FILM: Kodak Ektar August 2016

Posted by on Jul 18, 2017 | No Comments

Another film installment, this time some Kodak Ektar from August 2016. Most of these images were taken up the coast from Sydney, on a trip away as a reward for submitting my PhD thesis. This road trip took us up past Newcastle to Smith’s Lake and Forster and then on the way back we stopped past Nelson Bay and Port Stephens.

The Fujifilm Natura Classica did the heavy lifting for this roll, it is a delightful little camera; small, light with reasonably good focus speed and exposure accuracy.

Its already June, and I only just realised I have not posted my April review. Life is pretty busy at the moment, so I am going to show some images, the usual story. As always these are from my 365Project and include extra images taken in the process. Click through for larger and more.

Autumn Colours, April 2017

Posted by on May 12, 2017 | No Comments

With the Easter and ANZAC day holidays coming very close together this year I was able to get away a few times to hunt some of the Autumn colours in the Blue Mountains and the Southern Highlands. This year it felt as if the colours were late, but the timing worked out well for me. Here are some images from three expeditions.

First up was a trip on a sunny day out to Artemis Winery in the Southern Highlands. A lazy lunch among the red and yellow vines followed by a spectacular sunset sky.

The next day I was up in the Blue Mountains with some family, once again a trip chasing colour, and another day on the road. Not as much colour at Wentworth Falls, but further up at Blackheath we were treated to lots of reds and oranges.

Finally, on ANZAC day we had a late start and a long day, this time the target was Mount Wilson, stopping along the way to visit the Hargrave Lookout and taking the car off the tarmac and onto the gravel.

Long Jetty Sunset

Posted by on May 2, 2017 | No Comments

Just thought I would share some images from a trip up to the Central Coast. It was very much a get in the car and drive sort of day without any real plan and any real photographic reward until right at the end of the day when we were treated to a sunset at Long Jetty. The Nikon D700 did the heavy lifting, and there should be some film from my Hasselblad 503CX coming eventually.

Lots of varied weather so there are a few sky shots.

Posted by on Mar 17, 2017 | No Comments

The lack of time I have had over the last few months have really shown. I have been taking photos but I have not really had time to share. Here are the two sets I have from January 2017.

First up there was a trip into the Blue Mountains

Then there was another trip up to the Southern Highlands for a lazy lunch at Artemis Winery. They have great pizza and friendly dogs to keep you company.
