Fire Twirling   Leave a comment

One of the night time photography projects at Lake Maroon was Fire Twirling (actually burning steel wool)

My good friend Steve – was the twirler – and he has practised and makes it look easy, the third photo is my attempt at “twirling” – he has good circles and shapes – I end up with something resembling an evil pumpkin.

Certainly was fun, and will try again sometime soon hopefully.




450D/50 Photo 30 Fort Lytton   Leave a comment

While I was filling in some time last Sunday morning , I took the opportunity to call into Fort Lytton  a great place to visit, if you are interested in history of the local area, lost of artefacts, and a great collection of military items on display, defiantely worth a visit.

This time I visited without the crowds that were there last time I was there with the hosting of History Alive , a great opportunity for photographers to capture re enactors in uniforms of different periods.

Anyway my wandering around this time I capture these images.

All of these images taken with the 450D/50 combo.

Of course, this made me think of my visit to History Alive 2011, and so I went searching for some of my images, and this would have to be my favourite photo I captured there last year.

Cheers Dave

History Alive   1 comment

I recently attended History Alive , I was impressed with the dedication and detail the re-enactors go into.

Lots of Interesting things to see, next year will hopefully get to go both days.

I was lucky in a mate loaned me his 70-200mm F2.8 lens for the day.

My favourite photo of the day is this one.

This weekend I am off to the Abbey Medieval Festival, so hopefully will have some photos to post next week and get back into more regular blogging.

Cheers Dave
