Pretty in Pink. Olympus E-Pl3

I love this flower: beautiful colour, beautiful detail.

I took this at the Botanic Gardens in Sydney, using the Olympus Zuiko 35MM F3.5 Macro Lens

This has to be one of the cutest road signs in the world. This was taken in Stanley, Tasmania where the penguins roam around the town at night. The are a little bit noisy but so cute you don’t mind at all.

I went back home to Tasmania last weekend, and was lucky enough to have beautiful, calm and sunny weather. Because of the great weather, the wharf at Stanley was full of great reflections.

Took this one with my Olympus E-PL3

Sparkle in the Sunshine. iPhone 4

I’ve posted a lot of pictures taken with my Olympus E-PL3 recently, but I still take pics with my iPhone 4 🙂

This one was taken along the cliffs near Coogee Beach, using Hipstamatic. I cropped out the border and ran it through Snapseed.

The end result was a bit sparkly and different from my other pictures of these grasses. This one made it to the 50’s in Flickr Explore on 25th December – by far my best ever result in Explore (I’ve only had about 7 anyway).

Opera House at Night. Olympus E-PL3

Very pleased with this one, it’s probably one of my best night time shots. It’s got the twinkly lights, the reflection on the water. Yep. Quite pleased 🙂

My new Olympus 35MM Macro Lens arrived on Friday and I found some time to test it out yesterday.

I absolutely love this lens. I’ve always been interested in Macro photography, and this lens lets me get so much closer than anything else I’ve ever used. Not that I’ve used much – this is the most camera equipment I’ve ever owned 🙂

I still have a lot to learn about this lens, particularly with the focusing. I was using the auto setting yesterday, just to get the feel of the camera and lens. I need to branch out into the Aperture zone soon.

Posted this picture to show how close I could get to a flower.
