Early Fire Season

18 Oct

It’s only October and already the resident Fire Fighter has been called to action more than once. ¬†I’m hoping that the rest of the Summer is much quieter.

Lunch with a friend

I met up with a friend who has a new camera, new toys are the best ūüôā

Calla Lillies

My friend has a courtyard garden attached to her embroidery shop.  Last week I arrived just after a rain shower which was perfect.  The sun came out shining as I was shooting.

Macro Flowers

10 Oct

I spent a bit of time today pottering with my container garden.  Filling pots with colour, planting a few new plants and generally having fun playing in the dirt.  Of course the next step after planting flowers is to take photos of them.

Aurora Australis

8 Oct

Doing the happy dance. ¬†We headed out for a better vantage point to try to take a photo of The Southern Lights. ¬†A quick trip to Park Beach, Dodges Ferry and my first attempt at capturing the lights. ¬†I remember as a kid sitting in the back yard and watching the colours bounce all around the sky. ¬†Tonights show was much more subtle and more like a laser light pointing into the sky at times. ¬†Suffice to say I’m a bit happy with what I caught. ¬†Thanks to #Bom_Tas for the Aurora alert notice.

Star Trails

7 Oct

I’ve wanted to try my hand at capturing star trails for a while now. ¬†The timing has just never been right. ¬†Tonight we got a message from a friend saying the Southern Lights were shining. ¬†Being quicker to the tripod I got first dibs and this is one of the images I captured.
