  • Davy Jones Last Sunset

    from $160.00

    Open Edition
    While going to get something for tea I could see there was a opportunity to shoot a great sunset, I set up late pushed for time down at north beach, I chose a small rock to be the fore ground hero with the aperture set to 22's iso to 100 gave a one second shutter speed to allow the water to weave its magic around my hero. After enjoying the sunset and shoot it was time to down load the files, there were many good shots to choose from but this one with the eerie figure that looks like Davy Jones being drawn in to a whirlpool and beckoning me to follow him that stood out. If you look to the left of the figure there is a resemblance of the octopus creature the way he was depicted in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies to the right looks like a hand rising up out of the water beckoning one to follow into the whirlpool.

  • Lone Palm

    from $160.00

    Open Edition
    I took this shot in the Bungle Bungles I loved the natural curve from bottom right to top left of the picture the one solitaire palm tree in the middle of the shot I estimated it must be about 60 foot high so that would give you an idea to how big the rock face was, once polarized the rock face began to sparkle the sky turned rich blue.

    On a drive back from shooting Lake Tekapo, golden late afternoon light rays were hitting this gorgeous leaning pine tree 30 feet from the dirt track.

  • Old Settlers Hut

    from $160.00

    Strangely enough, this old cottage is located only 100 yards off the Dunsborough, Busselton Road, and in many trips to the area I had never seen it before knowing that this time of year fogs were more likely to occur, coupled with the soft early morning light, and the unique shape and construction of the old hut, made it totally irresistible to me.

  • Poles Apart

    from $85.00

    Open Edition
    I love the way the poles and lines frame this image and the tonal range is just stunning.
    In Māori legend, Taranaki is a mountain being that lived peacefully for many centuries in the centre of New Zealand's North Island with three other mountains, Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu.
    Nearby stood Mount Pihanga. Covered in a cloak of deep green forest she presented a stunning sight and all the mountain gods were in love with her.
    Taranaki dared to make advances to Pihanga and was reproached by Tongariro and a mighty battle ensued between them. The earth shook and the sky became dark as the mountains belched forth their anger.
    When the battle ended the lovely Pihanga stood close by Tongariro's side. Taranaki, wild with grief and jealously, angrily wrenched his roots from the ground and left the other mountains.
    Weeping, he plunged towards the setting sun, gouging out a deep wide trench. When he reached the sea he turned north and stumbled up the coast. As he slept that night the Pouakai Ranges snared and trapped Taranaki in the place he now rests.
    The next day a stream of clear water sprang from the side of Tongariro. It flowed down the deep scar Taranaki had left on his journey to the coast to form the Whanganui River. There are those who say that Taranaki is silently brooding and will one day try to return inland again to fight Tongariro. Quote from Wikipedia Mount Taranaki legend
    That makes the title "Poles Apart" even more apt and could explain from a photographers observations that when you photograph this mountain from a distance with longer lenses it always has a glow around the base of about 1/3rd like its getting up to go.
    I'll leave that with you to work out.
