People

I think in the future when I have the time I’d like to dedicate a whole chunk of time to just looking and photographing people….here’s some I have taken over the last few years that I personally liked…    

Cockatoos

I think you either like Cockatoos or you don’t. They are a very common Australian bird and can be rather cheeky and a little noisey at times. I for one really like them. I think they have allot of character and I like their cheeky side too. They also do make a pretty easy target …

Cicadas

I really thought I’d got my Cicada photos out of my system with the last blog……I guess not. They tell me that every seven or so years we get plague like proportions of these little fellas, and this year is one of them. The warm weather has brought them out of the ground around 3 …

The 3 Sisters is one of Australia’s most iconic landmarks attracting millions of visitors each year. In my younger days I worked as a climbing guide and have taken hundreds of people to the summit of these unique sandstone formations, unfortunately you are no longer allowed to climb these peaks. Rising out of the Jamison …

Valley mood panoramic

An integral part of living in the beautiful Blue Mountains in Australia is dealing with the annual threat of bushfires. In order to control this threat the local Blue Mountains district  RFS do a great job with planned hazard reduction controlled burns throughout the year. Whenever I see or smell  the smoke in the valleys I try and make a …

Adelina Falls

Nestled down in the mid Blue Mountains is the wonderful little township called Lawson. I had heard rumours that there were some waterfalls in the area for some time and thought it was about time to check these so called waterfalls out. I have to say that I was really surprised at the quality and beauty …

Triptych delights

Okay so perhaps I get a little carried away when Autumn is upon us. I just love how it can transform an area into something really quite magical. A street that you may have driven down a hundred times, suddenly becomes alive with new colours and vibrancy causing you too slow down as you witness it …

Blue Tongue Lizard

On a recent trip out to the beautiful Wollemi National Park  in NSW,  Australia we found the stunning blue toungued lizard casually lying across the forest roads. A little concerned for his safety I got a couple of photos before ushering him off to the side of the road, as I’m sure the forest trucks were …
