I took a rare trip out to the city last night to participate in the Global Night Squad instameet, hosted by Oz Shot Magazine.Was a great opportunity to meet other like-minded togs and challenge myself to shoot a genre of photography I’m not particularly experienced in. You can check out some of my favourite shots from the night after the jump: (more…)
I’m pleased to announce that one of my images has been featured in the May 2016 issue of Landscape Photography Magazine. The image, titled “Tree of Life” was selected as the winning image for the “Wall of fame” section of the magazine, which highlights the best image submissions for the enthusiast category. This image is one of my favourites and can be purchased as a print here.
I was taking a few shots out at the new Shorncliffe Jetty when a little girl came rolling past on an electric segway. I took the opportunity to hit the shutter for a long exposure, and thankfully she rolled to the side without bumping the camera. The resulting streak took my fairly average image to something quite special.
I noticed the sky had some potential one Sunday afternoon so decided to take a quick trip out to Lake Samsonvale and see what developed. As the sun set the sky was overtaken with dramatic tones and vibrant colours. I set the camera to interval shooting so I could relax and watch it unfold. I also produced a quick timelapse video which you can view after the jump. (more…)
Was in Tassie this weekend and decided to get up at 4am like a crazy person. Just before dawn I managed to capture a number of shots with Mercury and Venus near the horizon and the core of the Milky Way Galaxy overhead. When I look at these shots I feel a sense of galactic vertigo! Gallery of more shots from the Tassie trip after the jump. (more…)
It was an epic night on February 1. After a scorching 35 degree day, severe thunderstorms broke out in the afternoon. Combined with the light of sunset it made for an awe inspiring display of nature’s fury. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me at sunset, but I came out later in the evening to follow the fireworks display nature put on in the evening. I filmed a quick timelapse of the scene which you can check out after the jump. (more…)
The gateway bridge is not one of the most inspiring bridges I’ve photographed, however tonight I managed to capture what I feel is an attractive view of a fairly non-photogenic subject. I managed to capture both a boat passing by and a plane on approach to BNE in this monochrome image.
Took a trip up to Mt Coot-tha tonight and to our surprise we were just in time to see the moon rising over the city. This christmas was the first christmas in 38 years to have a full moon, feel very privileged to have experienced it!
While living abroad, one of the things I’ve sorely missed about Queensland is its epic storms. Thankfully this summer has not disappointed, putting on numerous shows with electrifying performances dancing across the sky. This is one performance I watched in awe from Gordon Jackson Lookout in Petrie. View the gallery after the jump! (more…)
It’s amazing that although this is the third time I’ve captured the Aurora Borealis from Vancouver, many residents have never seen it. Perhaps no one else is crazy enough to be pointing a camera at the sky at 2am. I put together a quick timelapse of the show which you can view after the jump. (more…)
I’ve been keeping my ear to the ground lately regarding aurora activity, and was envious when I saw that the southern hemisphere was in for a peak of aurora activity due to a CME heading our direction. (more…)
