An image from the Shangri La (and a how to video) I took this during my stay at the Shangri La in Sydney. This is one image with the Nikon D800, 36mp is real handy when you want to create a panoramic photo from just one image. I decided to make a quick video (and […]

We Shall Remember Them

Anzac Day 2013 ANZAC Day is probably Australia’s most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.  ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
