Augusta Rocks…….

Posted by mervfrench on March 13, 2010

…. yes it probably does on a Saturday night in summer , but I haven’t been there when its going off.  Augusta’s a great little place for a few days camping and there’s plenty to see if you look around.

This shot is out by the water wheel taken middle of the day with the 10 stop filter.

Got all Day Mate …….

Posted by mervfrench on March 11, 2010

I was just clearing up a hard drive and this one caught my eye.  I took this in 2005 with  a Canon G5 , my first digital camera and quite a camera in its day. It was shot while having a morning walk along the beach outside the Manderlay  Park in Busselton. These guy’s  really were prominent as they were the only ones on the beach for miles, where else in the world would you see that !!

I remember watching these guys for a while and they just stood there fishing and never said a word to each other.   I suppose I should have got a model release signed.

Better Photography Awards.

Posted by mervfrench on March 5, 2010

This was one of my entries in the recent Better Photography Awards. I was pleased to get a silver award for it with 81/ 100.

I also received one other silver and two bronze awards with my four entries.

What does it all mean.  Well nothing really ,  except they  placed ahead of a lot of others so I was pleased with that, but I was not in the top 50.

In all there were 945 entries  with 645 bronze awards 242 silver awards and 0 gold awards. No gold awards was a bit of a surprise I thought.

This is a shot of the Harvey Winery just north of the town on the SW Hwy.

There were some very strong entries in there that deserved their place.

See the winners  here .

This was taking up space on my desktop so I put it here out of the way  🙂

I was just playing around in ACR to get a HDR effect of some kind … a work in progress.

Every Picture Tells a Story …. ( Rod Stewart 1971 )

Posted by mervfrench on March 1, 2010

A classic album released before probably most of you were born ( 1971). Anyway it has nothing to do with this image.

I was browsing thru a hard drive of old shots and this grabbed my eye . Taken a few years ago on a trip to Cape York  this is on  highway 1 , yes highway  number 1, in the gulf country between Booraloola and Mataranka somewhere near Hells Gate roadhouse in the NT.

And the sign is dead right it was exactly that !!!!!
