Crescent Head – Mid North Coast NSW

I met up with an old mate of mine landscape photographer Simon Beedle (watch out for this guy) for a quick road trip to the Mid North Coast of New South Wales.  We had originally planned a week at Fraser Island but cancelled due to the cyclones off the Queensland Coast and I have to say that im pretty happy we ended up heading south instead, we got some of the best light I have shot in very a long time.

This is a 10 image vertical stitch of Crescent Head.  Also there may be a new toy on the way but more about that one another time…

Cheers for having a look

A windy sunrise at Burleigh Heads

I had set my alarm for 4:50am in hope of capturing decent sunrise at Burleigh Heads.  When my alarm went off and I heard that it was pouring with rain and blowing a gale I turned it off and tried getting back to sleep… no victory today, wide awake and average weather at best damn it.  One of the benefits of living two streets from the beach is that I can see the ocean and get a pretty good idea if it is worth the effort of leaving the house.  I couldn’t see any inviting sky but I decided to go anyway as I had been wanting to work on this stitching business.

This is one of my first stitches with moving water and I think it is pretty good and the sky was also worth the effort in the end 🙂

The First blog

Hi and welcome to my blog

World Heritage listed rainforest and some of the countries best beaches all within an hours drive not too bad hey.  The sunny Gold Coast is where I call home and is an amazing place for any landscape photographer to live.  Right now its not all that sunny and the East Coast is coping a battering from ex tropical cyclone Olga.  With the weather being so bad what better time to work on some photos…

This photo was taken just after sunrise last week down at Fingal headland.
