A tanker waits On the ocean While the wind blows And the eagles soar
A tanker on the ocean this afternoon. I was trying to create a kind of film-like look in editing it; I used to love shooting with film when I was younger and much as I love digital photography, it often doesn’t have quite the same feel. Fairly happy with how this came out in the end; it’s not the same as film but does reminds me a little of some of the Fuji and Kodak films I used to shoot with. Happy memories.
A beautiful day: Oceans gleam Seagulls call I am lost far away
A tanker on the ocean this afternoon. The water is incredibly clear here and sometimes on a really sunny day, you get this effect where the water almost glistens and changes shades. With the clear blue sky as well, I thought it made for an interesting photo.
A rainbow Hangs over the ocean, Nature’s beauty On full display
This rainbow appeared out of nowhere earlier this afternoon. It had been a bit overcast all day but the clouds weren’t that threatening, so I was quite surprised when the rainbow suddenly appeared over the ocean around 4pm.
It only lasted for about ten minutes but I managed to get a couple of shots before it disappeared. These two were my favourites.
The ocean shimmers Under the light of the moon While the world goes by
I took this photo last night from my grandparents’ balcony. I loved the way the clouds were hanging just above the tankers and how the ocean was reflecting the sky, so I took a quick shot. Came out pretty well.
Dry land Sweltering heat, The perfect fuel For a terrible summer
I took this photo just before Christmas, looking out across a small paddock while visiting my uncle’s family with my parents. They live in a small rural community north of Sydney and many of the surrounding towns and suburbs were surrounded by bushfires in the weeks after Christmas. Thankfully my uncle and his family were reasonably far away from it but it’s not hard to imagine the kind of conditions firefighters were facing, with so much dry bushland fueling the fires. Hopefully temperatures stay lower for the rest of the summer and the fires die out… it really has been hell on earth.
