Amsterdam After Dark
I've always wanted to visit this city each time I travel to Europe but somehow couldn't find the time.
This time I made sure I did. Glad I made the effort!
It's more beautiful than I expected. Next time, I'll stay longer:)
Have a beautiful day my friends!

Morning Reflections

A beautiful start to a new day in the Swedish Archipelago as the cruise ship slowly made its way into the city.

Have a great day my friends!

Magical Aurora Show

Intensely beautiful and mesmerizing, the Aurora is also elusive.

We're lucky to have seen it 4 nights in a row when it was highly active.

Definitely moments I would never forget!
Have a great day my friends ✌

Milky All The Way:)

Another shot I took in Coonabarabran, Australia's Astronomy Capital a few days ago.

It was during a New Moon on a very dark, clear night. But the stars were so bright, it actually illuminated the ground below.

Needless to say, I was absolutely star-struck:)

Have a fantastic weekend my friends!

Fiery Sky

Winter is a fantastic time for Milky Way spotting and sunsets here in Australia.
And yesterday was no exception...

The sky just exploded with the most incredible reds and orange hues.
Pity I couldn't get a better foreground. But it was a spectacular sight nonetheless.

Have a fantastic day my friends!

Dazzling Sydney

Sydney's beauty shines through during the impressive Vivid Festival light display.

During the 3-week event, many parts of the city enjoy awesome light installation and music shows.

Although this year, the organiser closed off a lot of my favourite vantage points citing "safety concerns" so I won't be returning for a second take.

Wishing you all a fantastic weekend my friends!

Sydney Gets Moody

The sky exploded with incredible colours and light during last night's sunset over the Sydney Harbour.

It was a pleasant surprise considering complete cloud cover just 10 minutes before this happened.

It just goes to show how unpredictable nature is:)

I've learned from all these years of travelling and shooting that nature always has a way to surprise you in the most amazing way.

Sometimes staying put and waiting for a few moments is all it takes to see what else unfolds.

Wishing you all a great weekend my friends!

Searching for the Light

I'm grateful for the darkness...
Without it, I won't be able to see the magic and splendour of the Northern Lights:)

May your days be filled with Light and Love my friends!

All love,
Nila

Make The Choice. Share your LIGHT:)

Whether you’re just starting to dabble into this wonderful world of photography or an accomplished professional photographer, I invite you to join and help make a difference.

I'm currently running a competition for the BEST photo showcasing Light.
The winner gets a GoPro Hero5 Black ! See link for details, Australia-based only.
http://woobox.com/7snfdq

This is my personal project as my humble attempt at making a difference to others and to the world through my photography.

But I can’t do this to a larger scale without your help.

If you're Australia-based, I urge you to check the competition out. You still own your copyright.

The top 12 photos will be included on the 2018 calendar and book where ALL profits will be donated to World Vision Australia.

I sincerely hope you'd give it a shot:)

As Seth Godin brilliantly puts it:

"Attitude is the most important choice any of us will make. We made it yesterday and we get another choice to make it today. And then again tomorrow.

The choice to participate.

To be optimistic.

To intentionally bring out the best in other people.

We make the choice to inquire, to be curious, to challenge the status quo.

To give people the benefit of the doubt.

To find hope instead of fear in the face of uncertainty.

Of course these are attitudes. What else could they be?

And of course, they are a choice. No one does these things to us. We choose them and do the work (and find the benefits) that come with them."

Wishing you all a fantastic 2017 my friends!

Much love,
Nila

This image was taken at the Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry, in Scotland during my last visit.
