From my backyard to be specific. For you in the USA and Europe, this is what your moon will look like, since I'm in the future! :)
This was taken on a Nikon D800E, 500mm lens with 1.4X teleconverter (so, 700mm equivalent), 1/250s, f6.3, ISO400.
It's been a while since I've posted any images, so here's one from last Friday evening at a place called Burns Beach. I was trying out some new ND filters for the first time, and I think I'll have a lot of fun learning how to best use them.
I went for a drive to a place called Meckering yesterday (which you can find here if you're so inclined: http://goo.gl/maps/JXbT0), and found that the farmers were clearing the stubble in their paddocks by setting it all on fire. These are from the 'before' to the 'after' of the process.
I'm increasingly taking shots of community runs and cross-country athletics, and so it would be great if I could use some software to read a barcode on the race bib to automatically capture the runner's number.
Is anyone using software like that, and would you recommend it. Google doesn't turn...
We had a round of the national athletics championships a couple of weeks ago, and I was lucky enough to score an all-areas accreditation.
This is James Magut, who won the mile event in 3:53.74. That's the track record.
This is Melissa Breen, who set a new national record a few weeks ago...
My original intention was to catch up with a few people and take some night sky shots in a national park near the city, but the weather gods sent cloud to put an end to that idea.
So, we headed down to the city, and took some shots from a place called Kings Park and surrounds.
This is flowering tonight, and has five blooms - which is pretty good. The flowers only come out for one night, and have a wonderful perfume that's apparently intended to attract bats. Luckily, we don't have any around here. It's a pity that it was so windy tonight!
