Through my Lens

  • Mount Doreen Station Ruins

    As it turned out, this was our last bush camp on this trip. Located just off the Tanami Track in the Northern Territory, the Mt Doreen station ruins provides visitors with an interesting place to explore and even bush camp. The station was named after Doreen Braitling, wife of Bill Braitling who ran the station in the 1920s. The homestead was abandoned due to poor water supply. Bill died in 1959. Doreen moved to Alice Springs and built a name for herself being active in the National Trust. Doreen Braitling died in 1979. Made from 6 light frames (captured with a NIKON camera) by Starry Landscape Stacker 1.6.2.

  • Grass Tree

  • Lunar Eclipse

    This is a composite photo that I made with the Grampians in the foreground and the progression of the eclipse. It was quite cloudy so I had to work around that as well.

  • Sunrise over Ararat

    A photo of the sunrise over Ararat, as the moon sets in the west after the lunar eclipse.

  • Moon, Mars and Stars

    We had lots of cloud arouns last night, but this is pretty much what it looked like at one stage. This is a combination of two photos, one for the stars and one for the moon.

  • Mars and the Lunar Eclipse

    A photo of this mornings eclipse with a very bright Mars

  • The Wave

    My impression of a wave breaking, catching the light

  • Eastern Rosella

    The plumage of the Eastern Rosella is especially vividly coloured — red and yellow and blue and green and black. Despite this bold coloration, when rosellas are feeding on the ground among the grass or perched among the foliage in the treetops they can be very difficult to see, often seeming to disappear completely into the background. Despite their bright colours, their plumage is patterned so that it creates an extremely effective camouflage which assists the birds in avoiding detection by potential predators.

  • Pink Lake Panorama

    A few kilometers west of Dimboola, next to the Western Highway, you can find Pink Lake. The pink colour of the water comes from a pigment secreted by microscopic algae. This is a panorama created from five sets of HDR photos.

  • Mirror

    A few kilometers west of Dimboola, next to the Western Highway, you can find Pink Lake. The pink colour of the water comes from a pigment secreted by microscopic algae. The intensity of the pink varies with the amount of water in the lake. When the lake is drier more light is reflected from the white crystallized salt reducing the impact of the pink. The salt was commercially harvested from the lake for many years and some of the relics from that time can still be seen near the edge of the lake.

  • Common Sandpiper

    It was amazing to see these little birds running at the edge of the water, going up and down the beach as the water floods the beach and then retracts.

  • Australian Pelican

    This pelican was busy drying and preening itself. The Australian Pelican (Pelecanus conspicillatus) is found across Australia and New Guinea on many inland and coastal waters but tends to avoid the very dry desert regions mainly located in the centre of the continent. These pelicans also occur in Indonesia and sometimes in New Zealand and some Pacific Islands close to Australia. The Australian Pelican is the largest of the 8 species of Pelicans found worldwide.

  • Yambuk Sunset

    As often happens, while on holiday the weather didn't fully cooperate for photography. Most days were overcast with no nice sunrises or sunsets. As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. This is what I did with this one chance at getting a nice sunset at the caravan park where we camped.

  • Eastern Great Egret

    One of Australia’s most elegant birds, the snowy-white Eastern Great Egret is often seen wading in a range of wetlands, from lakes, rivers and swamps to estuaries, saltmarsh and intertidal mudflats.

    The eclipse the other night was quite disappointing here as it was so cloudy, windy and cold. I got a few photos of the blood moon, and also this one of Ararat. I thought I'll create a composite depicting the moon over the town.

    One of the most impressive places I've ever visited.
