I decide to start 2011 off on the right foot and that meant one thing. A photography adventure! In my opinion there is simply nothing better than fantastic photography fun with a friend (try saying that 5 times fast!).
So even though I wasn't feeling 100% I met up with a lovely friend and headed out to the country to take some lovely pictures. It was raining pretty much all day which made getting a decent shot a bit of an achievement. Just two young women trying to wrangled a umbrella in one hand and an SLR in the other.
I find it to be simply wonderful to have a friend who enjoys photography as much as I do. It's nice to get her input in how best to capture a specific shot. We drove all the way to Somerset Dam (a large water catchment of the Brisbane region) with a few stops along the way. Here's some more of the photos I managed to capture while gallivanting around the countryside:
This next photo is of the Somerset Dam wall. Because of all the rain in the region recently the dam is the fullest it has been in a while and they have been periodically releasing water from the spillway. I wanted to try and capture it but when I got there it was only releasing a spout of water from the bottom. It still looked pretty cool though.
I'm really happy with the shots I managed to get. A day and photography adventure well spent in my opinion. Until my next post I hope your 2011 is starting off great!
