Jeez time to play some more catch up on the blog.
Once again I’ve let the blog languish without updates for way too long (over two months!) So here are some of the photo highlights to get all caught up.
There that takes care of the month of May. I’ll put together a couple more updates for June and July.
Here are some more photos from the last week.
This is the beach at the end of the Anton Larsen trail. Tessa and I made the hike and were pretty tired by this point. The whole trail has matting down on it so it is fairly easy to hike but Tessa didn’t like the matting.
I made a trip up to the top of Pillar Mountain for sunset last week. This was an attempt to get the wind farm in motion while I was taking pictures. I used my neutral density filter and did a multiple exposure HDR merge to get this result.
Yesterday I took Tessa and the camera out to Mayflower Beach. Tessa ran around the beach like a crazy dog and I had to keep my eye out for the eagles circling. Luckily she let me know about them by barking at them.
Here are the photos I kept from them and hopefully a little story behind how I got them.
When we first got to the beach it was raining a little bit. As I got down there and turned around looking back towards the parking lot there was a pretty nice rainbow. I set up and took this photo and after processing I noticed that there was a really faint second rainbow above the more noticeable one.
The small path out to the beach was pretty flooded with a puddle at least 1.5 to 2 feet deep. I had to carry Tessa through it. As I was leaving I was feeling abit adventurous and set up my tripod in the puddle to take a couple of photos.
Some more photos from recent walks with Tessa.
Yesterday after work Tessa and I went for a walk around Fort Abercrombie again. I brought the Sony A6000 for some photos figuring I haven’t given it much use since I got my Nikon DSLR. To be honest in the few times I had used it previously I wasn’t too impressed with the results I had gotten from it but after putting in some time and effort into the processing yesterday I think it isn’t too bad.
