Girraween Kookaburras   Leave a comment

We recently spent the long weekend camping at Girraween National Park, with some great friends.

As always looking to photograph everything of interest there.

Below are some of the Kookaburra photos I took.

In Flight

This one was taken just before the one above, and it is the baby taking off, after the parent gave it a Lizard it had just caught.

Then there is this one, could not resist the Jekyll/Hyde comparrison.

All taken with the 7D and 70-200 lens.

Still a heap more photos to process.

Hope you like them.

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.

Lake Moogerah – Black Swans   Leave a comment

We detoured to Lake Moogerah on the way home last Monday, was raining, but still stopped to get a couple of quick photos of the Black Swans on the lake.

Will have to come back in finer weather with a longer lens, to get some more “individual” shots of the beautiful birds.

There was a few Pelicans there too.

Taken in the rain, testing the weather sealing on the 7D and 70-200mm lens.

Cheers Dave

Galah  – Pink Cockatoo, although these birds are quite common, I am still struggling to get a photo, I am entirely happy with of this lovely pink coloured bird.

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.

Cheers Dave

Toogoolawah Rodeo   Leave a comment

Yesterday. I was lucky enough to get out to the Toogoolawah Rodeo, have not been to a Rodeo in living memory.

I managed to get a few decent shots, shooting anything fast moving can be challenging, and with limited lighting, was only really able to succesfully shoot until dark.

 

 

Taken with 7D and either 70-200 F2.8 or 100mm Macro F2.8.

Hopefully will be able to do a few blog posts this week.

Cheers Dave
