I cannot breathe, stabbing thoughts, i don’t hear my heart beat.
Along the way so many may cross your paths, some noticed and some un noticed, I absolutely enjoyed encountering this living creative full of confidence. Ha, an amazing place suspending in time and definitely it’s own charm. Want to checkout more of my work?
I have always believed that when you look at life in reverse all is as it should be, while mostly I like to travel back to fond memories and moments, sometimes you need to look back as a reminder never to make the same mistake again, Moments deep within can be blinded by a false trust, i was so busy admiring through the lens that I didn’t see the water creep up behind me, left standing on a meter long island, i was drawn in, peaceful in a trance and forgot about the tide coming in, with a smile on my face I walked through the water not even feeling the cold. Thank God for reality checks.

Grantville on 3 different days at 3 different times! I love stopping by if i am down that way, although I do check my tides, it’s always great to see how its presenting itself on the day, wild water, sand that I sink in, yep i got stuck, or tide just at the right height, calm waters and a beautiful sunset.
When everything aligns perfectly, I don’t normally photograph people homes, but I couldn’t resist when I turned to see the light shinning on it, just as well! the tide had come in so fast that there was not much to stand on, oh well boots were wet anyway, on the upside I have good friends that live near by and I have sent her a copy to show the owner, only right I send them a copy if they want it. 3rd time lucky in the last two months to get the shots I was after, at just the right water level, I was there the day before and the tide was all the way out.
Each side had it’s own unique Buddha, these temples were built by families to worship together.
Bagan is an ancient city in central Myanmar (formerly Burma), southwest of Mandalay. These amazing temples are the main attraction, there are thousands of them spread across the plain, each so very unique. A great time to view all of them is at sunrise from a hot air balloon or you can climb up most of them, but get there early to get a front row seat, no easy to climb up with gear on your back, they are steep! Sunset is also spectacular to witness, there is a man made tower, for a few bucks you can go all the way to the top and thankfully plenty of room to watch the golden sun go down, it was an amazing day to explore.
Another great stop off along the way …….
The Yallourn W power station commenced operations in 1974 with four generating units commissioned between 1974 and 1982. Yallourn W represents the last in a long line of generation plant at the Yallourn site, with initial power generation commencing in the mid 1920’s.
Every hour 2400 tonnes of brown coal is used to boil water into superheated steam to drive four turbine generators. These turbines have a combined rated capacity of 1480 megawatts of electricity which is enough to supply around two million homes. The power station employs a closed loop cooling system utilising hyperbolic cooling towers.
I love the little treasures the locals are more than happy to share with you, a stop off at Cafe Latitude for very late brekky, we had a few hours to cruise around before sunset. Briagolong, Gippsland, Victoria.

A great morning out today with the last of the stunning colours at Tieve Tara Gardens, Victoria, a little chilly but well worth a day in nature. Here’s my spin on it.

We have all faced obstacles in our life that can appear like Mount Everest, we sit at the bottom and wonder how on earth will we climb it, every step can be a struggle, we can walk around it, through or face it and rise above it realising it’s a blessing in disguise, just another opportunity to grow. Every problem has a solution when you look through the eyes of love and possibilities.
This for me was truly the most spectacular flight I have ever taken, from Paro, Bhutan to Delhi, India stopping in Nepal, for 40 minutes we travelled along the Himalayas, every window seat was taken so I walked to the back of the plane and the staff from Druk airlines were kind enough to allow me to shoot from a tiny window, just enough for my lens to fit, I was blown away by it’s sheer beauty and it awe of the solid stand it takes.

14km hike to Triund, India. Creating my own mix of sunset and sunrise, permission to create my own canvass. Well that was a hike to end all hikes for me, going from nothing due to my ankle injury 7 weeks earlier, My guide decided to add 2kms to my hike without my knowledge, not impressed, barely giving me time to rest, i felt like a mule, only thing missing was a slap on the arse, 8 kms up, easy, moderate to you have got to be kidding me, but hey it took me 5 hours but I did it, he was only giving me about 15 minutes to enjoy the view to then make our way back down, one I know i wasn’t physically capable, two, Im not leaving after a hike like that, not really prepared I chose to stay over night, so as you can image it was a little cold once the sun went down. I really didn’t need a guide but thought it might be the safer option, meh i could have done it on my own. I rarely take tours but sometimes it’s insisted, I only had come in the night before, not much sleep made a snap decision in 15 minutes to take off. Im glad i did as it took me nearly 3 and a half hours to get down 6kms, the terrain is rough and sometimes slippery. If the guide didn’t carry my gear no doubt it would have taken longer and i may have pushed him over the edge, he kept yelling at me, ‘you must make life hard” I so was going to bitch slap him lol well his boot camp style was rough but I did it with minimal stops and a shit load of water, bastard! So bitching over, it was absolutely amazing to face the mountain, watch the sun go down and rise again, sleeping 3 metres from the edge…..freezing!!!! To his defence he did help me on the way down. my hips were about ready to pop, thank God, I made it just in time. You can purchase your copy here or contact me directly.
