Storm Clouds

The thunder and rain in Melbourne this afternoon reminded me of this shot I took on our recent trip through NSW. ‪#‎stormclouds‬ ‪#‎landscape‬ ‪#‎photography‬ ‪#‎outback

Lake in drought

This was a shot I took back in 2009 with my old Nikon D70 (my first digital SLR). Not bad for a 6MP camera! This was taken near Glenmaggie in the region of Gippsland, Victoria, during what was clearly a time of drought. We were still suffering water restrictions at that time. I should make another trip to see how the lake looks now! I imagine it will be quite different! #drought #Gippsland #Australia

The Dish!

Road-tripping from Melbourne to Brisbane, we stopped in at Parkes, NSW to see the CSIRO Radio Telescope made famous by the great Australian movie, "The Dish"! I must admit it was an impressive sight. I am fascinated by science and technology and this particular icon represents a proud moment in Australian history, when the signal for the moon landing was beamed around the world.

Creative landscapes

I took this shot back in 2012 when I was on a camping trip to Dimboola. I liked the reflection on the water, but it was a dull day and the image just wasn't jumping out at me, so I thought I would play around with some effects. The solarisation effect reminds me of the film clip to the David Bowie song, Ashes to Ashes! I am quite happy with the result, but happy to hear what you think!

Shedding some light in a dark gloomy gaol

These lanterns added to the mood for a recent cocktail party set up at the Old Melbourne Gaol.

Hong Kong shower

I occasionally like to share some of my personal work on here. This shot was taken on a trip to Hong Kong in 2008. There was a fountain in a public square where children were running through to cool off. The sun was also setting and I noticed the way the light was reflecting on the water showering down, so I grabbed my camera and caught a pic of this girl running through the water.
