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.

More Water Lilies   1 comment

I had the opportunity to stop at the Mount Cootha Botanical Gardens, on the way to visit a friend on Sunday.

I was intending to do some more macro work, but as time was against me, only really managed to look around the pond.

I am starting to like photographing Water Lilies as much as Water Dragons, and had both to shoot here.

A couple of the Water Lilies photos

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
