Happy Valley – Fraser Island 09/12


Earlier this year I spent a week on Fraser Island photographing. I like to base myself about half way up the island on the eastern side to take full advantage of what the place has to offer. Fraser Island has a lot of sand, I mean a lot of sand and well it should, it’s the world’s largest sand island. With there being so much sand, there is a fair amount of plain beach especially along 75 mile beach however I did manage to find a little outcrop of coffee rock just near Happy Valley.

When photographing with the Fuji G617 using 120 velvia 50 you only get 4 shots per roll unlike using digital where you can snap away without a worry in the world, the Fuji really makes you slow down and think about what you are doing when out photographing. After setting up and composing the shot I was after I realised that the shot I had composed was only going to work on a freak set so with the incoming tide I waited and waited and finally it came in enough for another wave to wash up and over the rock. I used a one second exposure to give the shot a sense of movement, I think it worked pretty well but ill let you be the judge of that one. You can view the image larger by clicking on the photo.

Thanks for stopping by

Broadbeach Sunset 07/12

No Comments

Broadbeach is one of the business hubs of the Gold Coast and not too far from where I live. I was watching the sky all day thinking that there might be a decent sunset so I got the camera cases ready and headed to Broadbeach to see what the sky would do. At first it was boring and I almost headed home thinking it was going to be a dud but I stuck around and played around with some close up exposures of the water and the reflections of the sky in the sand. As I began walking back to my case I saw a faint bit of colour in the sky and set up properly to see what would happen and only a minute or so later the sky began to glow with colour and I managed to get this shot looking back towards Surfers Paradise.
