Guess what….I found a lake in Perth !!!. I know you won’t believe me but finally I have some shots of a lake..not the ocean…..however I have developed a new found hatred for ducks !! see you just don’t have that problem on the ocean but go near a nice still lake and park your tripod on the shore line and they come from everywhere !!! and no I didn’t have any bread. I spent most of the time throwing sticks in the opposite direction hoping they would follow !!!

I hate nature ! ( I don’t really, I live for it !!)

sunset, lake, reflections, jonathan stacey

Appreciating and capturing light is the cornerstone to my photography. combine this with the beauty of our Western Australian beaches and rocky coastline and you have something that should be both witnessed, captured and shared.

I hope I can inspire you to take the time to see a sunrise or sunset, on a coast or a rocky outcrop somewhere, and then maybe you can understand why for me, Photography has become a passion……
