This Port Stephens sunset image captures the relaxing atmosphere of the peninsula perfectly.
I have never seen the waters of Tilligerry Creek, Port Stephens as calm as at Sunset on this winter’s afternoon. Sailboats and Houseboats alike sit moored at this calm inlet, as the sun sets away from them, leaving the simplicity of the vessels and their reflections to imprint my camera sensor.
The peach and apricot colours of this image are offset by the white of the skies edge and the pink blush starting to come through the glow.
Relax with this strikingly simple image decorating your lounge room, office or bedroom, and think about these peaceful vessels at sunset.
I was heading to work one morning at a different location to normal and drove past this forest of Malaleuca trees. I didn't have my camera with me and it was one of those moments I wish I did. So from that day forward, I took my camera and left a little earlier every day, waiting for the sunrise to do its thing, one more time for me.
I was lucky, only a few days of waiting and the sun shone exactly they way I had hoped and it lit up these magnificent tree trunks and leaves, creating this glowing artwork.
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.
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.
