Month in Review: May and June 2015…Back from a long absence

Posted by on Jul 6, 2015 | No Comments

It has been a long time between posts, probably oneof the longest breaks that i have taken unannounced. Life has been a bit crazy over the last few months and it looks to continue. The end of May was a bit of blur and most of June was spent in Europe: Gothenburg, Stockholm and London (lots of pictures to come) and on top it it all was the usual 365 Project images. To help catch up have decided to post images from both May and June in one hit.
Life in May (which has become a bit of a blur for me). As always click through for larger and for the rest of the album.

June’s collection is a lot smaller with a lot of images for the 365 Project being extracted from my Europe pictures which I am still editing and sorting.

Chasing Water, Belmore and Bombo

Posted by on May 30, 2015 | No Comments

Over the last two weekends I have been able to get out and about with the camera. Partly because I have needed to relax, and partly to get back into the groove with taking photos as I have been feeling out of practice lately. However, the theme for the last fortnight has been chasing water:

Belmore Falls

Bombo – I was also testing the Tiffen ApeX IR blocking 10-stop ND

Wine Country, Centennial Vineyards April 2015

Posted by on May 23, 2015 | No Comments

A few weeks ago I managed to slip away from the city and enjoy a drive down to the Southern Highlands to visit another, less well known, wine producing area that is an easy day trip from Sydney. In particular we visited the Centennial Vineyards, indulging in a coffee in front of their log fire before plundering their cellar to stock up mine.

We then proceeded to take the coast road home, stopping off at Sublime Point to enjoy the views on the relatively clear day and finished the day with a few quick snaps under Tom Ugly’s bridge.

Month In Review: April 2015

Posted by on May 16, 2015 | No Comments

The fourth month of 2015 has crept past, and we are already deep into May. I guess it is as good a time as ever to share the pictures from April. On the positive side of things, despite my inability to post regularly, the 365 Project is still going well.

ANZAC Day 2015

Posted by on Apr 25, 2015 | No Comments

Lest We Forget. This year marks 100 years since the original ANZAC troops waded ashore it Gallipoli and Australia faced its baptism of fire. Although a century has passed, today we find that Australia has troops deployed across the globe and the tradition of celebrating the return of our servicemen and servicewomen as relevant and important as ever.

I was lucky enough to snap some images from behind the scenes of the annual ANZAC day march in Sydney.

Wentworth Falls Lake, Autumn Colours

A few weeks back I managed to sneak off to take some photos. The weather was fine and autumn had started to take hold, bringing with it cooler weather and nice colours. Here are some of the pics.
