Thick fog in Northam this morning for the Avon Descent which was delayed for quite some time waiting it to lift so the race could start. Fog can be a photographers friend sometimes though and I took the opportunity to take this image whilst I was waiting.

Another shot of last nights clouds with a simple lone tree in a paddock composition. Summer in the avon Valley is dry and sparse on a whole so this is my interpretation of the scene that presented itself.

Northam Rail yards.

Some nice colour in the sunsetting sky this evening so I ventured out for a photo tour. This is the rail yards with the main CBH grain silos in Northam. Remember to click on image to view larger.

 

Avon River Northam.

This is an image I shot a few weeks back and have had some local feedback on. I thought I should post in on my blog instead of just leaving it on FB onlyAvon River web

Road Warrior.

I had and interesting photo shoot last weekend for a guy who was extremely proud of this bike which he has been building up as a one off custom. It was a great afternoon which resulted in some interesting shots in various locations around the Avon Valley and even a few in the public bar of the Grass Valley tavern. Since I am a bike rider myself it was good to be capturing all the action and putting a few creative things together to make it a little more appealing. This was one of the last shots of the day and was taken using the Elinchrom quadra lighting system and a small deep octa softbox.

Dukes Inn, Northam.

Last weekend I had the job of shooting images for the owner of the recently renovated Dukes Inn hotel and luxury accomodation here in Northam. They have done a great job with the revamping of this old but very sound and characteristic historic building.  This is one image I singled out to convert to Black & White and try something a bit different on. The colour version was nice as well but the drama in this scene begged for this treatment I thought.
