The Witch Widjirriejuggi and the fate of the 3 brothers of the Birpai tribe

North Brother, the European name (by Captain Cook) for the hill in the distance and the place where one of the Dreamtime legend Birpai tribe brothers rests.

Like the Napoleon advertisement, its a crime not to prime view large 🙂

It was a bit wild and woolley out this evening – look carefully and you can see the lightning in two places on the right of the image – don't ask how i stitched a image and got two lighting bolts 😉 its a long story 😉 6 landscape orientation images stitched.

Sometimes its worthwhile braving the elements for a shot and this was one such time, although i and others have questioned my sanity here considering the hill (north brother) in the distance did get fried by lightning 🙂 and I was considering heading up there for sunset 🙂

Well it is that time of year again, sculptures by the sea, a great time to view the scenery at Glamamara.

View large, you know its a crime not to!

As usual and its becoming a dirty habit, +Suren J and +Rodney Campbell and myself get together and smash some light all in the name of trying to create something different than the run of the mill sculpture shots.

Its a wild world out there in sculptures by the sea, there must be a million bucks in photography gear alone on each given day as enthusiasts flock to grab a shot.

anyway, the ball full of water was on my list of ones to do – given the security guard was not gonna let us anywhere near the actually ball (grr) meant that i was not gonna get to do my bum cheeks against the ball, or my GP-5 mask or any EL wire….party poopers..

anyway so the following had to suffice. a pair of 15 dollar lasers (less than 1mw – so don't get excited or ) and coloured torch was all that was needed.

+Rodney Campbell on the red colour and myself and +Suren J on the lasers, however i think suren was more interested in lighting up the nudie couple in the house across the bay.

traffic

One can never have too many images of city with the worst traffic, well i am sure I am being a bit over dramatic, however.

The day some politician actually builds a second airport in Sydney will be a day of celebration….

or they could just let the floating helipad go ahead 🙂

Imagine being able to land right here 😉

Welcome to the little pothole

Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House long exposure, like any landscape shot (and I use that loosely since this image could almost be a cityscape too) often getting the right dynamic range can be a challenge, even with newer, more sensitive sensors often you still need to employ additional techniques to achieve the desired dynamic range, especially when trying to replicate what your eyes saw on the day.

The bigstopper adds another level of complexity to it, these tend to add quite a bit of vignetting, (for my lens anyway) so one must also combat this issue also.

The many shades of Tamarama

I am finding that my Seascape sessions are no longer complete without some kind of x-tych. Often images that are not strong enough to hold themselves up really shine in concert with others.

Thats making the best of mediocre images for ya 🙂

View large, if at all.

Thanks to +Suren J and +Rodney Campbell for the company.

The world underneath

Bradley's Head Marine Nav-Aid

What I love about sunrise is that you are never gonna know were the colour is gonna turn up (if at all) and when it does, all you can do is just make do with what angle, POV, or feature you can. I would have loved to be in another position to take more advantage of the sweet colours, but alas, this sliver of Sydney Harbour has to suffice.

Bradleys Head and the Navigation tower – probably one of the most photographic marine nav aids in sydney too :)

nothing like a sunday morning sunrise in Sydney, some reno's happening at Bradleys head but you can still access the foreshore and amphitheater.

Not a bad pano considering I had just rolled down the hill with a four year old….probably rolled in multiple dog craps on the way down

Sydney Park – the biggest dog park in the inner west and if i see some not picking up their dogs crap I will punch them in the throat.
