Rolling, Swirling, and Dancing

I had an opportunity to take a short photography time at Watson’s Bay, where I hadn’t been for ages. Looking ahead ocean from The Gap point was fabulous as always. I took some photographs of the bottom of the cliff and this is one of them. Watching water flow never got me bored as always.Continue reading “Rolling, Swirling, and Dancing”

These are a pair of Komainu (the mythical) guard dogs (or lion-dog) watching Itsukushima Shrine, as I snapped over a year ago.

Townhall in the morning

This was photographed sometime ago on one weekend morning. I like the ambient I felt there; quiet and surrounded in peace, which I would not see on weekday mornings. Morning light made it clock tower and other buildings behind it outstanding in the scene. QVB was against the light but still blurry shone by theContinue reading “Townhall in the morning”

This is myContinue reading “Out of water”

Roughly 20~25 minutes after the moon rise, top of Opera House roof appeared to be softly bright, then finally the full moon rose behind the roof.

Waterfall at Milford

When the cruise boat I was aboard approached to the biggest waterfall at there, I was quite excited and clicked shutters many times, as I remember. The flow of exuberant amount of water produced beautiful lines leading down to the bottom. I was just keen to capture them while releasing shutters. I made one ofContinue reading “Waterfall at Milford”
