The Glen Brittle area in Southern Skye is one of the locations (of many) that I have pencilled down for many a return trip in the future once I can afford the time , travel cost, and independent enough kids to share the experience with. This is one of the easier hikes in the area which just happened to start glowing while the gear was stowed away. As soon as the tripod was in the right position, true gloom set in for the evening and the distant passing light had passed for good. Scotland was memorable for its passing light in our trip there in 2010.

A wintry sunset at Lake Barmera taken in 2013. At the time, Charlotte was on my back calling for mummy to come over. I did want to get lower to catch more of the reflection but in the end, Charlie won and I left this long exposure going while walking over to mummy taking her shot of the scene. VEEFcakes FTW.

I’ve always been intrigued with the possibility of photographing a moonlit foreground at moonset with the milky way without blending exposures (Edit : that should read without blending exposures from different times of the night – a longer exposure was taken for the foreground at the time as the moon was getting dim quickly). This was the one time I’ve been able to get to a spot to take such an image – eerie being out there but great fun too!

Last year, Marianne and I witnessed some of the most amazing light during our trip from Kaikoura. This was one of the more subdued experiences on the last morning prior to our departure back to home. Since I had to wade 20m out to this tree, I more or less spent the whole morning in the water on or around the log finding compositions to shoot. Interestingly, as the morning grew later, I saw another couple arrive at the shore photographing various other spots from the shore before they spotted me out in the water and then started photographing the tree as well (with me photobombing!). This was a morning where I didn’t really chase light , but like the couple on the shore, there are mornings when I do go into ‘headless chook’ mode running around trying to improvise to suit the light. It’s an age old internal debate – stick with composition or chase light?
We are in the process of finally planning another holiday for October ! Hopefully #2 at 6 months will be able to handle some photographic shoots from our back 🙂

This spot in the town of Binalong Bay is at the southern most end of the aptly named Bay of fires in the northeast of Tasmania. If is close to a very often photographed tree in this area and lies on a peninsula with sunset and sunrise options . The rock patterns make for all sorts of compositional possibilities too.

This spot is about 5 minutes upstream from Purakaunui falls. I thought I’d take a dip but the water was deceptively deep getting here lol. The falls walk reminds me alot of the walk to Liffey falls in Tasmania and the falls themselves are quite comparable. It’s almost like a piece of New Zealand and Tassie replicated themselves a few thousand kilometers apart.

Daytime /nighttime image taken from Eyre Peninsula, South Australia. I will post the 2 separate images in facebook later this week for comparison. Hoping to get some new work by the end of the year but for now, it’s baby minding duties and playing around on the PC with the spare time 🙂

This image was taken on the afternoon prior to the ‘Angelus Rising’ shot here : [Angelus Rising]
The plan was to shoot a sunset from the opposite ridge and Hinapouri tarn but 100km winds and horizontal sleet put paid to that and I had to wait for the following morning! Personally, I like this image better but the light in the previous!
