Quiet Thursdays: Grey Outside and Not Much Else
The weather here is very unpredictable at the moment and the forecast for the next week is shower or two every day. So we are going to be getting wet a lot. It is frustrating, but it has also been windy, so I should get some great opportunities to get out with my ND filters to do some long exposures. I don’t have the Formatt Hitech ones yet, but I can still take my Lee Big Stopper out and see what I can do with it. I have some plans.
I’ve been out a few times to take photos, which is always good and I’ve been putting some photos up on Social Media sites like my Facebook Page and Google+. Some are from Instragram and others I took with my Nikon D800. I have one of the full moon that I took the other night with the Tamron SP 150-600mm lens, I think I am getting better at doing them.
There are three images of the same bridge, the Seafarers Bridge in the city. One taken with my phone and the other two with my Nikon D800. Two taken at sunset, and one taken very early in the morning.
There is a photo of a cattle egret that I got at Banyule Flats. It was just sitting on top of one of the dead trees just looking around. I did have to crop it quite a bit. Again taken with the Tamron SP 150-600mm lens that I have on loan from Maxwell International Australia.
There are a couple of other sunrise shots, taken with my phone, one morning earlier this week. I knew there was a very good chance for a sunrise, but well, I slept in and these photos I got around my house.
I spent the whole day regretting I didn’t make more of an effort to get to Banyule Flats. It would have been amazing. We haven’t had another beautiful sunrise since. The skies have been too overcast or not the right conditions.
I’m off on another trip today, I think. It is going to rain, so I don’t know how we will go, but hopefully it will be good enough for it. Going to a park or sanctuary up in the Dandenongs, but you will have to wait and see. I am going with my friend, so it should be lots of fun. I will put all the above photos into a big gallery for you now. I hope you have a good relaxing day.
