Our camera club volunteered to conduct a photography walk in the Royal National Park tomorrow for Seniors Week. We shall be giving guidance on how to use a camera and what to look for when taking photos. It is also hoped that the walk will encourage some of the participants to join our club so everyone benefits from the day.
We went down to the venue today to check it out, plan our strategy and identify where we might be able to point out subjects to illustrate our comments and hopefully have the participants go home with some satisfying photos. With a bit of luck there might also be some wildlife as we experienced today.
For me it was also a liitle bit of a throwback to the day at Lane Cove National Park with Kookaburras and Water Dragons. There were some young Kookaburras which have obviously learned that people sitting at a picnic table are good for a bite to eat and as we walked along a track a Water Dragon skittered down to the river.
Cropped to approx. 1/3 of the frame.
I couldn't resist this shot of a walker in the park framed by the trees with the red top and blue backpack contrasted again the green foliage. The colours, the dappled light, the leading lines of the path and arch of the trees all contribute to focus attention on the walker.
Can't wait till tomorrow when it's "Game On!".
