So i ended up with first place in the My place WA Photographic competition! The results function night was great, very formal, i felt a bit under dressed! Thanks to everyone who was there, and everyone who entered. Congratulations to the runner ups and Under 18 winner. Thanks everyone who voted!
Hey everyone, just got the call from admin running the Celebrate WA comp and they said i have been placed into the Top 10 finalists out of 700 entries. Images go up for voting online next week and run for about 3 weeks.
The photograph with the most amount of votes wins the final prize which personally i don’t really like…
The finalist image is this one;
When the voting link comes out, i’ll post and please vote for me!!!
Thanks and enjoy
So i haven’t been that please with my previous shots of this rock so this last trip i was determined to get a decent one! So i set off again with my mate to sugarloaf on another stormy evening and just our luck, as soon as we got there, it started to rain!
After waiting about 15 minutes, i decided to set off anyway. Those of you who’ve shot there, i set off towards the left hand side and started climbing those rocks. The forecasted swell was about 4.5-5 metres so the water looked pretty mean.
After finding a good angle and waiting for the rain to stop, i decided to set up my gear. Since i was quite close to the water there was a lot of spray around so i had to be cautious with my gear. I’d take a photograph, then quickly cover the camera and lens with my rain coat so i wouldn’t get my stuff wet!
All in all i was quite impressed with this shot really showing how stormy the evening was. The wave and cloud action really invoke a sense of anger!!
