Carnarvon Gorge – Awesome Part of Australia   2 comments

I was lucky to get out to Carnarvon Gorge last weekend – after a short 9 hour drive got there Friday just after lunch, do the maths backwards – was an early start.

Awesome is the only way to describe it.

Everything from beautiful nature, wildlife, and the Gorge itself is stunning – long bushwalks with so much to see – the 3 nights, 2 full days we were there was definitely not long enough.

First up just some random photos, and then I will get more organised and break it up into different themes for some more posts over the coming weeks.

Fog on the Farm – Pine Mountain Queensland   1 comment

I recently spent a week helping my cousin on his farm.

Woke up one morning , looked out the window to see  “Fog”

So quickly grabbed the camera and went out and took a few photos.

Taken with 7D and 17-55 lens.

Pelicans on the Pond   Leave a comment

I went back on Friday, to where I photographed (last  Saturday) the duck photos I put up yesterday, and was Please to see two Pelicans on the pond.

They were quite mobile paddling from one side to the other and back again.

 

Had to include this shot, the photos of birds I take going away from me, exceeds greatly the number I get good front shots of .

Taken with 7D and 70-200mm lens.

Cheers Dave

Anatidaephobia – The Fear That You are Being Watched by a Duck

I am sure I suffer from this 🙂

Below is a collection of Ducks caught watching me at a local Pond.

The below duck is going off at the white one for getting in it picture

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.

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.

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
