Really happy with my results in the Australia's Top Emerging Photographers Awards. There were a lot of great works and the photographers were incredible so for my first year out I have to be happy. Thanks to Roz and Tilly for my 'Top 40' place! SEE ALL
There is something about waterfalls and all that surrounds them that centers everything and makes all in the world seem right. Took a wet and slippery walk down to these and spent a few hours in paradise.
It doesn't matter how many times I visit Bouddi National Park it never ceases to amaze. We spend ages imagining what created such diverse structures. I have spent hours crawling around them and doubtless will spend many more. These are few of those formations.
Got my new camera, all excited I did the unheard of and got up at sparrows .... Got down to the beach and it looked like a perfect day, so trekked down to MY favorite spot and set up for MY perfect sunrise shot. Just as I
This gloomy scene was the first shot of my day, and seemed to sum up the way way the day would shape up for me. Shooting from some rocks my camera fell off the tripod, clattered down the rocks and into the ocean, jumped in to retrieve
We were all set to do the Garrakool track this morning, up at 6am and ready to go ... rain! The track is far too slippery in the wet so we headed off to Norah Heads instead, a gloomy day but I am happy with the shots.
Another sunny day and time spent amongst my favorite boulders. The beaches are still full of sea foam and storm debris. The waves are still much larger than usual, they normally don't break over these boulders, today they were.
ON 5129 Edit ON 5124 Edit Today after weeks of rain we saw sunshine. These two mangrove trees in the Avoca lagoon had a sunny disposition, albeit their roots are exposed ... the lagoon has been drained to avoid local flooding.
I am having to revisit shots from walks weeks ago, it seems like it has been raining here forever. The forecast is for almost another week of storms and rain ... may have to drag out the wet weather gear.
ON 5079 1 ON 5075 1 ON 5076 X Facebook Btm 2 Nature truly creates some of the most amazing abstract works. These circles of salt are left around the weathering indents of the rock. I'll be back to do more of these.
A Morning around the Skillion … Click to read more
ON 5042 ON 5013 ON 5036 ON 5040 The Skillion is a headland close to Terrigal, you can wander around the rocks out the front of it. Found some of the most beautiful sandstone I think I have ever seen, it was underneath an overhanging cliff ...
It seems that when architure takes it cues from nature it often produces the most pleasing results. This building in Ultimo Sydney has done just that, reminds me of natures staircase the Nautilus shell.
ON 4838 ON 4866 ON 4861 Got a break in the rain today so took a drive to Mangrove Mountain. Thought I'd visit the Ironbark Creek Falls had seen a few images of them and they looked pretty. Not a very well signed track and it was
The rock formations at Bouddi National Park have created some amazing abstract works, not even Picasso could have dreamed up some of them. This one seems to have taken a few cues from him ... segmented and adjux.
When it comes to epic landscapes it's hard to eclipse New Zealand. Spent three weeks doing the North and South islands, they were very different from each other but both had so much to shoot. This is an early morning shot of Aoraki (Mount Cook) partially in
Nothing can prepare one for the spectacle of Bombo on a stormy day. All the energy of the ocean seemed to concentrate on the dark walls of Bombo, the amount of spray and sound of the waves crashing into the headland was incredible.
Mono Awards Entry #3 – IN THE TROUGH – Click to View
My wife and I were in Bermagui on the South Coast NSW, I had really wanted to shoot Horsehead Rock, the weather was a shocker but it was our last chance to get there. The walk to Horsehead Rock is far from easy, since my wife was
The Redgum Track in the Wyrrabalong National Park is full of character filled trees, this one stood out for its untidy but impressive plumage. I find myself visiting these trees again and again, depending on the time of day and weather they can look totally different, good
I will be entering several images in the Australian Photography Mono Awards, this is the first. I took this image on the Coromandel Coast in New Zealand, there is something about beaten up metal and rivets that always conjures up images of a life full of history
Its time to prep for the Mono Awards, would really like to do well in this one! Black and white is where my heart is, I think it is the most 'honest' format, it relies purely on the image and colour covers up nothing. I will post
