    It was a very long gloomy grey cloudy day and I took a 10 minute break here when suddenly a little slit in the sky started opening up to reveal a bit of light. So quickly took the shot before it closed back up again

    A gorgeous day exploring the castle and back to one of our favourite spots. I brought 3 cameras and a selection of lenses - (met a member of Bpic too), but the best shots from that weekend were captured on my phone - it's true what they say - the best is the one you have on you! Watching the rowers coming in, the clouds parted for the sunset and snapped this on my phone. Tho it does gave quite a camera! Sony Xperia 1 V.

    When going for a walk I usually keep a camera close by. I saw the abandoned boat laying on the beach. The sky was intriguing. I took photos from several angles. Initially not wanting to use this angle as the boat has allot of graffiti on it. Post processing... Took out the graffiti in Photoshop. Changed to monochrome with a very slight blue tint to create a mood. Used a couple of masks to change the contrast of the boat.Camera settings.Camera OM1Lens Olympus 7-14mm (shot at 10mm)Mid da

    Was a day for staying in as it was blowing a gale but we headed out anyway. The waves were ferocious and were pushing the water right up to the wall so I thought it definitely suits a long exposure as the water on the way back was class. I don?t do many black and white images but this conveyed the mood of the weather to a tee.

    I captured this house sparrow coming in for a landing on my bird feeder one rainy afternoon using my Nikon D7500 and a Sigma 100-400mm lens. The settings were 1/1250 f/6.3 Auto ISO.

    This was my first attempt at astrophotography in Brisbane and was a trial shot more than anything. I went looking for an eastern facing foreground knowing that the Milky Way core would be rising at around 10pm from the east, leaving me few options where light pollution wouldn't be an issue. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't too harsh at vic point. I loved the foreground and the lightning in the distance on the horizon, and the satellite creaping in was another unexpected surprise with th

    This photo was taken a few years ago. I waited a long time for the right light and atmosphere. I was already cold when this picture appeared. I was very happy that my efforts were so generously rewarded.

    Dearing the eclipse of 2017 my family and I sat in our backyard here in WA to watch the 93 totality with our eclipse glasses. With my homemade solar filter attached to my camera, I took a series of photos of the sun during the eclipse. After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form. I am an avid shooter of Astro photography and have several photos of the moon taken from my backyard and multiple other locations. I
