There’s a mountain top that i am dreamin’ of, if you need me you’ll know where to find me.
Never take life for granite and make sure someone has got your back.
Sometimes in life you just need someone there to break the back of the wind, not to take it all away, but take the edge away.
This little tree and his rock pal were a pair of standouts on this hill up from the Thredbo River, not a majestic snow gum yet, but hopefully one day it will take the place of so many of the old and falling snowgums.
Thelma Point. I visited this little spot some years and have always wanted to get back with the right conditions, its a fine balance between too much water flowing over the rockshelf and not enough to create a nice cascade.
Its also a good reminder to watch the sea and never assume that just cause there has not been any waves come across for 5 or 10 minutes that its all sweet. This spot, on this morning, had some odd rhythms to it, it would go almost 12 or 15 minutes without a wave making it over the shelf, then you get a whole bunch, like 5 or 6 waves that would nail it.. and when those bunker busters are pounding the pavement its hard to hold your own
Taken with the very nice KaseFilters 1.2 grey graduated filter for a shutter speed of 1/4s
I think I am pretty impressed with this 20mm f1.4 lens, being able to shoot at iso 1250 or 1600 and 15 seconds and still get so much light in is just great – now lens manufacturer’s.. all i really want now is 14mm f1.4
This image actually quite simple, its 7 shots stitched together to create the vertical panorama, there is no composite foreground, no stacking for the milkyway and its pretty much what you see with the naked eye, well probably a bit brighter…
Trying out the Kase Filters Australia Night Pollution 2mm slide in filter.
Last time I was here the building on the left was but a bunch of electronic lines in some ex dubai’s architects computer – now its the dominator on the Sydney skyline.
Whilst it has some nice curves, it really seems to lack any real pizzazz, something to make you go, wow that looks awesome or standout amoungst the rest of the glass and concrete sitting around. Maybe I am alittle harsh on my civil brethren, the world of aviation has not really set things alight in terms of revolutionally design’s, (other than saving a bunch of weight and pretty displays)
