Anatidaephobia – The Fear That You are Being Watched by a Duck

I am sure I suffer from this ūüôā

Below is a collection of Ducks caught watching me at a local Pond.

The below duck is going off at the white one for getting in it picture

White Herons   Leave a comment

On the way to a friends house for dinner last Saturday night, we met at a pond down the road first to take some Bird photos.

Below are some different White Heron photos, I like these majestic, almose noble birds.

We were lucky they roosted in a tree close to the bank,¬†using¬†the camera’s flash for this one, as by now it was dusk, and light was failing.

These smaller Herons were roosting in trees in the middle of the lake.

Taken with 7D and 70-200mm Lens.

Beautiful Dead Roses   Leave a comment

Most people  like to see fresh flowers, and they can be very colourful and bright.

These started out like that, but then began to fade, and I saw a new beauty in them.

I love the browning of the edges of the petals,the pastels colours and the new shapes as the petalsstart to  droop.

Taken with 7D and Canon 60mm and 100mm macro ( non IS, not the L series 100mm lens I usualy use) lenses

Powerfest Lake Dyer in Laidley, Queensland post 1 “The Boats”   Leave a comment

Sunday, it is 4.30am and the alarm has just gone off, it is the middle of winter and it is cold, why am I up?

Because the gates to Powerfest open at 6.30, and we need to pick some friends up and get there early for a good spot on the edge of Lake Dyer, to see and hopefully capture the action of Power Boat Racing.

Powerfest is good, because there is also a Hot Rod Show and other displays to look at, will progressively post photos over the next few days of the different images I captured .

Today will be the Power Boats .

 

 

Most taken with Canon 7D and 70-200mm lens, a longer lens would have been good as these are all fairly large crops from the actual photo taken.

Cheers Dave

Lake Moogerah – Black Swans   Leave a comment

We detoured to Lake Moogerah on the way home last Monday, was raining, but still stopped to get a couple of quick photos of the Black Swans on the lake.

Will have to come back in finer weather with a longer lens, to get some more “individual” shots of the beautiful birds.

There was a few Pelicans there too.

Taken in the rain, testing the weather sealing on the 7D and 70-200mm lens.

Cheers Dave
