Images of Canberra – Red sky over Civic

johnboy 13 December 2006 28

Danman has been out and about over the weekend with his tripod and given us a week’s worth of images.

He asked for the following words to accompany this one:

While the pre apocalyptic city jumped to its own heartbeat – all it has now is memories.
If you stand quietly you can hear the murmurs – the faint recollection of happier times.
If you listen hard, every picture has its own story to tell.

Not often you see a photo that’s like you are involved, as if being there.

After 2003 I had hoped never to have to witness more bushfire sunsets over Canberra 🙁

Hope those poor bastards in Vic and Tas get through okay – at least all the smoke we see here is from a state forest, not a settlement.

Oh I read it, doesn’t mean I remember it.

Red sky at night,
fishermans delight.
Red sky at day,
Stanhope and co run away….

I must have taught my pop how to send a text message about 100 times when he first got a mobile

bah italics overload.

best thing anyone can do when they get a new piece of technology is read the manual front to back at least twice.

Mrs Danman is forever asking me how to use her camera.

Not quite The Potato Factory – but about the same size.

ooooh spooky

RandomGit RandomGit 2:20 pm 13 Dec 06

Oh, all technical, I wouldn’t even know where to start, let alone where I’ve put the manual.

I knew i should have gotten it in black and not silver 🙂

Too late for the 2007 calendar?

Canberra is so crying out to be a sci fi movie.

RG get a tripod – set that puppy on f2.8 at 36mm iso 100 – open the shutter for 8 seconds and see what happens.

Unfortunately 8 seconds is max – True slr’s meter up to 30 seconds – but also have a bulb setting – that means one press to open the shutter – press again to close – can be as short or as long as you like (depending on battery life etc). 35mm mechanical cameras (SLR’s) can go for hours

Yep, reread and saw it.

I wonder what I could get out of my FZ-5…..

Danman Danman 1:31 pm 13 Dec 06

Randomgit – read my post up from this.
Also – camera was white balanced for flouro so maybe this helped – but a lot of my shots that nite had the apocalyptic red sky – and no tall were white balanced to flouro – most were on auto and ambient light was used.

I see it now *shrug* effing firefox.

Frikking top shot. Did you filter it?

Al Al 12:57 pm 13 Dec 06

Great shot – pity about that scuzzy looking willow weed though…

Danman Danman 12:30 pm 13 Dec 06

oh and D70 focussed at 17mm f5.6 for 30 seconds for those tech heads.
