03 Jun

Armed with our 100mm f2.8L macro lens (150mm equiv. with the 7D) we headed out to our local beach and shot some different grades of sand up nice and close. Even we were surprised by the beauty to be found in the tiny particles. Check them out! We’ve done our best to get corner-corner sharpness, so you at home have the greatest flexibility in how you treat the images in your design projects.

Image of the Day: Saltwater Panorama


10 Jun

This ultra-wide panorama is an amalgamation of about 15 photographs taken at Saltwater beach, near Taree on the NSW mid-north coast, Australia.

Saltwater is an ever-changing seascape, as the ocean molds the sand back to its own design. One visit you’ll come and find the lagoon closed off to the ocean and see no rocks. At other times, like you see here, the rocks are exposed and the lagoon meets up with the ocean – flushing out the lagoon.

It’s a truly beautiful place and We definitely recommend visiting if you’re driving through. Situated about 2 hours north of Newcastle or 3.5 hours north of Sydney – it’s a great place to be.
