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.

Uluru Everchanging

As Uluru is a sacred Aboriginal site, when visiting the National Park you need to keep to designated roads and photo bays. Some photographers might be a little bit frustrated by this as their ability to find a new angle is quite limited. However the way the light changes on the rock is simply incredible as we have seen over the last few posts.

Here is a compilation of how the light can change over a matter an 2 hours!

I hope you have enjoyed my Uluru posts! xx

The Lazy Photographer at Uluru

On our last night at Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park I was feeling pretty tired and had a bunch of shots of Uluru. As Matt ventured out to take photos I stayed in our campervan parked on the side of the road. This night however, the light looked different. I decided to set up my tripod next to the door of the van so I could continue to lie on the bed, warm in my sleeping bag!

This time I took some longer star trails just after sunset. I am glad I did – Uluru looked just magic.

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!

Uluru Afternoon

Recently my partner and I travelled to Central Australia to visit the outback and the stunning natural wonder that is Uluru.

We were there for four days and each day we were up an hour and a half before sunrise to get our prime position to photograph the rock in the early morning light and we stayed in the park all day until after sunset. We were therefore able to get quite a range of shots. Over the next few posts I am going to share some of the beautiful shots I took at the Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park.

This first photo was from our first afternoon. Just a regular day and a regular sky – a classic shot!

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!
