This one from a sunset shoot at Lake Charm.
Some storm chasing led me out to Lake Tyrell, near Sea Lake Vic, where I was lucky enough to witness this tornado funnel. It lasted for around 10 minutes but never touched down, although still a pretty cool thing to watch.

Autumn is a great time to visit the Alfred Nicholas Gardens, in the Dandenongs. I also took a drive out to Mt Donna Buang and made this panorama of Cement Creek.

This on was taken on New Years Eve of 2012. I was near Mortlake, on my way home from the Twelve Apostles when this caught my eye. I just loved the low sun on the long grass.
I spent a couple of days camping out near The Twelve Apostles in the hope of catching some decent photos. I think I managed a couple of good-uns...
We decided we were due for a family vacation, so we headed across to Mallacoota on the eastern point of Victoria. I managed to take a few photos while we were there.

I entered four photos in the 2012 Epson International Pano Awards and was awraded four Bronzes.
I headed over to Death Valley, California to meet up with some fellow photographers from around the world. The five of us had known each other from the Fred Miranda photo gallery hosting website, and we made the arrangement to finally meet up in person. Bob from Canada and I had met in 2011, when he had a few days to spare on a business trip to Adelaide, and we headed off to the Flinders Ranges together, but no one else had ever met.
In five short days of exploring Death Valley together, we all became firm friends and had a great time. I stayed on for a few more days to join Jack, from California, on a trip along the Sierra Nevada as far as the town of Lee Vining. This area had been an old stomping ground for Jack, and he was a wonderful tour guide.
Left to right- myself(Australia), Jack Quintero(USA), Hans Meuter(Thailand), Dirk Juergensen(Germany), Bob Murphy(Canada).
The photo was taken by Bob's lovely wife Chunmei, who also joined us on the trip.

I took a trip to Mt Buffalo recently. Here are a couple of shots.
Some recent shots from the Mallee around my home town of Swan Hill. It's so green this time of year as the new season's crops start to grow.
Conditions looked good for a nice sunset the other afternoon, so I headed out from home to nearby Lake Charm to see what I'd get. I was glad I did because it turned out to be one of the nicest sunsets I've seen for quite some time.
Well, I'm back from what was a pretty amazing trip around The Kimberleys. I have loads of processing and film scanning to do over the next few weeks, but here are a few images I've managed to get together to give you a taste.
I'm packing my bags to fly out to Broome where I'll join a photographic expedition of The Kimberley led by landscape guru, Ken Duncan. I'm sure I'll have at least a couple of special shots to share when I return in late May. See you then!
