Fun with lights

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

Signs of the times

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.

Hyde Road dog park: May 4, 2014

There were some great dogs out in the fresh, windy air today. This little bloke by the name of Diesel was the best. You can buy prints here.

Brendy’s aquarium: dining room fish

My housemate Brendy has built up an extremely impressive aquarium over the past couple of years. Check out a few of these fish. I apologise for the dirty glass in some of the photos, I will give the outside of the tank a clean next time :)

Blood moon: lunar eclipse

A couple of weeks ago there was a lunar eclipse just after sunset, which produced what some people called a “blood moon”. This shot was taken over the Rocklea Markets in Brisbane.

Royal visit to Brisbane April 19, 2014

The royal couple Catherine and William paid a visit to Brisbane yesterday, and they even made it easy for me and chose the ABC headquarters in Southbank. I covered the day for the ABC and got a few happy snaps along the way.
