South

South

When I think of the south, it’s this sort of scene I have in mind. Snow capped peaks piercing clouds under vivid blue skies. Land so imposing that it commands not just your attention, but your time. I could sit outside and just watch the clouds roll past for hours. Peaceful and still as the [...]

Half Way Home

Half Way Home

Flying down the highway while the sun sets golden over the hills. Open land like this just begs to be explored. What’s over the hill? I don’t know, but we should go and find out. Taken near Lancefield in country Victoria on a brief flying visit driving from Seymour through to Ballarat, a town I [...]

This walkway is found along the Hooker Valley track in the Mt.Cook National Park. While we were on the track, an avalanche took out a tight part of the walk (as it bends around a sheer cliff face), making the route back impassable. Those of us still on the track had to be airlifted out. [...]

Sailor’s Delight

Perth City Skyline

Perth City Skyline

I’ve done this shot before, as has everyone. That said, I still love it. This is the Perth city skyline as seen from Kings Park.

Stirling Sunset

Stirling Sunset

I’d never been to the Stirling Ranges before this particular day. I knew all about Bluff Knoll, but what I didn’t know about was all the other peaks. It is a wonder place to drive through, and one I want to spend a lot more time exploring, especially in the fading or rising light. Unfortunately, [...]
