Phillip Island – Victoria

This is an old shot from a trip I took down to Victoria a few years ago.

I arrived a little while before sunset and the sky had a thick haze that had been around all day so i was hoping once the sun began to set i would get some good light to work with.  I set up and took a few photos with all different compositions, this image happened by chance whilst changing film the boardwalk caught my eye so i shot a singular frame and turned back to shoot the Nobbies.

Phillip Island has a massive fairy penguin colony so at sunset they close the roads and kick everyone out to stop the little trackers from getting ran over.  The ranger was giving me quite the hurry up but the light was just to good to leave so i kept shooting, in the end he stood in front of my lens during the best sunset I have ever seen.  All part of the game, I did manage to get this one image as well as a few others which you will be able to see in the coming month with the release of my new website.

No swimming…

I was looking through my old images last night and came across a folder of scans that i never got around to editing, this little sucker was one of those hiding scans.

If you shoot or used to shoot with film/slide you might remember a few years ago Fuji was having trouble getting an crucial element used in the production of their Velvia 50. Eventually it vanished off the face of the earth leaving us with a garbage version of our once beloved velvia which is what this shot of jetty in Hervey Bay was was taken using.

I am undecided on this one so your thoughts would be much appreciated…
