After 7 months of living on the Gold Coast I’ve once again made the move across the country back to Perth. This is from my first shoot over this side of the country with the Canon 5D MkII. On a calm evening like this one you will get some great reflections of the city lights looking across the Swan River to the Perth City skyline from the Sir James Mitchell Park in South Perth.
After trekking through the Brindle Creek rain forest track for a couple of hours taking photographs of the creeks and trees, Emily and I moved further around the mountain to the Pinnacle Lookout.
The Pinnacle Lookout is located in the Border Ranges National Park in Northern New South Wales and is only a short walk from the main road that loops around the mountain. On this particular day I was pretty lucky with the cloud formations.
Shortly after taking this photo we crashed Emily’s car into a tree and wrote it off. Luckily neither of us were injured too badly.
I was going through some more of the images from the Border Ranges trip and came across this composition. The rain forest in the Border Ranges National Park is out of this world – it seems as if nobody has ever been there before you.
Brindle Creek in the Border Ranges National Park is one of the most impressive rain forest streams in Australia according to wikipedia. Emily and I spent a couple of hours walking through the rain forest, battling the leeches and other creepy crawlies that call this spot home. I had to balance precariously on one of the boulders in the middle of the stream for this composition, but it was well worth it in the end, I feel.
I have had limited internet connection for the last week, and won’t have it back until next week. We’re in the process of moving, so times are quite busy. Thanks to everyone who continues to read this blog, and I will get back to reading all of yours as soon as possible!
The sky was overcast so I thought heading out into the hinterland for some waterfall photos would be a good idea. I packed all my gear quickly and jumped in the car. Initially I was heading out to shoot Twin Falls in Springbrook National Park, but I never made it that far. I found a cool little creek along the way where this photo was taken. I spent an hour or so here walking around, looking for different angles, and waiting for the light to fade.
The next stop was at Natural Bridge where my camera battery ran out after only a couple hours of shooting. The 5D MkII batteries don’t seem to last very long with live view on. I guess I better buy myself a spare or two.
