450D/50 Photo 31 “Skippy’s”   Leave a comment

With the recent rain, I have not been out taking photos lately

So thought I would share another photo from my recent trip to Toorbul

A pair of Kangaroos watching me from the foreshore park.

Taken with the 450D/50 combo, hardly any processing or cropping at all, they really were that close.

Cheers Dave

 

450D/50 Photo 30 Fort Lytton   Leave a comment

While I was filling in some time last Sunday morning , I took the opportunity to call into Fort Lytton  a great place to visit, if you are interested in history of the local area, lost of artefacts, and a great collection of military items on display, defiantely worth a visit.

This time I visited without the crowds that were there last time I was there with the hosting of History Alive , a great opportunity for photographers to capture re enactors in uniforms of different periods.

Anyway my wandering around this time I capture these images.

All of these images taken with the 450D/50 combo.

Of course, this made me think of my visit to History Alive 2011, and so I went searching for some of my images, and this would have to be my favourite photo I captured there last year.

Cheers Dave

Chained Dragon   Leave a comment

A photo from the weekend, I captured while wandering around Fort Lytton, near the Port of Brisbane.

There were dragon flys, flying around everywhere, but I struggled to capture them on pretty flowers or a plant of any description for the natural look I was hoping for, but they would stay  still on this piece of chain.

Both shot with 7D, with 70-300mm L series lens.

Cheers Dave

Canon 450D/50 Photo 27 “Ship Wrecked”   1 comment

I headed down to Manly tyesterday morning, thinking of capturing some reflections of the boats in the Harbour, bit it was too windy, so headed around the corner to the creek, where I have captured some interesting images in the past.

So todays post with the Canon 450D/50 is the below two images .

The next photo, is three bracketed images merged into one usung HDR technique.

I got a little muddy, walking through the mangroves to get the first one, but all part of the joy of photography.

Cheers Dave
