I’m a fungi…

… and people lichen me.

Where: Mt Field National Park, Tasmania

When:21 June 2015

Equipment: Canon 1100D with a Tamron 18-270mm lens

Photo details: ISO 1600, 46mm, f/5.0, 1/60 sec

Editing: Minor adjustments done in Lightroom CC

Notes: Mt Field is a fantastic area to look in. Even the short walk to Russell Falls presents so many awesome things to photography – beautiful rainforest, tiny fungi, the Falls of course and at night there’s glow worms!

Dancing is like a bank robbery…

… It takes split second timing. Sometimes aurora hunting is the same!

Where: Taroona Beach, Tasmania

When: 7 January 2015

Equipment: Canon 1100D with a Tamron 18-270mm lens

Photo details: ISO 1600, 18mm, f/3.5, 10 sec

Editing: Minor adjustments done in Lightroom CC

Notes: While it can be hit and miss catching a good aurora show, it wasn’t this night. It was a balmy clear night, with a spectacular show that lasted for hours. And although the moon (which can wash out aurora shows) was just past full, it didn’t rise till closer to the middle of the night. This gave us a good couple of hours before it started to affect our viewing.

I need some time to reflect

 

Where: Constitution Dock, Hobart. Looking across the water to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.

When: 12 June 2015

Equipment: Canon 1100D with a Tamron 18-270mm lens

Photo details: ISO 1600, 18mm, f/3.5, 1/15 sec

Editing: Minor adjustments done in Lightroom CC

Notes: This was during Dark Mofo 2015. The beam actually pulsed with the heart beat of the person at the control panel. Not as awesome a light display as they’ve had previous years for the festival, but it did make for some fun shots for photographers in the middle of a cold winter’s night.

All rainbows and happiness

 

First post! Wooooo!!

Where: Taken from West Hobart, Tasmania looking across to the other side of the river. Around about Lindisfarne

When: 18 September 2016

Equipment: Canon 70D with a Tamron 18-270mm lens

Photo details: ISO 250, 119mm, f/5.6, 1/320 sec

Editing: Minor adjustment, done in Lightroom CC

Notes: Tasmania has the best rainbows I swear. Back when I was living in Victoria rainbows were never as vivid. This one appeared very shortly before sunset after a dark cloudy day.
