Trip to Canola Fields - Addicted To That Yellow

Recently I had a trip to Cowra Shire located in Central NSW, 310km drive due west from Sydney, which is famous for its beautiful canola fields. It was my first visit to the town and that yellow colour shown in front of my eyes was just mesmerizing. So here we go.

This trip was organised by the club, Sydney Korean Photographic Society and I had a chance to learn a lot from many talented landscape photographers. Wonderful time I had and it really made me want to buy SUV :) Although I love my poor Toyota Corolla, but mate, you are just not good enough for the country town.

  1. such a pretty sight and captured beautifully! I would love to visit Cowra and the canola fields there as well. May I ask how did you find them? Is there a particular address/name to pin point the fields on the map?
    Thanks so much in advance =)

    1. Thanks Linh. I don't really have much information as I was just following the experienced group. However, checking out Cowra information centre would be good, http://www.cowratourism.com.au/. Especially check the good dates to visit when the canola flowers are fully blooming for the best shots.

Post Processing

Although I enjoy photography as an escape from the daily grind, I can't fully distance myself from being a photographic geek when it comes to cameras and gears. I have subscribed numerous camera review channels on YouTube and can spend hours reading/watching about various old and new cameras. Especially, most of the brand new digital cameras, they tend to show off their amazing new sensor, super fast shutter speed, and high ISO capabilities resulting in amazing low light performances ... then, I start to scratch my head thinking that post-processing I do nowadays is done to degrade the quality of photo to have a so-called 'vintage film look'.

The Funny thing is that I still love working with RAW files to start with, and the first processing I do is always de-noising an image. Even when I'm almost certainly sure that I'm heading for a coarsely grained result, somehow I like to start with a picture with least amount of noise. It's just like preparing a white canv…

Shark Fishing

I have completely forgotten about these photos. They were taken from Solomon Island last year. I was meant to post, but my laziness caught me up. Eventually, I found them again while organising my Lightroom library.

So, this was on the 2nd day at the Nugu Resort, Solomon Islands. Some new tourists arrived on that day, and they went out for evening fishing. According to them, they caught 3 king fishes and 1 shark at the same spot, and it was their first time fishing on the sea. What a first-time luck!


I had never seen a shark this close before. The skin was super smooth, and it felt like a scuba diving suit.

This man who was a local driver of the fishing boat and he was called to help clean the shark. Although the photo looks rather intimidating, he didn't know what to do in the beginning as he never cleaned a shark before.

So this is the guy who caught the shark. It took some time for them to get the bait hook out of shark's mouth.

Surfer

One thing I always wanted to do well is a water sport which I can't do at all. Watching people enjoying themselves on the continuous waves from the ocean makes me smile and slightly jealous at the same time.
