The Moon In My Eyes.

Latest image from Great Ocean Road.

I was lucky enough to wake early and have a sneak peek of the Moon over the 12 Apostles. What a beautiful sight it was, the moonlight from behind the Apostles and the first of the morning light illuminating the rock stacks in the foreground. The image was taken at 5.30am, with clouds moving in quickly from the South – I managed to shoot 3 images at 30-second exposures before the clouds completely covered the Moon and the moment was gone.

Image will be available for purchase as a Limited Edition from my Website.

Fine Art Prints Available.

My latest addition to my favourite print collection is now available through my website.

 

This stunning image was captured a little closer to home, Williamstown to be exact. Conditions were just perfect to be out taking photos with no wind  giving the water a crystal clear finish which helps to create the wonderful reflections and extra depth needed to help bring this image  to life.

Williamstown is located at the mouth of the Yarra River where it enters Hobsons Bay and Port Phillip, south-west of the Melbourne city centre.

Originally Melbourne’s first sea port, Williamstown has developed from what was a neglected industrialised centre into a popular and fashionable maritime village.

The beaches are usually a great spot to catch sunrise or sunset depending where you choose to shoot, City views to the East and Ocean views to the West.

This lovely image of Milford Sound has been added to my website Gallery.

Milford Sound is an amazing place to visit any time of year, l have been lucky enough to have visited this lovely destination on a couple of occasions and was completely overwhelmed with the landscape and majestic atmosphere that it holds.

On this particular visit l had been greeted with such a moody and dramatic scene, which almost took my breath away. the depth of the scene was enough to leave a lasting impression that will live in my memories for years to come.

The cloudscape was ever-changing and evolving around me with such brilliance, photographing the scene as it was a pure delight.

I look forward to my next visit.

Please visit my website if you would like to purchase this lovely image.

Hi Friends,

 

A couple more pics from my week camping in The Grampians National Park, Halls Gap, Victoria.

These particular images were captured over at Reids Lookout and the Balconies. The Balconies are only a short stroll from the carpark, 10-15 minutes each way, its an easy trek on a gravel sand path and some lovely views along the way.

The views are really spectacular, all year round.

Armageddon Day in Melbourne. I captured this image of Melbourne some time ago, the Melbourne Dockland precinct was going through a major change and new buildings were popping up all around the place, there was rubble and ruins lying around as the big machinery came through and uprooted all the old stuff. This image is almost Armageddon like, with the City looking as though it will fall to ruins like the foreground, the sky and clouds add that explosion feeling whilst the bird is the only thing able to escape the madness. This is 1 exposure, no elements were added. A one of a kind image! Darren J

Victorian Landscape Photographer.

These lovely images were captured over at the Bakers Oven along the Great Ocean Road. Dependent on the season and time of year, the algae will be very lush or completely burnt out. My recommendations is to visit during springtime to take full advantage of the lush and vivid algae colours.

Gibson Steps.

l needed another shot, to feel more of that salt water in my veins, the cravings are more hungry than ever before, the wanting and needing is now beyond my control, every moment l become more desperate, despair creeps into my bones and rage fills my mind, how can l reach you and feed my desire and feel you in my veins, you are my lifeblood, you are the ocean.

Hi Friends,

It’s been a while since my last post, with Christmas and the New Year things have been quite hectic for us all l imagine. Hope you all enjoyed the festive season and hopefully we can get back to travelling and doing lots of photography.

Last weekend was my first visit back to the Great Ocean Road in 3 weeks. Stormy weather was predicted, along with lots of rain, which l encountered along the way as the storm rolled in whilst l made my way to Port Campbell. The rain continued through most of the evening, but fortunately there was a small break in the clouds near the horizon which was enough to allow the beautiful sunlight to burst through and light up the cliffs and rock stacks, it was lovely to watch it unfold, than after the sun disappeared below the horizon we were left with a small burst of colour to finish of the sunset shoot.

The conditions were made for photography and l was grateful for a colourful sunset. Below are a few images from my latest shoot.

Loch Arg Gorge, Gibsons Beach.

Last weekend turned out to be really good weather for photography. l drove out to Port Campbell on the Great Ocean Road, previously access to Gibsons Beach was closed off due to falling debris (eroding cliffs) and l was keen to get back there and shoot some seascapes and get my feet wet. As well as a visit to Gibsons Beach (sunset) l also decided to do a sunrise shoot at Loch And Gorge and The Razorback and sunrise turned out to be really nice indeed, lovely colour and cloud formation.

I have attached a couple of images from the weekends shoot.
