On an cold and wet day I decided to go through my huge archive of transparencies and I came across this one taken about 6 years ago. When looking at the image it is funny how you are taken back to that exact moment. So I scanned the shot on my Imacon 343 scanner and when viewing the shot in Photoshop memories of the morning I took it started to come back to me. I recalled shooting in the other direction waiting for the sun to come up when I heard a sound behind me. I was initially taken by suprise when I turned and saw this curious fellow standing right behind me. I took one shot before he realised I was actually quite boring and he waddled off.
The shot to the right is taken on my Canon on a recent trip to Terrigal Beach on the Central Coast and the shot below is the sunrise shot I took that day after my feathered visitor left as the sun breached the horizon.
The shot below was taken on my Fuji G617 camera on Velvia 50 slide film. Wish I could remember the settings but it is a while ago now though I usually shoot at f16 and this looks like a 1/4 or 1/2 sec exposure.
