Chk-Chk-Boom!

Chk-Chk-Boom!, originally uploaded by The Sage of Shadowdale.

I added my WordPress blog to my authorised blogs in Flickr today, and thought I needed to just test the linkage to make sure it was working fine.

By the way, this shot was taken with the last few frames of the day at Harbord on the way home from a pre-dawn shoot at Whale Beach. I’ve accumulated a few splash shots, and will almost certainly continue to shoot them a bit as the years roll on, so I thought I’d start a “Splash” set on Flickr. This image was the start of that (still rather small) set.

Sentinels

10 06 2009

Forresters Beach, on the Central Coast, is a very photogenic location, particularly during sunrise & morning nautical twilight. Among it’s many shootable (yes I just made up that word) features is a large tidal pool, usually ankle to knee deep, where the waves wash in and then drain back out again. In this pool are two large rocks that stand at the ocean edge of the pool, looking very much like sentinels guarding the pool from enemies.

Magenta Morning

2 06 2009

I had a morning to myself mid-last year when I decided to go down to Whale Beach and shoot the northern headland at dawn.  I’d never shot there before so I didn’t really know what to expect in terms of the rock formations & the light conditions.  The twilight that morning was very…purple.  Can’t think of a better way to describe it.

The northern headland at Whale Beach has some really interesting rocks.  I’ll definitely have to go shoot it again sometime.  Here’s a small sample of what I mean:

Starting anew

30 04 2009

I’ve had blogger.com blogs, have seen a few wordpress.com blogs and thought it was time to check out WordPress a bit more thoroughly. So to that end I’ve started a photoblog here.

So, to kick it off, how about a relatively recent image…

I may have to revisit the image and process it for WordPress (sans borders, etc.). but for now this will do.  Hope you enjoy.
