2014 Retrospective: Low-Output Year, but Such is Life

While we are not quite done with the year 2014 yet, it is close enough to publish a retrospective of the year from a photographic perspective. Firstly, it was my most low-output year on record; but with other commitments and interests, and a waning interest in photography, I can live with that. I only published... [more]

This is an awesome sunrise on Mount Mee, north-west of Brisbane in... [more]

Cape Town and Table Mountain

During our short stay in Cape Town in October of 2012, during the first few days we could barely see the summit of Table Mountain, due to the 'Tablecloth' - a large formation of cloud which blankets the mountain.

Spencers Creek: The Recce Shot
