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

Bees in the park ( Roma Street Parklands)   1 comment

We had a Macro meetup on Saturday morning at Roma Street Parklands, having done a quick Macro explore the day before with my Macro Lens, thought I would try something different and chase Bees in flight with the 70-200.

Had various levels of success, but have ideas for when I attempt it again in the future ( probably wait until spring, as it was quite cool and there was few  Bees out and about).

Possibly my favourite – Take Off – Lifting off from the flower.

But back to basics, and to demonstrate the learning curve.

The best of my worst ones ( I would have deleted 20 worse then this).

You can tell my the noisy background, how much post processing was required to try and sharpen this Image to get it to this level.

Ok this one getting a little better.

Getting more keepers as I refined my technique.

A little more work required, to get the images, I would be totally happy with.

Cheers Dave

 

 

Rainbow Beach – A fleeting visit   1 comment

We were up Rainbow beach last wekend on the way to Inskip Point to visit family holidaying there.

We had limited time, but as always took the opportunity to get a few photographs.

The water was amazingly blue, such a lovely place.

A couple of Surfers.

Taken with the 7D with Kenko 1.4 extender and 70-200mm Lens.

Cheers Dave

A random Butterfly   Leave a comment

We were out the other week, scouting locations for a Portrait shoot, and this Butterfly flew across the path, stopped only for a minute, enabling me to quickly snap a photo, and it was gone.

Not the best Butterfly photo, I have taken, and he looks a little battered, but I still like it a lot, and felt the need to share.

Cheers Dave
