The success of my Bendigo War Memorial photo taken a few years ago has been nice, being published a few times, especially in the UK magazines. I also threw it up for critique a while back and based on that critique I have made a second edit of the original HDR photo. To describe the changes I decided to correct the lens distortion to make the building more realistic. Initially I really liked the perspective created by the lens distortion, but wanted to see an edit with this corrected. This was the main correction. I’ve also extended the width to […]

Starting in 2011 I took a 5 month journey through Australia and at the end of that 5 months took a 3 week break that ended up being a life changing sliding door for me. Fast forward two and a half years and now I find myself in Sumatra working on and donating my time to the worthy cause of endangered animals and humanitarian issues around Sumatra. I still have a mountain of unedited photos and videos from my time through Australia and I have managed to edit 6 more in recent weeks. I will continue the journey one day […]
I found myself with some time to spend while heading north to the Flinders Ranges I stopped in at Burra and really enjoyed the history in this town. While there I ventured through some of the historical museums and soaked up what it might have been like to live in this day and age. Certainly not easy from what I gathered of the history and hardship endured in this town and of the region. The only thing this image is missing is an old guy whacking on some multen metal, shaping someones tool or a hoof for a horse. Love […]
As part of my Eyre Peninsula visit I had to visit Coffin Bay. I mean the name alone intrigues me. So after my time spent in the Port Lincoln National Park I headed west to reach Coffin Bay on the south west side of the Eyre Peninsula. Coffin Bay is a small town and one of many named by the early British explorers in the 1800’s. There are certainly some intriguing names situated around the Eyre Peninsua and Coffin Bay is one among many, as well as the humorously named Avoid Bay, which I didn’t avoid by the way. Having […]
After reaching my goal of Lake Mungo I had no other immediate plans so I decided to head south towards Melbourne and visit some of the historical towns on the way. One town, well it’s really a city, is Bendigo. Lots of history surrounding Bendigo so I found some free camp sites on the outskirts and spent a few days exploring the city and found some beautiful places/buildings to photograph while there. I enjoyed what Bendigo had to offer. I rode the old tram line to the old gold mine of yesteryear but didn’t enter as the price was a […]
Streaky Bay is situated at the north west end of the Eyre Peninsula and is very close to the start of the Nullarbor. When I reached Streaky Bay it quickly occurred to me that this was a popular resting point for people who have just crossed the Nullarbor or are gathering supplies and energy to cross the Nullarbor. At first I was struck by the beauty of the area. I have seen a lot of nice bays but Streaky Bay is certainly one of the nicer ones. I decided to hang around for a few days and went about finding […]
I had just reached Port Lincholn earlier that day. I had driven from Port Augusta to Port Lincoln on one tank of fuel in my fuel saving experiment. Buying fuel is obviously necessary but the most expensive part of my journey so I needed to find a way to conserve fuel better and by getting 400+ kilometers out of a single tank I had found that driving between 70-80km per hour is the perfect speed to save fuel.

I am about to head back to Sumatra, but I must not forget about Australia and the beauty within this amazing country of ours. Here is a night view of the Murray River with a gorgeous night sky.
