And Then Came The Floods

Visions of a post apocalyptic world.

Bannockburn Lagoon, Victoria

Bannockburn Lagoon, Victoria

A tranquil haven next to a busy highway, this lagoon is peaceful and beautiful. As soon as I saw it I had to go back and take a photograph. The serene reflections called me and begged to be photographed.

SPLASH!

SPLASH!

Natures power - stormy weather on Melbourne's bay forces water up between the boards on the jetty. I stood in fascination as the water pushed its way upwards time and time again.

Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound

Hooded Terns rest briefly on the seawall before heading home for the night. The sunset lights up the sea in a last brilliant display of colour.

Beach Babes

Beach Babes

The sun was setting as these two adorable little girls splashed and played in the shallows. They made me think of those old illustrations in children's books and I had to photograph them.

Feeding Frenzy

Feeding Frenzy

Gorgeous koi fight for food in Kuta, Bali. The vibrant colors and swirling water entranced me.

Blue Moods

Blue Moods

The Bolte Bridge in Melbourne. Photographed with intentional blur to give it an otherworldly appearance. The colors in this are what makes it for me. The blue is mesmerising.

Neon Sunset

Neon Sunset

Brilliant colors provided by nature are enhanced and highlighted by the work done to this photo. There is nothing like a beachside sunset.

Sun's Fiery Kiss

Sun's Fiery Kiss

Passionate and vibrant colours light up the sky as the sun kisses the earth goodnight. This lonely bird was captured as he stopped for a rest on his way home.

Moody light. Boats at anchor. Daylight fading.

Chains

Chains

The grungy and well worn appearance of these chains caught my attention while sailing on a replica tall ship. Things that are utilitarian can be quite beautiful.

Silence Becomes Her

Silence Becomes Her

A quiet and pensive moment. Surrounded by greenery, our model takes time to contemplate.

Chey in Blue

With skin of alabaster And roses in her hair She had a hint of mystery And a very wistful air

Where is she from? Is she of this earth? Who would know. She stands quietly waiting for events to unfold.

Where Do You Look For The Truth

Where Do You Look For The Truth

Seeing things that speak to you. Walking through the city and being captured by the appropriate juxtaposition of items and people. This is what I love about street photography.

What The Future Holds ...

What The Future Holds ...

Do we wish we could see into the future? Would we honestly like to know "what happens next"? I think that the uncertainty and mystery are part of what makes life eternally fascinating.

Cloud Walker

Cloud Walker

A moment of magic and mystery. A moment to suspend disbelief and watch the serene heron wading through the clouds as it basks in the light of the full moon.

Rainy Days & Mondays ...

Rainy Days & Mondays ...

Moody and introspective, this piece leads you into another world. Where is she going? Is the rain a cause for concern or a cause for joy? It is whatever the viewer wants it to be.

Tiny Treasure

Tiny Treasure

A perfect dragonfly has taken a moment to rest its weary wings. Delicately poised on the metal scroll it stills for a moment before taking flight again.

Basking Darter

Basking Darter

Peaceful and serene, the darter basks in the sunshine and lets the warmth dry his damp feathers. They keep the netting over the reed beds to protect the smaller fish and native reeds I think. The birdlife takes full advantage of the platform the nets provide to dry their wings after a fishing expe...

Game Over

Game Over

I loved the industrial feel of this. People leaving at the end of an Australian Rules Football game. Dusk, lights and silhouettes all came together to give this a mysterious and interesting feeling.

Flinders Street Station is an absolute icon in Melbourne, Australia. Heritage and history combine in a bustling rail hub.

My Melbourne

My Melbourne

Standing on the corner of Flinders Street and watching a storm slowly rolling in over the city, the bright green trams caught my eye. I have tried to capture the timelessness of Melbourne compared to the fast pace of daily living.

Flowing waves lead inwards and outwards. The colors and patterns are soothing and I find gazing at this one brings me to almost a meditative state.

Abstract #13

Abstract #13

This piece always makes me think of stained glass. Something about the vibrant colors, black edging and the way it looks as if light is shining through it. I love anything with blue and this to me is invigorating and has an awakening feel.

Roses Too Shall Die

Roses Too Shall Die

There is beauty to be found in everything. Life doesn't always give us what we expect but we can find a treasure in every moment. Faded roses past their best still have structure and fine lines that draw us in.

Green Is My Love

Green Is My Love

Flowers picked from the garden as a token of love, lie discarded. The colours are faded and muted. The hue is dark and the feeling is of beauty waiting to be discovered.

Daisy Dreaming

Daisy Dreaming

Daisies are simple flowers with a cheerful disposition! These daisies had a dreamy feel to me, almost as if they were turning their faces to the sun and their thoughts to happier places.

At The End Of The Day

At The End Of The Day

What remains at the end of the day? Is there a promise of golden times and peaceful freedoms? Does adventure await - a time to throw off the shackles and step wildly into the world? Is it real or simply an illusion? The only way to find out is to make that trip up the escalator and see where it...
