Hello guys! Finally got a chance to process a few images from the Great Ocean Road in Australia. This famous coast road takes you through incredible beaches, sleepy villages and wild headlands. Well worth a trip, but be prepared for a long drive. There are a few cool light houses along the way, we stopped at one and saw the perfectly preserved light keepers cottage. Hope you enjoy!
Some 240km of nice roads, the Great Ocean Road is a heritage listed stretch in south eastern Victoria. The area is good for swimming, hiking, visiting villages, sight seeing and of course photography. On this occasion, I did not have the opportunity to use landscape filters, to create long exposure images.. The problems of going with family! :P. However, if you are into landscape photography, this is probably one of the best places in Australia in my opinion.

Its another cold, sleety Sunday morning in Bavaria. Winter is slowly coming to an end, and its about time, I’ve had enough of 2 degrees and sleet. Starting to look forward to summer, or at least Spring. Actually, I found some un-processed photos from Australia with sun and surf which might have brought about the negativity! So here are a few photos from Brighton Beach in Victoria to help get everyone into the mood for summer!
Brighton Beach is close to Melbourne, and is famous for its many colourful little beach shacks. There are better beaches in the world, but perhaps none so colourful! I used the Breakthrough X4 polariser, 24mm 1.4 Art and Samyang 12mm 2.8 Fish-eye here. Hope you enjoy!!

At dawn yesterday, the 25th of April 2015, it was exactly 100 years ago, that the allies made the assault up the cliffs at Gallipoli. Anzac Day is remembered by Australia and New Zealand every year, as the first significant battle the two nations endured major losses in.
Ultimately, the campaign at Gallipoli was a military disaster, failing to knock out the Ottoman Empire from World War I. The troops suffered fierce resistance for 8 months, and finally were evacuated.
This year’s ceremony was nearly a wash out. It rained all day, my camera was drenched. It was a real disadvantage to be shooting with prime lenses, as I was reluctant to change lenses in the pouring rain.
Still, I managed to get a few shots from the morning. I used my new 24mm 1.4 Art lens, as I was keen to try it out. Hope you enjoy;

Look what I found!
Its the 24mm f1.4 Art lens! A highly awaited lens, and so far I’m one of the lucky few to get one. Sigma is struggling to keep up with demand, and many shops run out as soon as they arrive. I got this from Digidirect in Melbourne, they only had two left, and had sold six in two days.
This lens is great for my style of photography, and I look forward to testing it more! A great lens for travel photography.
I hope to complete a full review of the lens soon, once I test it thoroughly. For now though, it feels much like the other Art lenses, which Sigma have released. So far the AF seems pretty good at default settings.
Anyways, more to come.
Here are a few quick snaps from yesterday, all wide open at f1.4:
