Little Manly Fishermen

Went down to Little Manly with Liz to have a quick birthday dinner and watch the sunset.  I got out my new 70-200mm L series and handheld shot some photos whilst eating dinner.  It was a nice evening to be out

North Avoca Sunset


Went down to North Avoca with Tim Bolger to shoot sunset.  Took a while to find a comp that I liked.  As the sun was setting I had my big stopper on and missed the pink clouds, but I got this just before sunset.  Definitely a place I will be heading back to and reshoot, maybe a sunrise next time… (now I know how to find the place).

Forresters

Technical Specs: f/13, 1.3 secs, 24mm, ISO100, 18 January 2011, 7:44pm, canon 5d mkii, canon l series 24-70mm lens, lee soft graduated filter 0.9

Forresters at Dusk – Panoramic

My panoramic is finally manually stitched from last night’s shoot.  This is a series of 8 shots taken in portrait orientation.  Specs: f/18, ISO100, 10 secs per frame, 24mm, 8:13pm-8:15pm, 18 January 2011.  I thought I would upload something different from Forresters – I have a few seascape shots as well, but will upload those as they are processed.  Hope you like this one.

Forresters at Dusk!

It’s about time I got back out on the beaches to shoot some seascapes.  I met up with Danny, Tim and Jasiah down at Forresters Beach on the Central Coast to capture tonight’s sunset.  The cloud was a bit thick to filter much colour through, so it was an overcast shoot – but still so nice to shoot Forresters – always something different to compose.  I found my favourite rock to shoot and this is the first out of a few shots that I got tonight.

Technical Specs: f/14, 10 sec, 8:17pm, 24mm, lee grad filter 0.9, 24-70mm l series, canon 5d mark ii

Chrysalis

My nephew, Andrew found this outside of the unit I am staying at.  It was so gold and green I just had to get an image of it.  Will see what it looks like tomorrow… maybe it’ll be gone…

Broadwater “Body” of Water

 

Happy New Year!  Thought I would see the New Year in differently this year, went out and saw the fireworks at Broadbeach and decided to set the alarm for 3:50am to see the first day of the New Year in properly with a sunrise shoot.  The sky didn’t turn out as I was hoping, it looked pinkish at around 4:00am but the cloud cover and wind picked up and I got a dreary/wet sunrise shoot, but still nice to get up that early on the 01/01/11.  This photograph is a 3 image stitch, shot at 4:29am, f/13, 90secsx3, ISO100, 24mm, canon 5d mkii, lee soft grad filter 0.6.

If you look to the left of the image to the top right of the swimming enclosure, there is a lump in the water, I didn’t think much about it until I got back to my MacBook and blew up the image to 100%.  It looked like a man lying face down in the water, dark hair, blue shorts, brown t-shirt.  Thought I had better ring it in just in case.  Maybe he had too hard of a night to see in the New Year.  Luckily, I was told that it was just the tie down for the swimming float fence.  Much to my relief and embarrassment 🙂

The weather is nice and hot today so I may head out for a sunset shoot tonight… no floods here which is a good thing 🙂
