Carnarvon Gorge – The trees   Leave a comment

One of the most beautiful things about a place like this is the nature – and trees from a big part of that.

The was some very impressive tall trees here – and that in it self became a challenge to show off their majestic height.

Below is my attempt to capture this.

Some of the trees had interesting trunks.

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

Sunset on the Farm – Pine Mountain Queensland.   1 comment

More of  my farm photos from last week, this time a sunset.

Was working on the Farm into the afternoon, saw the clouds building and hope they stay until the sun went down, which luckily they did, so grabbed the camera and took some quick shots.

Taken with 7D and 17-55 lens.

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

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

Shooting the Shoot   Leave a comment

I went up to Mount Nebo on the weekend for a Sundayt BBQ, while we were there, Kerri and Julie-Anne were doing some Model Photography Practise.

Dualling Cameras

A Natural Rural setting provides a great backdrop.
