109/365 Fire in the water


With interest in yesterdays post, todays post 109, is just the reflection in the water from the willow tree. Its amazing what sort of textures and patterns you can get in the water from here. I always stop by this particular location to see what is available in the autumn.

108/365 Mallard under willow tree


I’ve been editing some images recently and came across this one I took last autumn.  I really like this image as its so rich in textures and colours. Its of a drake Mallard and is very chilled out sitting underneath this over hanging Willow tree.

041/365 Kota Kinabalu Sunset


Image 041 is a ‘regular’ sunset from Kota Kinabalu.  Due to Mt Kinabalu dominating the weather systems in Borneo, there is always a lot of cloud about during sun set.  This makes for great images every night of the week. Heres another one of my favourites.

One for yesterday… 😉

Looking through my images to see what to post next,  I found this one which I completely forgot about taking.  Utilising a slow shutter speed and panning movement, I captured a variety of images using different shutter speeds.  I’ve done this in the past with wide angle lenses such as the 17-40mm or 24-70mm but this one was taken with my 500mm!  It shows you can do landscape photogrpahy with a supertelephoto! This is one of my favourites and has a very soothing quality about it.  Maybe its the smoothness of the scene or just the pastel like colours. I hope you like it as much as I do.
