Cargo (2016)

Among the cargo of luxury goods on board the Loch Ard was a large porcelain peacock that remarkably survived the wreck in 1878 unscathed. It is now on display at Flagstaff Hill in Warrnambool.

Impressions (2016)

The lighting at this location was both wonderful and challenging. The opportunity to capture a full dynamic range from dark shadow to bright highlight was all there with wonderful subject matter thrown in. However, the times when the contrasting light was just too much for the camera made positioning myself correctly to give the impressions I wanted, more challenging.

Portal (2016)

The Portal was open today
I hesitated to enter
The other land awaited me
Would it be any better?


Some of the Myrtle Beech trees at Maits Rest were just amazing, this one big enough for a family to stand inside.

Among the attractions in the Maits Rest Rainforest Walk, on the Great Ocean Road is the many ancient Myrtle Beech trees. Their roots creep around the forest adding to the wonderful atmosphere that the dappled light from the dense canopy provides.
