RUGGED BEAUTY

Zenith Beach, Australia

Sunday 17 June 2012

On a recent visit to Shoal Bay, I walked over the hill to the back beach facing the Pacific Ocean. Zenith Beach has a rugged beauty and on this day, very big seas. What struck me was the beautiful colours, from the water to the rocks.

GOLDEN SNOW

Mount Cook, New Zealand

Tuesday 12 June 2012

This was the lovely sight that rewarded me for getting out of bed early and braving the icy morning at Mount Cook. As the sun crested the mountain range, a golden glow lit up the snow covered peaks! Because I don't see snow very often back home, I thought this was worthy of a photo. What do you think?

GLOWING SAILS

Geelong, Australia

Saturday 9 June 2012

The street art at Geelong's Waterfront has a number of 'sails' which provide colour and a focal point for the water activities. I have always thought of them as sharks teeth because of their shape, but I think that would have been the last thing that organisers would have wanted water enthusiasts to contemplate, what do you think?

HDR FROM A SINGLE IMAGE

Friday 8 June 2012

People have been asking how I process my #HDR photos from a single RAW image. A quick video is better than a thousand words ...



BUILT TO LAST

Taradale, Australia

Thursday 7 June 2012

Taradale Railway Viaduct was built in the 1860's to carry the railway line between Melbourne and Bendigo. Early trains must have been much lighter than today, because intermediate iron piers were added in the early 20th century to enhance the bridge’s load-bearing capacity.

THE BOAT HOUSE

Akaroa, New Zealand

Friday 1 June 2012

I find images like this relaxing, looking at the cloud cover on the hill tops, autumn leaves on the trees, still water in the bay, small yachts sitting patiently for their owners, and beautiful reflections of the whole scene in the foreground. What do you think, relaxing or not?
