More photo’s to come..

Posted in Myself on January 31, 2012 by Lloyd

After spending 6 months away from photography to complete Year 12, I’m back and will have more photo’s to post in the coming weeks. In the meantime, I’ve managed to come 4th in the state for the Design – Photography course and won 3 awards at the City of Subiaco photography competition!

Back from Nepal

Posted in Myself with tags on December 29, 2009 by Lloyd

I returned last Thursday from my month long trip to Nepal. It was definetly an eye-opening experience, and seeing third world life all around was quite confronting. My favourite moment was trekking up to Annapurna Base Camp (4210m) at dawn and watching the first rays of sun hit the peak of the worlds 10th highest mountain.

From a photography point of view, I took a lot of photos which I’m sorting through at the moment. I’m hoping to get a some up in the next few days.

Nepal

Posted in Myself with tags on November 22, 2009 by Lloyd

This will be my last post until after Christmas, because on Tuesday, as you may have gathered from my previous posts, I’m off to Nepal for 28 days. I’ll be doing a 12 day trek and helping out in a local school with some other people from my school. I come back Christmas Eve. It should a great, from a non-photographical and a photographical sense.

Thank you to anyone who’s come on my and left a comment or just helped to accumulate hits; it’s a comforting feeling know that there are people out theire who are interested in what you do.

If you’re bored, you can check out some of my earlier work here.

Merry Christmas and all that

Herdsman Lake

Weeping Willows - Herdsman Lake - 2009

I haven’t posted any photos for a while and it’s all kind of old stuff. I was a little depressed with my Blog counter statometer gadget thing staying at 141 hits, but it’s jumped up to 195! Oh the elation.

So as I approached the double century, I decided to freshen things up and take some new shots. Yesterday morning I woke up at 5 o clock and rode my bike down to Herdsman Lake. Being holidays and such, my usual sleeping hours were something like 12am – 10am, so waking up at 5 was something a bit different.

It wasn’t really very cold and I wasn’t expecting much, just perhaps a nice sunrise and some calm lakes. Without wanting to sound to cliched, it was absolutely stunning. The roads had no cars and as I rode up into the park where the lake was, the whole ground was covered in a thin veil of fog. Very mystical…

There were no people about, but there were two dogs which were behind a fence of a nearby property that kept barking at me whenever I was visible, so I wasn’t allowed around that side of the lake. But I rode around for an hour or so and took a few snaps on my handy Canon Powershot 530 and my little Kathmandu compact travel tripod. Only the best for me.

The colours also were nothing like what I’ve seen before. You wouldn’t believe it, but I had to dull the colours in an attempt to make this picture look more realistic. The original looked like a 4 year old’s first attempt at Photoshop after just discovering the Hue/Saturation button.
