Feeding the birds

Peter was the centre of attention at Queen Mary Falls on Sunday.

Bindarrabi goodness

Some more photos from last month’s adventure near Killarney on the NSW/Qld border. The ABC sent me off to get some photos on Doone Wyborn’s 800-acre property, which he and his wife Carol are planning to turn into a co-operative rural landshare community. Check out the Bindarrabi website here.

Spy game

In the course of my job as ABC News photo editor, I often have to come up with ‘generic’ photos¬†to illustrate stories that don’t have an obvious image. I was particularly happy with this morning’s CIA effort. Sunnies + dark room + computer screen + flip horizontal.

Noisy miner morning

Got really close to this little fella this morning at Southbank. Shot at 105mm.

Fun with lights

My nieces and nephews had some fun with sparklers and an external flash over the weekend. I had fun too!

South of the border

Had a couple of nights camping just south of the NSW/Qld border. Down past Boonah and Killarney. All I can say is… Bloody beautiful!

Starry (cold!) night at Boolumba Creek

It was the night before I set off on the Conondale Great Walk in the rainforest near Kenilworth. It’s a wonderful spot by the way, and quite a gruelling bushwalk. On the cold night around the campfire, I did some rudimentary light painting with my head torch.

Kakadu: Yellow Waters at Cooinda

A few photos from a sunset cruise through the Yellow Waters wetlands last Sunday. It was such a beautiful spot, but a strange feeling knowing that a man had been taken by a saltwater crocodile just the day before. Thoughts are with his family.

Beaudesert Campdraft

The ABC sent me to the Beaudesert Campdraft on Saturday. It was my first taste of campdraft, a unique Australian sport that shows off the horse skills of the competitors. The riders “cut out” a young cow from a herd and then muster it through a series of obstacles. It’s great stuff.
