debs42_ud ~ Dawn Snow Monster ~

Here I was hoping for a sunrise shot at Mt Baw Baw, having hiked halfway up a ski run in fresh snow before sunrise, when I heard the rumble of this snow grooming machine. I'm sure the poor bloke wasn't expecting to see me up there!

debs42_ud ~ Day's end at Mt Baw Baw ~

If you want to see snow here in Australia, you need to travel to the Alpine region. @tahmekah_ and I had a blast skiing and snowboarding with an awesome group of friends.

debs42_ud ~ Daisy Reflections ~
While out in the garden on a wet day I spotted this reflection. Grateful for a windstill day I got my shot. Next mission? To perfect that drop!
Ps....don't hold your breath. Happy Monday!

  •   shezasphotos @debs42_ud I was out at the weekend trying to get single drop shots and couldn't believe how difficult it was because there was a slight breeze plus so hard for the lens to focus had to go to MF - poor eyesight 20h
  •   debs42_ud @shezasphotos This was a fluke of nature! I tried recreating it in a lightbox and that's much easier once you get the flower in the back in the right spot to reflect but it's hard to get both drop and reflection sharp. And yes, MF is a must! I use LiveView too. Bit kinder on the eyes :) 17h
  •   shezasphotos @debs42_ud wouldn't have thought of using LV! The yes could sure use the help . It's a matter for me of trying to work out distance ! I need to devote some time to it 17h
  •   shezasphotos @debs42_ud thanks for the great tips ! 17h
  •   debs42_ud @shezasphotos The flower that is reflected was only about 10-15 cm behind the drop. The rest depends on the lens you use. 17h
  •   shezasphotos Don't you use macro ? 17h
  •   shezasphotos Actually I have a 14-54 mm lens with a 2-8f stop but for this I'd needs tripod 16h
  •   debs42_ud @shezasphotos Yes a tripod is an essential! I use a 50 mm lens with extension tubes. Still saving for more lenses 16h
