Revisiting the past ” The Road to Lake Eyre “   Leave a comment

Still going through the old photos from 2009, these all were taken with probably less then a months ownership of my first DSLR.

I probably did not learn to use it properly until over a year later ( sometimes I think I still do not know what I am doing)

This photo was taken on the road leading into Lake Eyre.

Lake Eyre itself was not what I expected , was so barren going in, a bit like you would expect a “Lunar” landscape to look like,  was hardly any birdlife, still do not regret the trip and would go back again if I ever got the chance.

Cheers Dave

I was down in Melbourne in October for a Christening, while we were down there took the opportunity to go to Belgrave just under a hours drive outside of Melbourne.

I love old things, and especially old mechanical things, so what could be better then an Old Steam Train.

We got a good vantage point to get it coming across an old Trestle Bridge.

Converted to Sepia, to enhance the “old” feel to the image.

A second one in colour.

Well worth the visit if you ever get to Melbourne, and have time to go out there.

Cheers Dave

450D/50 Photo 10 Sepia Brisbane   Leave a comment

Went out ot get some “Bakery” bread, and stopped at Bartleys Hill Lookout for a quick shot of Brisbane, no clouds to add interest to the sky, and sun reflecting a bit to strongly off some buildings to work in colour, so a quick conversion, and I have a “old style” photo, I am happy with,  what do you think?

Canon 450D/ 50mm F1.8 lens, Shot in Raw, processed in CS5, F8, 1./60 Manual.

Cheers Dave
