Outback Convertible

No roof, no doors and not roadworthy. 

Once you leave the larger towns in Cape York, perspective changes and you discover things that you would never see in the larger towns. This heavily modified 4 wheel drive would never   pass muster or a roadworthy in Cairns or Cooktown but up in the cape country all things are possible.  This picture was taken at Hann River.

Please Enjoy

Emu in town

The Local Emu checks out the local Roadhouse 


In my travels I have seen a lot of things but never have I seen an Emu in the middle of a town (be that a small one in far north Queensland).

Just an amazing thing to see. A brief travel note  though not overly hostile these large birds can have attitude and I would always advise people to take care and keep you distance.

If you liked this picture you can buy my unusual Australian wildlife print at:

Australian Flower

Tropical Flower

One of the Great things about bing an Australian landscape photographer who specialises in Fine Art Photography, is that spirit of discovery that you develop whilst traveling the Australian outback. I love to travel and capture the raw beauty of Australia. If anyone can help me out with the name of this flower that would be great.

Every Australian Landscape Photo Safari has a beginning.

Australian Landscape Photographer on six Wheels

In 2010 I hit the road for a three month Landscape Photo Safari. I loved every minute of my trip.
Honestly you cant beat being on the road for an extended time, life is to short to watch fox tell .

It tests your tenacity and focus. Not just in Creating great Australian landscape prints but in surviving the outback.

I just love the sprit of adventure and discovery that you have on these trips. So much to see and do, not to mention the people you meet.

Please remember you can buy my beautiful limited edition Australian landscape prints from.

One of my favourite pictures, that of a small tree in a flood prone rock wall, central Queensland.

In search of great landscape photo's, I sometimes get stuck in the mud, not fun.

Hi everyone I was away trying to capture some beautiful Landscape photos of the Murray river area and managed to get my little car and trailer, all 4 tonnes of it hopelessly bogged and as usual I was alone. 

Did I mention to my surprise the mosquitos were amazing. I could not believe the size of my bites.


I almost did not bring the 4wheel drive recover gear, luck I did. Always good to be out of the mud.

A landscape photographer's life is not alway's an easy one

Ski out in blizzards to get that perfect photo.


Sounds awful but when there is a break in the storm you can get some fantastic photos. These are taken at Falls Creek Australia. I have skied away from the resort for about 6 hours and when the weather cleared I managed to get these images.

You don't get good photos from inside watching TV you must always go outside. .

Snow tip #1

Play around but as a good you usually under expose your photos by 2/3 of a stop.




Snow tip  #2 

Be prepared for any weather condition.

Australian Alpine Huts

Snow in Australia


Hi everyone, like most of you throughout the world you might not realise that Australia has snow falls and a seasonal alpine area. Yesterday I went cross country skiing 22km to take these pictures. I hope you enjoy them.

Wallace's hut,  Cattleman's Hut 11km of skiing from the nearest town. This hut is over 100 years old.
The Inside of the hut taken with a six second exposure, and yes I had to carry the tripod the 11km out to the hut and return.

Lots of hard work and fun

Australian outback animal?

Outback animal yes/no


Last year I was driving in the outback and discoverd at a distance what appeared to be a large animal, in fact it was a water tower for an abandoned train line converted to look like an animal of sorts. (Some people in the bush have just to much time)

The strange things you can photograph.


Creation is amazing, the things it can create and make. 

Man is the only creature on the planet to see things not as they are ( just a rock) but what he would like to think they are.

You can buy this on my website if you chose www.australianphotos.com.au It was photographed at the Devils Marbles in the Northern Territory. It is not my intention to upset people with this blog or to be offensive in any way.

It Is titled Hard as a rock.


Greed will destroy our planet.

Greed will destroy our planet.


I was traveling last week an I cam across this poster and thought how true. Forgive the quality of image.

I don't usually use Facebook or my blog's for political purposes but I thought this was worth sharing.
I hope you can read this, basically it says when we have taken everything off the earth we will only have money and you can eat money.

Lost Bus in the Desert


Some of the interesting things you see in the outback.


After leaving civilisation  last year I was amazed to find in the middle of the wilderness  an abandoned bus. This bus had been driven on terrible roads for 100's of KM  just to be left in the desert all alone.

The Unknown Orchid

Yesterday I was walking in the Dandenong's (500m high hills near Melbourne and was amazed to see an Orchid in flower. Being in the middle of winter and pretty cold  I was very surprised  to sight this. I believe this is a  Cattleya Orchid but am not sure can anyone help me with its correct Id.

The "SuperMoon"



SUPERMOON

“Aim for the stars, and if you miss, you may hit the moon.”  
Last night would have been a good night for that, because the ‘Supermoon’ was so big over Melbourne you couldn’t have missed it.  This was a cold, hard look at 9.30 pm through a 600 mm lens on a Nikon D4 camera.

One of the difficulties in being a landscape/wildlife photographer is maintaining a constant level of fitness. Why do you need to be fit you may ask? In a lot of cases you just don’t get out of the car and take the picture quite often you may need to walk canoe ski or even climb some distance. By its self this can be no easy task but with heavy camera equipment you can struggle. One good way of maintaining this fitness is cycling, yesterday I rode 140km. Apart from the obvious benefits, constant exercise helps promote a healthy and successful mind, as is reflected in www.australianphotos.com.au
