Miami Beach

5 05 2011

Miami Beach
During my 6 week trip of America I stopped in Miami for a couple of days . Miami was an interesting stop and seemed to have lots going on all the time .

I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the beach’s there . But I guess we are just spoilt for Beach’s here in Western Australia . On the plus side they did get some nice tropical weather and light there .

Was taken with Canon 5D MKII 24-70mm f2.8 USM L Lens and Lee Filters . Was a 6 image stitch .

Focal Length : 50m
ISO : 50
F : 16
S : .6s





South Lake Tahoe

20 06 2010

Lake Tahoe was my 6th stop durring my visit to the US . I had hired a car and driven from Las Vegas to Yosemite then to Lake Tahoe . Its amazing how much the scenery and weather conditions can change in America compared to Australia . Durring the 8 hour drive from Las Vegas which was a hot dessert with cactus and shrub plants to cold Mountains with pine trees , river , giant granite rocks and snowing .

Lake Tahoe is a largest freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains of the United States . It is located along the border between California and Nevada, west of Carson City, Nevada . This would have to be one of my all time favorite locations to photograph and also visit  .

The above photograph is a 8 image stitch of Emerald Bay which is a short drive from Lake Tahoe town . You have to drive along windy roads along cliffs to get here and one part got step long drops on both sides which is quite scary  .

One thing you notice about Lake Tahoe is just how thin the air is up here , after running around the cliff and hills taking photos carrying my  camera bag and tripod I came out of breath a several times even though being young and pretty fit I guess you would climates to the thin air the longer you stay here .  It was also cold , I had thermals , plus jumpers and two jackets beanies and gloves on and it was freezing what made it worst was the wind up top . I would hate to see how cold it could get during winter .

Below is a single image of the Lake just before sunrise .

I only got to spend two nights here during my trip to the USA but it is defiantly on my list of places to return to .






Lake Tahoe

12 06 2010

I’m back from my 6 week trip around America . Have to say its a pretty amazing place and so much variety with different landscapes to photograph .

Had a great time over there , really is an amzing place to photograph and also eat and shop so much variety with every thing compared to Perth .

Came back with around 350 gigs of RAW images from the trip . Will defiantly be planning on going back to some of these locations in the near future .

One of the places I visited was Lake Tahoe , this would be one of my favorite towns and locations during the trip . It was really tranquil and landscape was amazing . Also have to say that you really notice the thinner air up there when your climbing back up hills with your back pack and tripod .

This was an Sunrise shot of Over looking the Lake , It was really cold this morning and had to work between light showers of snow that morning .

Will have a lot more images coming over the next weeks .





South West Beaches

8 02 2010

As summer is getting close to finishing I though would share a few quick summery images .

Got to love the color of the water down the south west of Western Australia.

The top image was a six image stitch of a yacht anchored off Meelup Beach just outside of Dunsbrough .

The bottom image is a 3 image vertical stitch of the crystal clear waters at Yallingup .





Back From Sydney

25 09 2009

white-boarderWell just got back from Sydney early this morning , had a pretty engoyable time there and the weather was a lot nicer then Perth most the time it even reached 30 degress on day . I also found out that Tamarama bay is a lot further away from Coogee then I though after walking after sunset it with all my camera gear lol . I did finally make it to Coogee but and got a much need drink and feed .

I was all so over there durring the big dust storm , woke up early to the sound of sirens going and looked out the window of my appartment and the whole sky was bright orange . though there must have been a big fire close by at first , also nice to see the people getting use out all them face mask they would have bough for the swine flu that morning 🙂

This is one shot I took while I was over there really like the angle on this composition , would like to shot this one again under better light . This was a six image shot taken shortly after the lights turned on .
