As an Australian, I have only seen Dingos (Native Australian Dog) in their natural habitat maybe 7 or 8 times throughout my life. On this occasion, we spotted two together but the lead Dingo wasn’t sticking around to pose for a photo. I did try to photograph from inside the car however wasn’t having much luck so I very quietly and slowly got out the car, switched lenses and using the bonnet (hood) as a stable platform squeezed off a few frames. Is it perfect, no it’s not but both my wife and I feel pretty fortunate to see not one but two in their natural habitat.
There are plenty of Australians that have only seen a dingo, and other native Australian animals in a zoo! and to be honest, it’s probably the safest place to see them.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
I’m not sure what it is but there is something special about Panoramas that if done right make a pretty good photo. Maybe it’s because there is so much detail in them or that they have managed to capture a scene that can’t be captured without photographing a panorama or maybe the average person thinks that there is something special that goes into photographing them.
It was while were travelling through the outback of Australia that I realised that the Sony A7 has the ability to take a panorama image and I couldn’t contain my excitement. I took quite a few panoramas along the way with the idea to printing a few to hang when we got home. I was excited because I’ve never stitched an image together using image software before so I thought that having the panorama ability was pretty cool but as it turned out I was going to be sadly disappointed. It wasn’t until download that realisation smacked me pretty hard that the image out of camera would be saved as a JPEG not in RAW format to the memory card as I had hoped. So there goes the ability to make any real adjustments.
I did try and make some adjustments to this image and I think it’s turned out ok but in future I think that I’ll learn how to stitch the images together to get a better result. What do you think?
There is more than a considerable amount of roadworks being undertaken around home at the moment which could only provide that opportunity to photograph some of the plant equipment that is parked around the area. I found this scraper sleeping quietly in the grassy field.
