Road Trip and Competitions…..


 

A great couple of days away, off to Warrnambool with my daughter for her gymnastic competition, so we thought we would leave a day earlier and have a little adventure. So windy, a lot of rain and bloody cold, even with 5 layers on, I can’t find one of my jackets!! She even gave me a hall pass to go shoot while she competed, pass on the hall pass, Love equals compromise and that we did……_DSC2658

Through My Childs Eyes


A quite domestic day for me, I love that my little one brings things into our home and lovingly  displays them around the house, sometimes only noticed by me when cleaning up, a gentle reminder of the small things we take for granted that make up this beautiful world we live in. Capturing a little abstract of it for her…To some a weed to others beauty._DSC1815-Edit

Reddell Beach, Broome, Western Australia


Slide Show of Reddell Beach

Reddell Beach was on my list, although i was quickly told i needed a 4 wheel drive to get there, another sigh…Chatting to a local in the morning still desperately trying to find a battery charger, another offer to borrow a camera, so I decided to invite her along for a drive, I told her I really wanted to go there, she’s like it’s fine, we’ll go, nervous as anything and after much debate I thought yeah lets to it, thankfully it was only 3 to 400 hundred metres of unsealed road, phone footage is hilarious, just go around the water, up the side! wtf! well to my delight we were there in no time, finally clouds, a slither of battery left, no live view for Big Nik, off i went, completely lost in the ocean, I heard her say, time for food, you see why I like to go alone right? I went down the next day missing the turn but was on the other side of the rocks i was yet to explore, the beach to myself only a few people, a little wave at each other and back to our own thoughts, I was thanking God that my battery was still going, and then the last shot came and went and the battery flashed, i was so grateful to get anything at all, images are photographed with My Nikon and a borrowed Olympus, actually nice working with two cameras, one for long exposure and one for happy snaps. I packed up my gear and found a rock pool and just sat in there for ages, closed my eyes and felt the warm waves rush over my body, just heaven….One of the things I loved about Broome is it only 10 to 15 minutes to any of the beaches/town from Cable Beach.

Cape Leveque


After a 2 hour scenic flight we finally arrived at Cape Leveque, with little time, a 10 minute walk through hot red sand down to the beach, I didn’t quite make it to the little island, one can only run so far with gear, I didn’t get time for a swim although I did feel that warm water rush over half my body, It was just beautiful.

My original plan was to either drive up myself, mmmmm “not without a four wheel drive “they said!! I looked into a tour but that particular one was not running, A flight up and back, although turned out to be the perfect option…_DSC1041

Cable Beach, Broome, Australia


I finally made it! 7 years in the making! Broome was the last on my list of cities in Australia, now it’s become the top with so many other places I want to visit, the more you travel, the more you realise how much you haven’t seen. I am so very blessed to have done any. I remember telling myself, it will always be here, I’ll do it once I settle back in Australia, And so I have from 2004, mostly family trips. 1st trips to Sydney, who remembers Mystery flights, I thought it would be funny to send ourselves postcards and so we did. Of course a week later I forgot all about it and smiled when my mum said there was a postcard from a Silvia, hahahah, I called to let her know i was there and she didn’t believe me!

Organised Chaos


Oh this place was just magical!!! Nothing but the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks, it has it’s own heart beat that makes my heart beat faster, Just spectacular, I sat here for ages. I couldn’t help but walk up and touch the rocks, then did a runner and played with the waves, once you feel the water it’s hard to turn away from what refreshes your soul.
