I’ve been a little slack getting this one out. Sometimes life gets in the way but I felt compelled to revisit this image from the Temple at Uluwatu in Bali. Our driver Suburu and his kids had taken me down to Uluwatu for the day to take some shots of the cliffs and beaches around the area. Despite the crowds I managed to get a perch on the side of the wall overlooking the cliffs. Far below monkeys scaled the cliffs looking for an unsuspecting tourist to steal from. The holy site was littered with broken sunglasses and smartphones of their victims 🐒. We waited patiently for the sun to set and were rewarded with this incredible display of colours. Well worth the effort of sticking around after the masses had started to leave. Thanks Suburu for a great day out and thanks for your insights on the history and culture of the temple. It was beautiful and fascinating!

A different perspective on the cliffs at Finucane Island. Top down photography has really opened some new creative avenues. Hope you guys like it!

Throwback shot from before the cyclone earlier in the week. Can’t wait for more wet season sunsets but have some great dry season sunsets coming soon! In the meantime enjoy this one from the vault!

Green and purple algae, a few fish and some blue water. @adam_dowden_rossi I took my time posting these 🙄. Thanks for showing me around out here mate.

Another image from Tasmania a few months back. Again this scene has a lot of smoke haze but this time I used my Mavic to capture the moody sunrise. Hope you like the view.

Top down Tuesday! 😄
Been working on my drone photography and particularly the top down perspective. I’m not much of a fisherman but my friend @adam_dowden_rossi asked me out to his secret spot. It was great getting the car off road to trek out and find this remote fishing spot. It was great to find patterns in the landscape and try locating schools of fish for him. Unfortunately we came home empty handed in terms of fish (or maybe fortunately for the fish), but I managed to get some great images with some great company. Not a bad way to spend a morning.

This shot is from my trip to Tasmania earlier in the year. Something a bit different in terms of subject but I think it works nicely. The early morning light was fighting through the smoke haze of fires that ripped across the island state. I came across this small rowboat that looked like it hadn’t been taken out in a long while. A peaceful scene against a foreboding backdrop.

Sunset and seaweed! Been looking for locations along the Finucane coast and think I’ve found somewhere new. Let me know what you think. I’ve been playing around with some new Photoshop plugins from TK actions. Would appreciate any feedback.

Sunsets over the rock pools at Finucane Island. Took this shot at the start of last week. Between now and then a tropical cyclone blew through town and would have caused a completely different scene at this locale. I managed to get some shots of the squall at Cemetery beach and I’d imagine Finny would have copped a similar battering. Thankfully we’re all good now, but some others weren’t so lucky with flooding of their properties.

Another shot of Red Bluff but this time looking out towards the setting sun across Port Phillip Bay. The colors in the sky this night were absolutely incredible and I was so fortunate to capture them. I was also really fortunate to meet fellow photographer Lui from @uniqcliks. Always great to meet a friendly photographer who you can talk shop with! For this shot here I had to try and keep a couple of fishermen out of frame. They were happy to help with their knowledge of the tides while watching this show of natural beauty. At the same time I tried getting low enough to the water to capture the magenta colors in the water but not too low that I end up in it. Hope you guys like the end result! It was an amazing evening!

Had an amazing day out with my long time friend @jimmyforsyth. It was great to set aside a whole day for photography and catch up. We had scoped out this bay that was full of beach goers for the majority of the day. So we ventured around the cliff and had a bit of an explore. Unfortunately there was little to no cloud cover so the sunset conditions weren’t overly promising. So we shot off to the pub for a couple of hours and waited for the beach to clear out and the sun to set. I can’t say I was overly happy with most of the clifftop shots I took as the light was too harsh. As we headed back to the car the sun dipped below the horizon and offered up this orange glow that we had to head down and shoot. I’m really happy that I did. I’m even more happy that I got spend a rare day out shooting and hanging out with one of oldest mates!

Another shot from Tasmania from above! I absolutely love the color of the water down there! This rocky outcrop pushing out into the blue green water caught my eye. Hope you guys are liking these images as much as I like taking them!

My first shot from the Melbourne leg of my trip! I could tell we were I for something special with the amount of high cloud appearing this afternoon. So I took off from my parents place for the ocean. It was here that I had a chance encounter with another friendly and talented photographer Lui of @uniqcliks. Definitely check his Instagram out, he does some amazing work. This shot also means a lot because when I lived in Melbourne my partner and I would love to spend our nights at Half Moon Bay chatting for hours listening to the waves crash around the jetty. It was great to revisit this place and get some great shots of the area! Hope you guys like it too!

Was heading back to my hotel room after getting the sunrise shot at Penguin Rock when off to my right I spotted this creek leading off to this incredible vista of mountains and ocean. O had to stop and turn the car around. I got down to these rocks at the mouth of the creek while the sun shone through some of the smoke has that had blanketed the island. It was a perfect scene for some longer exposure of the waves washing over these rock while trying to keep my shoes dry. Hope you guys like it and are all having a great week!⠀

Goat tracks, cliff tops, azure water and eucalyptus skeletons. Loved the patterns and perspectives of Tasmania’s coast where the forest meets the ocean. Despite the smoke haze of this morning, the waters were blue green and revealed patterns of the sea floor. Love experimenting with this style of image and I hope you guys like the end result.
