Bay of Fires, Tasmania

26 Dec 2010 at 9:20pm

I had two beers tonight, quickly, on an empty stomach. Now I’m not a big drinker and it sort of gave me a bit of arrogance and ego not normally associated with someone so humble!! I told my wife I was going to create something pretty damned amazing, the like of which the world had never seen before. I failed!! She told me in no uncertain terms “Nice Stocker”

Bugger, it just goes to show alcohol and editing should not be mixed. I think listening to System of a Down didn’t help either.

One theory I put to the test though is that heavy metal music makes you think about the devil, death and dying. Well have a look at this photo. Bright, light and out of sight! Busted!!! Heavy metal music turns you into a soft marshmallow capable of nothing more hard than a cup of tea and sponge cake! So all you metal mothers out there listen to some Rick Astley if you want to produce images the devil would be proud of!

Shot on the most fantastical Phase One P65+ and 45mm Phase lens. Focus stacked for mintness!

  1. I think maybe you should try a glass of red and some early Van Halen cira 1978-1981 … That always helps me … bay of fires has some very cool beaches, reminded me a lot of down south where you live …
