Yeah I've used them a couple of times in the last decade, they're definitely reliable.

got a visiting uncle from overseas, took him to Buddina up Sunshine Coast to see sunrise (almost didn't make it in time, wasn't anticipating all the road works) before going hiking up Mt Ngungun

Back there again. Gotta head out there with you sometime.

 

Should try some slow shutter work with those clouds?

lol you ass

 

you know what really sucks, first time i went up i brought my heavy ass 70-200 with me hoping to get some birds, i hear them alright but they were so far up i couldn't even see them, but saw butterflies and these horseflies i want to shoot but didn't have my macro gear, so this time i bring my macro gear (flash and all) and not my 70-200 and i see a couple birds that i've never seen before and ones i suspect don't let you get close fly close enough to me where if i had my 70-200 i would've gotten decent shot of them, but didn't see any of the bugs i saw last time i was at the summit, fml

Haha. Serves you right for having really good but heavy gear.

 

Could have used your uncle as a sherpa though.

 

You said 8 Kilos. I would have thought your camera, wide angle, zoom and macro would have come in at that. I was just shy of 8 kilos onboard for the trip to Iceland with 16-35, 70-200, 24-105 & 50mm.

first time out at this location after reading about the sunflower plantation, absolutely beautiful place in the country side

struggled quite a bit trying to get decent composition due to the way the flowers were planted vs where the nicest part of sky/sun is setting today, and that the flowers were tall, like almost my height haha, winds + slow shutter didn't make it any easier, the 300km return drive was worth it though, beautiful place

I like it but there is something very bizarre and disconcerting about this shot. I quite like the seascape one from the 16th though.

thanks man! yea i think it's due to the composition itself, if you look carefully enough you can probably tell the "line" in which the flowers were planted, i tried to hide it as much as i can with composition but there was only so much i could do, if only i could move the sky lol...

happy new year everyone! mother nature was kind to me, stopped the thunderstorm and gave me this sunrise this morning (though would've been pretty cool to capture the crazy lightning that was going off as well lol)

hey thanks man! had to get real close too for them demsel/dragonflies, like lens was cm's away lol

 

with the waves, long exposure on a tripod, for something like that couple seconds shutter speed is generally enough, took that same shot over and over many times tho to get the timing right/kind of wave i wanted

 

but yea that shot pretty much came out of camera like that, i just do minor raw editing/touchups after that
