Colours of Glenelg

Glenelg

A few months ago I was in Glenelg in South Australia on a very stormy evening…I got SATURATED but waited around just in time to catch that light that seems to appear out of nowhere. The sky was almost purple with the dark storm clouds breaking just long enough for some sun to peek through before it finally set. And then…I got saturated AGAIN! I think I need to buy a shamwow for my kit bag 🙂

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.
