The time when the sun rises and sets have to be the most appealing time to photograph. The light being so low at both dawn and dusk makes everything looks a bit more dramatic. Being NOT a morning person in a major way, I don’t get to see a lot of sun rises. On the rare occasion that I did wake up early enough I was always so amazed at how beautiful everything was in the morning, and always promised myself that I […]
Today was the last day of school holiday in Canberra. It’s a typical Sunday in the suburb. We drove around a nearby suburb looking for a fast food restaurant for a quick take-away. Too tired to cook, and couldn’t be bothered with more nutritious choice. Good thing I bothered to look up to see this sunset sky, otherwise we will suffer another book cover pattern shot.
I had a lot of fun taking photos for today’s post, even though it started late. Late afternoon. It seemed that I only needed to look up and snapped away, because that’s where the ‘action’ was today. I took this one on our way back home, even before I knew how pretty the color of the sky around my house was. I wanted to see whether I could manage to capture the sunset behind me along with its lovely hues. The […]
A mad dash just before dinner brought me to this corner. My kids were playing outside as the sun was about to set that’s how I noticed the beautiful color in the sky. Well, only a glimpse of it, because the houses across the street were completely blocking the view. So I grabbed the car keys and driving westward just to find a bit of field/empty space so I could see my orange clouds properly. One suburb down they I […]
Light is everything in photography. And it usually doesn’t take long for a newbie like me to ‘get’ the magic of golden hour. It’s that moment before the sun completely set, when the sun is just hanging low pouring the ground with the most beautiful light. Giving photographers the perfect light to play, have fun and be more creative. To have the sun finally out from behind the clouds this late afternoon was such a bonus. Because this morning looked […]
I have been living in Canberra for over 5 years, but this was the first sunset shot I’ve ever taken here, and I’m still not quite sure why I haven’t done it before. We were on our way home, taking a different route through the Coppins Crossing Rd from Belconnen. We took the first little turn off left, parked, and this view was just right in front of us. This kind of beauty so close to home I have to […]
It’s a love and hate thing. 20% love vs 80% hate. Yes, I’m talking about spiderwebs. I hate that they are everywhere; inside, outside, on the ceiling, at the gates, between the roses branches, EVERYWHERE. If I clean them (very rare occasion) I would see them again in two days at the same spot. Hardworking little buggers these spiders are. Making mess everywhere, I hate that. And spiders too. I hate them. However, I love that these spiders trapped bugs […]
