Slightly different view of Rocky Cape – although it was taken at the same location as yesterday’s post, just maybe ten minutes earlier… amazing what a large difference a little time can make!
365 Project: Day 59
Day 59… it’s a special day (some people will know why…), so a shot from a special place… Rocky Cape NP. You’ve seen this a few times before, most notably Day 34. I took this shot just after talking to Sharon when she was getting on the plane in Germany to come home. I felt happy.
[There’s something that I quite like about this shot… I think it’s the ‘under the water, over the water’ feel that it has? Or is that just me? Anyway, taken with the OM-D, and the little Panasonic 14mm pancake lens. Now I’m off to enjoy the rest of this special day with my lovely wife!!]
365 Project: Day 34
Day 34. A rubbish day for everything except taking this photo it seems…
[OM-D. 45mm f/1.8. Rocky Cape NP. This is actually almost exactly the same spot as on Day 27, but the tide was much further in this afternoon! Just before I took this shot, I was gazing wistfully – or at least what I imagine that would involve – out to the end of the jetty, and to Table Cape in the distance, keeping an eye open for whales, when suddenly two shiny black heads emerged! Two divers, who had underwater cameras with all the trimmings. Turns out they were great guys – and had some truly impressive footage of a large cuttlefish getting scared and changing colours and swimming away – nice work! Not sure what that really has to do with this photo, but just try to imagine that scene unfolding against the gentle repetition of the waves over the jetty, as the tide reached its furthest point, changed its mind, and began to recede.]
365 Project: Day 32
Day 32. Another waterscape, but slightly different approach this time…
[OM-D. Panasonic 14mm f/2.5. This was also at Rocky Cape NP, and I was really struck by the contrast between the brightness of the orange rocks, and the deep greens and blues of the water. A long exposure helps to emphasise that contrast, and also the different textures. At least, that’s how it seems to me. I think this is one of my favourites so far… not quite Day 22, but I like it. 🙂 ]
365 Project: Day 27
Day 27. A good day 🙂
[OM-D. 14mm f/2.5. Gentle breeze. Random fisherman. I was there first; he took up this spot without being asked to. Rocky Cape NP. Either I was a little early, or the tide was a little late for the shot I was after. Still, this one came along instead. Gotta love this flexibility business. Oh, and his head is blurry because this was a long exposure, and he moved a bit while the shutter was open. I’m frankly amazed that he moved so little!]
365 Project: Day 6
Day 6! Already! I was even lucky enough to have some sunshine this afternoon – hence this image.
[Rocky Cape National Park… although the sun was out, it was amazingly windy so close to the water… looking up, I was impressed by this guy hanging on… Still using the Lensbaby… in fact, I’ve taken all except prime lenses out of my camera bag now, which means no wide angle lens. So I’m pushing myself to see things differently – it means finding a point of focus, a detail, whereas I’m used to trying to take in a whole scene. I’m enjoying the challenge so far.]
