Blood Moon July 2018

This is a quick edit from this mornings Blood Moon Eclipse.

I love it it kind of looks like something out of Star Wars

Fingal Heads Causeway

Last night was perfect conditions for some milky way photography. I went down to Fingal heads causeway and captured this image. 

I created this by capturing the foreground just after sunset and then wait for the milky way to appear and then blend the two pano stitches together 

I love this time of the year with the cold clear nights.

Milky Way

This image was created by capturing a panorama stitch of the rocks and water just after sunset using a low iso setting to minimize the noise and get maximum details in the foreground. Then I waited in the same location for it to be fully dark to capture the milky way in all its glory. Shot on a Canon Eos 5d Mark IV with a 14mm 2.8L prime lens.

A Plastic Fraser Island 😢

I just returned from a weeks stay on the beautiful world heritage listed Fraser Island  off the coast of Queensland, Australia. 🇦🇺 

Each time I visit Fraser Island there seems to be more and more rubbish washed up or dumped by visitors to the island. 🌴 

We traveled a few hundred kilometers up and down the beaches and I was saddned to see how much plastic was visible from the car. Everything from bottles, straws, bags, nets, crates, buckets and so much more. 

Some showing signs of being in the ocean for a while before ending up on the beach and others looking like they had just been dumped there. 

I recently rewatched the documentary “A Plastic Ocean” ( directed by Craig Leeson, Brainstorm Media-2017) and it’s a real eye opener, well worth a watch. 

The ‘Leave no Trace Principle’ is something I follow and hope to share with my fellow travelers.

The SS Maheno Shipwreck edit

I had a bit of fun editing an image from a trip to Fraser Island last year. The ship was mirrored down the middle and added shadow. I really have a thing for Black & White images. Jannick

Edited in Capture One Pro 11 and Photoshop. Canon 5d mark III, 24-70 mkIII lens. f11 2.5 seconds exposure.
