Photographically Inspired...

Being a random post that deviates from my typical blog articles, just for fun.

Having been duly inspired by my amazing and talented photographer/blogging friend, Lisa, a few weeks ago I decided to grab our Canon camera and dash out into the paddock and see if I couldn't grab some nice shots of a spectacular sunset.

I love reflections, especially in large bodies of water, such as sunrises and sunsets glinting off a lake. So I thought I would try my hand at getting a nice photo from different angles across our own small pond. I was rather pleased with how a few of them turned out, and since this blog has not seen much of my photographic endeavors (and yes, there have been many, believe me) I thought it might be high time I shared some of my efforts. 

Let me know what you think!


Our leaky rowboat turned out to be beached, so I made use of it.


I had fun throwing feathers in the water and watching them blow to the other side.

  2. These are stunning. So stunning, Aussie!

    By the way, I adore the new blog design! :D Haven't actually been on the site in a while, due to my schedule, so I've just been reading your blog feed in my e-mail. Apparently I missed out on the aesthetic changes whilst doing that. :P

  7. Thanks Jonathan, though I could argue on the point of being a good photographer; rather a hack with a camera. ;)

  10. These are beautiful photos, Bush Maid! Really, aren't we so blessed to be living in such a gloriously beautiful country? I know I am! You are a really talented photographer too though - what camera do you use? I love sunsets - they so remind me of God's faithfulness and love for us. Great is Thy faithfulness!

    Hmm, maybe you need to teach me a trick or two with taking pictures. I have my own photography blog, but I am quite the aspiring beginner still :) The Lord Jesus bless you, dear sister!

  11. Thankyou so much for your comment, Joy! I know - our countryside in Australia is some of the most beautiful in the world. I'm often amazed and inspired by the incredible workmanship of God's hand around me.

    I'm flattered you think me a good photographer, but I really am not much more than a hobbyist at it. The trick is often %80 the camera. I use a Canon EOS 450D. I love it especially for its manual focus, so I can get shots in the foreground such as the grass and boat photos in this post. :) Basically the best tip I can give you is to try everything, whether by position or different camera settings and see what works! That's all I did. :D
