It is always a pleasure to have images in the portfolio that cover a place that has significance for a client and so it was with these 2 purchases sized and placed perfectly to fit in with the existing decor and take pride of place for viewing.
The panorama is taken at dawn following the full moon and with a perfectly clear sky you can see the moon clearly as the sky transitions from dawn to daytime colours. There is only a very limited timeframe on this one day a month to get this placement and the weather also has to co-operate!
The rectangular shot is also an early dawn shot from another day with clear views to North Brother down the coast along Lighthouse Beach and is a creative merge of several shots in succession which gives the sea a soft ethereal look perfectly contrasting the rocks lit by the dawn sun.
I call this piece "Tree of Life" because that is what it resembles in this orientation.
The client wanted something a little "different" and a talking point also sized a substantial 180 x 118 cm to fit a recess in their formal dining area and they certainly picked the perfect image!
This is a top-down drone shot of a rocky outcrop at Miners Beach, Port Macquarie and is in fact several images of successive waves merged together showing the movement around the rocks very clearly that a single typical shot could never do and is exactly why the gallery "Creative - Time Shift" was created, to showcase such possibilities for that something a little "different" yet still very much true to life.
