…or this guy is on duty patrolling the coastline, perhaps..
This photo is not great because the angle that I caught him stayed at the edge of the cliff, also caught the rock platform in straight line, and it made the his presence assimilated in background. Oh well, I could not help it as there was a fence laid between us and I concluded that I could not train my lens in better position than this.
Also, often my daydreaming head get a mini story in the head, when I catch non-human lives with my eye-balls. Earlier the day before I caught this dragon, I saw the three seagulls at the local beach, and I instantly came up the idea to put them the role as Lifeguard ( please also in here ). They were charmers driving me nuts developing trifle short stories in the head (and I certainly love doing that ;-)).
Thank you for WordPress friends for sharing your views to the photo of the dragon!
I took back to the image and gave it try a bit more edit, which turned to this.
I am happy with this in hue, contrast, and composition. 🙂
On my walking up to and around Barrenjoey Lighthouse, I bumped into this little cute guy.
This is another type to Water Dragons I see near beaches nearby Sydney (i.e. Bondi beach, Manly beach etc).
On the day, I did not have a telephoto lens with me so I had to get closer to it physically.
I made my every step as the best as I could in subtle manner. I was about to make one more step closer, then this guy turned back and hid under a big rock, and peeked out of the other side of the rock. The guy stayed still until I begun to make a new step to get closer to it again. The guy stayed still as if it watched me what I do next.
….Was I played by this guy…?
By the way, I looked up internet to find which breed this guy belongs to, but its not success.
I should have asked the guy what name / breed it is as shaking hand to greet, before I attempted to photograph… 😉
