Paluma

Recommended Posts

Part of my recent Townsville trip involved a day out to Paluma, an area of tropical rainforest.

Unfortunately the view from the various lookouts were non-existent, but there were a number of picturesque waterfalls on the lower slopes that were also popular for swimming.

Yes, they were beautiful, but unfortunately the waterfall in the final picture was heavily graffitied.  It got much worse just to the right of the frame.  I don't understand peoples urge to leave their mark on such places.

      This is from a couple of weeks ago.  The poor little thing was getting mobbed by a flock of seagulls and finally settled on the wall close to me. I must have seemed less threatening than the gulls.

      A few from a recent trip to Sydney.
       

      Landmarks - all in one picture!
       

      & @ night 
       

      View from small park further back - a nice little pocket of green and peacefulness among the city bustle.
       

      Through the blinds - as we sat down for dinner, the setting sun was visible through the blinds and created a nice painterly image.
       
      It was a bit of a challenging trip with quite a bit of disruption on the way up - my first flight was cancelled before I even set out to the airport, the replacement got as far as Canberra before circling for about 90 minutes then returning to Melbourne and after a bit of waiting again to get rebooked I got home around 11pm before the third flight at 7am on Saturday morning eventually got me there.

      This morning I found a bit of time and managed to get back to a location overlooking the Melbourne skyline to try and recreate some shots I took a little of 8 years ago.  The comparisons are interesting both in the changes in the cityscape and in the cameras available to me.
       
      This was the original shot I wanted to recreate - a crop from a 6Mpixel image taken with a Nikon D50 and 18-55

      And the newer image - a slight crop of a 24Mpixel image taken with a Fuji X-E3 and 18-55.

      On a recent Australia Day outing, I had a chance to give the Fuji 55-200 a bit of a workout with the various sea birds along the beach.
       

      Hooded Plovers which often result in sand dunes along our coast being off limits due to their ground level nesting.
       

      Pacific Gull  - these are big, and whilst I have cropped this a bit, the wingtips just dip out of the frame - the following frame with the wings in the upper position had the tips just out of the top too!
       

      Silver Gulls these are the most common along our coast and seemed to have found something interesting in the top of the bush as they were frequently gliding in, landing and then taking off again.
