Day 356/365: Silky Lattice

Another rainy summer evening! I went for a walk out in the garden and found this web, and although the shot is far from technically great, I still like it.

Day 348/365: A Little Gem From Our Little Gem

There’s just something about the soft whiteness of a magnolia bud. It oozes purity to me, although the perfect creamy whiteness doesn’t usually last more than a day once the bud opens up. This bud is from the Magnolia little gem in our front garden.

Little Gem: Nikon D7000; f6.3; 1/640; ISO 800

Day 293/365: Lime Fountain

On my way back to my room late one night, I walked past one of the many water features in Darling Harbour and it was all lit up. The colours changed with time and they looked great. I captured this with John’s little point & shoot, so a pretty good result, considering. I hope the kids on school camp get to see some of this stuff!

Lime Fountain: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH1; f5.7; 1/100; ISO 400

Day 209/365: Sparkling

One more image from my rainy day in the garden. The droplets were too spectacular to only do one pic!

Sparkling: Nikon D7000; f29; 1/60; On board flash fired; ISO 100

Day 208/365: Droplets or Diamonds?

I went for a little walk around the yard last weekend after yet more rain! I needed to do some shooting and to be honest I wasn’t “seeing” much to get me enthused. Then I spotted my agave which gets no attention, its leaves covered in water droplets. The sun had peeked through the clouds making them sparkle like diamonds, and I had to capture it!


Diamonds in the Rain: Nikon D7000; f5.3; 1/320; ISO 100

Day 8/365

After the rain finally stopped falling yesterday, I took the opportunity to take a look around in the garden and shoot some images. The Eucalypt blossoms are just starting to burst, the bottlebrushes are in flower, and the raindrops were still hanging onto the leaves.
