Yosemite in Autumn (Fall)

Yosemite doesn't have a massive amount of colour in Autumn, but that is still a fair bit by Australian standards. We took a trip up to and around Yosemite with a couple of friends last week and had a good time.

In Autumn the waterfalls aren't running (well, some are trickling, but most aren't running) which doesn't make for great waterfall shots, but still-water shots turn out quite nice.
Sunset is allways a good time for photography. In this case we are shooting from Glacier Point toward Half Dome, a massive rock which is a full day climb from the valley floor.
On the sunday we ventured towards mono lake and saw the "other side" of Yosemite Valley.

You can see our photos from the weekend at
We hope you enjoy the photos!

Many moons and no blogging

It has been a few months now since we last blogged. Margaret has found herself a job at advertising .com which has kept us both very busy... as it meant that we could no longer do our weekly tasks during the week.

Work is going well for both of us... definitely keeping us busy. Until last weekend (Our Autumn trip to Yosemite - photos to follow) we really haven't been getting out much over summer.

The shot to the left is a recent full-moon shot I took handheld with my 300mm lens and cropped the result. Posted by Picasa

June in Pittsburgh

In late June I (Andrew) headed to Pittsburgh for a Machine Learning conference (the same conference I presented a paper at a few years back). I had a good time, although it was my first experience of rain for 3 months.

The photograph here is quite a typical Pittsburgh shot... where the two rivers meet to form one river. Posted by Picasa
