For the month of February, I’m offering ANY print of your choice, printed on 600mm wide* canvas or heavyweight, archival-quality water colour paper at 40% OFF for only R960 including postage .

Go to my website, make a note of which portfolio the image is under - seascapes, sea & rocks, other water images or black & white, plus the name of the image - you find this at the bottom left when the image you clicked is enlarged.

* The actual image will not be 600mm wide - I print all my artworks with a  50-60mm border around them. Square artworks have a 100mm border.

Sunrise on Goukamma beach this morning....

Arrived a bit late - around 5:30 but managed to get a couple of shots....

Nice soft light, intentional camera movement creating the painterly look I favour

Shot with my rectangular fisheye lens...

...love the movement of the wave in the foreground creating an ethereal look...

Goukamma beach early morning

A totally grey day with no sunrise!
Once again, focussing on rocks - mainly in black and white...

Sorry...an earlier shot from Brenton-on-sea

Incoming tide...

Played with the colors here....

...this is what it was actually like...

I'm also enjoying the square format at the moment...

New Year, new camera, new photos

In early December, while shooting at Sedgefield beach, a big wave rolled in and knocked my tripod with my Canon 650D and Sigma 10-20mm lens on it, over!
It was covered by insurance, and after a lengthy decision-making process, I bought a new Olympus EM-5 witth the 12-40mm PRO lens as well as a Rokinon 7.5mm fisheye.
I am VERY happy with the EM-5 - the dynamic range and image quality is much better than the Canon.
I've spent a bit of time on various beaches around Wilderness, Sedgefield & Knysna - mainly at sunrise and sunset - (getting up at 4:00am isn't that much fun, but once you're on the beach, it's a stunning time of day.
The sunrises and sunsets haven't been that stunning, so I've been concentrating on rock formations and shooting quite a bit in black and white which I'm really enjoying.
Below are some images that I've captured...
