The light beyond

You may think I am a bit strange, but I don’t mind walking around  a cemetery at night. Actually I find it almost comforting, particularly this one because my late father it at this one.

This photo is very evocative for me as it seems to be saturated with symbolism. I hope you enjoy it.

Brae Lossie Stars

For the last two years, we have stayed at a farm stay in the Gingkin area of NSW. I have been so taken by the beauty of the stars there, I recently asked if I could take a shot of the early winter starscape. It’s the kind of place where major constellations are drowned out by all the other bright stars. Can you pick out Scorpious the scorpion? This is a link to the farm’s website. http://www.stayz.com.au/accommodation/nsw/blue-mountains/jenolan-caves/23675

Gingkin Stars

This shot was taken on a farm near the very small rural town of Gingkin in New South Wales. I love the way the stars come right down to the ground and you can see the telegraph pole way in the distance. It is a first attempt at stars so a bit of Photoshopping was needed.

The House of Opera

When was the last time you saw this aspect of the Sydney Opera House? They are rare, perhaps because its illegal for commercial photographers to shoot without permission from the Opera House Trust. For more information see here . Are beautiful things locked up for photographers where you live? Bondi beach here in Sydney is covered by a similar regulation.
