Twin Pools

I’ve been on the road for the last 2-3 weeks covering over 5000km’s, this image is from far western Queensland. These rock pools are very deep, I tries to swim down and reach the bottom, not a chance 🙂

LIGHT ON THE LAND

I’ve been working on an exciting new project for the last few months……My first book! It’s called Light on the Land and has 100 of my favorite and most popular images. I’ve done the design and layout myself with the help of Renee Creative from the Sunshine Coast. I’ve gone down the self-publishing route so that I have complete control over the whole process, which also means it’s being printed 100% in Australia. It’s going to print this week and should be ready for sale towards the end of next month. With the book so close I’ve decided to offer my customers, blog and facebook followers a special pre-release offer. If you order your copy of Light on the Land for $46.00 inc delivery to anywhere in Australia before the 15th of July, I’m going to include a 30cm x 22cm signed, unframed fine art print valued at $125.00 at no extra cost (five prints to choose from). Please follow the link below to my website to get your copy and choose your free print. Thanks in advance for your support.

Picaninny Creek Sunset

I spent a few hours exploring Picaninny Creek at the Bungle Bungle on my last afternoon there. The sunset didn’t look like it was going to do anything exciting, but in the end lit the place up nicely. Also I’ve just returned from a trip out to western Queensland so I’ve got a heap of new images coming! Check out my website and my facebook page for more new images.
