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.

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.

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.

Caloundra Sunrise   Leave a comment

A few more of my Calounda sunrise photos from last week.

Would of liked some more light clouds for more colour, but was still a magical morning anyway.

Will be a while before we can get up there again, but will be revisiting this location again when we do.

Both taken with 7D and 17-55mm Lens, with Cokin Graduated ND filters.

Point Cartwright, Sunshine Coast, Queensland Sunrise   3 comments

Managed to get up and on the road by 3.30am for the (1.5hour) drive up the coast to Caloundra to capture Sunrise from Point Cartwright on Wednesday (25-04).

Driving up, we could see there was some heavey cloud to the east, but hopeful it would lift to give some colour with the predawn/sunrise.

This is what we captured.

The Predawn

A little later, the sun can be seen on the horizon.

Taken with 7D, and 17-55lens, using Cokin Graduated filters.

Revisiting the past – Ningi Sunrise 2009   Leave a comment

I have been running out of storage on my external hard drives, and decided instead of buying another one, would go back and delete some of the duplicate and poorer quality photos.

Of course all that made me do was rediscover old photos and want to edit them, regretting not shooting in RAW from the start.

A sunrise from 2009, at Pebble Beach, Ningi, which is near Bribie Island in Queensland.

Taken with 450D and 55-250 kit lens.

Cheers Dave

Gum Trees   Leave a comment

Another from my visit to Mount Nebo on the weekend, this time some native Australian Gum Tree.

Love the character of these trees, although they do have a habit of dropping limbs, not good if you are underneath.

Taken with the 7D and various lenses.

Cheers Dave
