Tropical Creek is a vertical panorama, displaying the lush environment of Florence Falls, in Litchfield National park, N.T. Australia.
A small bridge crosses the fast flowing creek, on the way to the falls. The lush beautiful greens here will look amazing in any situation where a vertical panorama is required, such as the end of a corridor or entrance hall.
This image was created while on a spontaneous stop at Somersby Falls on the way home after spending the weekend in Sydney for Vivid. We had a bit of time before we had to be home and we hadn’t been to Somersby Falls in a number of years. We also knew with the recent rainfall the falls should have been flowing nicely. So, we decided to drop in.
I forgot to charge my batteries for my camera after being at Vivid the night before so I knew I didn’t have many shots left. I scouted the location back and forth looking for the composition I was imaging.
To get to this spot, I had to walk along the slippery rock edge and try not to get my shoes and socks soaked, climb up and perch myself on the edge of a boulder. I struggled to get my tripod to steady itself due to the legs needing to be at such different lengths and positions. The amount of water cascading was perfect for this long exposure and the shine on the tree trunk brings another element of life to the image. I love the varying colours, shapes and layers of the rock shelf which forms the waterfall.
We were the only ones here at this particular time and we felt a world away from any civilisation, which was such a contrast to the previous days in Sydney.
This creek in the beautiful Mossman Gorge near Port Douglas is the absolute embodiment of beauty in nature.
We recently went to this location during the wet season, and this creek is a solid 3km walk through the rainforest to get to. By the time we reached it, I took about 3 photo's then couldn't stand it any more, stripped off and went for a swim! The water was seriously chilly and extremely refreshing.
This is one of my favourite locations from recent shoots.
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.
We drove our hired Motorhome through the Otways National Park to this incredible location, along small one lane roads that wound through the forest, down a small gravel road and into a carpark for about 8 cars.
The walk down to the falls is short but challenging with it's steepness and number of steps, and we were on a seriously tight schedule here to make sunset at the 12 Apostles.
Thankfully the location was just amazingly beautiful, I couldn't stop clicking the shutter as composition after composition appeared for me.
In the editing suite, I chose this image to represent Hopetoun Falls as it embodies it nicely for me, a beautiful waterfall surrounded by lush cool climate rainforest. You appear to peek underneath the huge tree ferns to get a glimpse of the waterfall.
I hope you enjoy it.
This image was captured early in 2017, at the peak of a fierce wet season up in Darwin.
I jumped over the no access chain down to the stairs at Berry Springs, and set up the legs of my tripod in this turbulent flowing water, in a similar spot to that which I captured at the end of the last dry season.
I love the differences that the changing seasons brings to the Darwin landscape, and capturing that change makes me feel natures awesomeness!
In the Lynn Canyon park in North Vancouver lies this hidden slice of semi-urban rainforest. It lies on the far side of the famous Lynn Canyon suspension bridge.
We visited in mid winter, although Vancouver's typical rainy weather keeps snow off the ground, it allows mosses to flourish in amongst these tree's.
I am reminded of the sheer beauty of this place every time I view a print of this photo.
Whilst I was in the Otways National Park recently, I had heard about this amazing stand of Giant California Redwoods. They were planted in the 1930's as a softwood logging experiment, and never chopped down.
They are down a gravel road, about 30 km from the nearest town of Apollo Bay, and make a fantastic picnic spot.
The National Park was recently expanded to include this stand of tree's, the first time it's ever happened for an introduced species.
The sun was filtering through these amazing tree's, I quickly set up the camera and tripod and shot this beautiful scene of the moss covered Giant Redwoods on the banks of the Aire river.
I hope you enjoy this shot, which showcases the beauty of this imported species, in this one amazing spot in Victoria. I could have spent hours here!
Taken from my Phantom 4 Pro drone, the large sensor does this location justice. The junior train of Walka Water Works winds alongside the bright lake, framed by fall trees. The small dots on the lake shore are ducks, and I even captured some turtles swimming.
This is a view not many people will ever see.
This image, taken on the road out of the Megalong Valley in the Blue Mountains, NSW, shows just how varied the landscapes in our beautiful country can be. The cool temperate climate here allows giant ferns to flourish by the side of the road.
This image brings peace of mind and the beauty of Nature to any room.
These Pandanus fall gracefully into the calm waters of Berry Springs swimming hole, near the township of Berry Springs in the Northern Territory. The blues and greens in this image inspired me to head closer to the water and brave the light rain to capture the perfect composition.
Berry Springs is normally packed with tourists and locals seeking relief from the heat in these beautiful surrounds, however we attended the location after hearing that it was closed due to a crocodile sighting. I thought this would be a rare opportunity to create such a peaceful and serene artwork, from a location well known to many, that I had been visiting for years without being able to capture.
This remote swimming spot in the Northern Territory of Australia is normally packed with people seeking relief from the tropical heat, and why wouldn't you in such a beautiful spot!
Unfortunately a recent crocodile sighting had prevented swimmers from entering the water, so I took the opportunity to get a people free shot at this stunning spot.
