An incredibly still water fall that I came across in Kakadu National Park. The Northern Territory has landscapes like no where else I've been!

Worth A Flat Tyre?

Frostastdavatn, Landmannalaugar, Iceland. 
(With apologies for the Australianized spelling - it's as close as I can get)

Phase One 645DF & IQ180 with 110mm Schneider Kreuznach lens.
30 seconds @ f5.6, ISO 35

This photograph has a special memory for me.

As is often the case in Iceland, it was blowing a small gale up on the ridge, just above where this photo was taken, but by walking down a few metres, I was able to set up my tripod in relatively calm conditions. The area is called Landmannalaugar (incorrectly spelt in my previous correspondence) and it is understandably a favourite area with landscape photographers. And the name of this lake is also incorrectly spelt in the caption above because when I use the special Icelandic characters, they display differently on Macs, PCs and goodness knows what else.

But this isn't the memory.

Bradleys Light

Bradley’s Head, Mosman, Sydney, NSW, Australia
NIKON D750 + 24.0-70.0 mm f/2.8 @ 32 mm, 134 sec at f/14, ISO 100

http://www.rc.au.net/blog/2016/01/30/navigating-bradleys/

Six months ago…. :)… after a bit of a last minute discussion about potential locations for a Sunday sunrise shoot we opted for a quick trip to Bradley’s Head to shoot the Navigating Lighthouse there.

Our deliberations for a shooting location roamed far and wide from jetty’s and piers way down south to way up north, to seascape locations along the coast.

In the end we (+Deb Mooney, +Gerard Blacklock and I) opted for convenience (somewhere very close by :)) and hoped for the best :).

Bradley’s Head is a headland protruding from the north shore of Sydney Harbour in the suburb of Mosman and is quite close to Taronga Zoo.

I’ve shot here on a number of occasions at sunset and it’s a quite popular spot for that because the sun sets behind the city and Harbour bridge to the south west and you have a great view across the water of the harbour.

I’d never shot at this location at sunrise and it was this navigating lighthouse that I wanted to include in my shots here this time.

There’s actually a good reason why this location isn’t a popular sunrise location… The area has a reasonably long promitory of land sticking out into the harbour and theres a single road which leads out and down to the end. There are gates up at the top of that road which are usually locked at at night and reopened in the morning.

This means that you don’t want to be shooting a late sunset at certain times of the year lest you get locked in and likewise we didn’t expect to be able to get in in the morning and planned to park outside and walk in (about 20-30mins).

The location gods smiled on us today – the gates were open and we could drive right down. However this mean we were on location much earlier than we were expecting so it was very very dark :)

Still after a recce of the area and messing about with the parking machine which gratefully accepted our credit card donations but didn’t actually print us any tickets! :) we all headed off and looked for our first compositions.

The three of us actually headed off in different directions this morning which is pretty unusual. As the clouds decided not to appear making us almost wish we were back in bed instead :), Gerry looked to shoot towards the city from the stone pier, Deb went in search of the details and I headed around the point to the lighthouse I wanted to shoot.

This shot is actually the first frame of the morning taken at 6:27AM and still 30 minutes till sunrise. No test exposures here I winged the 134 second exposure on the fly and either skillfully interpreted the ambient light and the rough exposure required OR got lucky and the exposure was just about spot on – you pick :)

Milky Ribbon

Mount Burr, South Australia, Australia
NIKON D750 + 14.0 mm f/2.8 @ 14 mm, 30 sec at f/2.8, ISO 6400 x 5 Frames

http://www.rc.au.net/blog/2016/02/01/milky-ribbon/

I’d just finished my sequence of frames for a star trails sitting over this windmill. As if it wasn’t late enough already (12:30AM) didn’t want to waste these dark skies and I wanted to try again to get a decent static milky way ribbon streaking through the sky above the windmill.

At this time of the year the milky way runs approximately north south and at this time of the night it is quite high in the sky running almost vertically overhead. Unfortunately the core of the milky way is also over the southern horizon so we don’t get to see that massive galactic cluster. Still the ribbon of the milky way in the dark night sky would have to do :).

I’d also mentioned before that the light pollution from Mount Gambier about 50km away was still quite strong on the horizon.

In the end I opted to face directly at the light pollution on the horizon but cover most of it with the water tank at the base of the windmill. I’d figured this would give a nice rim light to my tank and windmill whilst hiding the worst of the glow and give me a half decent angle on the windmill and stars.

Because the angle of the stars is quite steep I decided to go with a vertical panorama. This consisted of five (5) vertical frames taken at 14mm. This covered from almost at my feet in front of the tripod to a little behind me looking straight up.

The start of collection number 3 "Far Away Places". This gallery will contain images from outside of Australia, hence the title.

This was taken at Dubai, April 2014.

I ran long and hard, over dune after dune, to escape the crowd to capture this scene without any footprints. The sun was setting fast so I had to find a fitting location quickly. Luckily after the third or fourth dune crossing I stumbled upon this. I dropped to my knees, planted the tripod with camera already mounted and composed this. Within a minute, the sun was gone.
