Surfers Paradise Aerial Photography 01/3

1 Comment

I’m Back… Thanks for your patience it has been a crazy start to the year that’s for sure.

The Gold Coast is forever changing and buildings are popping up left right and centre so after waiting for the completion of the Circle on Cavil project a few years ago I decided to head up in a helicopter to capture the city on the beach (Surfers Paradise) from a different angle. If you have been to the Gold Coast recently or you live here you will know that there are two major developments going on in Surfers Paradise at the moment, one being Soul a 77 story monolith and the HIlton development which will stand at 32 and 57 stories so there are cranes all over the place at the moment.

I thought I would post my take on Surfers Paradise but without all the cranes and construction going on. I will be also getting up in the air once Soul is finished so stay tuned for those images as well.

Duranbah Panoramic 01/5


As a landscape photographer I am always looking for something different to photograph. Duranbah is a little surf beach just around the corner from the world famous Snapper Rocks, it must be the way the beach faces but it almost always seems have a good wave. The reason I chose this angle is it gave the beach a sense of space which when you arrive at the car park is what you can see, a few scattered rocks on the left and a headland then a break wall on the right of the beach but mainly just sand and space.

This image is a 14 image stitch which could have been cropped to a 4:1 ratio but I liked the 3:1 better so that was the final result I went with.

Hope you like it
