Dusk at The Entrance

We have just come back from a few days on the Central Coast of New South Wales. While we were there, I managed to get some dawn and dusk seascaping and some location recce done.

St Peter's Anglican Cathedral, Adelaide

On the way back to Adelaide from a long weekend spent in the Barossa Valley, we noticed the looming structure of St Peter's Anglican Cathedral as we approached Adelaide city from the north. We pulled over and decided to go inside. We were warmly greeted by one of the custodial staff, who gave us some... [more]

As I related in my previous update, I was fortunate to have one of my seascape images selected for the September, 2011 cover of Australian Photography magazine. What I did not mention is that there was something else in the making with regard to the magazine. One day in August I received a call from... [more]
