Misty Mornings Victoria.

I recently spent a few days over in the North East of Victoria. My aim was to capture some early morning mist in the landscape. With low wind and very still mornings there was plenty of mist in the valleys and mountainous regions of Yea and the surrounding areas. A pure delight to be out and about with a camera in hand.

Hi Friends,
A very unique perspective.
l am always on the lookout for something a little different from the Great Ocean Road. This location is amazing, off the beaten track and standing on a very narrow cliff face (shaking at the knees) whilst composing. The views are nothing more than awesome, with the wild ocean and strong breeze just about blew me over the edge. You really need to brace yourself whilst out at these locations and many times l ask myself ‘what the heck am l doing out here risking my life’ with so much corrosion and sections of the cliffs falling off, but here l am again living and loving what l do.

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.

Aireys Inlet

The images below were taken at Aireys Inlet yesterday, with stormy weather and rain predicted, l decided it was a great opportunity to be out photographing, with bucket loads of rain falling on my way there, l was hoping the skies would clear in time for sunset, but alas is was not a great sunset for colour. The images l captured lend themselves to more of a monochrome finish.
The highlight of the evening for me was seeing a juvenile fur seal, lying at the base of Eagle Rock, in all the years l have been photographing along the Great Ocean Road, l have never caught site of a seal. Has anyone else ever seen a seal along the Great Ocean Road?BTW, if you are interested in Learning the art of ‘Photographing Seascapes’, l run private workshops and group workshops at Aireys Inlet and Port Campbell, message me if you are interested.

The Razor Back.

‘The Razors Edge’.

Here is a recent capture from the Great Ocean Road. A slightly different perspective of the Razor Back, which is situated at Port Campbell, taken from an observation area that requires one to jump a fence. Participants on our Port Campbell Workshops are able to take in these stunning vistas, away from the regular tourist platforms.

Hi Friends,
A couple of evenings ago at the 12 Apostles on the Great Ocean Road. Turned out to be a really lovely evening, slept in the car with my (50kg) puppy Tahshee, both of us huddled in the back of the car and l must say he handled his first night of sleeping in the car really well, l was a little concerned considering it was his first sleepout. Now that he can handle it, there will be plenty more sleep outs ahead. Although he has to stay in the car whilst we are visiting the National Parks.
l arrived at the Apostles car park at around 7.30pm with sunset due at around 8.20pm, sat with my dog at the car for a little while than wandered of to take some photos and boy was l excited when l arrived at the viewing platforms to see the 12 Apostles bathed in beautiful sea mist whilst the evening sunlight was creating a lovely warmth to the scene.
In all the years l have visited the Apostles it is very rare to have sea mist engulf them, truly a sight to behold.
