Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast, Queensland
Barossa Valley, South Australia
This was taken at sunset in the Barossa Ranges. I came across these two beautiful pine trees on top of a ridge. Luckily I also got quite an interesting sky whilst I was up there, which looked quite stunning combined with the orange evening light.

Barossa Valley, South Australia
One weekend in spring I had a chance to get back to my family home in the Barossa Valley. Luckily there were good conditions to go out and capture some images, the Barossa is stunning in spring time!
I found this spot doing some driving in the back roads of the Barossa Ranges. I liked the sweeping bend in the road as it went over the hill.
When you think of photography locations in Melbourne probably the last place you would think about would be Frankston. The place has a certain reputation that is not what you would say as a “go to” destination. However this little jetty, part of the Olivers Hill boat ramp, is probably one of the nicer examples of a structure over water that I’ve ever seen. Was pretty glad to get a nice sky for a sunrise too, as the sun was actually rising from behind me.
Moeraki Boulders, South Island, New Zealand
Possibly one of the most vivid sunrises I have ever seen occurred at Moeraki Boulders when I was there. Everything seemed to come together on this morning. This really is an amazing location for seascape photography.

Crescent Moon at Lake Oberon

The Milky Way rising over Lake Oberon between Mount Pegasus north and south. The southwest region of Tasmania is home to some of the most severe weather in Australia. This image was taken on an uncharacteristically clear morning at 3am. The moon can also be seen in the left of frame.

The sun setting over the Twelve Apostles on the first day of 2014.
The amazing thing about this image was the weather preceding it. The day was overcast, windy, rainy, and generally horrible. After several hours of waiting out at the location I was certain sunset was going to be clouded out. I went back to my accommodation feeling disappointed that the effort I had put into getting to this location was potentially wasted. After a few minutes of resting I had the presence of mind to check out the window of my cabin just before sunset. The weather had blown over, and given rise to a beautiful red glowing light. I rushed back and was able to capture this scene. It was a good lesson in never giving up on a shoot!

Aoraki Reflections, Lake Pukaki, New Zealand
Mount Cook / Aoraki reflecting in Lake Pukaki.
The time I spent around this lake was probably some of the best memories of my time in New Zealand. I was great to be able to camp and eat dinner at a location with a view like this! I was very happy when I was setting up this shot as the water fell calm and allowed me to shoot this reflection for a few minutes.
Stony Creek, Coalcliff, NSW
Visiting this location for sunrise I had originally planned to photograph the rock pool. However, the creek in the distance caught my eye so I went over to investigate. Getting low down I was able to accentuate the sand walls created by creek, and it was all topped off with a stunning sunrise!
The Pinnacles, Nambung National Park, Western Australia
Taken after sunset, there was still a golden hue to the light and the absence of shadows created an interesting presence of these amazing stone pillars. The mechanism by which these unique stone formations were created is still unsure. One theory is that they are stone casts from an ancient forest. Whatever created them, it sure is a cool place.
Ross Jones Pool, Coogee, Sydney
A spectacular sunrise on this morning, the only cloud in the sky was just in the right position. Image will be printed without watermarks.

Nelson River, Tasmania
On the walk back from Nelson Falls in western Tasmania I noticed this beautiful composition along the river. It was raining whilst I took this and had to wipe my circular polariser after each frame I took to remove the rain drops. Tedious work at best, however the effort is truly worth it.
Surfers Paradise, Queensland
Mawbanna, North Western Tasmania
We we probably shooting in this location for about 45 minutes. Unfortunately there were quite a few shadows cast over the falls by trees due to the time of the day we were there. There was a brief period of about 5 minutes when the sun went behind the clouds, the shadows disappeared, and the exposures were just popping. This was when this images was taken. A good lesson in patience and persistence for me.
