Days are getting shorter

27 Apr

As the days shorten, the sunsets seem to be getting more intense.

Back to Sunsets

What more can I say.  We have a great view that provides the opportunity to see some lovely sunsets.

Clouds rolling in

The clouds were rather interesting tonight.

Panorama sunset

7 Mar

The light tonight was amazing.  Had a very pink hue.  The stitching of the panorama is not perfect but the overall effect is close to what I saw.

Sunset Joy

2 Mar

Tonight was a gorgeous sunset.  As we move into Autumn the position of the setting sun is shifting, which means less building interference 🙂

No Powerlines

21 Feb

Tonight I noticed a couple of visitors in the back yard.  I quietly headed out the front door and peeped around the side of the house.  One cute wallaby.

This was just on sundown so of course the sunset then captured my attention.  Best of all I was able to use lightroom to remove the powerlines.

Sunset effects

16 Feb

Tonight the light was creating three different effects as the sun went down.

Looking west towards the sunset there is the hint of colour looking through he shrubbery.

Next I’m not sure I quite got the photo right, but looking north you can see the fading sun bouncing off the hill

Finally looking east.  A reflected sunset?  A moonrise perhaps?

Luncheon with new friend

10 Feb

Today I met face to face with a new internet friend.  We both laughed and talked a lot.  We also both remembered the first time we met face to face with someone from the internet – Oh no, what if they are an axe murderer?  Suffice to say neither of us are axe murderers, but we did manage to polish off a long lunch, and maybe I forgot to take a photo before digging in to dessert 😉

Tonight I had another play with night shots or late sunset photos.  I’m thinking I might be getting the hang of it.  I downloaded a trial copy of lightroom today, but that is a whole new world of skills I need to learn.  So for now, I’m sticking with simple crops as my only edit.

Gorillapod

6 Feb

So I’m tired of poor focus/motion blur/can’t hold it still on my macro attempts.  Finally today I said to He Who Suffers, I’ve had enough.  I need a small, light, easy to use tripod for my macro shots.  He came home with a Gorillapod Focus.

A cool new toy to play with.  Ok and it’s not being used for a macro shot here.  An important feature is that the connector plate is completely interchangeable on his big tripod, a one size fits both arrangement 🙂

And just to prove I can, a sunset photo taken with remote control app on my iPhone.

Mixing it up.

4 Feb

I started today playing with macro shots again.  Verdict?  Need to use a tripod.

Tonight I had another session with full moon shots.  Cloud free tonight, but I’m not sure how how I got the ghost green moon.

When I pointed the camera towards the sunset I found better shots – I think.
