Outback Textures

A fellow blogger commented on my Desert Cars post that ‘Beauty can be found anywhere – it just takes the right person to find it’.

And even amongst the dry desert, beautiful textures can be found.

The world is your canvas.

Sunset Fading Fast at Uluru

As the sun approaches the horizon a brilliant red is painted on Uluru. There is only a small window each night when the red looks this good! It occurs when the foreground is completely in shadow. It is quite the sight to watch the shadows take over the rock!

This shot was taken at the Uluru sunset bay with about 100 plus other people all crowded into this one area. You would never imagine that there were so many eyes witnessing its beauty from this image. It makes me feel like I am the only one there!

A Few (Less Obvious) Photos From Paris

Falling for Paris

 

I visited the city of love in November 2009 and was lucky enough to spend two weeks in Paris with a local family. Paris is an incredible city. You can’t help but fall in love.

I have thousands of photos, most of them happy snaps. I wanted to share a few of my ‘less obvious’ photos of Paris that enable me to reminisce about good times, cold nights and stunning lights!

Paris Lights

Sunset Statue

The Eiffel Tower seems to be everywhere in Paris. It’s always visible. There are so many opportunities to get interesting and unique shots. Every night, I would look out my window and see the sparkle of the Eiffel Tower – magical.

Eerie Chandelier

Funny enough, I had an incredible number of photos of Chandeliers. Why? Because they are so beautiful, and admittedly everywhere! This reminds me of something out of Harry Potter.

Christmas Shopping

Probably the best public Christmas display I have ever seen. A few weeks later I was in New York and I was more impressed with this tree, (size and beauty) than the one at the Rockefeller Center. Maybe because it was pink?

A Few Days In The Bay of Fires

Bay of Fires Footprints

The Bay of Fires is located on the east coast of Tasmania and is 29km ribbon of sea, surf and white sand. This area was given its name by Captain Furneaux, who observed a vast stretch of fires along the coast as he sailed past in 1773.

Today it is the ideal place to camp in an idyllic beach setting and take in the picturesque view. Maybe even take a few photos!

Australian Sunset: Part 5

Moana Beach, South Australia.

This day is going down as one of the best in my life! It was a very, very hot day and there was nothing else to do, but spend all day at the beach. The water was so inviting and we swum well into the evening, maybe even in between a few glasses of chilled adult beverages!

By the time this photo was taken, there was still hundreds people still at the beach enjoying this amazing sunset.

Australian Sunset: Part 4

Long Point, Coorong National Park, South Australia.

Quite a windy day, there was not a cloud in the sky for most of the day. Approaching sunset, two planes flew over high in the sky leaving vapour trails to catch the evening colours. It made for a pretty spectacular shot or four!

Australian Sunsets: Part 3

Jack Point, Coorong National Park, South Australia.

This was the reddest sunset that I have witnessed. It just kept getting better and better. Unfortunately the diminishing light meant we had to get moving to find a place to camp that night. The best part of the sunset was witnessed from our car.
