. - 04.01.18 - And now back to my usual programming. This composition of one of my favourite rock shelves along the Victorian coastline is one I have returned to many times. Shooting it in various conditions, I have witnessed the dynamic and differing moods of this location. This image in particular was the first I ever captured of this scene. Taken whilst exploring the curves of the rock shelf during some beautiful, peach “Golden-Hour” light. As each wave crashes upon the exposed shelf-line the ocean water sprints across the rock bed, submerging the otherwise exposed rock shelf. . . . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #sky_hues #sky_marvels #mint_shotz #splendid_earthpix #ozscapers @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite @australia

. - 29.03.18 - The power of words from those you respect, I believe, is illustrated with clarity in their ability to make you wantto strive to improve. And with that continuous attempt to improve comes the release from the clutches of complacency. I say this with two photographers in mind, @jeff_freestone and @nathanmattinsonphotography Both Jeff and Nathan are tremendously talented at two parts of photography that I believe are my biggest weaknesses, images shot with a telephoto lens and images shot without water. So with that in mind, here is an image that was captured during circumstance of misadventure that forced me into both of my weaknesses. A morning in which I expected nothing from my images, but ventured nonetheless into improvisation and experimentation. . . . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #sky_hues #sky_marvels #mint_shotz #splendid_earthpix #ozscapers @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite @australia

. - 21.04.19 - Some mornings just seem to reach a profound level of intensity that all intellect and vocabulary is reduced to our most basic. Between exhalations of excitement amidst awe, three letters were on repeat, as if the morning’s soundtrack had become a broken record. “Wow” “Wow” “Wow” As the credits began to roll on this sunrise, @alexwise , @mattfinphotography , @luke_hasaart and I all grabbed our popcorn and headed for the nearest exit. Each one of us entirely satisfied with the show we just witnessed. . . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #sky_hues #sky_marvels #mint_shotz #splendid_earthpix #ozscapers @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite

. - 17.05.17 - Tasmania calling. Ever since my wife, Tahnee, and I set foot on a holiday in Tasmania two years ago a small part of our hearts was claimed by the beauty of this humble island state. We are well overdue to return for our next visit this September and we both feel it has been far too long. So suffice to say we are a little excited to return, this time with our son, and some our closest friends with their son. . . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #sky_hues #sky_marvels #mint_shotz #splendid_earthpix #ozscapers @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite @australia

. - 02.06.19 - The clutches of winter have truly taken hold in Victoria. The days are short and skies are filled with heavy low cloud every shade of grey. Yet, despite this seemingly non-escapable misery there are small pockets of the world that come alive at this time of year. A few weeks ago @alexwise and I took a day trip down to the dense rainforest of Victoria's Otway Ranges. With low hanging fog transforming the mountainous, lush landscape, the Otway’s offered us a maze of green we were able to completely lose ourselves in. . . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #water_brilliance #waterfalls #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #visitmelbourne #visitaustralia #longexpoelite #mint_shotz #splendid_earthpix #ozscapers @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite @visitmelbourne @australia

. - 29.03.18 - As much as it is incredible to try and challenge yourself, carving out and perfecting a new composition of a known commodity; or even discovering an entirely new location for yourself. But sometimes, just sometimes, it’s a bit of fun to roll up to somewhere you know and stop trying to be ABBA, and let yourself be BABBA. . . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #sky_hues #sky_marvels #mint_shotz #splendid_earthpix #ozscapers @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @eaerthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite

. - 04.07.17 - A 3km walk along a very well marked, albeit muddy, track in the temperate rainforest behind Lorne and Wye River brings you to Kalimna Falls. The lower of these falls is quite unique in that it has a shelf like lip that allows you to walk behind its curtain of water. Despite its close proximity to Melbourne compared to the more popular falls in Victoria, Hopetoun and Beauchamp, this charming amphitheatre seems to not nearly get the attention it deserves. Though I have been meaning to, I haven’t visited these falls in a few years. This instead is an image I captured a few years ago. . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #water_brilliance #waterfalls #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #visitmelbourne #visitaustralia #longexpoelite #mint_shotz #splendid_earthpix #ozscapers @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite @visitmelbourne @australia

. - 03.06.18 - One of my favourite seastacks found along the Mornington Peninsula. Although it wasn’t accompanied by a brilliant and vibrant sunset, I was absolutely smitten with the incredible contrasting light as the sun dipped below the low cloud shelf . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #ozscapers #ig_today #magicpict #amazingearth #universe_dope @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @longexpoelite

- 19.12.18 - A Wide angle lens is an incredible thing for really emphasising small shapes, textures and features. These elements that otherwise would go unnoticed within a scene, when placed closed to the lens become quite prominent in an images foreground. With this in mind when I arrived at this rock shelf I spent some time walking back and forth trying out various compositions utilising these finer textures to feature in my images foreground. This rectangular pattern made up of cracks in the rock shelf is one such foreground I found quite early in my search. After completing my search across the shelf, I felt the rectangular pattern was the most appealing to the eye. It was so small though, and required viewing from such a specific angle, that when I returned to compose my image I almost couldn’t find the textures again! . . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #universe_dope #amazingearth #sunset_stream #startrailchasers #milkywaychasers #naturelover_gr #nature_skyshotz #ozscapers #mynikonlife @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite

. - 21.04.19 - When it comes to tide dependent access, this sea cave is one of the most difficult and temperamental I’ve ever wanted to shoot. After stumbling upon it a few years ago, I’ve never been able to regain access, let alone shoot it in good conditions. All sorts of tide, all variations of swell, but I was never able to access it properly again. My one visit inside these basalt walls left a lasting impression on me. Burnt within the depths of my mind I developed an obsession with it. So much so that my fixation become a very familiar object of ridicule for @robmorellophoto After nearly two years though, on a morning shoot with @alexwise , the conditions not only looked brilliant in the sky but also the perfect tide height was due. It was time. . . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #universe_dope #amazingearth #sunset_stream #naturelover_gr #nature_skyshotz #ozscapers @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite

. - 29.09.18 - A very wet and cloudy day, last September, had the majority of Victoria on their couches watching the AFL grandfinal. But with the masses away from the roads, The Mountain Goat, @nathanmattinsonphotography , led @robmorellophoto and I through the back country of the Yarra Valley to introduce us to some of his favourite drops. The only thing missing in the day for us was a little bit of @alexwise humour. . . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #universe_dope #amazingearth #sunset_stream #naturelover_gr #nature_skyshotz #ozscapers @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite

. - 23.03.19 - Tomahawk. This is a sunset that tested my patience and fortitude in capturing an image I have wanted for a while. What looked like, when we arrived, brilliant conditions for a potentially colourful sunset, quickly seemed to sour. The tide was low, which was what I had hoped for. But there wasn’t anywhere near the amount of swell I wanted to push water over the scene. Only the occasional larger wave of the sets coming through every seven or eight minutes managed to create any water movement to my taste. And to make matters even more discouraging, the cloud atop the horizon looked to becoming thicker and thicker, as the ever-promising gap on the horizon vital for colour to appear, disappeared. It wasn’t until the sun crested past the horizon that we saw the faint glow and with it, the possibility of colour over our shoulders. Muted, on the horizon to our left, were the colours of soft vermilion and scarlet painting the tufts of cloud. With each gaining minute, the sun sank lower and lower, and the colours became brighter and brighter. Multiplying and spreading. A scene that had not minutes ago seemed to die came alive in an instant. The sky before us finally caught fire, ablaze in crimson and magenta. And with it was accompanied a set of waves just large enough to push the perfect dribble of water over my rocks. . . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #universe_dope #amazingearth #sunset_stream #naturelover_gr #nature_skyshotz #ozscapers @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite

. - 03.01.19 - It’s easy to feel stuck and stagnant, like you’re going around in circles and never really moving forward. But it isn’t until you actually stop and look back.

. - 22.07.18 - The quiet drone of rubber against asphalt. The savoury aroma of freshly ground beans transferring their warmth to your hand through a thin layer of glass. Cresting the hill as the light just begins to kiss the place where the world ends. A faint glow. And though it would not eventuate. It would not transcend. It did not matter. The corners of your mouth turn upwards, content. For this is today, and you are alive. . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #ozscapers #ig_today #magicpict @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @longexpoelite

. - 10.03.19 - Some mornings are just a little bit more special than others. This morning in particular @alexwise and I were lucky enough to witness this eruption of colour cover the sky. As we began our walk around the headland, the sky had already begun to glow quite vibrantly, a full hour before the sun was even due to rise. In the past this may have caused me to lose my head a little. But I had a goal. A solitary shot I had been wanting for a while. I’d captured it time and time again, but never quite in the conditions I was seeking. Instead of a hurried approach that morning, it was a slow and steady walk in with purpose. . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #ozcoastal #ozscapers #ig_today #magicpict #naturelover_gr #universe_dope @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite

. - 27.11.18 - With each step further down the banks, the world melted away into irrelevance. All sound seemed to be consumed by the canopy overhead, leaving behind only what was underneath. The soft sway of the fronds in the soft breeze as the water below bubbled and babbled down the creek bed. Tranquillity and solace growing in the quiet comfort. . . . . . #australialongexposure #nature_wizards #sky_sultans #meistershots #fantastic_earth #main_vision #jaw_dropping_shots #global_hotshotz #nature_sultans #longexposure_shots #special_shots #earthpix #nature_brilliance #longexpoelite #ozcoastal #ozscapers @nikonaustralia @nature_wizards @sky_sultans @meistershots @fantastic_earth @main_vision @jaw_dropping_shots @global_hotshotz @nature_sultans @longexposure_shots @special_shots @earthpix @nature_brilliance @water_brilliance @water_captures @longexpoelite
