I was travelling down the Midlands Highway one evening, and a storm was clearing, just as the sun was setting. I always try and keep my camera in the car when I travel along this stretch of road, because you often find a moment of magic.
"This 4 day – 46km hike takes you to one of the most remarkable mountain peaks in South-West Tasmania.
Please note: The Frenchmans Cap track is a challenging walk in a region of Tasmania exposed to harsh weather conditions at any time of the year. Access to the summit is quite exposed and should not be attempted in adverse weather. Walkers must be fully self-sufficient, well-equipped and experienced.
The track passes buttongrass plains, unusual rainforest where Huon pine grows alongside King Billy pine, and spectacular glacial valleys, up to Lake Tahune, perched under the huge and spectacular cliff face of Frenchmans Cap. The silvery Precambrian quartzite is some of Australia’s oldest exposed rock."

I'm almost done, stay with me. A big thanks to all my photography friends for encouraging me and believing in me.
And finally, I would like to thank my biggest fan, and live partner Erin O'Brien. Erin, you are awesome, and without you I would not be where I am today, and for that I am truly thankful. You believe in me, even at times when I don't, and always support me and encourage me to get our there and have a go. You are my best friend and I am so lucky to have you in my life!

"Tsukiji Market is best known as one of the world's largest fish markets, handling over 2,000 tons of marine products per day.
A visit to Tsukiji Market is best combined with a fresh sushi breakfast or lunch at one of the local restaurants. There are restaurants both in the inner and outer market area, which are typically open from 5:00 in the morning to around noon or early afternoon."
And that is exactly what we did. Raw fish for breakfast
Here is a fun photo from my recent trip to Japan.
So many great things to see and do. I really loved this place, and would love to go back again and again
I remember the night well. After work on the Friday I jumped in my little car and went for a drive. I had my camera and tripod, but not much else. Didn't really know where I wanted to go, just knew I wanted to head somewhere nice to take some photos. 6 Hours later I ended up at Cradle Mountain. The conditions were perfect. I took this photo at 1am, along with many others on the night, including a short time-lapse.
I then "slept" in my car in the carpark for a few hours, hoping to catch the sunrise, but by morning the weather had changed completely, and it was all foggy and misty. Well, the story goes on, but I might save the rest of it for another day...
