what to photograph when the sun's out

19th August 2014, Embleton Bay, 9am

Cathy's PhotoWorkshop and we wandered around in the bright sun talking about photography and taking a few photographs...


The chilly NW wind was whipping the waves into a boiling froth of big breakers...


The wind had blown sand into the cracks in the rocks then blown the excess away leaving sharp patterns.



I took this picture first of the fern frond backlit by the sun...


...but on closer inspection we could see these capillary patterns in the fronds.  Very beautiful.


Striking shadows on the decking...

painfully bright

3rd August 2014, Embleton Bay, 6am

A fine morning. Very bright after yesterdays dull, grey skies.

 How sweet a pain is the brightness of the morning sun...

flower festival and a day of 3 walks...

28th July 2014, Low Newton By The Sea, 8am

It's the church flower festival so I walked Daisy and took a photo of some wild flowers before heading into the church for some shots of the arranged flowers...







29th July 2014, Football Hole, 8am

Very calm sea - Football Hole was like a tropical lagoon and it felt like you could walk through the sea to the horizon...


29th July 2014, Newton Point, 4pm

Warm and sunny again - I could get used to this! A bonny colourful yacht skimmed by on the strong breeze...


29th July 2014, Newton Point, 6pm

So nice we went out for another walk before tea...

The evening light glittered on the shore


Daisy's ears streamed in the wind...

model shoot

27th July 2014, Beadnell Bay, 6:30 am

Lots of rain overnight but the blue skies are back and it already pleasantly warm at 6:30. Warm enough for Daisy to want to cool her paws...



A very deliberate composition to meet the specs for a magazine feature needing portrait format and lots of blank sky for text.  Shame Daisy didn't look happier. You can't get the models these days...
