Weekend in Dunsborough

March 01, 2014  •  1 Comment

Spent a fabulous weekend in Dunsborough with some very talented friends (Tina Bartley, Stuart Westmore, and Jordan Cantelo, google them, they captured some epic shots!). It's always interesting shooting with others, watching other people's 'modus operandi', and seeing how everyone interprets the same scene differently.

As per usual, the weather gods were not smiling for the cameras, with a distinct lack of cloud cover. Didn't stop us from grabbing the cameras at every opportunity and having a crack anyway! It's so beautiful in the South West, who can resist?!

Our first evening was spent at Wyadup Rocks and we were joined by the one and only Mr Christian Fletcher (turns out he is only human after all). A few near misses in the quicksand (was deceptive, one foot wrong and I was up to my knees!), and as soon as the sun dropped we were attacked by swarms of mozzies. A few keepers from here, though mainly abstract 'arty farty' stuff :-)

Saturday morning sunrise was at Canal Rocks, where I discovered the mozzies are quite happy to bite through your clothes!

A pleasant afternoon was spent at Castle Rock, followed by sunset at Honeycombs where we caught up with another local photographer, Nathan Wills. The light was pretty intense, but the waves were big (well we thought so). I love the colour of the ocean in our South West, and could watch the waves rolling in for hours.

The final sunrise of the weekend was at good old Sugarloaf. Actually, it's only my 2nd real attempt at photographing (the first being approx. 4 years ago when I was starting out). I will need to go back, as I still didn't nail it, there are just so many options here.

So there you have it, a fabulous weekend, with great company, and a bonus few photographs that I'm happy with :-)
