An early morning encounter

Of course no trip to Australia is complete without an encounter with a kangaroo and a koala. For lack of time, my own encounter was in an enclosed environment at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane. See all of those and more here.
Last Saturday I took a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. Unfortunately, beginner divers, such as myself, were not allowed to carry cameras underwater. Anyhow, it was one of the coolest things I have ever seen. Let's hope it stays that way.
Sunday I went for a short trip to the Green Island. Some more images are here.

I have been building a very basic home studio. Equipment:
Paramount hotshoe to miniphone cord (Speedlite on hotshoe)
Elinchom Skyport Universal Trigger Set (transmitter on camera hotshoe and receiver plugged to Paramount cord).
Stand with white translucent umbrella.
Here is what it looks like so far:
And a still composition "Man and Woman" (full size image here).

It's often the case that after snapping away on my camera around Denver, I will get a close look at the images weeks after and get this "hey, what is this?" type of feeling. Typical case, the image below. It's not a ghost walking the streets of Denver, it's just Fanni with a commuter rail on the background.
More photos from that walk on a cold Denver afternoon are here.

A couple weeks ago I took a trip trip to Bosque del Apache ("woods of the Apache") national wildlife refuge near Socorro, New Mexico. Its lakes are the wintering grounds of thousands of birds, mostly ducks, snow geese and sandhill cranes.
The sight and sound of the birds flying in in the evening to spend the night at the lakes is spectacular. In the morning, slightly after sunrise, all the snow geese gathered at one side of the lake from where they all took off as one huge flock.
A selection of more photographs from that trip is on flickr.
