Despite being one of my favourite SA locations I have never done Robe justice photographically in the past. The main reason for this is that when Lisa and I head down there we are usually having such a great time that the camera doesn’t get much of a work out. It was for this reason that I made a solo trip down the Limestone Coast last week hoping to come away with a couple of iconic Robe images.

I was going to shoot the first sunrise at Hoopers Beach but when I woke at 6am something told me to head to the jetty where I had not shot before. I’m glad I did, as this scene unfolded! While the sun never actually made it out, it created a large pink ball on the horizon right at the tip of the jetty. The pink light catching the rock shelf just topped off a near perfect sunrise.
If you love Robe, stay tuned as a Limestone Coast tour is in the planning stage.
Enjoy!

I have been blown away with the positive response to this recent bushfire photo on Facebook. It's been a horrific and scary time for everyone affected, but as a landscape photographer I live for capturing nature in all its forms - be it a calm colourful sunrise, an angry storm, or in this case - a raging inferno.

I've been putting a lot of thought into what I might be able to do with this image with the knowledge that whatever I do there will be people that disagree and feel I should be doing things differently. In the end though it is my photo, and my decision and one I haven't taken lightly.

I have decided to auction off a 45" framed and signed, 1/1 limited edition print and give 100% of the sale price (minus cost of production) to the CFS. This image will never be available as a print again. The lucky winner will have themselves a unique piece of South Australian history.

I'm sure everyone would have their own opinion on who I should be donating the money to, but I have decided on the CFS as without them so many more houses would have been lost. They risk their lives as volunteers, going into conditions most of us will never see and in my eyes they are true heroes.

The piece should be completed within 2 weeks and will be on display during the auction at a local Adelaide Hills establishment. (To be named later)

I will update with the auction info at a later date.

Cheers

Title: Lightning Express

Anyone who has followed my work for a while would know I love capturing images that show nature interacting with man. After shooting a field and then a lookout view during the storm the other night - I knew I couldn’t yet go home. I liked the shots I got earlier, but they didn’t blow me away. I needed more out of this storm.

My first thought was the Torrens Island Power Station - but I have already done that in my first ever lightning shoot and I really wanted something different. So while driving down the expressway I thought ‘Why not here??’.

I stopped the car on the narrow emergency lane and setup my tripod spending 25 minutes with semi trailers whizzing by 2 metres to my right and lightning strikes belting down all too close around me. When the thunder was directly above me and the strikes were seriously close I knew it was time to retreat however. I grabbed my camera off the tripod and just sat in my car for a couple of minutes before opening my window, shoving the open legged tripod through it and hightailing it out of there!

I’m stoked with the result though. A unique capture that was just what I was hoping for.

All shares appreciated guys!
