Image attached is my first crop of home grown Asparagus. Planted about 6 months ago in Brisbane Australia and after allowing the growth of full shoots and flowers(which are quite pretty) I have been able to harvest 4 spears that have risen above the soil surface.
I took this opportunity to Photograph them as you see in the image as well as stitch a panorama for my Macro Pano Food series.
In the shadow of Lamington National Park we found a little known corner of South East Queensland “Lost World Valley”. 8 images stitched and adjusted in Photoshop CS6. ISO 100mm, 20mm @ f29 for 1/8sec. The magic colours have been only adjusted with vibrancy and saturation.
Last weekend the Family was treated to a day in the Sunshine coast hinterland Queensland. Our guide “Kate Wall” Exceptional local Photographer and friend. Kate softened up a little and showed us one of her secret spot for photographing forests, water, wildlife etc. After having to wear blindfolds and driven along bumpy roads! lol, we arrived at a pristine natural wonder. When I enter one of these forests I am always humbled by their beauty and reminded why humans are here – to protect our home. Attached is one of my images from the day. Thanks Kate I hope I have done the forest proud.
