Headed out last night as a small window of nice twilight presented itself after a heavy shower of rain.
I will be posting more on here but also on facebook which has a few more images so head over and have a look. Please like the page, thanks heaps!

Up early shooting with the crowds that flock to the 12 Apostles this time of year. Thought I’d be the only one there. Anyway, was just about to leave before I noticed the sun lighting up the wave spray and then I noticed the lone photographer on the beach and his silouette giving scale to the cliffs.
Driving along a fairly remote area of S.A (what isn’t) I decided to turn left down a dirt road to try and take advantage of some nice summer clouds. After a couple of kilometres and cresting a hill this little scene appeared to my delight. No town for miles and only a residence every few km’s but this old church still sits proudly amidst the dry paddocks.
I’ve just completed my second trip on the Overland Track in Tassie with the first one being 20 years ago as a teenager. The weather last time was bad, didn’t see Cradle Mountain as I walked past, nor Tassie’s highest peak Mt Ossa. The weather this time was worse with constant sleet and then snow and didn’t see either mountain again, however the sky cleared one morning for 10 minutes before snowing again. Whilst the track is a lot easier than 20 years ago with some boardwalks it is still very much a challenge and the mountain atmosphere is a powerful force not too be underestimated, even in summer. Didn’t get many images but after fresh snow this place is just pure magic.
Tried for a couple of mornings to capture a scene that I’ve had my eye on for a while. The forest is lush at the moment with a few years of decent and consistant rains. A beautiful scene as the sun appeared over the horizon hitting the forest behind. Only problem, leeches. After every shot the little bastards had to be flicked off the boots and socks were tucked into the strides….luckily no fashion police to be seen.
The blog is nearly dead but thought that I’d pump a bit more life into it. This shot was taken after a nice little blizzard earlier in the day so the snow was pristine, powdery and perfect. Careful not to get any tracks in the scene many steps were taken and the old leg sunk two foot into a hole but still remained dry….
