Nestled in Darling Harbour hidden amongst towering high rises is the calm oasis of the Chinese Garden of Friendship. Walking around the beautifully landscaped paths, waterfalls and lake you feel a million miles away from the city. The kids loved exploring - and it only costs $6 to enter (kids under 5 are free) #sydney#newsouthwales#visitsydney#darlingharbour#chinesegarden

Australia is so beautiful 💙 we’re lucky to call this country home.
Can you guess what type of lens was used for this shot? Wide, telephoto, macro, tilt shift, fish eye etc? Scroll down to see answer! .
Well it was a 100mm 2.8 macro lens! Composition becomes a real challenge due to the narrow field of view. I shoot this at F16 but the foreground is a bit soft for me. Perhaps F22 or 32 would have made the foreground a bit sharper. Anyways it was a fun exercise. Have you ever tried using macro for landscapes?
Last Tuesday afternoon I experienced something I have never tried before - Storm Chasing.
I headed down to Lady Macquarie's Chair with @sam.ison.photos, @kalanrobb, @andrew_tiddy and @_danieltran_ as we saw an incoming storm from the west.
We were hoping to capture some lightning and an awesome cloud shelf as it crossed over the city.
I had one of those moments where I thought what on earth am I doing as this cloud shelf passed straight over us. It was one of the toughest conditions I have shot in. There was rain, extreme wind, while there I was fighting with my umbrella, trying to keep my camera dry and trying to capture the storm.
My umbrella popped inside out twice, the wind and rain were hurling towards me and I had to keep wiping my lens as it was getting covered with water drops....it basically wasn't much fun. I actually thought I had missed the best part of the storm cell as I was battling with my umbrella so much.
But as it happens, when reviewing my shots, I actually captured a couple of frames of the best part of the storm. I couldn't believe it, because at the time it just felt like a massive blur as I was trying to survive the intensity of mother nature.
So here you have it, an incredible shot of an incredible, crazy experience.
