed is enough to make this bird wild.

Pink and Grey Galah

This wild bird was photographed in my neighbour’s yard on the Canon EOS 1D MK IV
