Fog on the Farm – Pine Mountain Queensland   1 comment

I recently spent a week helping my cousin on his farm.

Woke up one morning , looked out the window to see  “Fog”

So quickly grabbed the camera and went out and took a few photos.

Taken with 7D and 17-55 lens.

Cheers Dave

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.

Fishing in the Dam   Leave a comment

I was out at Jondaryan Woolshed on the weekend, and while there spotted this White Heron, fishing in the Dam.

Taken at a fair distance, so cropped a reasonable amount to get the above image, 7D with 70-200mm shot at F4.

Horsepower of a different kind   Leave a comment

Ok, after visiting mate mates workshop in previous post, I then went around to another mates place to catch up, and spend the night there, while I was up that way before heading home.

So of course, first thing in the morning I go to the Dam down the back, to see what bird life is about.

Now to do that, you have to walk through the paddock with “Kingsley” the horse.

Who then decided he would join me down on the fence overlooking the Dam, and obviously thought the grass was greener on the other side .

Taken with 7D and 70-200mm Lens.

Raining and generally a miserable day here today, but still did not stop us going for a drive, to see what we could find.

I saw the finished photo in this shot before I took it.

Took a little manipulation in Photoshop to fully achieve that goal.

Cheers Dave
