Surfs Up – Currumbin Beach   Leave a comment

A few more from last Sunday, these were taken from the Viking Surf Life Saving Club at Currumbin, while were having a lovely breakfast of sausages and eggs.

Was a beautiful morning down there, once the clouds cleared,the sun came out, and the waves were huge, with a big high tide pushing through, great for some spectacular surfing displays

White Faced Heron – Nudgee Beach   Leave a comment

It has been while since I have blogged for various reasons – and have had some ongoing camera issues – well some of the issues might be me – so went out yesterday morning for a “testing ” session and ended up at Nudgee Beach.

I spotted this Grey Faced Heron in the Mangroves, and he behaved and did not fly away when I interrupted his hunting, insteadt just flew up into a tree for a clean while I loitered around below him.

Looks like I still have some issues with focussing – so more work to be done there.

But happy with these images.

Cheers Dave

 

Young, happy and inquisitive.   Leave a comment

We recently went away camping for a weekend, some of the friends we were with, had their grandaughter with them.

She was always happy, and very inquisitive,  we heard the word “why”  quite a few times.

One of the days we headed for a small exploratory road trip.

Some photos of her from the day.

Watching a Cup of Tea in the making.

We found an old train station

 

Cheers Dave

Girraween Kookaburras   Leave a comment

We recently spent the long weekend camping at Girraween National Park, with some great friends.

As always looking to photograph everything of interest there.

Below are some of the Kookaburra photos I took.

In Flight

This one was taken just before the one above, and it is the baby taking off, after the parent gave it a Lizard it had just caught.

Then there is this one, could not resist the Jekyll/Hyde comparrison.

All taken with the 7D and 70-200 lens.

Still a heap more photos to process.

Hope you like them.

Cheers Dave

Hamish !   3 comments

While I was out the farm, I took a few photos of Hamish, my cousins dog at play.

Isn’t he cute?

7D and 70-200mm lens, most shot at F4 to keep it shutter speed quick enough, but still give some depth of field, quite challenging to keep focus with him running towards me.

Cheers Dave
