Day 113 – Rocky Bay at Dusk

April 10, 2010 Leave a comment

Took a trip to Rocky Bay yesterday evening with this picture in mind. I’m not too familiar with the beach and had hoped that the low tide would allow me to get out a bit further. I got my feet wet trying to get this one.

I spotted this branch on the beach so threw it in the tidal zone a few times to get this result.

Day 63 – Please don’t walk through my frame.

November 22, 2009 2 comments


I arrived at my chosen location to find a 60-70mph wind blowing making things very difficult. Sand was been blown all over the place and just standing still was a problem. My initial plan had to be changed so I went in search of some smooth sand in the dunes. I eventually found a piece which hadn’t been walked on and took a few test shots to get an idea where best to place my tripod. I set up the tripod, took my bag off my back, attached the camera to the tripod and to my surprise a guy went deliberately out of his way off the track in the dunes to climb up to where I was. He then proceeded to around my tripod and walk straight through where I was setting up to make an image of. Some people.

Anyway I ended up with this eventually. I’m still playing with Silver Efex Pro so forgive the almost certain excessive amount of B&W images over the coming days.

Work towards self employment

I just organized my ‘office’ a bit better today, it’s amazing how much paperwork I’m accumulating already. More reading and planning but nothing that feels like a step up as yet. I suppose every bit counts though.

Day 49 – On the beach

I managed to get a few hours on a beach today. As you can see from the picture it was a mixed weather type of day here today. It’s great to be able to get outside in the daylight on the weekends.
