Tortured Trees

Tortured Trees

Dead trees frozen in mid dance under the shadow of Aoraki Cloud Piercer - the tallest mountain in New Zealand. Reaching out to each other in supplication was how I saw these wonderful sculptural trees.

Crux

Crux

A defining moment, a transition, a choice, a nexus point. What do we do when we have no choice - or when we have all the choices, but cannot decide?

I Could Have Danced All Night

I Could Have Danced All Night

What stories these battered and broken pointe shoes could tell, the hours of practice, the nerves before a performance, the adrenalin of the applause.......

Lake Pukaki, New Zealand

Lake Pukaki, New Zealand

It was a rare bright fine day driving past Lake Pukaki - it was so still the snow clad mountains were clearly reflected in the crystal blue water - and it really *is* that blue due to suspended glacial sediment.

Dreaming of Steam

Dreaming of Steam

A day out at a local vintage railway was a delight when the engine running was this gorgeous steam engine. Freshly painted, brass gleaming, flags waving jauntily and steam swirling around the wheels, it was a delight to transform a nice photo into something much more atmospheric.

Original photo kindly provided by Andrew Haysom - I wanted to focus on the find feather details and capture a different view of this lovely character.

Stark Beauty

Stark Beauty

Gorgeous lime green viburnum caught my eye out on a walk. Asking the lady at the door got me a bunch to bring home and capture in my still life studio.

Soft Pink Paeony Rose

Soft Pink Paeony Rose

My macro lens opens up a whole new world of tiny details the eye would normally miss - this is the edge of a petal in a pink paeony rose - a soft floral image with depth and interest added by a delicate textured finish.

Picked from a friends garden, the bright cheerful colours of this rose caught my eye.

Under The Full Moon

Under The Full Moon

I saw the full moon rising while driving and headed hope to capture this image of Shag Rock secondary stack. A long exposure of 1min 15 sec, which is why the stars are slightly streaky in the sky and the moon looks as bright as the sun.

Splash Landing

Splash Landing

My signature image, published in Awake Magazine and printed extra large and exhibited locally, this image bought home the magic of what photo artistry really was capable of.
