An amateur, but a long love of photography. A recent move to digital has seen the love ‘blossom’, and a greater enjoyment in the field. I will try most forms of photography, and gain both knowledge and fun out of the experimentation. Using a Nikon D300 and D7000, with a range of lenses, and filters. I hope you enjoy the views as much as I’ve enjoyed taking them.

    Wow, very striking-looking swan, never saw anything like it, and a great shot of it!

  • Thanks Esther. I think they are actually a native of Australia – part of the symbol for Western Australia is the black swan, but they are common in NZ. They can be quite aggressive as well.

    gorgeous – you see some great waterbirds in your “neck of the woods”!

  • thanks heaps. Yes, the birdlife is certainly varied down here! And noisy as well! Waking up to the noise of a flock of sulpher crested cockatoos is definitely an experience – lol.
