Cape Naturaliste South West Western Australia

On a whim I headed south the other day to try out a few ideas that had been floating round my head for a while. I have this kind of shot in my mind for a while now and tried and failed on my last visit south, this time I came away with something I am a lot happier with … Being a very windy the only side of the south west that was acceptable to photograph was the western side shielded by those strong easterly winds that made Quinndalup Bay a mess with seaweed and mirky water.

Trying to produce cleaner images with less post production and more emphasis on clarity and composition …. Cape Naturaliste is a Western Australian landscape photography paradise!

Coming up next on the blog are images from Tasmania, Victoria and Hawaii and my field test report on the Zeiss 50mm f/2 lens …. Goodbye Canon 50 f/1.2 ….

    ahh my home town, geez I’m lucky. Good to see your take on this place Neal. I like the simplicity and smooth tones.

    • Thats what I was hoping for simplicity and natural color … yep you live in a stunning part of Oz and just a stones throw from here, but I guess at the time you where much further north šŸ™‚

  2. Good photo and interesting colors.

    Very nice image Neal, not a footprint to be seen and great light!

  4. That looks great Neal, the simplicity and natural look you are aiming for is easy to distinguish here and it worked well. It’s such a great exercise to really “slim” down an image in terms of content and colours. Great.

    • Cheers Flem … I guess it is all an evolution, i look at stuff I took just 8-10 months ago and cringe …. I have been on a bit of clarity push for some time now and trying to use filters less and less. With the new Zeiss lens I hope to do even more straight glass landscape photography and concentrate more on the composition and clarity at the time of shooting and less time in post production … I never want to stand still and be content … When that happens I guess its time to put the camera down and try something else …

    Achieved your goal here Neal. Goes to show that you don’t have to have clouds to achieve an evocative image. Well done

    • Thanks Andrew … No clouds but something was going on with the light as just before sunset the sand and the rocky ledge took on a nice glow to them … plus not having one footprint in the sand was also very nice …

    Hey Neal,
    any news or thoughts on the Zeiss 50mm f/2 lens. Im after a 50mm prime,
    Would be interested to hear/read your opinion cheers Adrian

    • Have not had enough time with it yet Adrian, but the last couple of shoots I have done with the 50mm f/2 lens has produced files far superior to anything I have shot with the canon 50mm … I have not even got around to doing any post production yet, just comparing raw files its clear to see the lens quality difference ….
