    2nd Joint Shoot, Ssil200 & Dread Pirate

    Another great joint shoot in Adelaide with Ssil2000.

    This time we went for waterfalls and animals at "Waterfall Gully". We arrived at 7am ready for a glorious sunrise that never happened and instead made polite conversation for an hour whilst sitting in the rain

    Eventually the rain let up and we could get the cameras out for a workout. I think Ssil got the better of the shots but I'm pretty happy with my own results.

    As an aside I think Ssil chose his tripod more wisely than me, the 190XProB he has is high enough and sturdy enough for the job. My 055XProB is just a tad heavier and higher than is required. Oh well hindsight is 20/20!

    As before I had a great time (a few good laughs) and learnt a lot from hanging with a fellow photographer. I'd recommend joint shoots to others.

    Here's my best from this morning:

    here are the ones i was happy with today, we were so lucky to find a few koalas 1 of which was close enough to touch!

    thanks DCR, really enjoyed the day and look forward to the next shoot!!!

    #5 's a straight copy of Sergios shot so I can't claim any credit. He picked the composition, apperture etc. His looked heaps better on the LCD, I hope his still looks better on screen or my life won't be worth living

    Edit. Ha we cross posted, now that I can see yours I reckon you got the better on the falls Ssil.

    What about the botanic gardens for the next joint shoot when the weather warms up a bit?

    Rooz if you want to find a wild Koala get out of the zoo, put down the nappies and take a bushwalk, preferably along a creek. Look in the eucalyptus trees for a "patch of grey" amongst the scraggy grey trees. On close inspection that dark patch could be either a birdnest or a koala.

    At least around here in SA there's heaps of koalas. Without aborigines or dingoes anymore eating them they're a real pest to the vegetation. The government can't keep the numbers down because culling koalas would send the wrong message to the tourists.

    Ssil and I walked about a mile in a valley we knew had heaps of koalas and we saw 4 without trying very hard. One was as Ssil allready said at arms reach. They were posing for us, scratching and active. I thinks its koala mating season.
