Carnarvon Gorge 4 – the Cycads   Leave a comment

I used to grow palm and cycads – and had quite a collection – but doing a lot of travelling and now living in a unit, that is a thing of the past.

I have not lost my interest in these plants – and love finding and seeing them grow in the wild.

So to see the vast number of Cycads (Macrozamia moorei) growing in this National Park was awesome – and most were in seed – big bright orange/red seeds – deserves a second awesome for that.

Ok usually each Blog post only has three photos – but some of these were too nice not to post.

I took a lot of photos of these plants – cutting it down to five was very hard .

How old must this plant be – 100s of years maybe.

Pretty coloured seeds against the green of the plant – beautiful.

Rows of them – thousands of them in this park.

Christmas Dog Shoot – support   Leave a comment

I helped my girlfriend Kerri ( of KerriShutterbug ) do a Christmas photoshoot of her two dogs recently.

Took a few shots between her more staged ones and thought I would post them as a midnight (our time anyway) Christmas Eve post.

Shadow (laughing at my attempts to get her to look at me) on left and Maddi  (with the “what are you doing” look) on right.

 

Maddi, not entirely happy with proceedings.

Canon 7D with 24-105lens- studio lights.

A Bunch of Flowers – Candids   2 comments

Okay, it would have been easey to shoot the whole bunch of flowers, and they looked very pretty, but there was no fun in that.

So here are some “Candids” from a bunch of flowers.

Last Saturday I was happy to be  able to attend the Abbey Medieval Festival at Caboolture.

Having attended in previous years, I was ready for a lot of different photo opportunities and was not disappointed.

Tonight I will start with the Foot Knights and post other topics over the coming days.

Overlooked Macro   Leave a comment

I was going back sorting through old photos ( trying to create more memory by deleting excess/duplicate/bad photos) and found a file of unposted macro photos from February.

Never realised caterpillars had wierd “Feeler” type things.

The full Caterpillar

A Colourful Grasshopper (Locust)  to finish the set.

Taken with 7D and a  100mm L macro lens

Revisiting the past ” Kings Canyon” part 1   Leave a comment

The main purpose of my Central Australia trip in 2009, was to visit friends working at Kings Canyon.

I am still going through old photos and editing the better ones, more up to  mycurrent standard of processing.

Below are 5 photos from a walk through the Canyon itself.

You can see from the colour of the rocks, why they call it the :Red Centre”

I have saved my favourite of this lot to last.

Still have hundreds to go through.

Cheers Dave
