Centennial Park in autumn

 on 

Together with my son we went to Centennial Park to take some photographs. The weather was rather questionable with showers and rather cloudy sky, but from time to time there was enough sunlight to get quite decent photographs. Centennial Park in autumn is very picturesque. It also very busy, with lots of people coming here for picnic, run or to cycle. We have settled for a walk trying to fond interesting and colourful scenes to photograph.

I have found a nice setting with trees and leaves, which I thought would make a nice landscape. However, no matter how long we waited there was someone always in the frame. So, I have switched my tactic and incorporated the people into the photograph. The lonely man sitting on a park bench and a young redhead in background catching some warmth from the sun nicely complemented this autumn scene.

The Haven, Terrigal

 on 

Just a simple landscape or rather seascape photograph from last weekend. Shooting into the sun and reflection of sun light of the water under a cloudy sky. The light was deliberately measured for the reflection, thus making everything around much darker than it really was, creating dark silhouettes of the boats at the Haven.
