HMEL0016SonnyI'm sitting in the lounge, snapping away a few shots with my old Nikon Fe series lens ( think 80's ) which I have mounted on my Canon using an adapter. So I'm playing around and liking to shoot a bit tighter, focus is still not perfect, but fun for now HMEL0019Sonnyshot of the skycam, taking off, Botany Bay underneath us, cloudy grey day HMEL0021SonnyKing George Bridge, Sylvania HMEL0022Sonnyrain drops on that skycam HMEL0024Sonny
clouds over the mountains HMEL0026SonnySandstone characteristics of the blue mountains poking through the clouds HMEL0030Sonnyso here is the reason why I put the old Nikon lens on the Canon camera, it's a 135mm, but a lot smaller than a Canon 135mm ( but as you can see in the next lot of photos not as sharp ) and I wanted to try and get some more composed shots of the landscape as opposed to the wider shots I have been taking in the past, I was looking for details, shapes, patterns ( would love to do a dayflight over the deserts and kimberley region, plus some of north west coastlines ) HMEL0031Sonny

HMEL0032Sonnyhaving issues also with the moisture in the atmosphere, so the colours are a little of and the contrast is not right either HMEL0033Sonnybut at least those trees I planted for Jacqui out past Bathurst have finally grown into the heart shaped that I had planned :-)

HMEL0040SonnyI'm no Yann Arthus-Bertrand, but if I had his equipment and access to the specially outfitted planes ( think special glass windows ) you would be see-ing a lot better quality :-) HMEL0042Sonny

too dark to shoot the land now HMEL0099Sonnygetting too dark to shoot anything now, so this is where I have my little gripe about Alan Joyce now. You see, this un Australian chap is in charge at Qantas, and he scrapped a few flights of the schedule, including my favourite QF32, which arrived in Sydney in the evening, which meant you left Singapore in the morning and flew in daylight all over Australia ( and Bali ) so you would get the most amazing views of Australia and even some volcanoes in Indonesia. Now they are all nightflights, arrving at 6am, so not only do you miss out on enjoying these magical vistas of this unique landscape, but you are arrive at 6 in the morning, absolutely knacked and if you are a tourist you can't even check in your hotel yet till 1 or 2 pm. So it's all very un-australina and I say bring back QF32
right, time for a rest now :-)
