Torquay surf.


…seas at Torquay.

Near Torquay, I captured this wave as it broke

making it appear larger than it actually was.

This scarred African landscape depicts other Victoria Falls sites

created as the Zambezi River eroded away the rock face

of previous fall sites.


The Devil’s Cataract, in the foreground, and on

the Zimbabwean side of the Falls is said to be

where the current falls are beginning to erode

the rock face thereby creating a new Victoria Falls.

At 7cm per year, we will be visiting the current site

for many more years.


Mother nature appears to be holding the sun,

not wanting it to rise from the water.

A spectacular rural sunset.

I think my photographic groove

is Corio Bay Sunrises.

Once a week, usually, MGW

has breakfast with her father.

On these mornings I usually head out

to see what nature is offering.

My first port of call is Griffin Gully,

part of Corio Bay, to capture the rising sun.

I never know what to expect although…

…I am always hopeful that there will

be some colour around.

However, heavy, foggy mornings can

also produce great images.

This image is certainly among my favourites.

Rural sunset


Beautiful eyes


Enjoying the Gibson Steps Beach


Light up an evening sky.





This image is definitely a favourite.

Fortunately, or perhaps, unfortunately, visitors

are longer allowed to do this,

so I have been told.


There is nothing like a good rural sunset.

No smog, no noise and the sky

awash with colour.

Students at Work

People/portrait photography

is one of my favourite genres.

These two were very friendly and had

a good chat while we drank our coffee.


Sadly the advent of the internet has

put many offside when it comes

to having their photo taken.

This young (Tahitian) girl would be in her forties now.

It is her eyes that grab my attention

the golden hour

In photography, the golden hour is 
the period of daytime shortly after sunrise or before sunset,
during which daylight is redder and softer than
when the sun is higher in the sky.
