All that remains…

December 1, 2009

This is one of my favourite captures from Yorke Peninsula.  Wallaroo is a great spot with a great name. As I was wandering around looking for a good location to take some pics at sunset, these three posts and the colourful rocks caught my eye.  This was a 30 second exposure just after the sun had disappeared.  I was really enjoying taking the photos, capturing that dreamy misty water when a local bloke came down to where I was shooting and told me a little bit about the place.  I was stoked to discover that I was actually shooting the last remains of the original Wallaroo jetty which was built in 1861.  148 years later this is all that remains.


The Mighty Ghan

December 1, 2009

I recently got back from a trip on The Ghan for the magazine (article HERE if you’re looking to kill a few minutes 🙂 ) and this is one of the shots that I took of the carriages as we got off in Alice Springs.  The trip was great but when we stopped at Katherine and Alice I didn’t want to get back on….just wanted to get into a 4wd and take off in search of ‘perfect light’.  The second shot is Cape Spencer lighthouse on Yorke Penninsula in South Australia.  I have been guilty of bagging out South Australia in the past, I’m not usually a wine drinker so the Barossa Valley doesn’t really thrill me. When I got off the Ghan I decided to take off to Yorke Penninsula for a few days instead and was suprised to discover just how beautiful it is down there.  Will post a few more shots from that region soon.
