Streetscape showing Crown Resort in Barangaroo Sydney NSW Australia.

 

After visiting Sydney for the first time since Covid hit I was shocked to see the new skyline in Darling Harbour. Perhaps living under a rock in Bathurst, I was not expecting to see this at all. It made the news today after being denied it's licence to operate as a casino but I am still struck by its 'beauty' and its contrast to the many buildings around it. Apparently I was not the only one; it was fascinating to see how many people were walking down Darling Harbour with their heads up almost mesmerized by their changed surroundings. Controversy aside how do you like the look of this building?

The rainbow formed out of the bottom of this storm cloud just on sunset and lit up beautifully, It only looked like this for a few minutes before the colours muted and the rainbow went away.

Unfortunately the weather didn't play ball so I thought I would grab a few different perspectives as research for a later trip. Turns out, I am quite happy with how they ended up.. Its funny how you can take photos of a single location at around the same time and end up with 3 completely different styles. Would love to know which one you like the best.   Pit Straight StarterPit Straight StarterSunrise on pit straight at Mount Panorama

Sculptures in the scrub https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2017/11/sculptures-in-the-scrub This walking trail is in the Pilliga National Park. While the access is not too far, the condition of the road can make it take a long time to get to. It's a fairly easy walk with some nice views and a picnic spot. Best of all, there is a number of artworks along the trail which makes this place a special one to visit. Visit the National Parks website for official details and access information.

Spring Snow 2017 https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2017/9/spring-snow-2017 Perfect one day beautiful the next.

The snow was quite localised; nothing in O'Connell, Oberon, some in black springs, and a bit more south of it. Probably still there if you fancy an afternoon drive.

I have taken a heap of photos that I will upload to this blog post as I get the chance. Keep warm :)

Snow 3 waysSnow 3 waysAerial panorama of spring snow fall near Black Springs nsw australia

Snow 3 ways

Aerial panorama of today's snow fall in the Central West near Black Springs NSW, Australia. You can see another snow storm blowing in from the right which ended the flight short.

 

Road to snowhereRoad to snowheresmall snow covered dirt road in the pine forests near Black Springs NSW Australia Road to snowhere

What too much? Can't go wrong with a small dirt road covered in snow in a pine forest can you. This panorama is one of my favorites from my little expedition today. 

 

Cold Colourful LogCold Colourful LogA colourful log in the snow in Black Springs Cold Colourful Log

I appreciated the colour in an otherwise white scene. The orange of the decaying timber and bright grass poking through. Decided to go for a shallow depth of field on this one to really draw the eye to the front of the log.

 

whiteoutwhiteoutSheep and Cattle by a dam in a snow white field near shooters hill Whiteout

Had to feel for the animals in their frozen fields. I don't think the dam was frozen over but I imagine it was a rather cool drink. 

 

Postal ServicePostal ServiceCute letterbox in the snow Postal Service

This letterbox caught my eye. Looked like a mini house with the snow settling quite thick on the roof. You can see its actually snowing quite heavy while this shot was taken. 

 

Maters ChillMaters ChillLooks like Mater from the Cars moive. In a snow field with horses Maters Chill

I thought this truck looked like Mater from the Cars movie. You can see up on the hill near the tree are some horses as well.

 

Snow draped pineSnow draped pinepine tree branch laden in snow lit beautifully Snow draped pine

Loved the lighting on the snow covered pine branch with the dark forest in the background.

But names will never hurt me. I like to capture some of the detail as well as the wide landscapes.

Leading lines through the snow. One of my favorites from the trip. 

 

Snow waySnow wayShooters Hill road in the snow. Grass shadows behind the trees Snow Way

Shooters Hill road in the snow. I like how it looks like the Trees have grass shadows. I guess its because the snow was coming in at an angle? Seems to have cooled off again after a hot weekend.

 

Horses in the snowHorses in the snowThey were very curious what I was up to Horses in the snow

They were very curious what I was up to. Didn't seem to mind the snow though.

Wicked Walu Seafood Restaurant
Warwick Resort, Coral Coast, Fiji

This is the top rated restaurant in Fiji for good reason. The meals are delicious, the staff are great and the view is tough to beat. Every night they light up the torches that lead you across the path to the island. From the deck you can see the fish swimming, and later the reef sharks come in for the left overs.

Beechworth Victoria https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2017/8/beechworth-victoria A series of photos from the lovely town of Beechworth Victoria Australia. The Woolshed waterfalls and a few of the historic buildings in town. But perhaps missing one important part.....

The waterfall was raging at Beechworth victoria. This one is a massive stitched panorama of 9 slow shutter speed shots. It's hard to capture just how large these falls are.

 

 

Beechworth Post OfficeBeechworth Post OfficeBeechworth Post Office at sunset

Beechworth Post Office

Pretty self explanatory. This one was taken at sunset from the cobblestone lined roundabout. I had to get the timing just right to avoid getting any cars in the shot. Thought I would include the lamp post to keep a bit of foreground interest.

 

 

BeechworthBeechworthBeechworth honey discovery with roundabout at sunset Beechworth

I think this shot captures the essence of the town. The Beechworth honey discovery buiding with their unique roundabout at sunset. That's all for my quick trip to Beechworth. I think my favorite part was not captured however, the awesome selection of beers at the brewery.

Old shearing shed in Omeo, Victoria Australia. Shooting into the sun is always a challenge.

Yacht Club - Hamilton Island https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2017/3/yacht-club---hamilton-island Yacht ClubYacht ClubThe Yacht Club at Hamilton Island looking spectacular at night

The Yacht Club looks spectacular at night. This image was taken at 17mm f8 for 30 seconds.

17mm is a nice wide angle to capture the building in its environment. It also gives a larger depth of field.

F8 gives a decent depth of field given the wide angle lens. Ideally I would have shot this around f10 however that would have required a longer shutter speed.

30sec is the max shutter speed you can use on camera without using a cable release or connecting to my phone. I have no idea why they limit it to this, seems like it would be simple to allow you to extend into the minutes. If I had of remembered/been bothered to get out my cable release I would have shot this at ISO100 instead of 640 and at f10.

Well there you go, a slightly lazy shot is better than non at all right? Hope you liked the shot and enjoyed the read.

A stunning Sunset looking east from Bathurst tonight. This is an 11 image panorama so can be printed LARGE. It only stayed around for a few minutes, I didn't have time to find a better foreground so worked with the view I had on hand.. Cant complain :)

Bathurst a beautiful history https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2016/12/bathurst-a-beautiful-history A beautiful historyA beautiful historyAerial panorama of Bathurst at sunset featuring tremain mill, train station, Mount Panorama and the Carillion

Aerial panorama of Bathurst at sunset. I love this shot, it's not often you see Bathurst from this angle and while the focus is Tremain's Mill, there are also some hidden surprises. In the hi-res version, You can read Mount Panorama on the mountain on the very left. You can see the Carillon poking up on the right in the background, also the courthouse. I am getting better at predicting when good sunsets will be, just running out of local locations to capture. If you have ideas, let me know! 

 

Tremain MillTremain MillTremain's Mill at sunrise with silos in background

A more intimate view of Tremain's Mill, with the silos in the background. This is a sunrise shot, I love the complementary colours with the warm light of the sun on the side of the building and the cool shadows of the mill behind.

 

Tremain Mill monochromeTremain Mill monochromeTremain's Mill at sunrise with silos in background

Sometimes I find it hard to decide on the way to process an image. This is a black and white version, I figured it suited the historic nature of the building.

 

Tremain Mill sepiaTremain Mill sepiaTremain's Mill at sunrise with silos in background

Finally, a sepia/creamtone version. I quite like this, really highlights the buildings and their shape rather than being distracted by the colour. I would love to know which is your favorite, leave a comment below.

What a cracking venue for the 2016 inland sea of sound festival. It's a great layout up there this year, with plenty to see and do. Was a great turnout in the end too with people having a blast moshing to the Black Sorrows and dancing with the South African Band Medleko Meropa. Head on up for a nice chilled afternoon of beer and wine on the grass. I'm the official photographer up there, so if you see me scooting about be sure to stop me for a quick chat and photo :)

Kate Miller HeidkeKate Miller HeidkeWhat an cracking venue for such an intimate gig with this amazing artist

What an cracking venue for such an intimate gig with this amazing artist. It took some effort to get this shot just right, I really wanted to capture the 3 elements, the crowd, the artists, and the lights of bathurst in the background. I took this one at a distance on a ladder at 200mm to get some nice compression and bring the 3 elements of the image close together. On top of that f2.8 to let in the most light possible and ISO1600 to get just a short enough exposure so their movement is not too blurred. Oh yeah, and like 50 shots to get just the right moment in time :) I think this is one of my favorite images from the weekend, I feel it really captures magic of the event.

Taken in Coonabarabran which has some of the best sky's to capture the Milky way. This is a six image vertical panorama so it can be printed LARGE. I was all cosy and warm inside, but when the clouds cleared I couldn't resist heading out in the freezing cold to see what I could capture. To say I didn't regret it would be an understatement, I think this is one of my favorite images to date. It puts everything in perspective in an instant.

New holland honey eater in a Gymea Lily.

It's been a while since I have shared a wildlife shot. This one was taken some time ago. Now that it's warming up a little I look forward to getting out and getting more shots like this. I can still remember how quick these birds were and difficult to capture. This was the luckiest shot, the sun was setting and looked epic on this massive Gymea Lily. I framed up the shot and to my delight this little honey eater landed perfectly in frame :)

Kanangra-Boyd National Park, NSW, Australia

 

These spectacular falls are a fairly short steep walk from the carpark at the Kanangra Walls car park. I can’t believe I have never made it out here before. They are spectacular at the moment, not sure how they normally look. There is a fair bit of rough dirt on the way out, with quite a few wallabies and other wildlife to look out for. There are some nice lookouts on the walk out and the falls themselves have a nice secluded feel to them. There are epic falls you can see off in the distance…. might have to do some research :)

Millthorpe NSW Australia https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2016/8/millthorpe-nsw-australia Established in the pioneering era, Millthorpe has a rich agricultural history, a legacy of grand buildings, heritage architecture and a streetscape that has remained largely unchanged since the early 1900’s. The entire village is classified by the National Trust and the village centre has cobbled, bluestone bordered streets. Millthorpe is a living museum being home to a community of about 700 people and comes alive on weekends with locals, visitors and tourists alike.

Bathurst Floods July 2016 https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2016/7/bathurst-floods-july-2016 The low level bridge (Gordon Edgell Bridge) on Hereford Street Bathurst NSW has flooded overnight 12/07/2016. These aerial shots give a good perspective of how the Macquarie River was looking around 9am on a very foggy morning.

 

This is a long exposure shot of the Ben Chifley dam overflow. The  power of the water is amazing, pushing trees down the creek. I have never seen it running this fast before. Enjoy the nice sily smooth waters in this one :)

Ben Chifley Dam OverflowBen Chifley Dam OverflowLong exposure showing the silky smooth water raging out of the dam down the river toward Bathurst.

 

Drone footage flying from this location, up the overflow, looking over the dam and back over the rolling green hills toward Bathurst. This is a single shot uploaded straight to youtube, no fancy editing here.

The Western Advocate contacted me after seeing this footage and put together this article. Of course there are more pun's then my page
http://www.westernadvocate.com.au/story/4051150/dam-fine-sight-of-our-waterway/?cs=115

 

I also got a mention in Prime local news on Friday, you can see a recording here:

This vertical pano shows just how much water is flowing out the overflow of the dam. It really is raging and quite off putting walking down the path beside it.

Check out the ice rink in front of the Courthouse for the 2016 Bathurst Winter Festival. I am stoked to be the official photographer for council this year. It's been great working with them and capturing the mood of the events. Its nice that Bathurstians have an excuse to brave the cold and get out and about this winter. The ice rink, Ferris wheel and illumination will be going till the end of next week, but the final festival night is Saturday evening. See you there, put your smiles on :)

 

All of the Lights All of the lightsAll of the lightsFerris wheel with crowds and fire performers.

This is one of my favs from the Brew & Bite night. I think it captures the mood of the evening with all the different things going on. I like the different sources of lights. The city, the ferris wheel, the fire performers, the glow balloons and the tree lights, the glowing cubes... From all accounts it was a great success, looking forward to what council come up with for next year.

Glen Davis Oil Shale Works https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2016/5/glen-davis-oil-shale-works The Glen Davis Shale Oil Works was a shale oil extraction plant in Glen Davis, New South Wales, Australia which operated from 1940 until 1952 and was the last oil-shale operation in Australia until the Stuart Oil Shale Project in the late 1990s. For the period of 1865–1952, it provided one fifth of the shale oil produced in Australia.

Completed in 1967, Jindabyne Dam is a major dam, located approximately 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) south south-east of the relocated town of Jindabyne. The dam was constructed by a consortia of Utah-Brown and Sudamericana based on engineering plans developed under contract by the Snowy Mountains Hydroelectric Authority.Construction of the dam flooded the settlement of Old Jindabyne that accommodated approximately 300 people. Parts of Old Jindabyne can be seen when the levels of Lake Jindabyne are low. The settlement of East Jindabyne is located above what was Old Jindabyne (wikipedia)

There is nothing particularly special about this shot, but there is something I find really peaceful about it. Perhaps its just memories of being there as opposed to the actual image itself. Would be interested to hear what others think.

Happy Australia Day! 

Panoramic views 400ft above Mount Kosciuszko Australia would make this the highest drone in Australia. It's crazy how barren and rocky the landscape is. I love in this shot how you can just about see the long long path back to the car park at Charlotte Pass, both the long, and short route. You can also see the metal path leading off from the toilet block across toward the chairlift. It's certainly a long testing walk, was so happy after carting the drone all that way the conditions were safe to fly. Enjoy your day, get those tunes cranking :)

The gasworks operated in conjunction with Orange and Lithgow council between 1888 and 1979, it was then leased to AGL who used it until 1987. It is now leased to Jemena and is considered a historic site.

This is how you do the bearded dragon pose in the gold coast. There is something about this image that i really like. I think perhaps the shallow depth of field and the nice filtered light just on the lizards head. I was fortunate that he held this pose long enough for me to get into position.

Another beautiful moody morning on Kingscliff beach. Such a great place. This is a single exposure at 1.3 seconds. I think just the way the wave rushed in for a portion of it made for such a great misty look in the water.. Nice light over the rocks too.

The spectacular sunset from last night. Many of you got to experience the storm first hand, but it was beautiful from a distance... This is a view over a harvested field in Cowra looking back towards Bathurst. The cloud was amazing, difficult to capture all the shades of pink. I had hoped to get a more interesting foreground but when chasing a sunset shot like this you only have a few minutes to capture it, so you have to settle for the best location you can find quick! Looking forward to storm season :)

Wallerawang Power Station is a thermal coal power station, located near Wallerawang, in the Central Tablelands region of New South Wales,Australia. The power station is equipped with two turbo-alternators of 500 megawatts (670,000 hp) each, supplied by C. A. Parsons and Company of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England. Due to dwindling demand, the first of the two generating units was mothballed in January 2013, and the second in April 2014. [wikipedia]

"Mum... Why don't I look like you?". I finally spotted this rare white Kangaroo. The sun was setting and I didn't have my camera with me. I rushed home, got my gear and headed back out. To my delight they were still there. I managed to snap this shot at 600mm before they bounced off out of my view. It was getting quite dark, so I am looking forward to getting a better quality shot in sunlight one day. It certainly was a treat to see such a rare animal with my own eyes. And no, this is not a photoshop trick, they are real. Feel free to share this image or give it a creative caption :)

The perfect view https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2015/11/the-perfect-view The perfect viewThe perfect viewThe view from the highest point of Hamilton Island, Passage Peak

The view from the highest point of Hamilton Island, Passage Peak. This was my favorite view out over the Whitsundays. It was not a hard walk, but it was long and really really humid. This view makes it all worth while though. I just love the vibrant blue water at Hamilton Island. Polarizing sunglasses are a must up here; they really emphasize the rich blues and the contrast of the shadows of the clouds. I had originally only planned to stay for 5 minutes, but once I saw this view I couldn't bring myself to leave it for quite some time.

Wishing you all a peaceful evening and great week ahead.

The FA-18 Super Hornet Jet over the V8 Supercars at Mt. Panorama Bathurst. This was an absolutely spectacular show. I was expecting just a flyover, but it went for a good 10mins, full of tight turns low passes, stalls, and a bunch of things I don't know the names for. I love this shot, such clarity of the metal and seeing the jets and heat coming of the back makes it. The Sigma 150-600 at work again. I had a sore arm holding it up by the end of the show....

I was asked by one of my followers some time ago if I had a shot of the Katoomba skyline. I didn't at the time but after scouting I eventually came up with this shot which I am quite happy with. I actually took this shot from Leura to get a nice perspective of the skyline. Thought a monochrome image might suit this subject and this dreary day.

Hope you all are having a good week and enjoyed the race yesterday!

Fields of Gold - Cowra, NSW, Australia https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2015/9/fields-of-gold---cowra-nsw-australia Well, it seemed people really enjoyed my last series. So time to share another one. I hope you like canola photos, because this blog post is full of them. I have been meaning to get some canola shots for a while now, and while I don't think I have my 'perfect' shot yet, I did enjoy the experience. I hope you enjoy this little tour around the central west near Cowra, NSW, Australia.

Lazy Bees

Lazy Bees - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaLazy Bees - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015

Sooo much pollen, so little time. The easy life for these bees, no long flights to find their pollen. I love the layers in this shot, green crop (what is this by the way?), sheep, canola, bees, horizon. Taken with the sigma 150-600 gives many landscape opportunities.

 

Golden rays

Golden rays - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaGolden rays - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015

God rays over the canola fields. These were shining for quite a while so had to make sure I found a shot which had both canola and the Godrays :)

 

Duck in flight over Canola

Duck in flight over CanolaDuck in flight over CanolaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015

Didn't realise this was a duck when it flew over, sees a ways from water here, but I am sure he knew were he was going. I love the layers of colour and nice contrast of the duck in the sky. Cool little blue feathers he has too :) This one was taken at 600mm 500th second at f/6.3

 

Green n Gold 

Green n Gold - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaGreen n Gold - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015

This is one of my favorite compositions from the trip. The nice curve and mix of colour with the two opposing focal points, one natural and one man made. It is nearly like a natural ying yang symbol.

 

Abstract Canola

Abstract Canola - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaAbstract Canola - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015

I reckon this would make a nice desktop background. Super simple and plain, but still regognisable. It's nearly split into perfect thirds, focused detail in foreground, yellow blur in background, white blur sky.

 

Old Beauty

Old Beauty - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaOld Beauty - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015

I love a dead tree, and what better than one in the middle of a canola field. Just beautiful. I love the the farmer doesnt cut it down for wood and to make working the field easier, but simply goes around it. I got lucky with the weather, clouds make some interest in the sky, but the sun still poked through when I needed it. If you look carefully there are actually a few birds perched in teh branches.

 

Shifting Skies 

Shifting Skies - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaShifting Skies - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015

This is one of my first shots with my new 10stop ND filter. It's a 30 second exposure in full sun. It got some movement captured in the clouds, they were not moving fast enough for the full effect. Yes, thats the dead tree in the middle there, just goes to show what focal length can do for different compositions of the same location.

 

Golden perspective

Golden perspective - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaGolden perspective - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015

Same location again with the same dead tree, but this one from a different perspective, taken about 5m above the last shot, really brings the canola to be the focus of the shot rather than the sky.

 

Golden hour hill

Golden hour hill - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaGolden hour hill - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015

This shot has such an etherial feel to it. The dark storm clouds in the background contrasting with the late afternoon sun setting off to my right lighting up the fields and the trees.

 

Fields of Gold

Fields of Gold - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015
This one gets the title of the blog post. Nothing but a field of golden yellow canola. I took this in the same area as the "abstract Canola" shot and was unsure if I should post both, but I think they have their own unique charm. Would be interested to hear which one people prefer.

 

Golden Tree

Golden Tree - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaGolden Tree - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015

This one has 2 trees separated by about 10kms. An unusual composition, this gum tree is surrounded by colour, something which is quite unusual for this kind of tree. But you know me, I love to find shots which a bit different from the usual you have seen before :)

 

Panorama from Bellevue Hill Lookout

Panorama from Bellevue Hill Lookout - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaPanorama from Bellevue Hill Lookout - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015

A 51 megapixel stitched panorama. If you want this one, you can have it printed as large as you like! :) Crazy to think the new 5ds takes images this large in a single shot. It was a beautiful sunset in Corwa that evening. Bellevue is certainly a nice location to take it all in. You can see the "Golden Tree" in the bottom left of this image.

 

Golden calf

Golden calf - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaGolden calf - Cowra, NSW, AustraliaFields of Gold - Landscape Photography of the Canola Fields in Cowra and surrounds 2015

I noticed the fog rising from a dam on my way home. Fortunatly there was a safe spot to quickly park to get this shot. It was quite dark at this stage after the sun had been down a while, but the sky was still full of colour. This is a long exposure making the moving cours have a ghostly appearance. So much colour in this shot.

 

Well that's it.. I hope you enjoyed the little trip in the central west around the Cowra, New South Wales, Australia. It really is beautiful this time of year (early spring).

Bushrangers Cave - Mt. Victoria https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2015/9/bushrangers-cave Bushrangers CaveBushrangers CaveA beautifully shaped cave entrance with views over the Kanimbla valley

A beautifully shaped cave entrance with views over the Kanimbla valley located in Mt. Victoria, Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia. I can't believe I have never found this place up till now, its such a photogenic location. It was a nice surprise to see the Gary P Hayes Gallery right at the start of where the walk begins. I dropped in to say hello and we had a great chat. Thanks for the directions to the cave ;)

There are two levels in the cave and a conveniently placed chair to climb up. I wish I had a photo of the crazy position I got myself into to frame this shot. It certainly wouldn't meet any OH&S standards that's for sure. I wanted to get right up close to the crack in the rock about 10 foot off the cave floor. It makes for a nice leading line drawing your eye through the image and out into the view of the valley.

I just love the teardrop shape to the cave entrance. There is some crazy dynamic range in this shot, I had to shoot 5 exposures and blend them just to get all the detail of the cave as well as the valley. I have been dying to share this one, but been too busy with other projects. I hope you enjoy!

It was such a beautiful day on Saturday. Felt like spring had arrived early, so I thought I would enjoy a drive and a view of this historic train from the 1930's. It was a tad slower than I thought, so I had a good opportunity to talk to some of the locals also waiting on the bridge just near Wimbledon. Apparently there is a local Koala that lives the the trees just near here. I have never seen a Koala around this region so I might have to head back sometime and have a look.

Old stuff always looks good in Black and White right? Would be interested to hear which one you prefer. Personally for this shot I prefer the colour, but for the remaining shots I have posted in B&W. Hope you enjoy.

Now I am not a train person. I must say I was a little disappointed by the lack of steam.. There was a diesel engine on the back which I had heard was just to pull it back to Bathurst. But looking at this image it looks a bit suss. Like there is a little steam jet just behind the main chimney thing.. Is this a 'fake' engine? (clearly I know nothing about trains :) )

I thought I would go for something a little different and capture this old farm equipment (anyone know what it is?) while the Loco went past at Perthville.

 

Well that's it, hope you enjoyed. Always up for something a little different :)

Helensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2015/8/helensburgh-metropolitan-tunnel There is so much history to this place. The metro tunnel is 624m long, it opened in 1888 and closed in 1915. Some believe the tunnels are haunted as there have been a number of deaths here. Since their closure they have been used as a mushroom farm and a water reservoir. 

I have been meaning to get to this location for quite some time. Little did I know how easy it is to get to once you know where it is. I arrived just as the sun was going down, which was perfect timing as I could get both daylight shots of the entrance plus could hang around till it got dark enough to get some photos of the glowworms. 

 

Helensburgh Sign

Helensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel SignHelensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel SignHelensburgh sign and the entrance to the metropolitan tunnel

The original sign was replaced by this flash one in 2012. Depending on the amount of rain the tunnel can flood all the way up to this point. It leaves the tracks quite muddy. Fortunately it was dry enough I was able to venture deep in to the tunnel. I was stoked about how easy it is to access, it is only about 50m from where you can park the car. I love how green it is here.

 

Metropolitan Tunnel Entrance

Helensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel EntranceHelensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel Entranceentrance to the metropolitan tunnel

A classic view of the entrance to the metropolitan tunnel in Helensburgh. When it has been raining a waterfall forms which runs down the right hand side of the tunnel. I love the moss and ferns in this place, makes it feel other worldly and so close to Sydney makes this a quick escape from the big smoke. You can see how muddy it is, I had to balance my way down the tracks to avoid getting too muddy.

 

 

Glowworms!

Helensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel glowwormsHelensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel glowwormsGlowworms looking deep into the Helensburgh Metroplolitan tunnel

I was pretty stoked to see how many glowworms there were in these tunnels. Right in the city. I saw more glowworms in this tunnel than the 'Glowworm Tunnel' in the Wollemi National Park. This is the view looking south not too far into the tunnel. Glowworms are so hard to photograph. They are dimmer than the stars, fortunately they don't move as fast. To capture the glowworms I needed a 2min exposure at f2.8 and high ISO.

 

Skunks Message

Helensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel messageHelensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel messageskunks message

Moving deeper into the tunnel the glow worms have gone. I think this is because the tunnel regularly floods above this level so they cannot live here. It is pitch black at this point so required some light painting with our torches in order to expose anything. This shot is taken at f5 to get a little bit more depth of field and over 30 seconds. It was quite eerie this far down, and the graffiti capped it off. 

"She told me all the inhuman pain and suffering she had endured was worth it as it finally led her to me... Skunk"

Awww.. Well I am happy for you Skunk. To be honest I was expecting a much darker messaged painted here.

 

 

The end of the line

Helensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel floodedHelensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel floodedblack and white shot showing the flooded end of the tunnel

Well I made it to the end.. Well as far as I could get without a swim anyway. I nearly lost a shoe to the thick sticky mud and it took a while for my tripod to settle in to the mud before I could take my shot. There is an urban legend that there is an old steam train under water down here. I love the thought of how it might look but I certainly was not curious enough to get the scuba gear out!

You can see the water stretching out closing the tunnel off in the distance. I love the tones and reflection in this image so thought I would process it in black and white to really emphasize them. 

 

The great escape

Helensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel glowworms outHelensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel glowworms outThe glowwoms looking out of the Helensburgh metropolitan tunnel

The glow worms looking out of Helensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel. I love this shot. You can see the tracks drawing your eyes out to the greenery outside. The sun had set and outside was quite dark, barely visible to the eyes, but over 2.5mins at high ISO it nearly looks like daytime. It's amazing to see just how much light the glow worms give off, you can see the roof and even some of the walls are lit green. There is also a super bright little fella on the bottom right near the tracks. It certainly took some experimentation and patience to get this shot. In fact just when I thought I had it set up right my battery ran out! Long exposures really sap the juice. It meant a run/walk back to the car to get the spare. But after seeing the result, I am glad I went to the effort. I hope you like this shot as much as I do :)

 

The other tunnel

Helensburgh North tunnelHelensburgh North tunnelLooking in to the fenced off tunnel to the north of the metropolitan tunnel Just across the road there is another tunnel which is fenced off. This is a much shorter tunnel. So short in fact that you can just see the end of it in this shot. The tracks are no longer here, the walls are covered in graffiti and there is a beam across the center of the tunnel. This was the tunnel apparently used for growing mushrooms and there is still some electrical wiring about. As if it wasn't creepy enough I have heard that the metal beam has been used for suicide. Very sad. I would hate to be the person to come across that, perhaps that is why its all fenced off now. While the tunnel itself is quite dry, there was quite a lot of mud leading up to it, so was tricky to get close enough to put my lens between the fence to get this shot.... Back to the other tunnel now to end on a higher note....

 

Stars of heaven and earth

Helensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel stars and glowwormsHelensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel stars and glowwormsStars and glowworms looking into the Helensburgh Metropolitan Tunnel at night

This is one of my favorite images of the series and perhaps all time. I love the connection between the stars in the sky, and the 'stars' in the earth. It's nearly like there are white holes in the sky (stars) because the little blue pieces of sky have fallen down into the tunnel (glowworms). The glowworms came out great in this shot and compliment the tracks leading your eyes deep in to the image where you can see some people with torches at the end of the tunnel. The nice green moss over the textured bricks and scattered light from the trees really add to the mood of this image. Feels like another world.

Well there it is. I hope you enjoyed this little tour of Helensburgh metropolitan tunnel. If you have any questions feel free to comment below. I have been getting a positive response on social media so far so I might look at doing another series soon.

On a cold frosty morning these lambs were super excited to see the sun. They were jumping and prancing around, back and forth. He certainly got some solid air on this jump! I love the warmth of the sun on the lambs while they play with the contrast of the cool frosty blue tones in the shadows behind. I wonder what they were saying to each other, feel free to caption ;)

A macro image of a European Wasp (Vespula germanica). I was a little nervous about getting up so close to this little guy. I hear their sting is super painful. He was quite a good model for me staying very still while I got up close with the necessary lighting to get this super clear shot. Unfortunately not still enough for me to be able to take multiple shots for focus stacking. I presume the europeans have all kinds of wasps and this is just one sort? We certainly do.

Gardens of Stone https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2015/7/gardens-of-stone It has been great getting out to the Gardens of Stone and the unprotected parts of the Newnes state forest. Such hidden wonders.

I thought I would put together a blog post showing some of my favorite images from my adventures... 

 

Pagoda Snow

A part of the unprotected area to be included in the Gardens of Stone this is just out of Lithgow. I was really surprised to see snow still on the rocks at sunset the day after the snow falls. I would have loved to get out there when the snow first fell. Hope you all had a good weekend.

Carne Creek Valley

Newnes State Forest, NSW, Australia

What a spectacular view looking out over the gorge that carne creek runs through. It was a moody cloudy day, but you can just see a ray of light shining on the furthest cliff. I love the way the valley winds it's way off into the distance.

Living on the edge

Newnes State Forest, NSW, Australia

There is something about this shot I really love. I think the contrast of the trees against the soft tones in the valley perhaps. These trees are certainly living on the edge.

Rainbow Rock

Newnes State Forest, NSW, Australia

Well something a little different this Monday evening. I like to mix up my photography, from the vastness of the milky way to the seemingly insignificant rock on the ground. I spotted this one on a trail through the Newnes state forest while photographing for the Gardens of Stone. You would not think it from the outside, but it has such amazing layers of colour. Now if there are any mineral experts out there I would love to know what the colours of rock are and their significance.

Lost in time

The Lost City, Newnes State Forest, NSW, Australia, Milky way.

The Lost City is a location in the Newnes State forest which is currently unprotected. It is not very well known, perhaps because of the hecktic 4wd access track. A big thanks to David for getting me out and back at night in one piece.

The Milky way is truely beautiful. It always does my head in how much is out there that the naked eye simply cannot see. But with the aid of careful planning, a good quality camera, fast lens, long exposures, and careful post-production, it really comes to life! This image is a stitched panorama of 6 individual images. I just couldn't fit it all in a single frame. The shutter speed is maxed out before star trails started becoming noticeable.

It was going to be the perfect night for a great shot, middle of winter with nice cool crisp 'non-distorty' air. A new moon (ie. no moon, that was setting early anyway). Clear dark skys... That was at least until the clouds rolled in before we got there. We actually spent most of the time taking other pictures in the snow and rain. There was still snow on the plants around which frequelty dropped off making a sound and some movement, as if there were animals around bushes.

Fortunatly for about 15 minutes there was a gap in the clouds large enough to get a clear shot of the milky way right over the top of the lost city pagodas. I think some portions of the image were still masked by cloud but for the most part it was amazing. Between each shot I had to quickly wipe the water off the lens from the rain before the next.

It always is nice to remember to put the camera down, and look up. It is so awe inspiring.

How little we truly do know...

Pagoda Surprise

Made it just in time to see this spectacular sunset over the Pagodas. It only lasted about 5 mins so had to be quick. It was nice to meet some of the Sydney Morning Herald Clique group led by Nick Moir and Wolter Peeters. You can see some of them making the most of the magical light on the pagodas. I actually had to pull some saturation out of this image because it was maxing out the sRGB colour space which is the most common standard monitors support.

Sunset on Newnes state forest

Well I finally got to get some photos of the pagodas at sunset. If the Colong Foundation for Wilderness is successful the sun will set on much of the Newnes state forest and become protected with the extension of the Gardens of Stone National Park.
This one is taken from the top of a pagoda with a nice little puddle on top. I positioned to get a nice reflection of the one cloud that was lit up from the sunset.


I have been keen to try out some new techniques. This image is a composite of 6 others all taken at different focal points to achieve infinite depth of field while avoiding diffraction. You can see the image is in focus from a few centimeters from the lens all the way through to the trees on the horizon. A much easier way to get a similar effect would be to use f22 and focus about 1/3 of the way in the image. But that would result in a softer image.

Cathedral Cave

One of the many hidden locations in the NSW state forest. A big thanks to Yuri and the leaders of this walk for taking me to this location. Not a chance I would have been able to find it by myself! You would never guess there is anything like this from the nearby dirt road. It was good to do some good old fashioned bush walking, no fancy boardwalks or man made stairs here! Oh, and if you were not impressed, look for the people in this image to give you an idea of the massive scale of this cave :)

Snow in Bathurst https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2015/7/snow-in-bathurst Well, I thought seeing as though Orange got a snow Album it would be rude not to do one for Bathurst. I have never seen snow this heavy in town before. I was only telling someone the day before where they could drive to see snow and that it never snows in town.. Well it saved them the trip. Town was a buzz, even before the sun had risen snowmen were being constructed in peoples front yards.

I'm not sure if its even view able on here. It is 27000 pixels wide from 17 shots stitched together. If you did want a print, the resolution is so large you can pretty much just choose which part of the landscape you want to print!

Hope you enjoyed it!

Sunset on Newnes State Forest https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2015/7/sunset-on-newnes-state-forest Sunset on Newnes State ForestSunset on Newnes State ForestPerhaps it will be the end of the Newnes forest if the colong wilderness is successful in extending the Gardens of Stone
Well I finally got to get some photos of the pagodas at sunset. If the Colong Foundation for Wilderness is successful the sun will set on much of the Newnes state forest and become protected with the extension of the Gardens of Stone National Park.
This one is taken from the top of a pagoda with a nice little puddle on top. I positioned to get a nice reflection of the one cloud that was lit up from the sunset.


I have been keen to try out some new techniques. This image is a composite of 6 others all taken at different focal points to achieve infinite depth of field while avoiding diffraction. You can see the image is in focus from a few centimeters from the lens all the way through to the trees on the horizon. A much easier way to get a similar effect would be to use f22 and focus about 1/3 of the way in the image. But that would result in a softer image.


Night all!

Antarctic Vortex 2015 https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2015/7/arctic-vortex-2015 Well that was fun. I was supposed to be heading out to the Gardens of stone on Sunday to get some more photos, but not surprisingly the highway was closed and it was forced to be canceled. Seeing as I was up and at 'em I thought I would go for a drive to Orange. 

Snow on a road in Spring HillSnow on a road in Spring Hill I had heard the road to Orange was closed, but it didn't seem to be. At least not the back way. I grabbed this shot near Spring Hill. A random dirt road sided by beautiful trees.

 

Snowy beside road Mt. CanobolasSnowy beside road Mt. Canobolas Heading toward the back of Mt. Canobolas things started getting real. I went exploring down one of the pine forest access roads which was covered in snow.

 

Snowy pine forest mt canobolasSnowy pine forest mt canobolas This is the view looking up at the pine trees beside that very road.

 

Snowy dirt road Mt. CanobolasSnowy dirt road Mt. Canobolas Another side road around the back of Mt. Canobolas had these deciduous trees which i thought looked pretty cool in the snow. There were a bunch of birds around this area so I switched to my telephoto lens and when hunting.

 

 

Bird in the snowBird in the snow Score! How cute is this little guy in the grass and snow. He looks like a miniature puffin bird to me. No idea, if anyone knows comment below :) There were a whole flock of them. They kept skipping from one area to the next as I walked toward them down the road. They kept this up for about 500m before finally flying in to the forest.

 

Kangaroos making a break for itKangaroos making a break for it I was on a roll with wildlife.. Correct lens on and managed to capture these cold Kangaroos seeking greener pastures!

 

Snow avenueSnow avenue I thought this avenue of trees looked nice with some solid compression at 150mm

 

Snowy tar road Mt. CanobolasSnowy tar road Mt. Canobolas The main road was starting to get pretty hectic. Time to turn around I think....

 

 

Going to need more than a credit cardGoing to need more than a credit card After this I went in to town in search of a nice warm coffee, some fuel and a muffin (yes in that order). This is a random house in Orange with a very well covered car.

 

Orange Main streetOrange Main street I love a bit of symmetry. This is a fairly iconic view of orange I thought. Much of the snow had melted from the road itself. From here on out, most of the shots were taken in the sleet and snow. I am glad my camera is weather sealed.

This cute little bird was out and about in freezing frosty morning. I thought we could use a break from all the illuminate bathurst pictures. Is this just a sparrow? So hopeless with birds, I just know they are cute. I was lucky to get this shot because I couldn't feel my fingers anymore. It was about -4 degrees at the time I believe. Looking forward to the days getting warmer that's for sure...

Illuminate Bathurst Winter Festival https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2015/7/illuminate-bathurst-winter-festival Well the excitement has been building over the past few weeks and it's finally here. After a few hiccups with the first event which you can read about on my Illuminate Bathurst blog post the latest installment is set to be a cracker and is happening tonight (4/7/2015) starting at 4pm. So rug up, strap on some skates and be ready to enjoy some good wine and music. You can see all the information on this evenings proceedings on the Bathurst200 Illuminate Bathurst update

But now for what you came for.. Some photos of the event. I will be adding to this Blog post as the event continues so please be sure to check back in and see all the pics from this fantastic event.

Illuminate Bathurst SetupIlluminate Bathurst SetupIce rink setup This one was taken on Thursday night. You can just see the worker on the ice hosing it down. They had just laid the Bathurst logo on the ice and were sealing it down. It's so nice to see the lights in town, gives a sense of activity and life to the town. People were often walking past having a bit of a look around.

 

Ice Skates in Bathurst!?Ice Skates in Bathurst!?Plenty of skates for all! There have already been a few people lucky enough to have a skate on the ice, our Mayor being one of them. But rest assured, there are plenty of skates for all. This weekend is already booked out, but there are still plenty of spots available throughout the week.

 

 

Come join the penguins!Come join the penguins!Bathurst200 Winter Illumination ice rink Come down and join the penguin conga line! These little guy are keen to get out on the ice. I am too. Something a bit nice about outdoor skating at night. These guys will help you out if your not a great skater and want some freedom from the walls!

 

Will you join Ron on the ice?Will you join Ron on the ice?Penguins help you skate Oh, did I mention they are cute... Ron is leading the charge here. Go get 'em mate..

 

Star of Bethlehem at Bathurst Winter IlluminateStar of Bethlehem at Bathurst Winter IlluminateI love this shot and how you can see Venus and Juptier slow close in the background Flying high. This gives a great perspective of Kings Parade and what you will see tonight.. You can also see 'The star of Bethlehem' in this shot, Venus and Jupiter are still quite close in the sky. There is a plane flying over to the left too. I like how you can see the reflection of the ice rink in the courthouse.

 

Bathurst200 ice rinkBathurst200 ice rink No mistake where this is.. You go Bathurst. Really like all the hard work and events the council have been putting on this year. It's nice to see Bathurst being promoted as more then just a race track (not that there is anything wrong with the mighty Mt. Panorama). I just hope that it doesn't all stop after the bicentenary.

 

Bathurst Ice Rink sunsetBathurst Ice Rink sunsetLooking amazing I think this is one of my favorite shots. Taken from the ice at sunset.. My feet were freezing and the tripod was far less stable than I am used to. Will be interesting to see how the ice fairs with hundreds of people skating on it over the next week.

 

Illuminate BathurstIlluminate BathurstOne of the bolder projections on the Courthouse as part of the Bathurst 200 celebrations Looking forward to seeing what 'present' themed projections they have come up with for this weeks illumination show.. This is a shot from the last event which I quite liked.

 

Bathurst Ice Rink elevatedBathurst Ice Rink elevated Another fav of mine which really highlights the features of the park from the war memorial to the ice rink and the carillon. Well that's it for now folks, see you out tonight. Don't forget to rug up, and pop back here for updates :)

 

 

Illuminate Bathurst Winter Festival afternoon

What a great night! All I have heard is positive feedback, I wasn't aware of any major dramas this time around and there was such a variety of things to see and do I was floating around the whole evening getting various shots of all the action. The crowds were large but built slowly from the 4pm start. I think many people electing to come down once it got dark for dinner and the lights. For this section I will post up some of the shots taken during the daylight hours of the festival. It's a very small selection of the photos I took, so if you are after a specific shot to licence or for a print send me a message on my contact page and I will see what i have.

Swing Factor - Illuminate BathurstSwing Factor - Illuminate Bathurst

Swing Factor got the atmosphere started from Denison College with a stunning backdrop in the heart of the city.

 

Food Stalls - Illuminate BathurstFood Stalls - Illuminate Bathurst The sun set behind the buildings in town and the food and wine stalls were already getting some interest from the crowd. I love the setting sun lighting up the lanterns from the first Illuminate Bathurst Festival. A nice touch. 

 

Jo Carter carving it up in BathurstJo Carter carving it up in BathurstAustralian National Figure Skating Championships 2007 It was great to see Jo Carter in action. She is the 2007 Australian national champion and wowed the crowd with her performance. It was tricky to get a good view, so time to get a better perspective....

Professional Skaters showing the crowdProfessional Skaters showing the crowd The professional skaters doing there thing in Bathurst's temporary outdoor ice rink. These guys really drew in the crowd, what an iconic regional location to do it in! In this shot I ran with a slower shutter speed to really try and capture the motion of the skaters, I think it works well :)

 

IMG_4708IMG_4708

It didn't take long for the wine and food stalls to start filling up. It was good to see they really stocked up this time, no dramas getting food all night. This is a different perspective from the top of one of the nearby buildings.

 

Pro Skaters thank the appreciative crowdPro Skaters thank the appreciative crowdSkating performance as part of Illuminate Bathurst Winter Festival

Well the end of the performance and the pro skaters bowed to the applauding crowd. It was a really good perspective to see them do their thing. I have a short video too, so if there is enough interest I might get it up on youtube or something.

 

IMG_4735IMG_4735

Well after the crowd got to see how it is done they got the opportunity to try it for themselves. The ice rink was sold out on the weekend, there were people skating all night, but what I was surprised about was there was a decent crowd watching all night too. Always good for a laugh and quite a few stacks too.. Hope everyone was ok.. 

 

 

Illuminate Bathurst Winter Festival evening

Food and Wine marketsFood and Wine markets Well as the sun went down the crowds increased and food and wine markets were doing a cracking trade. There was such a nice selection of local businesses. Personally I went for the roast lamb roll from porters. Nice and warm hit the spot in on this chilly winters evening.

 

Happy faces at the marketsHappy faces at the markets Served with a smile. I it seemed like everyone was enjoying the night. The low light certainly pushed the camera to the limit. Depth of field is a trade off with image quality in low light conditions. I chose to capture the nice smile of the customer in focus for this one...

 

Carillon a lightCarillon a light I love the blue glow of the Carillon this time. Certainly easier to capture then the red too ;) Was nice to see a lot more seating this time, the lights in the street added to the atmosphere too. 

 

CenteredCenteredProjections from inside the courthouse Well, Had to have another go of this shot this time round. Took the tripod this time so I could get a better perspective. I just wish I had waited a little longer till the silent disco started up. It was quite popular. I liked the new location on at the courthouse. This is a 30 second exposure. It captures the moody light and a sense of mystery in the shadows.

 

Bathurst200 Ice BlockBathurst200 Ice BlockBathurst200 Ice Block 1815-2015 Elsa was guarding this fancy block of ice... Anyone know how its done? very cool. (terrible pun not intended.. but then not deleted either).

 

Sheer JoySheer JoyThe snow machine was a massive hit with the kids Sheer Joy!! The kids loved the snow machine so much. I captured this one on the fly and was so happy with the result. There is something about it, I can't quite put my finger on, full of emotion I guess.

 

Crowd watching ice groomersCrowd watching ice groomers Crowd watching ice groomers and pro skaters in between sessions. It's amazing that the rink has been fully booked out for the entire week. Enjoy everyone!

Father and SonFather and SonTaking photos of the light show The alleyways were projected again, this time round, a lot more colourful. I thought this one was cute as you can see a father and son taking photos of the light show.

Arabesk violinist - a true performerArabesk violinist - a true performer Arabesk! One of the coolest bands I have had the pleasure of seeing in a while. This is Veren Grigorov playing his violin to the backdrop of the carillon in Bathurst as part of the Illuminate Bathurst Winter Festival. Lest we forget the sacrifices that were made which enables us to be so free to celebrate like this.

Veren is a true performer, cheeky and fun. He had the crowd up and dancing and having a great time. This is one of his more serious moments. I have a stack of shots of this band, I will endeavor to pick a few more to post up.

Nice car... There were multiple projections in the back alley this year :)

 

Family friendly food stallsFamily friendly food stalls This year there were 3 food areas which helped with the queues. This is the family friendly area with yummy pocket friendly options.

 

Outdoor screening of frozenOutdoor screening of frozen

Frozen x2 - Pretty sure these people must have been frozen watching Frozen. It was screening all night during the Illuminate winter festival. There is talk of making this an annual event which I think is a great idea.

 

bathurst 200 carillonbathurst 200 carillon

Bathurst 200 carillon. I like the shadows of the lettering on the memorial. Its amazing how many people were getting photos with the 200 sign.

 

 

lightning poilightning poithese toys aint cheap

I was very impressed with these glow poi dancers. I can actually spin myself so I jumped straight online to get some of these pixel poi.. Turns out I might need to sell a few more photos, well over 1000 dollars. They are led strips that change with motion to make a picture in your mind. Very cool effect.

 

Everyone wanted a photo with Elsa!Everyone wanted a photo with Elsa!even the snowman

Everyone wanted a photo with Elsa! Poor young lady must have froze sitting on that ice chair all night!

 

Roving Illumination RobotsRoving Illumination RobotsThese dudes were cool

Roving Illumination Robots by the markets. These guys were cool and very popular with the fans.. Made walking on stilts look easy!

 

Good Photo!Good Photo! Nice photo!

 

ArabeskArabeskI had to include a full band shot. I have so many Arabesk. I had to include a full band shot. I have so many others if anyone wants to see.

Well that's pretty much it for the main celebration night. I hope you enjoyed. If you want any images you can buy prints directly from the website or contact me for commercial licencing. I have many more shots, if anyone wanted something specific, but this gives a good sample of the evening.

Swirls - Court House projectionSwirls - Court House projectionPart of the Illuminate Bathurst Winter Festival I made it down during the week of Illumination to get some shots of the courthouse lights without the crowd. The Swirls were by far my most favorite projection so far.. Very cool, really needs a video to do it justice.

 

letters - Court House projectionletters - Court House projectionPart of the Illuminate Bathurst Winter Festival The letters were probably my second fav. Pretty cool. I haven't studied them yet to see if I can spot any words, can you?

 

Up close and personal - Court House projectionUp close and personal - Court House projectionPart of the Illuminate Bathurst Winter Festival Up close and personal. Thought I would try out a different angle. It towers above

 

IMG_5172IMG_5172 I loved the fairy lights in the trees... Can't we just keep them all year round?? 

 

Fairy lights in the treesFairy lights in the treesIlluminate Bathurst winter festival I am always a bit of a sucker for abstract photography. This is the fairy lights in the tree waaaay out of focus.. Such nice bokeh on this lens.

 

From a distanceFrom a distanceCarillon and Church lit up for Illuminate Bathurst Winter Festival from a distance It's nice to see town lit up from a distance. This one is shot at 480mm and gives a different perspective on town center. You can even see the old gasworks looking large in the background. The bells are even going in the church as they were practicing playing them that evening.

One of the sights that really adds to a nice country drive through the central west. I loved the look of this old abandoned cottage beside the road, so stopped to take a pic. I can only imagine the stories this shack could tell... 

Sometimes Mondays feel a bit like this after a great weekend. Hope you had a good one too. Hope you like the pic!

One of the many hidden locations in the NSW state forest. A big thanks to Yuri and the leaders of this walk for taking me to this location. Not a chance I would have been able to find it by myself! You would never guess there is anything like this from the nearby dirt road. It was good to do some good old fashioned bush walking, no fancy boardwalks or man made stairs here! Oh, and if you were not impressed, look for the people in this image to give you an idea of the massive scale of this cave :)

Have a good week all!

Beautiful Australia - Royal National Park https://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2015/6/beautiful-australia-royal-national-park Beautiful Australia - Royal National ParkBeautiful Australia - Royal National ParkOne of my dream shots, capturing this location with waterfalls into the ocean at sunset.

What a beautiful country we live in, and what a spectacular five minutes of light to capture it. A dream shot, capturing this location with waterfalls that flow off a cliff directly in to the ocean at sunset. I knew exactly where I wanted to capture it, how I would capture it, and how I expected it to look. I am pleased to say, I can now see the image from my mind on screen, and now you can see it too!

It was an epic walk, one which required much care leaving this location in the dark. With low battery power in my 'torch' I had to ration its use and walked much of the way back by star light only using it when needed for rocky sections and creek crossings. I had a very busy weekend of photography taking over 1000 images. The things I do for my passion. I think this is my new favorite image and likely end up as a massive print on my wall :)
