Day 362/365: Monkey Boy

This is my little boy doing what he loves the most – climbing! Good times 🙂

Day 332/365: Marching Ant

I noticed these ants heading up a tree this afternoon and thought they could be OK to shoot, but instead of freezing them in action I wanted to capture their movement. So I have panned with the ant. I am pretty happy with this result, out of all my shots(heaps of them!), with the body fairly focussed but the extremities still showing movement. I think the different coloured bark adds interest too.

Day 325/365: A Curly Situation

It was raining when I got home tonight and I needed to shoot something, so I got the tripod out and set up near the tree fern under our back verandah. I wanted to shoot one of the new curled up fronds. I finally focussed on it after getting a torch to lighten it up, then did a nice long exposure. I am really happy with the result.

Day 313/365: Barking Up the Wrong Tree

The afternoon sun was so gorgeous in the backyard this afternoon, I had to find something to shoot in it. If you follow my blog, you will already know how much I love good texture!

Day 265/365: New Beginnings

While I was out waiting for the sun to go behind the clouds the other morning, I spotted this gorgeous little new shoot on one of our macadamia trees. I love the contrast between the old wood and the new. I had to snap it, but oh, what I wouldn’t do to have a macro lens at times!!

New Beginnings: Nikon D7000; f5.3; 1/50; ISO 400

Day 222/365: Patonga Creek Sunset

It was a mad dash over to the creek on the Saturday night we were camping to capture this magnificent sunset. I have to thank John for pointing it out to me, as I had my back to it. The gorgeous colour only lasted about 5 minutes and it was gone! There will be a couple more of this. Just breathtaking…

Patonga Creek Sunset: Nikon D7000; f4; 1/60; ISO 400

Day 220/365: A Different Perspective

I admit I take a lot of photos of my little Ethan in trees. What can I say? It’s what he does, he’s a climber. Our little monkey. I am honestly surprised we haven’t had any trips to the hospital for broken bones! Anyway, this one is from a different perspective and I think the shot from down low works pretty well!

Monkey Boy: Nikon D7000; f4; 1/800; ISO 100

Day 216/365: Perfect View

Walking back to camp with the sun shining I came across these two chairs, obviously placed for the perfect view when sitting there! I can just imagine sitting there with a nice cold drink on a summer afternoon watching the world go by….

Perfect View: Nikon D7000; f11; 1/125; ISO 200

Day 207/365: Buggy Curiosity

In the trees at the camping ground, the boys found lots of these wonderfully coloured bugs. This was just little boy heaven! We were pretty sure they were some kind of stink bug, so were a little wary. However it didn’t stop the boys seeking them out, counting them & watching them. I love the look of curiosity & fascination in Kyle’s eyes. I couldn’t resist putting two images up!

Fascination: Nikon D7000; f10; 1/60; ISO 100; on board Flash fired

Day 193/365: Kyle

Kyle honestly rarely stops laughing. Although it can be annoying at times, like when I’m trying to rouse on him and it fires me up even more, I think it is generally a good trait in him. He is a happy little boy. Here he is laughing at Ethy who is up in the tree.
