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.

Cheers Dave

 

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

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

Kingfisher – captured at last   67 comments

I have been in a quest for a while to get a decent Photo of a Kingfisher, although not to the quality I would like, it is still a Photo of a Kingfisher, a fair crop from the actual photo, but flew away before I could get any closer.

Good thing is, that I now know where Mr Kingfisher hangs out, and will revisit the location again in a quest for more and better photos.

Bribie Island Sunset   1 comment

I was at Bribie about a month ago and captured this sunset.

There was very little cloud, but what was there captured the colour well

All taken with 7D and 17-55mm, handheld, no filters, colour captured in camera through white balance selection, very little post processing.

Cheers Dave
