White Faced Heron – Nudgee Beach   Leave a comment

It has been while since I have blogged for various reasons – and have had some ongoing camera issues – well some of the issues might be me – so went out yesterday morning for a “testing ” session and ended up at Nudgee Beach.

I spotted this Grey Faced Heron in the Mangroves, and he behaved and did not fly away when I interrupted his hunting, insteadt just flew up into a tree for a clean while I loitered around below him.

Looks like I still have some issues with focussing – so more work to be done there.

But happy with these images.

Cheers Dave

 

Pelicans – Inskip Point part 2   2 comments

The second post of the Pelicans from Inskip Point, this time from a flock of 11 as they flew over.

Quite an impressive sight to see.

Australasian Gannets   Leave a comment

Another Bird from the “Inskip Experiance”

Ok, had to do some research to identify this bird, appears to be a Australasian Gannet, it would have been close to 50metres from where I was, so these images are pretty decents crops from the actual photos taken.

I am still pretty excited, as do not recall ever seeing one before, and was quite chuffed with the capture.

Now to research them even more and get some better images, I love the colour and look of these birds, and there spectacular fishing style.

All taken with 7D and 70-200mm Lens.

Rainbow Beach – A fleeting visit   1 comment

We were up Rainbow beach last wekend on the way to Inskip Point to visit family holidaying there.

We had limited time, but as always took the opportunity to get a few photographs.

The water was amazingly blue, such a lovely place.

A couple of Surfers.

Taken with the 7D with Kenko 1.4 extender and 70-200mm Lens.

Ducks in the afternoon sun.   Leave a comment

We went to the local Duck Pond, last Sunday afternoon and I captured these Ducks  in the afternoon light.

I was using a Kenko 1.4 teleconvertor with the 70-200, to see if I could get some quality photos, verdict is ( if there is good light) yes, so may use this combination again.

Powerfest Lake Dyer in Laidley, Queensland post 1 “The Boats”   Leave a comment

Sunday, it is 4.30am and the alarm has just gone off, it is the middle of winter and it is cold, why am I up?

Because the gates to Powerfest open at 6.30, and we need to pick some friends up and get there early for a good spot on the edge of Lake Dyer, to see and hopefully capture the action of Power Boat Racing.

Powerfest is good, because there is also a Hot Rod Show and other displays to look at, will progressively post photos over the next few days of the different images I captured .

Today will be the Power Boats .

 

 

Most taken with Canon 7D and 70-200mm lens, a longer lens would have been good as these are all fairly large crops from the actual photo taken.

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
