Northern Territory Roadtrip

One of the most amazing places on the planet – Uluru! There are so many amazing stories around the rock told by the traditional owners – the Anangu people. And it’s also an amzing place to photograph and look at with the changing colours throughout the day and the dramtic skies as storms pass over.

The Lake and the Mountain

The amazing Mount Cook on New Zealand’s South Island is well worth a visit for hiking, exploring and a bit of photography.

Even better, to get to Mount Cook you need to drive alongside Lake Pukaki which has an amazing blue colour which is hard not to want to photograph.

Put the two together and wow!!! Just an amazing area in New Zealand. Wish I was back there now….

Stormy days on the Milford Track

Continuing to look back to this time last year again on the Milford Track and a storm that would stick around for days and ended up stranding some of us on it at Mintaro Hut for 4 days and 3 nights with crazy raging torrents crossing the track and water over head height at various points along the track.

We were short on food and cabin fever did set in, but I was lucky I was stranded on the track! Others never made it on as DOC cancelled those due to start for a couple of days. I was lucky as I got to see this amazing scenery with stunning waterfalls falling into the valley from both sides.

If it hadn’t rained so much – I would have missed that experience!

The Storm Begins

Looking back to this time last year again on the Milford Track and after an amazing warm sunny day walking alongside the clear waters of the Clinton River the storm that would stick around for the next few days begins. Heading to Mintaro Hut the rain begins to fall and the waterfalls start to flow.

While it’s not always fun to hike in the rain the scenery and drama really comes alive on the track when the clouds darken and mist rises from the trees.

Hope anyone on the track at the moment it having fun 

The View from the Top

New Zealand and the view from the climb up Mount Ngauruhoe (aka Mount Doom) located in the Tongariro National Park. If you’re doing the Tongariro Alpine Corssing or the Northern Circuit and the weather conditions are right this climb is well worth the effort – even with the loose scree and somewhat sketchy descent!

Thorny Devil on Outback Roads

I drove over this spikey lizard when driving around @exploreuluru in @ausoutbacknt. Happily I spotted it before driving over so was able to avoid squashing it and turned the car around to take some photos.

It is of course, an amazing Thorny Devil! (Or Thorny Dragon)

Uluru

Back to February at @exploreuluru in the @ausoutbacknt and thunder storms brought lots of rain into the area. I’ve seen Kantju Gorge at the base of Uluru completely dry and also wet but during one of the storms water was cascading of the rock and a little later the area had so much water it was overflowing. I must have spent about an hour there just watching the area come to life, especially with all the frogs!

There’s something amazing about this place that will keep pulling me back

Cape Leeuwin and an old Waterwheel

Cape Leeuwin is South of Perth in Western Australia and mostly known for being the point the Indian and Southern Oceans meet,

There is also a lighthouse and nearby are the remain of an old waterwheel – the trough for which makes for, I think, an interesting shot!

Birld Life of Sydney’s Royal Botanic Garden

A good place to be in the afternoon in Sydney is the Royal Botanic Garden as the birds start looking for food. The Cockatoo’s as very friendly to the point they’ll approach your camera and attempt to eat it. They’ll also happily land on you so watch out.

Just don’t feed them – they have plenty n the garden.
