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 turned one into a “Merry Christmas” Card for their website

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.

Cheers Dave

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

 

Pelicans – Inskip Point part 2   2 comments

The second post of the Pelicans from Inskip Point, this time from a flock of 11 as they flew over.

Quite an impressive sight to see.

Australasian Gannets   Leave a comment

Another Bird from the “Inskip Experiance”

Ok, had to do some research to identify this bird, appears to be a Australasian Gannet, it would have been close to 50metres from where I was, so these images are pretty decents crops from the actual photos taken.

I am still pretty excited, as do not recall ever seeing one before, and was quite chuffed with the capture.

Now to research them even more and get some better images, I love the colour and look of these birds, and there spectacular fishing style.

All taken with 7D and 70-200mm Lens.

Seagulls – Yes Seagulls – Inskip Point.   Leave a comment

We were up at Inskip Point last weekend, to visit family on Holidays there, as always looking for “Birding” opportunities.

So being at the beach, there was Seagulls in abundance, and while waiting for more interesting victims, they were the obvious targets.

Pelicans   Leave a comment

Inskip Point had an abundance of Bird Life, so may continue posting them for a few days ( and also because I have had to work and not gone out and taken any more photos since (except a quick sunset last night).

So bird of choice for today, I thought should be the Pelican, it is Saturday here, and they seem a very “saturday” sort of bird.

Is there any photo that says weekend better then a photo of  aYacht, Pelicans, sand and water?

.

Okay, there should be more Pelican photos, but not saved on this hard drive, will have to do a second Pelican post then sometine later.

All taken with 7D and 70-200mm Lens

Cheers Dave
