Into the Labyrinth

No need to Dance the Magic Dance, to enter the labyrinth on the Pine Valley side track when walking the Overland Track in Tasmania. But with a bit of a climb there are amazing views of the surrounding ranges and wonderful lakes.

Well worth the side trip of you’re walking the Overland!

Rainy Days on the Milford Track

The Milford Track was closed recently for the first time this season due to flooding. Those of us trapped on the track at the time were held at our huts, but we did manage to escape for short day walks on non flooded sections.

Those bits that were impassable had water over head height and raging rivers across the track.

But Mintaro Hut is a great place for a 4 day, 3 night stay!

The Sunsets on a Summer Day

A rainy summers day on the Norfolk Coast gave way to a sunny afternoon and as the sun began to set there was a nice light cast over the cliff top fields.

I don’t normally go this crazy with the HDR affects but I sort of like the overly saturated feel to this to go with the sunburst.

No shelter from the Summer sun!

One thing that’s obvious when you’re in the outback is there is little shade from the sun – even the caves that can be found around the base of Uluru offer little cover at certain times of the day.

So always have plenty of water and wear sun screen if your in the desert!

Desert Sands – the Australian Outback


A second shot from the Mount Connor lookout along the Lasseter Highway.

Somehow on this visit managed to get two shots I was happy with – that’s only taken I think 5 stops over ten years here!

At some point I really need to get closer to Mount Connor too – maybe next time!

Uluru – The other side

Everyone knows the traditional shot of Uluru – taken around the sunset point and creating the distinctive shape. However, the other side is equally impressive and even better is you get Uluru with the mounds of Kata Tjuta in the background!

Always an amazing place to visit.

Mount Conner and the Sunburnt Land

I’ve been trying to get a half decent shot of Mount Conner from this roadside lookout for years – I think I may have finally managed it!

Mount Conner can be found along the Lasseter Highway – the road to Uluru from the Stuart Highway.

Calm and Chaos

One of my favourite spots in Sydney is the Botanical Gardens – always nice and peacful and a great contrast between the gardens and the backdrop of the buildings of the CBD.

Little Drops of Rain

Summer in Sydney this year was a little wet – don’t think the plant life minded too much though!
