some recent bird shots. Taken with 7DII and tamron 150-600 lens
These were taken today at my local wetlands. its was just before the sun was dropping in the sky. This is one of the best times of the day. All shots were taken with either a 5DIII and a 50L lens or a 7DII with a 200 F2.8L lens. I can barely tell the two cameras apart sometimes
Around the streets classic car race, a yearly thing in my town
I spent some time with some fellow photographers out at the Stirling’s last weekend. Its less than an hours drive from my place yet I’m still in awe of the place even after all the years Ive been going there. Beautiful and pristine the Stirling Range near Albany is famous for its colourful wildflowers, bush walking and camping, its home to one of Western Australia’s highest peaks, Bluff Knoll, which rises more than a kilometre into the air. The photos of the Knoll were taken from the car park, there is plenty of bird-life out there too.

I live about 30 minutes from this area that has some amazing wineries and scenery. I was out there last weekend with some friends taking photos. The wineries there have some world class wine which we enjoyed tasting. Place is a photographers paradise although way nicer in the cooler weather.
Last weekend I photographed a wedding, for me the wedding itself is lovely but before the wedding and afterwards is where I find the photos can be interesting. Before you have all the getting ready, organising flowers, makeup, hair, jewelry and all the nervousness that goes with it for the bride. After the wedding you often have the guests milling around and children being children, its never boring. These are some from the wedding last weekend (click on each individual image to see larger)
So i had good intentions of getting out and about and shooting 52 mono wildlife shots this year but have had a change of mind. I notice i dont actually write enough on my blogs so I think its pretty boring for the viewer. So Im going to try and post a more diverse range of photos and descriptions of the kind of photos I take. This first batch are only a few weeks ago. I planned to catch the sunset out over at Sandpatch where our local windfarm is. It is one of the best places in Albany to catch a sunset. It seems as if every time I go out to do this Im rushed and only just get there in time. This time was the same, I hobbled down the path (ankle issues) and made it in time to capture this lovely colour. At the time there were many fires in the southwest and the smoke added to the colour I believe. anyway here are the shots I took.
