Yallingup Sunrise

Rockpool Sunrise

Rockpool Sunrise

After a couple of days of pretty ordinary weather down at Yallingup. I was very tempted to not even get up early on this morning. But forcing myself out of a nice warm bed (as by this stage we were bunked up in the cabin) I went down to the beach. It was after-all the last day down there, and I wouldn’t get opportunities like this back home.

After it all, I was very glad I went down there. It ended up being quite a stunning sunrise. I captured this image just as the light started turning, and it got even better 🙂

Using the polaring lens to cut through the reflections I saw into the heart of this beautiful rockpool. I really like the colours throughout the pool, and managed an interesting sky for once on the trip.

Yallingup Beach

Look out!! 2 posts within a week! Lol.

Well I thought I should get my act together a bit, and try and post some more. That way i’ll have to get out and shoot soon as otherwise,  i’ll run out of shots! 🙂 This is Yallingup Beach. Not far from Dunsborough in the magnificent Margaret River region.

The last morning of our stay, after having horrible weather the day before. Resulting in a busted tent, so we were forced into some luxory- taking refuge in the last cabin the park had to offer. Unlucky for some who had gone out for the day and also had tents blow apart, letting the rain in. Not realising until they returned at the end of the day. So we were very fortunate. 🙂

Mossy Shoreline

Mossy Shoreline

I headed across the road to the beach, and was walking out to the headland to see what I could get. It was about half an hour before sunrise, so I was still going by torchlight. I stumbled upon these mossy rocks, so setting up the torch on the rock I was able to focus. Then a 30 sec exposure came up with this. They’re pretty cool rocks and the huge waves created a very interesting white line on the horizon.

Anyway I hope you enjoy it.

More from Shelley Cove-Dunsborough

Sorry it’s been a while! I’ve been quite busy, and will be for the next month. And I’ve not had any chances to get out shooting for quite some time either.

It’s been killing me lately as there has been some awesome light finally!! So here’s back to another couple of shots from late last year, still a few more to come from this trip as well when I get some time.

As the afternoon light quickly disappeared I shot a few more compositions from the lovely little cove. We basically had it to ourselves the entire time. Apart from the whales breaching a few hundred meters out. How can you top that!?

Gnarly Cove

Alysia entertained herself watching the whales, and I clambered up the hill a bit to try and use this tree in a shot. It’s wicked branches provided some nice interest, and also helped control the exposure by holding out the harsher light in the top right. I really like the Gnarly fingers of the limbs reaching into the heart of the cove. I would have liked to include the entire shoreline on the left, but there was a stinking great big mess of seaweed all along it! You can’t have it all i spose 😛

Water on Mars

Water on Mars

The second shot here is a bit different. There was some nice red Lichen on these rocks I quite liked the look of. So using them in the foreground I warmed it up with the white balance, and combined with the long exposure came up with an unusual effect. I reckon it looks like Mars anyway 🙂
