Portrait of Number 2

This is a rare occasion as she never sits still enough to get a good shot.


Saturday, September 10, 2011


This was spotted at the back of our house.  I used a 50mm F1.4 @ f2 and only cropped and added vignette, no other edits were done apart from raw processing.


Rust on the Beach

Rusted fence along the beach again I like the square crop.

Here is another beach shot.  Looked good on the day nice big waves hitting the rocks.  The reflection is reduced by using a polariser.  I like the way it cuts reflections out of the water and the bottom of the pool can be seen.

Drift Wood

Taken at Woonona beach.  Maybe a bit oversaturated but I think it adds to it.

Small Water Fall

This is in the Royal National Park near Waterfall IIRC.  It was a rainy day and was interesting seeing not much at all.

Forest Tree

I think this is in the National park south of Sydney.

I know that it is a toilet roll, but it is the shadow that was cast that caught my eye.

Two at the Beach

Here is wife and number 1 child playing in the water.

It is amazing what we will use as a barrier and how effective it is in keeping us back.

This was from the Nowra air show for the 80th anniversary.

Here is another shot of a sunrise and from the farm.

Morning Tree

This was taken on the farm one morning while we were house sitting.

This was a shot for the Canon Photo5 competition.

Lake Jindabyne 2

Here is another pic from Lake Jindabyne, again square crop.

Lake Jindabyne

Back to landscapes! Not too many spider shots but there may be more in my library.

Trying something different, a square crop.  Looks good to me.  This was taken in the opposite direction to the sun setting, everyone else in the park was shooting the actual sunset, I thought this was better.

This might not be for all!

It was between our clothes line and the basket, and presented itself in an unexpected way.  We always get spiders here but not this big.

This was just one of many that were lying around the farm dam.

Around Parliament House

If I recall correctly, we were out for looking to see what the buildings in Canberra were like during earth hour.  One of our stops before the time was Parliament House and these sort of jumped out at me/

Enjoy and Keep Shooting

Here is a shot from 2006, Woonona beach taken in the sunset light.

Keep Shooting

Comet C/2006 P1 McNaught

This was taken back in 2007 from the family farm not too far from Canberra.

It was the first comet to be this bright in over 40 years and was an opportunity I could not miss.

Keep Shooting

National Library

Here is the last image from Sunday last week, the same time as 18 minutes and National Museum.

The red and blue lights are from an ambulance going past at just the right moment, lucky timing!

I've added a form to add your email address to get a message when I have added a post, so feel free to sign up.

I am also tossing up offering my photos to purchase, please let me know if you think this is a good idea.

Get out and shoot.

National Museum

Second image from the outing last Sunday.  These were more experimental than anything else.

18 Minutes

Here is my first attempt at a night sky with star trails.  It is an 18 minute exposure and I think it came out fairly good for a first attempt.

I took 10 images last night over 90 minutes so I think it was a successful outing.
Hopefully I can get some more regular updates now that Uni is finished for the semester and find some decent photos worth posting.  Trauling through 5 years of photos is not a quick task.

Lake George

These are from before the windfarm was installed.



Last from Narooma


Here is the last from the Narooma series.

I am going to try and post on average one a day.  Many will be from as early as 2005 (but they are fairly ordinary compared to the later ones)

Sea at Narooma

I made a big effort to get up early and catch a sunrise and this is one of the many I took.

Look for more of this series to come.
