  • Springtime - better weather, good before-brekky light and a morning walk

    G'day all

    I've come out of my coccoon, thrown off the winter's hibernation and taken the camera for a morning walk. It got quite a fright ... there's a world out there
    Here's some images for you to enjoy

    1- A pod of dolphins feeding on a shoal of small fish not far from the shoreline

    exif- Panny G2 w- 14-140 lens at 140 [280 equiv]; 1/800s x F7; ISO-100

    2- Dunes & grasses

    exif- Panny G2 w- 14-140 lens at 38 [75 equiv]; 1/500s x F8; ISO-100

    3- Some sea mist still lingering

    exif- Panny G2 w- 14-140 lens at 40 [80 equiv]; 1/640s x F10; ISO-100

    4- Ah- the delights of a walk along a beach of golden-white sand

    exif- Panny G2 w- 14-140 lens at 45 [90 equiv]; 1/320s x F7; ISO-100 EV+1

    Hope you enjoy a glimpse of my local beach in springtime - I like the before brekky walks for their light & shadow details, the colours and the peacefulness of it all
    As always, feedback welcome
    Phil

    Beaut scenery Phil, you know I have a soft spot for the seaside. (Couldn’t you sleep) 😉
    It's the little things!

    Cheers, Greg C.

        Captured a lovely morning.
        Better a full bottle in front of me
        than a full frontal lobotomy.

          Nice to see how the other half live Phil. Lovely images to wake up to. I'm only saying this because it's in PITP. The horizon in #3 is down on the right. Only slight but to me is more noticeable because of the angle of the two waves and where the water meets the sand. I hope you don't mind the nit pic, as I know lots of togs don't seem to mind if the horizon is a bit off, but to me it's essential.

          Why do they put expiry dates on cartons of sour cream?

            Thx Greg - I try to do a 1-hr before brekky walk most days and often take the camera too. Trouble is that pics & targetted exercise walking don't mix

            Yeah Hans - we've had plenty of pleasant mornings lately - tho winter did give us a few cold / rainy / unpleasant days

            Hi Kathy ... Forster - Tuncurry between Newcastle & Port Macquarie. A beaut place to live & play and with lots of photographic opportunities for one [unlike me] who takes camera out occasionally !!

            Here's another one of the local dolphins surfing the outgoing tide at the Wallis Lake breakwater

            Ah - Isac me ole mate - yes you are quite correct in your PITP award for the sloping horizon. I should have seen it before posting, but like too many other times, I was looking at the atmospherics etc. Thanks for the feedback

            Thanks everyone
            Phil

              The surfing dolphins photo is really cool Phil. I don't get to see that so I reckon you're pretty lucky to be able to capture shots like that. Definitely worth framing!
