Dolphins off King Edward Park

With the truck still at the car dealership getting its gearbox fixed our weekend plans had taken an unexpected turn, so we headed into King Edward Park, which is known for one of the best views in the city and also for its whale and dolphin watching vantage point.

The whales seem to be a bit quieter this year, or maybe we just haven’t had the same amount of time to stare out into the blue abyss hoping to catch a glimpse of these magnificent creatures cruising their way north for warmer waters.

Almost as soon as we pulled up we spotted a pod of dolphins playing in the waves. I grabbed my camera and shot off a few frames, thinking they would disappear pretty quickly.

Whilst we were fixed on the dolphins we heard a plane, which isn’t that unusual as the park is on the flight path for the airport but this wasn’t a commercial jet – it was Matt Hall – famous Red Bull Racer. The Care flight chopper also decided to join in the fun.

The dolphins were still frolicking up and down the beach so i managed to get a few more shots and some video footage.

They were having so much fin chasing the waves, jumping and diving out the back of them.

We were sorry to see them finally swim off about an hour later.

This little guy had been sitting on the telegraph pole keeping an eye on us for a while.

It’s possible he was watching for food, not us LOL

As the wind started to pick up, and the end of sunlight for the day was approaching we headed for home only to be greeted by these two beauties outside the front door.

Until next time, thanks for stopping by.

Hanger Sunrise

One of the fabulous sundancers connected us up with the owners of Hunter Valley Vintage Wings so that we would be able to shoot a sunrise from the hanger and also pictures of the planes.

The sunrise was pretty special that morning and we even managed to get a balloon ride take off and cross in front of us as we were shooting the sunrise.

There is something about these old warbirds that draw you in. I’ve grown up around planes and have always had a thing for them but these ‘birds along with fighter jets really get my interest.

Update – I just found out that my two pics above were selected to go on their new tourist brochure, im really stoked that they are able to use the pictures and everyone that sees their brochure will see my photos. Its a really wonderful feeling 🙂
