Guess it has been a while since I posted an image to the blog. Reason is I have been holding back a few images for the launch of Stage II of Spool Photography Landscapes. Right now there is around 40-50 images ready for the launch and with a little luck with the light I should have another 15 odd to add the the list. Some of the images have been seen before but most have not been seen by anyone, so I am looking forward to stage II becoming a reality.
In the meantime here is an image taken last week down south at Yallingup Beach, a little experiment with light and textures shot with my 70-200 f/2.8 lens. Not quite the right lens, would of liked a little more length and some larger surf. But a good exercise none the less.
With this image I wanted to get as low as I could, see I do not have a surf ski and waterproof housings but I still wanted the effect of looking across the surface of the water into the wave and a cross to the mountains (ok ok hills but I was thinking Maui at the time ) I like the 2 layers of mountains ( hills ) that give the image depth . Longer focal length I may of pulled it off. The dark foreground surface of the surf does still give a little perspective to what I wanted to achieve.
Am I ready for Maui? ALWAYS!
