    Well, a couple of them, anyway. :)

    Tonight's moon in Western Australia

    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.

    Subliminal messages...

    Not very subtle, though.

    This bee has been busy

    Looks like it's been a successful trip. This is actually a shot from 2012 that I re-processed with updated software, as I do from time to time. :)

    Well, it has here in Perth. I'm looking forward to the warm summer evenings at the track. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

    The Breakwater Tavern

    Not to be confused with the Breakwind Tavern, which is where I usually hang out... I was bored, and had nothing to do last night, so I thought I'd wander down to the local marina.

    Noble Falls

    It was a public holiday here today, and I managed to talk my son into being my assistant on a trip to Noble Falls - mainly to keep learning how to use my ND filters. I was pretty happy with this one.

    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.

    Clearing the stubble

    I went for a drive to a place called Meckering yesterday (which you can find here if you're so inclined:, 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.

    Barcode recognition software?

    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...

    The winners

    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...

    Perth, Western Australia

    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.

    Wouldn't it be nice? :)

    Blue moon

    This was the moon this morning, about to set after a hard night of glowing. :)

    Epiphylum Oxypetalum

    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!
