January 2016 Recap

This marks the first in a new series of posts where I take brief look back at my photography over the previous month. It will be a highlights package of some of my favourite images, as well as a place for me to cover any new developments for those interested :)

Updates

February will see me take a two and half month leave from my job to go travelling. First up is a trip to the Blue Mountains to spend some time with my grandparents there, before going on a road trip down Australia's south east coast with my father. Along the way we'll be visiting some great photographic opportunities including: Horse Head Rock, Phillip Island, 12 Apostles and Great Otway National Park.

And then in March and April I'll be travelling to America and Europe with my girlfriend. I haven't been overseas since 2008, so I'm super excited to go adventuring across the world again. Looking forward to sharing the full itinerary next month!

Highlights

  We were on a family drive through the Jamberoo countryside when I saw a  trio of Rainbow Lorikeets perched high up in the gum tree, feeding on the flowers. The overcast weather brought out the bold colours of the bird and flowers against the deep green back drop. I was glad to have my 250mm lens on hand which allowed to get in close, and draw attention to the lorikeet's magnificent plumage.

 Taken just before sunset, the soft evening light from the right hand side of this image illuminated Ivy in a gentle glow, contrasting against the the rough, urban warehouse setting of Carriageworks, Redfern.

 On the evening of my birthday earlier this month we ventured out to Mrs Macquarrie's Point to watch the summer sunset which bathed the harbour beautifully in a soft pink light.

 This long exposure of the iconic Sydney skyline was taken from the north side of the harbour, from Kirribilli. While Jeffry St Wharf on the bank of Milson's Point offers the busload's of tourists postcard-perfect views of the city, try venturing east along Kirribilli Avenue, before turning down Beulah St to each Beulah St Wharf which offers (in my opinion) a better view of the city that's far less crowded.
