May Lookout Yarrunga Creek, Kangaroo Valley

Fitzroy Falls thunders over the escarpment.
The past month i have been busy reviewing and organizing my collection of nearby waterfalls into coherent order. To thank you for your support over the past couple of years on G+. The resulting full color book is now available on Amazon, and the e-book will be FREE for a limited 5 day period starting midnight (Pacific Time) 22 February 2018 to midnight (Pacific Time) 26 February.
Details are available on my website at:
http://www.silenttheory.net/2017/07/twilight.html

It is too easy to overlook May Lookout. It is on the east rim of the escarpment which tracks away from the cliff edges into pretty gullies with lyrebirds but few waterfalls. But when the Yarrunga is in flood after mid afternoon, the shots back to Fitzroy can be startling. Warrawong Lookout is even more remote and, perhaps, less inviting. But, after rain, from both lookouts the entire escarpment comes alive with cascades.

A single shot, concentrating on contrast separation of the plunge of water. Forcing a camera to separate out the whites can leave the rest of a picture dim, so i try to use the sun to backlight the falling water where possible (if you have a UV filter on your camera, consider taking it off).
A single shot (taken as part of a HDR set), toned for depth and output sharpened for screens.

Berlinale

Me and +Birka Wiedmaier went to try the flash street photography. What better place than the Berlin International Film Festival at Potsdamer Platz. I was a bit shy, and I am not really enthusiastic about the outcomes and the way to shoot, so I don't think it will be a regular photography discipline for me. However, I like this shot.

Bird Feeders of Ahmedabad

Old city of Ahmedabad holds many surprises for the visitors. Bird Feeder or "Chabutaro" as it is known in local language holds pride of place in Ahmedabad's history. Each area or entrance to each "pol"will have bird feeder. Densely clustered houses didn't leave any space for big trees and hence no trees were left for birds to feed. To provide food to birds , bird feeders were erected in each locality. Mostly carved out of wood they have amazing carvings on their pillars. Some are beautifully painted. Even today they are in use and people in locality feed birds regularly.

This month Ahmedabad will celebrate it's foundation day. I will pay homage to my city by posting one photo everyday till it's birthday on 26th February.

Paddys River Falls
Near the sub-alpine town of Tumbarumba.
Thank you for your support for so long. By way of thanks, i have released a large format book on South Eastern Australian waterfalls, on Amazon. The e-book will be FREE for a limited 5 day period starting midnight (Pacific Time) 22 February 2018 to midnight (Pacific Time) 26 February.
The book can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079VRXB9T
Remember that the free offer is limited to the 5 day period noted above.

I don't take many timelapse photos of waterfalls - the subject matter called for a couple of different approaches, including this one. The shot was taken in light rain, so i have dehazed the picture lightly. The vantage point vibrated slightly from the flow of the falls, and so i have toned for depth and lightly blurred the final picture.

Evening twilight
“For age is opportunity no less
Than youth itself, though in another dress,
And as the evening twilight fades away
The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.”

Waiting for the Milky Way

The new moon was late last week so I thought I would attempt to photographic the galactic core of the Milky Way rising. In February you only get a few minutes before dawn arrives. I left Fort Worth under clear skies but began to pass through fog and low clouds. I arrived at the Nolan River and it was overcast. Undaunted, I waded down the river in the dark to this rock ledge, set up the camera and waited. I saw a few stars appear and made several images- this being my favorite. The Milky Way should be right in the top of the trees when this was made, but the clouds are just thick enough you really cannot tell. Soon after the fog settled in.

All in all a fun morning.

Hello

Red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris)

Svartskog, Norway

One of the many squirrels I enjoy around my home, and this one is on the hunt for immature pine cones – at least to me as they are green and far from opening up. But inside these green cones are the seeds of choice, and every season the squirrels come to shred as many cones per tree as they can. And this tree right in front of my house is being picked clean every year, so it must have really yummy seeds.

And under each pine tree is a huge amount of cone pieces – the annual gift from the squirrels, and a reminder of my childhood and how my bare feet were hurt every summer by these sharps pieces.

Now it is midwinter and very much snow, and I enjoy 5 squirrels eating from my hand-outs every day, yet I dread the cold and snow so much that I’d rather pick a picture from summer than sitting outside in the cold capturing a winter wonderland squirrel….

Oh spring how I long for thee!
