Kangaroo Island – Rust in Peace   Leave a comment

We recently visited Kangaroo Island – and previously I posted photos from the Raptor Domain Bird Show

Today a quick post of a couple of the classic cars rusting away on the island.

I am sure most other places with the rarity and increasing value of classic cars they would have been removed or plundered for parts.

There is a couple more photos on my facebook photography page here

Kangaroo Island – Raptor Domain   Leave a comment

We recently had the opportunity to spend 3 nights staying at Kangaroo Island – off the southern coast of Australia – one of the highlights of the visit was going to the Raptor Domain Bird Show.

They had a variety of Birds of Prey from small Falcons up to the very large Wedge Tail Eagle.

One of my favourites was the White Bellied Sea Eagle – it was taken out of its nest as a baby and raised in a shed – when it was rescued it did not know how to fly properly or eat fish. They have put a lot of work into correcting this – but sadly will never be able to be released into the wild.

Abbey the Barking Owl was also a favourite

The Star of the show was the Wedge Tail Eagle

A more complete collection of the bird photos  can be found on my facebook page here

We had a great time on the island – and I will post more photos in the future .

If you want to see more of the wonderful nature of Kangaroo Island there is nice facebook page here that we found useful when planning our trip there.

Thanks for looking.

I have too many hobbys – Warhammer V Songs of Blades and Heroes.   2 comments

I have not posed here in a very long time – I am still taking photos – but have been lazy and just putting them on my facebook page.

Photography is not my only hobby – I also play with little toy soldiers – more correctly I paint wargame figures – I rarely actually play the games – as I just did not have the time – working on changing that – after I acquired some vintage warhammer Orc and Goblin figures – talking to a few friends – looks like it is time to play some vintage warhammer – thinking 4/5th edition (it is currently up to 8th edition).

So going through what I already own – I found these painted figures that have not seen the light of day for a few years.

They were based for a skirmish fantasy game Songs of Blades and Heroes – so now thinking do I rebase them or not for old style Warhammer.

First up is some Warhammer “Big Uns”

A Orc Shaman – and two Black Orcs ( one of them is probably to modern for the Army look I m after).

And amongst the Orcs I found this Warhammer High Elf Mage – notsure what his future is – maybe sell to get more Orcs.

I had the opportunity to photograph the Gasolina Pin-Up Girls on the weekend – check out there facebook page for more about them.

We had a lot of fun they are great to work with and being on the Sunny Gold Coast what would be better then a Beach shoot.

We also took the opportunity while they were still in swimsuits to get some waterfall shots.

These shots were all taken with a Canon 6D and 100mm Macro lens, showing what a great portrait lens it is as well.

We will definitely be catching up with the Gasolina Girls again soon for some more shoots.

Bugs in Paradise !   1 comment

I spent the last few days out at Mount Barney staying at the lakeside cottage at Barney Creek Vineyard Cottages

It was a few days in paradise – lots of things to see and do – with Macro being my favourite Photography currently – thought I would start with some of the bugs I got there.

Macro – spiders and flys on the verandah   1 comment

Early last Sunday morning, I went for a walk in the garden and surrounding yard and was not finding much at all to photograph – so walking back to come inside along the verandah, on the post at the top of the stairs I see a little spider and while I am photographing him – a fly lands as well.

First up two photos of Jumping Spiders with a little flying any as prey.
