This picture of  water at a rocky outcrop west of  Kings Head in Waitpinga was made just after I acquired a new, full frame  digital camera--a Sony Alpha A7r111. I was trying to see if the camera was an improvement on my earlier digital camera--a Sony NEX-7. Was it worth the money that I paid to go full frame?

A test image if you like to assess the dynamic range from white  to black:  

I was fascinated by the water rushing through the crevice in the rocks. It was low tide and that allowed me to I climb down into the crevice to photograph the rocks and water. This is not something that I would normally do on this outcrop, as it is quite dangerous.   

beyond Kings Head

This  photo  is from the archives and it was made about 4-5 years ago with a little  Olympus XZ-1, a 10 megapixel point and shoot camera. These type of  cameras have been largely displaced by the mobile phone. 

This  granite/quartz  outcrop lies  between  Kings Head  and the base of the Newland Cliffs.


granite study

This granite study  was made on a poodlewalk just before I came down with a severe cold after the Mallee road trip and the wild, stormy winter weather set in.  

I was with Kayla and  Maleko and it was late in the afternoon and it was difficult to access. I am not sure that I would be able to re-photograph it with a film camera on a tripod.
