Photo details: ISO 160, 12.3mm, f/4.6, 1/1000 sec

But it takes two to tangle!

Just a reminder if you’d like to see what up I’m up to currently Facebook and Instagram are the way to go! Links to both can be found at the bottom of this page!

Where: Roches Beach, Lauderdale, Tasmania

When: 8 March 2017

Equipment: Canon 70D with a Canon 18-135mm lens

Photo details: ISO 100, 22mm, f/22, 1/30sec

Editing: Minor editing down in Lightroom CC

Notes: Took advantage of some mild weather to haul my body and soul down to the beach to watch the sunrise. It was beautiful. Just as I was about to leave, these two gentlemen climbed out of their car, launched their boat and took off quick smart. They weren’t wasting any time!

Resting beach face

Where: Howrah Beach, Tasmania

When: 17 March 2017

Equipment: Canon 70D with a Canon 18-135mm lens

Photo details: ISO 100, 18mm, f/11, 1/160sec

Editing: Minor adjustments done in Lightroom CC

Notes: Another from the Canon Collective Festival shoot here in Tasmania. Had a very convenient cloud hanging above Mt Wellington as we watched the sunset. I think it looks a little like a halo. Does that make Hobart the new city for angels?

You Sun of a …

…Beach!

Where: Howrah Beach, Tasmania

When: 17 March 2017

Equipment: Canon 70D with a Canon 18-135mm lens

Photo details: ISO 100, 19mm, f/14, 1/160sec

Editing: Minor adjustments done in Lightroom CC

Notes:A bit of a last minute decision for me to go down to the beach for this shoot. The Canon Collective crew had arrived in the state the day before and I found out just before bed that night that they were here. If you haven’t heard of it, neither had I until this point. They a group of talented people who hold photography workshops on a regular occasion. They were holding a Tasmania festival over the weekend with majority of the sessions free – worth it if you ever get a chance. They were blessed with perfect warm weather (though some argued that they were wearing jumpers!) and clear skies. This photo is one from my shoot on the beach with them.

What is an astronauts favourite key on the keyboard?

The space bar!

Still working on getting my mass of new photos sorted and edited. In the mean time enjoy this one!

Where: Taroona Beach, Tasmania

When: 3 March 2017

Equipment: Canon 70D with a Tokina 11-16mm lens

Photo details: ISO 1600, 11mm, f/2.8, 30 sec

Editing: Minor adjustments done in Lightroom CC

Notes: This was taken the same night as “If prefer to describe myself as delightfully difficult…“. The aurora had died off again, so I turned my attention to the glorious milky way – with a touch of the aurora at the bottom. I miss living out of town for the pure reason that I have to drive and leave the city to see the stars whereas when I lived in rural Victoria all I had to do was step out my back door . . .

Not quite Sleeping Beauty

 

Where: Taroona Beach, Tasmania

When: 27 October 2016

Equipment: Canon 70D with a Tokina 11-16mm lens

Photo details: ISO 800, 11mm, f/2.8, 30.0 secs

Editing: Minor adjustments done in Lightroom CC

Notes: Sadly missed the most active time for this aurora. But it was a pleasant evening out, on a mostly clear night (in comparison to some of the aurora opportunities lately). And as a side note, I did realise it was the first time I’d used my Tokina lens for night photography, despite having bought it a year earlier. Thrilled with the results, and you’ll see more posted no doubt.

I can sea clearly now

 

A little bit of a late comment I suppose, but please excuse the mass addition of posts. I have a few already edited images so I decided to get them up and online sooner than later.

And get use to the puns and jokes. I’m enjoying them!

What do you call a seagull when it flies over the bay?

 

Answer: A Bagel!

Bad I know, so onto the more important stuff.
