From drought to flooding rain

One of the things I love about going to the farm is seeing how much it changes over time. When I was there in January we were in drought, but since then there has been rain. Beautiful, nourishing rain. The farm is the greenest I have ever seen, the greenest Doc has ever seen and …

Feature photo – Red Sunset

Sunsets in Australia truly are the most beautiful in the world. With our beautiful trees, wide open spaces and endless skies sunsets of all hues are possible. This was taken on our farm in rural NSW, proving that you don’t have to go far out of the city for magnificent scenery. This is an exclusive …

Australian beaches – the best in the world

In my enthusiasm for outback Australia, I sometimes forget why I choose to live near the beach. Of course there are all the usual reasons – sand, sea, surf and sun, which, paradoxically, are the very things some people hate about it. But it’s more than that. The beach makes me feel good.

Gum trees, wallaroos, fence posts and sunsets. My favourite photos of the farm

While at the farm last time, on my own, I did lots of exploring, and went to areas I usually don’t. Normally if I want to go out on my own I have to walk, so don’t tend to venture far, but the recent addition of a quad bike meant I could venture far and …

Of drought and flooding rains

As Dorothea Mackellar noted, Australia really is a land of extremes, and one of my great joys is photographing those extremes. One of the photos I get a lot of great comments on is one I took on the Murrumbidgee when it was in full flood. It’s of a dead bush, reflecting in the water. …

Flowers

I got a new lens, so of course I’ve been out using it. What’s better than flowers to practice using a close up micro lens. It might not be spring any longer, but summer flowers are just as beautiful. Here are some of the photos.

From flood to drought (and back again?)

Below are pictures showing the changes in the dam at the farm over time. The first was taken in June 2012, then Christmas 2012, August 2013 and the last one in November 2013. That’s big changes in a short time.

Sunset and champagne

When talking about the most photographed icons in the world, sunset is rarely mentioned. Yet I think there are more photos of and more blogs dedicated to sunsets than to anything else anywhere. Whether watching it with the love of your life, with friends, or alone, a sunset needs nothing more than a glass of …

The colours of Australia

Australia is a country that gets under your skin. The red dirt of the outback is justifiably famous. The red centre contains some of the most instantly recognisable and visited icons in Australia – Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Watarrka. Three places rich in the dreaming that is at the heart of the oldest culture on …

Spring fountains

It’s definitely getting closer to summer, and you know what that means – finding water. It’s not always necessary to go for a swim, just the sight and sound of water has a cooling and calming effect. So here are some water features in Sydney city that help give it that ‘coolness’ factor.
