Taken at the gorgeous Fingal Bay Spit, in the Nelson Bay region of NSW, this image brings to mind the things that the two separate bodies of water, constantly clashing and joining together can tell each other, and how it speaks of two people talking and sharing ideas, with the sandbar in between representing our individual understandings and beliefs.
It shows time continuing to pass and how change and movement are required, bringing growth and development. It correlates with bringing peace and happiness to individuals and groups of people in varying situations, whilst keeping some stability and flexibility like the sand.
One of my favourite images still to this day, this Mangrove standing alone in Fanny Bay is so surreal that I often get asked whether I faked it or not.
Careful framing and composition were required to give the illusion that the mangrove is completely alone, and a long exposure blurs the water as the sky floods with a soft pink, courtesy of the sunset.
Four wheel driving around Adelaide River, late in the afternoon we reached our goal, Adelaide River itself, a place with a river crossing that my mate described as a "tropical paradise".
We reached the spot, and he was not wrong, the river gently flows over shallow rocks creating a continuous gentle flowing sound, and the canopy above took out most of the heat of the afternoon.
My mate actually fell asleep on the roof racks whilst I was taking this photo!
This Hilux has obviously had a bad time of it crossing the river when it had a lot more power to it, I doubt it will last another wet season.
Please enjoy this slice of the territory.
Antelope Canyon is one of the most photographed and unreal places on the planet.
Hidden in the Arizona Desert, you would never pick the location existing if you hadn't heard about it. From the surface, these slot canyons look like little 2 -3m wide cracks in the desert floor. However once you descend to the bottom, the origin of the canyons becomes clear from the water smoothed contours. When it rains in this desert the water collects in these small canyons and smashes through carving them deeper and deeper.
This surreal image will intrigue any viewer.
The red rocks of the largest man made lake in Australia glow as the last of the setting sun hits them.
From this 4wd only lookout we captured an amazing vista with some of Australia's earthy tones.
This amazing country keeps calling me, long after having left. The Kimberley Region of Western Australia has some of the most interesting and dramatic scenery anywhere in our great land.
Lake Argyle represents an incredible engineering achievement, creating one of Australia’s great food bowls out of previously dry and arid grazing land. The Ord River Dam has backed the water of the Ord River up into one of the largest lakes in the country.
We camped on the shore of the lake the night before this image was taken and the sunset that night gave me great enthusiasm for the colours of the rock walls surrounding the lake. Walls that had been part of river canyons for countless years suddenly saw the evening light reflected onto them from the setting sun. We disembarked from our boat, wary of the freshwater crocodiles that dotted the shoreline, allowing me to get this image with the water of the lake calmed by a long exposure, before we headed back out on the boat for some champagne and a swim.
The lines from previous water marks on the wall create interesting patterns, as well as telling the history of the lake, and the small, stunted trees dotted on the wall immediately capture my interest.
Autumn Shelter was created at Mt Wilson, in the Blue Mountains, which is known for displaying beautiful Autumn Colours.
This Maple tree shelters a stone bench, perfect for a rest on a warm Autumn day. The sunlight filters through and the breeze rustles the leaves, drifting your mind away from every day life.
A warm glow glistens over the area letting the yellow and orange leaves capture the light.
Relax with this piece of art on your wall, let the tree shelter you as the piece reminds you of peaceful Autumns past and future.
Jim Jim Falls created one of those life changing moments for me, the ones that you look back on in 10 years and can picture clear as a bell.
Walking in, boulder hopping and hoping not to drop all of my camera gear in the icy Outback water, I was running out of time to make it back to a spot I wanted to capture right at the last light of sunset.
I took the extra time to walk into the final pool here and it just absolutely took my breath away, that somewhere that is so changed by the seasons can be so beautiful.
I perched precariously atop a giant boulder, one of many strewn across this ancient landscape by the unstoppable flows of wet season water, and captured this panorama, stitched together from 5 separate images. It was the only way to attempt to capture the scale of this beautiful spot.
I took some time to drink it all in and really appreciate it, before heading back out to my patiently waiting wife.
Thunderstorms in the far distance drop rain into the Beagle Gulf, north of Darwin, as another tropical sun sets.
The beautiful colours of Darwin's waters reflect the deep blue of the sky just after the sun has set.
A beautiful pastel vertical panorama image that sweeps you off your feet into the serenity of the ocean. Taken as sunset glows behind, the aqua water shines through the waves as they roll onto the shore.
I tend to find myself drifting off to an unknown world when I look into the image. I wonder where I can go next in my life journey and what is on the horizon for me and my family. I can feel the sand washing out from under my toes as I sink into the image.
I created this artwork to bring some Newcastle peace and calmness to my space and remind me the future is beyond tomorrow, it is all the days ahead.
Ahhh those summer beach days, this shot of Dixon Park Beach, Merewether captures Newcastle in the Summer holidays.
I absolutely love everything this image shows; the white sandy beach, the turquoise blue water, the gentle waves, the beach goers enjoying the sunshine, it just makes my heart sing and happiness burst out.
