Love My Rotto


Rottnest Island is surrounded by pristine waters and only a short trip from the mainland making it a great weekend getaway. The locals refer to the island paradise as ‘Rotto’. For me this photograph captured on the Fujifilm X-Pro 1, sums up the island perfectly. Pristine beaches, clear water and amazing views – what more could you want?  You can even see the City of Perth (which is my hometown) on the distant horizon!

Paradise found – love my rotto!

Chris and Charlie’s Wedding at Maitraya


I hope you enjoy this small selection of photographs I captured at Chris and Charlie’s wedding.

The wedding was held at the stunning Maitraya Luxury Private Retreat, located near Albany, Western Australia. If you haven’t stayed at Maitraya before I would certainly recommend it! The views are breathtaking and the accommodation is all class. Hey even Lady Gaga has even stayed there so it must be good!

The bridal party, family and guests were all fantastic to work with. I enjoyed photographing all the smiles and love for Chris and Charlie, so thank you to everyone who made this wedding truly spectacular!

Circular Pool


I could smell the freshness of the forest. A raging river forged its path through the divided valley. Moss covered rocks crammed against each other fighting for elevation above the banks of the flowing river. Downstream the chuckle of laughing kookaburras broke the faint roar of the fading rapid.

I was surrounded by my element, the ever-changing outdoors.

Flowing and moving in a circular motion a collection of colours lingered at rapid’s end. I cast my view down to see my rippled reflection. A traversing mirror stared back. I could see a well-travelled landscape photographer in his element.

The last light was due for a show, patiently I watched and waited as a stream of gold broke from the scattered mass above me. My tripod was set. The image was ready. The shutter pressed.

Awaiting The Wave


 

Iridescent clouds passed the reflective ocean tide. The lone paddle border waited with patience for the wave seemed a scarce occurrence. His gaze was fixed on the lonely horizon. The still ocean didn’t seem to want to break the glassy norm.

I could see his shoulders shrug with a sigh. Maybe it was a moment of relaxation or frustration, I’m not quite sure as he seemed to be somewhat transfixed in the moment.

Paddle ready the border balanced afloat the watery mass. From no where the glistening watery surface gained in height to form an elusive wave. A powerful strong standing stroke aligned the nose of the board to the beach. The paddler elevated gracefully with the energetic wave.

Awaiting the wave – the moment had arrived. The short thrill of a ride, a journey of freedom and escape.
