We’ve been very busy this month so I’ve had less time to be out taking photos. There have been plenty of creatures about that I’ve missed.
Creepy, Crawly, Slimy or Scary
What a title for this week’s challenge, “It IS Easy Being Green”. It’s certainly easy finding a green subject around our place!
We still seem to be having Summer here in South Australia but I noticed the first Wattle flowers opening so this will be my Autumn/Fall shot.
My contribution this week was taken atop Windy Point, looking down over Adelaide and out to the sea.
I had a very cooperative subject for this week’s challenge, a Wanderer Butterfly pupa with lovely glistening gold trim.
I have discovered that even if I have my Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ80 set to iA (intelligent auto) I can still find out the settings used. The shot was taken at f/3.3, 1/320, ISO 80, focal length 4mm. I might be misunderstanding the focal length but it seems to me that must be the depth of field.
I have lightened the photo a bit and also applied some unsharp mask using an old version of Photoshop Elements.
I wish more people would realize Earth is our home, not just a place to plunder.
The Gibb River Road is a 660 km track from Kununurra, near Western Australia’s eastern border with the Northern Territory, to Derby on the west coast. Anyone wanting to be considered a real outback traveller must have “done the Gibb”. After about 100 kms of bone shattering corrugations I decided I couldn’t face another 500kms, I was on holiday and thought that I was supposed to be enjoying myself so for me “the Gibb” is a road taken for just a while!
