Last weekend, my family and I stayed in Great Mackerel Beach - a place to the north of Sydney, only accessible by boat (or a longish bush walk), overlooking Pittwater and Barrenjoey Headland (with its lighthouse, dating back to 1881).


These shots were taken from a lookout on a nearby hillside as the sun came up:

25mm DA lens:

The previous morning had been very different - clear skies, with some fog over Barrenjoey Headland (seen from the beach) - shot with 120mm A lens:

During the daytime, we were visited by a confident kookaburra (taken with the 6x7 200mm [final version] lens):

And, of course, being me, I couldn't resist doing this. Shot with 28-45mm lens @ 38mm

Great picture, thanks for sharing. Is such a relaxing scene, feels like I need to pull up a chair, add a glass of wine and sit and watch it.

Thanks for sharing.

The 645 A or FA 120 mm f/4 macro is as good at infinity as it is stunning close-up. Nicely done series, Ed.

Love that, Matt. Full of depth, atmosphere, tranquility... My eye wants to wander around it...

Excellent on the kookaburra. One doesn't normally think of medium format as a birding option.

Thanks, my friend. But before I take too much credit, it was like shooting fish in a barrel. The bird is so confident, it simply stood there, taking in its surroundings, quite unconcerned that I was standing within a short distance, wielding a 645Z!

Stunning photos. Absolutely amazing. Australia should purchase and use these to increase tourism.

Thanks for sharing,

One large pink dahlia

It is sure tough posting in this club with all the fantastic talent and wonderful landscapes, but I will dare to offer a single pink dahlia from our garden.

KIT: 645D with Pentax 67 55mm f 4.0.

Hi,

The bird is saying 'Here. This is my good side.'

Lighthouse shots. Yes, I like lighthouses.

I had planned to go to the North Carolina coast again this weekend, but we have these storms now and so I don't think that will happen. Next up is Hatteras and Ocracoke. I also need Cape Lookout on the 645D, but I have a decent enough image to work with from the Df from last summer if I must. I have a not-so-good 645D shot of Hatteras but no shots at all of Ocracoke. I want to have the quilt block set ready for the Christmas gift season.

Stan, your region is battered by hurricanes now. Don't risk your life for pictures. You can always go later when things are more manageable.

What a great series to see these lenses contrasted. And whenever I see your star trails (and that Escher-esque one was a lulu) I think of James Rosenquist
