Got back to the top end about a month ago. This time, I took the opportunity to visit Litchfield National Park. Here are a couple of stitched images from in the park – Well worth a visit if you are up in the Darwin region.
As always, these are available from my redbubble site: http://www.redbubble.com/people/adylord
Had the chance to visit the Northern Territory and drove from Darwin to Jabiru on the edge of the Kakadu National Park. On the way home, I stopped at Fogg Damm near Humpty Doo on the Arnhem highway. It was a fantastic place with plenty of birdlife (and a croc roaming about – Thankfully I didn’t see him!). This is taken from the lookout at the far side of the dam (only the bird life was a little more scarce over on this side).
As with my other work, this is available for purchase in a number of formats (post card, poster, print etc) from my Red Bubble site – http://www.redbubble.com/people/adylord/art/4853056-1-fogg-dam-wetlands
Hopefully will have the time to upload other pics from the trip soon!
Well…6 posts last year, I think I need to post a little more this year!
To kick off my photographic fun for this year, I joined a small group last Tuesday for some beach shots at sunset and then well into the evening.
Both of these were taken well after sunset. The first being a zoom in on the rocks shooting with 1 second exposure. The second however is a 15 second exposure. Good fun was had by all.
As always my work is available from Redbubble (http://adylord.redbubble.com)
OK, I know this is not my usual photography related post but I feel this is for a worthy cause!
Tomorrow (Monday 17/8/09) is RSPCA cupcake day. This is an event aimed to raise money and awareness of the RSPCA by creating animal themed cupcakes and offering them for sale. Pauline. my wife, decided that she as she is known in her workplace for her cupcakes, she would like to participate. We spent a good bit of today in the kitchen and made 48 cupcakes (yes me too!). These are the results of our efforts.
If somebody participates in cupcake day in your organisation, please give generously as this is a very worthy event.
Did anybody catch the sunset last night (Sunday)? It was pretty magnificient! I was strolling about Fremantle with the family and some friends and we thought it was pretty good. But just as we sat down at Sweetlips for some fish and chips (Damn good fish and chips by the way!) we noticed the last few minutes of the sunset were so much better!
Quick action was needed so I deserted them at the table, grabbed the camera and went to the beach for some pics. It was only then that I noticed the reflections of colour in the waterline. A great evening topped with a great sunset!
I have been working down south through the last week and staying in Bunbury. When we got the opportunity, we got out with the cameras.
Here are few of my pics….(click for a larger image)
However, this morning turned on an amazing sunrise. I don’t know what it was like in Perth but in Bunbury it was magnificient! So, on our way to work, we stopped at this intersection and took a few photos.
The other night, a couple of collegues and I stopped alongside the Coalfields highway about 20 KM west of Collie. Initially we were taking shots of the full moon and the well lit-up Worsley Alumina refinery (probably about 10KM away).
After a few poor attempts at these shots, I turned my camera to the highway and started shooting 10 second exposures along the highway.
As I am currently working away from home, this pic is completly straight from the camera with no post processing. Also, as we did not intend to stop, this was taken from a wobbly telstra post made 200mm pipe and not my more stable tripod!
Not sure exactly who is watching this blog but I just wanted to wish you all a very merry Christmas!
2008 has certainly brought many challenges and certainly been a great year for getting out with friends on photoshoots – I have enjoyed them all (even getting to South Perth by 6am!). Each time brings more challenges to conquer. So, lets be sure that we get out and about just as much or maybe even more in 2009.
So, make sure you all have a very safe Christmas and I look forward to seeing you all in 2009.
Yesterday morning, a small group of us got together before dawn and shot a few photos around the Old Swan Brewery / Crawley area. This was also great for me as it was the first chance I could put my new 40-150mm lens to the test. I was impressed afer shooting 14-45mm for so long!
This is the Old Swan brewery – The original building was built in 1877 and serviced as a brewery for many years before becoming run down. It was then refurbished and reopened as a cafe and restaurant complex. I had the opportunity to dine there last year for Breakfast and it was a fantastic morning – Highly recommended.Newer Posts »
