my day with Pete Dobre...

...and Laura Smith.

Pete is a renowned Australian Landscape Photographer who has had many hard cover books published. His signature in his images are the clouds he captures within his landscapes.

He was in my local area for a couple of weeks a couple of weeks ago. Through Laura, I was invited to have a day out with him and Laura shooting different locations on Lower EP.



First stop was at a windmill and an old stone tank on the Nowhere Else Rd. We were so blessed with awesome skies.



Next was the Sheringa Church. Again, amazing skies.






After a longer stint there we headed down the coast and ended up at Coles Point for some big wave action. That sand was soooo blistering hot to run over and it was so very refreshing to get wet in the water











Evening found us having a quick meal at the Coffin Bay Pub before we went to a spot to capture the sun setting.






I learnt so much along the way, and learnt a lot more since processing the images and how a wide angle lens can be tricky to stitch panos with.

Pete's a crack up. Spontaneous and energetic and so very generous with sharing his knowledge. Cant wait to hook up with him again come this winter. Yes, we have a date lol.
