Kimberley Roadtrip 2012

I’ve just returned from my latest travels starting in Darwin through Kakadu, along the Gibb River Road to Broome and back again through the Bungle Bungle, all up about 5000km’s. What a fantastic part of Australia! It was fairly dry but as it was the start of the buildup to the wet, generally the light was great in the afternoons. This image of a Kimberley Boab is from the Gibb River Road with the Cockburn Rangers and an almost full moon in the background, taken with the Nikon D800e and my Zeiss 21mm 2.8 Lens.

I was on my way up to Marions Lookout and couldn’t resist shooting this scene again.

Marions Lookout

I’ve had this image in my ‘working on’ folder for a while now and wasn’t quite happy with the color version, so I settled on the B&W.  Marions Lookout, Cradle Mountain Tasmania.

2011 Epson International Pano Awards

I’m happy with my results from this years Epson International Pano Awards, I entered 4 images and they all got awards, I won 1 silver and 3 bronze for the following images.


Pandanni Garden

Another image from Cradle Mountain, at the start of the Overland Track.


The Cloud Catcher

I captured this image of Mount Warning last week while in NSW.  The Aboriginal name for Mt Warning is Wollumbin ‘The Cloud Catcher” it’s the basalt plug of the world’s largest and oldest extinct volcano. Due to it’s height and position on the east coast Mt Warning catches the first rays of Australia’s morning sun.


Pandanni Sunrise

Another one from Cradle Mountain, after a morning of mist and rain with the odd bit of good light I decided to to take a walk up the start of the overland track. I found these three large Pandanni Tree’s along the way. This one is a ten image stitch with the 5D Mk2 and a 50mm 1.4 lens.


Cradle Mountain Reflection

Another from Cradle Mountain, I gave the startrails a go as well, but after about an hour the clouds rolled in.


Moods of Cradle Mountain

I captured this one on my first trip to Tassie earlier in the year, always great to see snow on the ground in summer.


First Post – Cradle Mountain Sunrise

Hi, this is my first blog post….. a bit behind the 8 ball with this blogging thing oh well better late than never:o) This image is from last weekend, I was at Cradle Mountain for the opening of my new exhibition at the Wilderness Gallery. The light was very patchy, lots of rain and mist with a few good breaks in the weather.
