Eco-Drive

A macro shot of my new wrist watch. I used a 70-200L lens coupled with extension tubes to get this close-up shot. The detail is incredible with this setup.

I wanted to use Microsoft’s Seadragon/Deep Zoom to show this in all its glorious detail, but they just changed their server to show only albums, not the single photos. 🙁 You can see this photo (and others) in my DeepZoomPix album here

Sandballs

Sandballs

These balls of sand are made by little crabs on the beach at Cape Tribulation in Australia.  These tiny little crabs (maybe half an inch big) would roll out these balls of sand from the tunnels they were digging.  They made some interesting patterns, almost like fireworks in the sand when viewed from a few feet away.

I waited for a minute or two for a crab to pop out of the hole, but he never came out.  But he’s in there somewhere…

I thought the close-up of the hole and sandballs made an interesting macro-landscape of sorts.

Butterfly on Rock

A small butterfly takes a rest on a rock at Josephine falls in Australia.  This little guy was being quite cooperative as it took me quite a few shots to get the focus, composition and exposure right.
