Dreamtime

Another image from one of my NT trips last year. I've finally found a bit of time over the wet weekend to put this together.

Tech info:

This is a composite using two panoramas, both from the Yulara Uluru lookout, approx 10km Uluru itself. The sky is 3 shots of the milky way captured around midnight, 25s, f/4, ISO 6400 with 5D3 and 24-70 @ 32mm. The foreground and Uluru is made up from 9 shots just after sunrise the following day, 1/320s, f/5.6, ISO100 with 7D and 70-200 @ 200mm.

Grand Hightops
Grand Hightops

From my trip out to the Warrumbungles National Park in central NSW last year. The landscape out there is truly surreal. In my short overnight stay out there I spent the majority of my time climbing the peaks of these amazing ancient structures, a truly inspiring and grounding experience.

This image is a panorama from the highest peak I reached, the Grand Hightops, and it truly lives up to it's name. The isolation and 6km walk in from the campsite make this feel like a true wilderness. Standing at this great vista, I felt a strong connection to this magnificent place, I can't wait to experience that feeling again.

Surge

I went out to Pearl Beach a few weeks ago when there were some pretty large seas pounding the coast. I was thinking of heading around the point to the rock shelf, but it didn't take long to put that idea to bed with the path constantly inundated by the large swell. It did make for a pretty interesting morning watching the waves rush through the pool, definitely the highest I've seen it there, shame the sky didn't put on more of a show though.

I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror -
The wide brown land for me!

I had a quick overnight trip to Canberra this week and as usual made the most of it hitting 3 different photography locations in my short time there.

This shot is from sunrise on Thursday morning at the National Arboretum. A place still very much in it's infancy with most of the trees barely past sapling stage. That said there's definitely a sense of something great happening there already. You can see a lot of thought has gone into the landscaping and architecture, and as with all things in Canberra, it seems to all fit into the greater plan of the city.

Would love to be able to see this place in about 100 years or so with groves of mature trees. At least I can hope my grandchildren may enjoy it

Shackled at Snug Cove, Eden

There are lots of photography subjects too choose from at the working port in Eden. Plenty of ships, wharves, piers and an impressive break wall.

As the sunset was in it's dying moments I found this old chain descending into the water, with just enough light left to fire off a 3 minute long exposure.

I find photographing relics like this fascinating. I enjoyed spending 3 minutes there waiting for my shot to finish, thinking of the history and things passed that this piece of the scenery played a part in.

Another shot from a morning with some of the most beautiful light I've seen at Mullimburra Point, Eurobodalla National Park.

There are so many great textures and outcrops to explore on this little point. With large cliffs on all sides, danger is always present and I'm always taking extra care and precautions when shooting here.

This shot was taken looking west about 10 minutes after the sun had risen and was filtered through some clouds over the ocean. I love the colour of the water and the warm sun kissing the tessellated cliffs.

One Tree Point

It took me 3 visits to get this shot of spot known well to locals and visitors a like at Tuross Head.

I spotted this comp whilst out for an evening bike ride just before sunset. I took a few snaps on my phone and jumped back on my bike with plans to come back and shoot it properly.

I came back at sunrise the following morning, with gear in tow, but heavy cloud and no colour in the sky saw me leaving unsatisfied.

I came back again for sunset that same day and think I found what I was after.

Mullimburra Point

A definite highlight from my recent South Coast trip. Such a rugged coastal landscape in itself, but add in some amazing light and colour in the clouds, beautiful!

Sunset at Camel Rock, Bermagui.

One of my last sessions from my latest south coast trip. I found a nice little spot halfway up the cliff with just enough protection from the wind to fire off a few long exposures of these amazing rock formations as the sun went down behind me and clouds streaked across the sky.
