I can't draw or paint to save my life, so photography it is. I'm self taught and my current weapon of choice is a Canon 5D. I'm slowly teaching myself Photoshop as well, with a view to branching into more "arty" shots.

This past Christmas / New Year I was fortunate enough to spend almost a month in Western Australia and returned home with around 17Gb of images to sort, cull, crop etc. As I work my way through them I'll post anything decent. Here are a few quick images to start with (:

Woow! Beautiful! I'd really like to see some more :) I'm so jealous! D: such a gorgeous place.. :P My drawing and artsy skills aren't really the best too and I can't seem to improve myself so I too have been doing a bit photography. Nice pictures on your flickr too! ^^

I'll post this now that I can do so without crying (hopefully).

Meet Oggie.

She was a very special part of my sisters family for too short a time. Hearts were broken and tears were shed on both sides of the country when a tragic accident took her.

I know. I've got my obsessive pants on at the moment and have been watching the series through, making videos, collecting wallpapers...

A very unfortunate conglomeration of events ended Farscape much too soon.

Ok, these ones are about four years old and very hastily scanned (from my pre-digital days).

I visited my parents this weekend for Fathers Day and hit up their gardens for some photos.

Patience, good luck and a fast AF scored me this picture:

Honeybees are awesome!  That's a really amazing shot.   Worthy of National Geographic or another nature magazine.

Thank you :o

Macro photography is a whole new world. I'm not a bug person by any stretch of the imagination (though I am an 'avoid it / let n let live' person not an 'omg kill it!' person) but it is utterly captivating seeing all the little details in a photo that the naked eye just can't capture.

I've even been photographing little spiders, provided they appear to be the placid, non-jumping kind.

Don't look if you don't like spiders...

Oo very nice photos, you are lucky to meet the cheetahs, the last time I went there they were still in hiding :( I was so sad. I was even more disappointed that they didn't have any platypus or quolls, especially since they are calling themselves an Australian zoo, I was sad to find they had more imported animals than Australian animals :( The Sydney Zoo had more Aussie animals.

Dang, I just saw the Farscape video, and it makes me sad how weird that show got and made me stop watching. It was so great for so long.

The macro photography you've done is beautiful, it's like a feast for my eyes. I hope there will be lots more in the future.

I've never seen this thread so sorry for the late responses here!

Beautiful zoo pics!    The tortoise and the owl are my favorites, they made me grin  :)   Those are going to end up as memes if you're not careful.  

The camera-shy echinda picture is not showing up anymore, which I thought was a rather funny irony.

Thanks for posting these!

So... I created a dA account a few weeks back. For a reason that now escapes me...

Figured I might as well use it :D

Those are some really great pictures. Hope you keep it up! Whenever I see these kinds of photos my mind immediately goes into photo manipulation mode. Too much PS i suppose...

pretty cool stuff, your macros are really nice! I envy your full frame kit XD
I'm more into artsy photography, but if you're interested, here's a shameless plug of my flickr acc ;)
