Lonely Planet’s Best in Asia Pacific 2019

Lonely Planet’s Best in Asia Pacific 2019

Down South is Lonely Planet’s Best in Asia Pacific 2019 ! How awesome is that?!  Of course, I’ve always known that. It’s why I live in Dunsborough. If you haven’t visited yet, then you definitely should. Maybe wait until summer though. It’s a bit wet and cold at the moment.
This is what Lonely Planets had to say – “Take one look at Meelup Beach and you’ll wonder where it’s been all your life: the West Australian bush parts to reveal ocean the hue of a Bombay Sapphire bottle, which is typical of the coastline stretching from Margaret River to the state’s south. Beyond the sand, some of the country’s slickest wineries, breweries and restaurants lie between tracts of tall-tree forest and kangaroo-dotted farmland.”

How different do we react to our surroundings?

How different do we react to our surroundings?

How different do we react to our surroundings. These two images were taken on the same day. We were in Perth for a wedding so I took the camera up to take some photos on Sunday morning. The black and white image is one of those I took. Hand held through the car window and rain trying to convey the scene that was in front of me and the mood I was feeling. Later that day when we got home I decided to go and finish the day on a positive note. I went to my favourite beach at Cape Naturaliste and took the image on the right. Same day, same camera, same photographer. The only thing that changed was my attitude. I love that photography can take you away and make you focus on something that is good and positive.

2019 is here!

2019 is here!

What better way to welcome in the new year with a new image.

2018 was the year of the aerial once again.  Aerial photography has exploded into the mainstream over the past decade.  From the early days of Richard Waldendorp shooting from a plane, to drones redefining what is possible. It has been an exciting ride.  It used to be up in a light aircraft or helicopter but I prefer a drone these days for lots of reasons.   Most being the ability to hover and compose more effectively.  The ability to shoot straight down without any angle which means the image can be rotated in any direction in post but still look right.

I love aerials but they aren’t my passion.  I prefer the banal urban landscape.  This is what I have been exploring a lot in the past 9 years.

So what is new in 2019 for me?  Possibly a new camera system and definitely new images.  But I want to continue to talk more about deeper issues.  Issues relating to the environment and how we can all do our bit to reduce our carbon footprint.  No finger pointing here just the facts and good, open and honest discussions.

It is going to be a year of excitement and hopefully positive change.  Thanks to all of you for interacting with my posts on Facebook and Insta and for all the likes, the chats in the gallery and the goodwill.

We really all have more in common than differences.  Clean air, water, food on the table.  A roof over our head. Freedom of thought, democracy and a government that looks after the people.  We all want that.

See you on the beaches, in the gallery or on the side of a mountain looking for magic light!

Another Salt Pond

Another Salt Pond

Who doesn’t like a salt pond? What??? Is there someone out there who doesn’t? I don’t believe it. Some of the best aerial images I have seen are over these amazing places. Again WA has the best ones (sorry the rest of the country) but then everything is better in WA. With a few exceptions like Dunsborough which really is horrible (you should stay away- nothing to see here). This image however was shot in Penong, SA so I have to give them that one. It was taken on a shoot for RM Williams and still one of my favourites to this day.
