My Sunday Photo – Tiny Birds

Recently I’ve been making an effort to get out at the crack of dawn capture the sunrise. In many ways it’s easier at the moment, because the sun rises so late (around 7am). In many other ways, it’s extremely difficult. My bed is warm, and I like them warm. Outside is not warm.

While I’m pretty happy with some of the sunrise photos that I have taken, I also realise it’s best to not bore you all with the same subject week after week. So this week My Sunday Photo is focussed some of the wildlife that I recently spotted – some rather cute tiny birds.

Tiny Birds

I’m almost certain that the first bird is a female fair wren. There was a brilliant-blue male hovering around the area, but he was scared off by a garbage truck before I could get my camera out. This tiny female was a bit bolder, and she stuck about for the photo shoot.

I have no idea what these other birds are. They are about the same size as the fairy wren. They look similar too, but definitely not the same. Bonus points to anyone who can identify them for me!

Okay, I said no more boring sunrises, but this last photo was taken well after sunrise, so technically it’s just a landscape photo. I quite like the atmosphere of this shot, especially with the lingering fog around the base of the cliffs. The ocean was pretty angry that morning too, although I’m not sure it really comes across in this photo.

My Sunday Photo – Birds and Flowers

There’s only one thing to do when the early autumn weather is this perfect – head to the park! That’s what we did yesterday, and we had a great time. Hannah likes the play equipment, but what she really enjoys doing is exploring the natural elements of the park. The birds and flowers both caught our attention this week.

My Sunday Photo – Sunrise and Birds

My Sunday Photo for this week is a series of my three favourite photos from my recent excursion to the beach.

For the full story and all of the sunrise photos, you can click here (go on, it’s worth it!). The full series of bird photos is coming soon.

As I explain in the full post, things don’t always go to plan. I had ventured to the beach with a very specific sunrise photo in mind. Unfortunately, a range of factors conspired to make sure that wouldn’t happen. But maybe that was for the best. What I ended up with was three very different experiences and sets of photos.

The first photo is a stitched panorama of a pier that has fallen into disrepair. It is slowly being swallowed by the beach that has slowly grown around it (when I was a child, I visited this spot and the beach was just a thin strip of sand). The colours of the sunrise were muted by the thick cloud, but I didn’t mind as I feel that the dark clouds add to the atmosphere.

The second photo is looking over Botany Bay, towards the industrial area of Port Botany. At this point the sun burst through the clouds. The light changed completely and bathed the whole bay in a gold. I normally dislike the nuclear explosion effect of shooting directly into the rising sun, but in this case I was quite pleased with the results. The heavy cloud and silhouetted features of the bay created an interesting picture.

My final photo is of the birds that I stumbled upon on my way back to the car. It’s a story for another post (coming soon, but this my favourite photo.
