  • A calm day at Cap Méchant

    When I got to Cap Méchant two things crossed my mind, keep the camera dry and how am I going to photograph this? Oh and keep the camera dry, obviously.
    The awesome power of the Indian Ocean is difficult to capture as a photograph, the movement of the water difficult to show, the only way I could think of capturing it was using video.

    These are fresh out of the water, there was a whole school of them trapped in the port, this attracted fishermen.
    They would have been served that evening for dinner.

    Photo 60 of 356 of the 2015 Collection

    I was a few thousand kilometers off my usual shooting grounds for 11 days. It was a very enlightening trip and I will return,
    I did no shoot as much as I wanted but I got great memories never the less. I will be posting them as I post-process.
    This is not far from my father-in-law’s house in Stain Paul on Reunion Island, the beach is an unusual black color, near surreal. on the far left you can see “Le Port”.

    On this trip, I decided to go light, in fact, very light. We left with 2 SONY ALPHA Mirrorless cameras (NEX-6 & 6000), 4 lenses, a Mefoto tripod, a Western Digital 1TB Wireless hard drive and an Ipad Mini 2. It was an experiment in minimalism, one I do not regret. I mostly shot with the Alpha 6000 and the 10-18mm f/4 lens. What I need to learn is to shoot far more often with my tripod.
    There is one irritation though, the final results are only visible back at home, the advantage of not spending time post-processing whilst on holiday is worth it.

    I am still experimenting and learning Photoshop manual blending, this one’s alignment is a little out, I was not able to fix it. I do better next time.

    Photo 6 of 356 of the 2015 Collection

    Randomly chosen by Loraine Botha from my Blue collection (Unedited and Unpublished).
    Long story short, I posted a request on Facebook to pick a number between 1 and 63, I had 63 photos queued for publishing in my Blue collection (Unedited and Unpublished) at the time. Various people answers and I will be posting the photos in order of picking by these people. I have encountered an issue though 63 was picked twice and then came 62 which at this time no longer exists, so I will take the last remaining photo in the collection for all 3.
    This one was shot at a beach at Cape Point, I found these creatures interesting at the time.
