Tekapo Lupines

Tekapo Lupines by Darkelf Photography

Posted on 2014-07-03

Continuing with the lovely morning at Lake Tekapo in New Zealand back in the Spring of 2013...

a bonus at that time was that the beautiful lupines just started to bloom and provided colours that complimented the dawn mood and light very nicely... not all of them were blooming just yet and i needed to walk around to find a composition that would work for me...

i hope you like the result...

Time trial event at Collector Pumpkin Festival

Pumpkin race by Stephen

Posted on 2014-05-14

I am at the annual Collector Pumpkin Festival. Here, there is a prize for the fastest pumpkin as well as the largest! In this shot, you see a very determined wheelbarrow racer in the time trial event.

At harvest time, the village of Collector is famous for its pumpkin growing contest and novelty events. And of course you can always look forward to hot pumpkin soup on a cold autumn day.

a dark touch of history

a dark touch of history by Darkelf Photography

Posted on 2014-03-03

You can see the remains of the main prison building on the left and how it fits with this rather picturesque location...

The dark past of Port Arthur is not only the convict history, it is also where Australia's worst post-colonial mass murder took place on 28 April 1996... the subsequently convicted perpetrator murdered thirty five people and wounded twenty five more before being captured... this event led to a national ban on semi-automatic shotguns and rifles...

Street art in laneway at the Ainslie Shops

Down memory lane by Stephen

Posted on 2014-02-27

Cool street art in a laneway behind the Ainslie Shops. I grew up in this area and currently live not far away. Canberra draws much of its character from its suburban shops. Ainslie has one of the oldest neighbourhood centres. The idea of a local community focus is still crucial to the planning of our suburbs. You will often find shopfronts facing or surrounding a small plaza area with shade trees and public art. Places such as Ainslie typically offer a small supermarket, café, and restaurant.

Beach by : Helen :

Posted on 2014-01-20

I spend quite a deal of my life at this place, as you would know if you have followed my blog over the years. This photo was taken recently during our very hot summer when there are many people visiting the beaches around the two bays of Melbourne. I usually find myself alone on this beach. It is my special place for peace and reflection as I walk and take photos.

Loading Zone cafe in Odgers Lane Civic

Loading Zone by Stephen

Posted on 2014-06-20

I am having a day out shooting in a street photography style. I am now at the Loading Zone cafe. Laneways such as you see here mostly give service access to the back entrance of shops and cafes. However, here in Odgers Lane, the Loading Zone cafe creates a very gritty urban mood with its setting.

moving through time and space

moving through time and space by Darkelf Photography

Posted on 2014-05-15

A colourful and mystical sunset at my favourite spot - Burns Beach... when i took this photo late last year, the ocean returned almost all the sand it took away during the Winter and most of the rocks were already covered... this prompted me to try a composition without the usual rock elements in the foreground...

Megan Washington at Australia Celebrates Live

Megan Washington by Stephen

Posted on 2014-01-30

Megan Washington performs at Australia Celebrates Live. A crowd of twenty thousand made for an exciting event. Before the bands hit the stage, it all began with a ceremony for the Australian of the Year Award. Later, a very fresh and relevant line up of music acts. Washington topped the bill with Matt Corby.

Megan Washington is a most versatile musician and songwriter; and equally at home with jazz, indie pop and rock.

A robberfly macro

The eyes have it! by Bron

Posted on 2012-05-25

Robber flies are wonderful hunting flies whose eyesight ensures they eat (they don't know how to build supermarkets yet) Instead it's other flies and spiders on the menu.

About those eyes: They are compound eyes. Instead of one lens they see through two spheres with many lenses. Each lens of the compound eye sees its own image, so what the fly sees is like a mosaic. The more lenses, the higher the resolution. The two large spherical eyes of a fly provide an almost complete 360 degree vision.

Tri Nguyen with Gift of Refuge model refugee boat

Canberra, Australia

Flag of AU

Tri Nguyen steps down to the shore of Lake Burley Griffin after completing his 400 mile walk from Melbourne to Canberra. His pilgrimage was to deliver a model of the boat he and his father and sister fled Vietnam in 1982. Tri and his support team pulled the boat along on a set of wheels. It was an inspiring journey and Gift of Refuge by Tri. His walk was possible because of the hospitality of the people he met along the way.

burning sky and water

burning sky and water by Darkelf Photography

Posted on 2013-11-26

I turned around and witnessed the early stages of a fantastic sunset developing over the Snowy Mountains and the river... the water was trickling very slowly (as it was just after the Summer season) and this allowed for mirror like reflections of the colourful clouds...

Romantic Sunset by tengtan

Posted on 2007-03-16

The dying rays of the sun seem to project the image of the liner that will take the young lovers on their honeymoon cruise.

Melbourne's Port Phillip Bay can be quite a romantic environment at sunset.
