I just got back from a 3 day visit to Hpa An, Myanmar which is located about a 4 hour drive from Rangoon towards the Thai border. Myanmar is quite a popular destination for photographers but most people tend to go to Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake. It is a shame because there are some beautiful places in other parts of the country.
This first photo was taken in the kitchen of a local monastery.
This one after a long walk through the caves at Sadan
This is Kyaut Ka Latt located in a lake just outside Hpa An
These are some of the Kyone Htaw Waterfall located a little further south in Karen held territory.
Also from the waterfalls...
This was at a Hpa An Pagoda. The kids are looking at a photo I gave them taken with a Fuji Instax
And this was taken on the drive back to Yangon
I will post another set later...
Spent a nice few days out on Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour with the better half earlier this week. Fabulous place to explore and learn the history of the island from a very harsh penal colony, to girls reformatory then finally a glorious history of ship repairs and building. Remnants from all eras still remain. For me the machine shops had me mesmerised. I would have loved to have seen this place in action a the height of the ship building era.

The night skies at Piermont on the East Coast of Tasmania Australia this week were stunning. A full moon, and clear skies - cold with a little mist around made for some lovely shots - if not with the best clarity of the stars.
All taken with the Sony A7S & Vario Tessar 16 - 35mm - I generally start with 25 seconds, ISO 3200, f4 @ 16mm and vary from there with ISO first and aperure after that.

I took these pictures at night in Nantong, China (I work in China by a contract) with my Sony A7 and FE 55 1.8 CZ lens. Hope you'll enjoy some of the pictures.
