Photo of the week
Each week, i’ll try to upload a photo of the week from my library. Some of these images are available as prints on their own page.
Milky Way over Wither Hills Winery Blenheim New Zealand A composite image taken in Blenheim New Zealand of the milky way rising over Wither Hills Winery. Taken early morning in April 2017. Space and the stars have always fascinated me, and I am constantly blown away by how many stars can be […]
Old Miners Cottage Arrowtown New Zealand The beautiful thing about Arrowtown is the colour, especially in autumn as the tree coloured mountains turn from green to shades of yellow and red. Add to this its quaint architecture as a result of its rich gold mining history and you have a recipe for some really […]
TSS Earnslaw Walter Peak High Country Farm On the wind-down after our recent Queenstown New Zealand Photo Tour, I decided to take a cruise on the TSS Earnslaw on Lake Wakatipu. The TSS Earnslaw is a 1912Twin Scream Steamer (TSS), and the only remaining commercial passenger-carrying coal-fired steamship in the southern hemisphere. We […]
That Wanaka Tree No matter how many times a location has been photographed, sometimes it’s just something that has to be done. Apparently part of a stock fence in days gone by.This lone humble willow is now as famous as New Zealand itself. Located in Lake Wanaka, on the South island of New […]
Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge Despite our hectic schedule at this time of year, we managed to get away to Sydney for a couple of days to take in some fresh scenery. It turned out our timing was very poor as we landed in Sydney to a heat wave, so we tended to […]
Photo of the week Sunflowers With all the festive season running around, I haven’t had the chance to get out and about to take photos. So now that we are in the new year, and deep into the sunflower growing season, it was time to dust off the camera and get out and find a […]
Story Bridge Climb – Brisbane While everyone seemed to be mesmerised by Monday’s super moon, I had the opportunity to climb Brisbane’s crown jewel, The Story Bridge. The view from the top is amazing, with Brisbane city on one side, and views out to the bay on the other, this won’t be forgotten anytime […]
Photo of the day San Francisco by night Sleepy San Francisco. A long exposure photo taken while staying at the Hilton, Financial District. On our last night in the foggy city by the bay we decided to treat ourselves to a little luxury, so we booked one of the balcony rooms at the top of […]
Glacier Bay National Park The crowd gathered as our ship noses its way toward the John Hopkins glacier. Glacier Bay Alaska, one of the eagerly awaited highlights from our North American road trip adventure. And why else visit glacier bay unless you’re going to see glaciers. Upon our arrival in glacier bay, we approachedthe […]
Spirit Island – Jasper National Park When Peter Gales’ iconic Spirit Island photo was hung in the Kodak Colorama display in New York’s Grand Central station, it quickly became the iconic view of the Canadian Rockies. Wanting to shoot my own version of this famous photo, I had 2 options, hire a kayak and […]
Multnomah falls, Columbia River Gorge Portland Oregon The Columbia River Gorge boasts a number of beautiful waterfalls, many within easy driving distance from Portland. Of all the falls, Multnomah falls would definitely be the most popular, being only a short 30 minute drive from the city. These cascadingfalls are the tallest waterfall in Oregon, with […]
Chihuly Garden and Glass, Seattle Mind and glass blown While in Seattle on our North American road trip, we stopped in at the must see Chihuly Garden and Glass. Housed beside the Seattle Space Needle in a semi-permanent exhibit located at the Seattle Centre the exhibit showcases of the work of famed […]
Cape Kiwanda- Oregon Coast A tip from a friendly Airbnb host on our recent North America road trip resulted in us paying a visit to Cape Kiwanda beach at Pacific City, Oregon. This little beach is a popular spot for launching flat bottom “Dory” fishing boats from the beach. It is quite the […]
Roughly 215km (135mi) south of San Francisco is this little gem of a bridge on highway 1, the Bixby Creek bridge. As it’s name suggests, this bridge allows highway 1 to cross Bixby Creek along the beautiful Big Sur coastline region of California. Built in 1932, the bridge itself is fairly typical of many other concrete arch bridges scattered along the west coast, but what makes the Bixby Creek Bridge stand out from the rest is it’s stunning location. With rolling mountains on one side and the Pacific ocean on the other the bridge is quite popular with the tourists looking to stretch their legs and take a quick snapshot of the scenery.
Natural Bridge Springbrook National Park A basalt rock formation where cave creek drops through a hole in the cave roof into a pool below, the cave is home to glow worms and a micro bat colony. Access to the cave is via a easy, scenic walk from the carpark along a paved track loop that […]
Golden hour is one of my favourite times of day to shoot landscape photos. This lovely scene presented itself one very early morning on our recent trip to the New England region of New South Wales. It was literally a 90 degree turn from my Gostwyck Chapel Photo, roughly 10km from the town of Uralla, this short bridge leads from the road past the chapel to the Deeargee Woolshed, another historic building that one day I hope to photograph from the inside. This gold light and the low, early morning fog give this shot a dreamy look. Please keep an eye out for more pictures from this area.
Up super early in the morning to drive from North Brisbane to the Gold Coast, to try to catch a sunrise at the Southport sand pumping jetty. The sand pumping jetty stretches 800m out into the Pacific Ocean where it intercepts the northward moving longshore drift sand.
Mt Tibrogargan, the third tallest mountain in the Glasshouse Mountains national park in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. A rhyolite volcanic plug formed 27 million years ago, it is one of the most recognised of the glasshouse mountains.
Went searching for a sunset with some friends and found our way to the Glasshouse mountains lookout at Beerburrum, unfortunately due to trees surrounding the lookout and lack of interest in the sky, there wasn’t much of a sunset to be had.
Maroochy River Boat Houses
Sitting along the banks of the Maroochy River, are these little boat houses. Up early looking for a nice reflection, the river certainly didn’t disappoint. Within minutes the sky turned from deep blue, to an amazing golden hue as the sun made it’s way into the sky.
Dorrigo Steam Railway and Museum
This gem of a place is actually a very large private collection of steam, electric, and diesel engines and rollingstock. We had spotted the property from a road leading to a local waterfall and decided to go investigate. Lucky for us we were spotted by […]
Took a little detour off the highway in New South Wales New England region to find this little gem. 10 km from Uralla, Gostwyck Chapel was built in 1921 and although it sits on private property, the property owners have left it unfenced for the enjoyment of visitors […]
Colourful post sunset over The Church of the Good Shepherd, Lake Tekapo, New Zealand. Situated on the shore of the lake, with snow capped mountains as a backdrop this church is among the most photographed in the world.
