Melbourne Street Photography – Laneway Cafes – CBD

Melbourne is the food capital of Australia without a doubt, which makes for some cool street photography and a full stomach. The City of Melbourne crams in as many restaurants and cafes as will allow. Everywhere you turn someone has stuffed a cafe or stand somewhere....

Smooth Sunrise, Waves in Motion

Up at the crack of dawn and down for a pre-breakfast wander for some sunset photos down the beach. I took the D810 with a long lens (70-200 f2.8) and decides to back the shutter speed off to 1/4 sec in an effort to capture the movement of the ocean. When you pull the...

Bearded Dragon on a Log

Can you name this Lizard for us? We know it's a dragon and we think it's a bearded dragon but need an expert to confirm for our records.

St Kilda Pier Photography – Port Phillip Bay Melbourne Australia

Off we went to St Kilda Pier to see the Port Phillip Bay Penguins, take some photos of the Pavilion and Melbourne skyline.  Winter in Melbourne probably wasn't the ideal time of year to be wandering out on St Kilda Pier just to see some penguins but hey we were here...

Big Surf at The Alley Cronulla

Big waves rolling at Cronulla in Sydney, off shore winds blowing out some big rooster tails. The photo was taken at The Alley looking back to Cronulla Beach (South Cronulla).

The Blue Tiger Butterfly from Queensland Sunshine Coast

Just getting around Queensland and dropped into Noosa Heads for a bit of a swim and wander around. Of course, we brought the camera and took a few snaps, including a photo of this Blue Tiger Butterfly sitting on a leaf. I don't know if they're here in plague...
