Back at Kalbarri

Back at Kalbarri in Westen Australia's mid-west region for a family holiday, I've been snapping some new pics of the area. Fitting photography in around a 1 year old's eat and sleep routine is not impossible but it does preclude photography at one of the ideal times of day: evening/sunset.…

Roebuck Plains

[caption id="attachment_1840" align="alignnone" width="1542"] I didn't imagine Australia had such large open grasslands, not natural anyhow. This is Roebuck Plains, taken on a tour with Broome Bird Observatory. Endless plains of grass you literally cannot see the end of, yet teaming with birds. The specks in the sky are birds.[/caption]

Fields of Gold

  A nice sunset with golden light on the farmland and clouds. A green grass tree in the foreground provides nice contrast to the scene beyond. A rainbow is visible in the far distance on the right horizon - a pot of gold at it's base perhaps? Taken in Gidgegannup, Western…

Dinner at Lake Leschenaultia

[caption id="attachment_1787" align="alignnone" width="475"] Lake Leschenaultia. This photograph would make an absolutely beautiful large wall print. Perhaps a high gloss acrylic or aluminium print.[/caption] The other night we took fish & chips to the local Lake Leschenaultia, to watch the sunset and enjoy the peace and quiet. It's pure serenity…

A cooperative Dragonfly

[caption id="attachment_1775" align="alignnone" width="1542"] Dragon Fly on lime tree[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1776" align="alignnone" width="931"] Dragon Fly on lime tree[/caption] I enjoyed the opportunity to photograph a strangely cooperative dragonfly the other night. It was nicely sitting on our lime tree.

NGC 1600 and Friends

[caption id="attachment_1768" align="alignnone" width="1801"] NGC 1600 and other galaxies. 5 x 180 second exposures. 0.84"/pixel scale.[/caption] I've had some fun reading about this galaxy NGC 1600 and annotating the above photograph with information. This image is from my standard nightly survey of galaxies and as such is only a brief…

Karri Forest – Tree

[caption id="attachment_1732" align="alignnone" width="1242"] Karri Forest - South-west Western Australia (Pemberton).[/caption] Looking through my Karri Forest gallery you will probably find very similar photographs to this from 8 odd years ago, probably taken with film! But the fact is I never tire of this kind of Karri Forest photograph, and…

Picture Perfect

[caption id="attachment_1729" align="alignnone" width="1242"] Picture Perfect - Yornup, Western Australia. Amazing green grass, winter sunshine, water, trees, fences .... what more could a photographer want? Back in July on our short trip down south. Tack sharp and oh so crystal clear. This was one of those times when the lighting,…
