S P R I N G Days

It's that time of year again... Spring. My favourite season!

As the days become warmer, the blossom trees begin to bloom.

Blue-banded bees buzz happily around the garden.

And the sunsets last a little longer.

Vantage Point Project: Brisbane City Lights

I was recently made aware of a revolutionary new compact camera, the Light L16 Camera, which "uses multiple lens systems to shoot photos at the same time, then computationally fuses them into a DSLR-quality image".
I must admit, I am intrigued by this idea and would love to get my hands on one to try it out and see how it performs.

When I heard about's #VantagePoint project, I immediately knew I wanted to participate, and share a favourite DSLR shot of my own with the story & settings behind the shot.

While I could have shared many images from my recent 2015 trip to Alaska, which I have previously blogged about, I decided to share an image from my home city as it encapsulates my absolute love of capturing the light and reflections of blue hour.

Living in Brisbane, also known as the "River City", we are spoiled with so many beautiful views of the city reflected on the Brisbane River which snakes around two sides of the CBD.
This particular vantage point (in the shot below) is one of my favourite spots for shooting long exposure shots of our city at night. I love the light & colours of the city skyline reflected off the water.

Camera Settings:

Aperture: f/11
ISO 100,
Exposure: 89 sec
Focal length: 17mm

Cape Schanck, Mornington Peninsula, VIC

Cape Schanck is a locality in the Australian state of Victoria. It is the southernmost tip of the Mornington Peninsula and separates the wild ocean waters of Bass Strait from the slightly calmer waters of Western Port. The most recognisable symbol of Cape Schanck is the Cape Schanck Lighthouse. The lighthouse was built in 1859 and was the second lighthouse built in Victoria.

From the lighthouse car park are a network of scenic walks. A short loop offers views of the lighthouse and coastline from several designated lookouts.

Follow the walking track from the kiosk towards the Cape. This short circuit walk takes visitors to the start of the wooden staircase and boardwalk which descends from the cliff tops to the rocky beach and rock platform below.

Several lookouts have spectacular views over the geological formations called Pulpit Rock and the Devils Desk.

A prominent rock outcrop is Pulpit Rock and stands out at the very tip of the cape.

Incoming Tide at Beachmere, QLD

The small town of Beachmere, is located in the Moreton Bay Region of Queensland, Australia. It is located north of Brisbane and has a population of 3,888.

After spending the afternoon bird watching in the area, we decided to stay for sunset. We had been warned not to stay on the sand flats for too long as the incoming tide rises incredibly fast... they weren't wrong!!

The water rose to knee height in a matter of 10-15 minutes!

Never-the-less, the sunset was worth getting our feet wet for!
