Antelope Canyon is a unique desert experience.

What lies beneath the earth is quite a mystery, from above you would never guess that there exists a beautiful, textured slot canyon formed by erosion of the local Navajo sandstone. This was a moment of great anticipation, excitement and thrill. Having seen many photographs come out of this place by many others, it was now my turn, my turn to experience first hand and attempt to capture what inspired me to visit this place.

As we entered the canyon with camera in hand, I couldn’t wait to fire away. The beauty was everywhere, everywhere I looked was an image waiting to happen. But this canyon had more to offer, at first you are drawn to the curves, the colours, the shapes and forms but its not until the light beams penetrate the canyon that you really understand where you are. It was explosive, it was dramatic and I was there to capture it all on camera.

Great Southern Land

Wergaia or Werrigia is an indigenous Australian language group in the Wimmera region of north-Western Victoria. Twenty clans made up the Wergaia people. The Wergaia language was apparently a dialect of the Wemba Wemba language. The people were known as the Maligundidj, which means the people belonging to the mali (mallee) eucalypt bushland which covers much of their territory. Lake Tyrrell is part of the land of the Boorong clan of the Wergaia Language Group. The Boorong were famous astronomers, with their dreaming stories told in the skies reflected on Lake Tyrrell. I spent 3 days exploring this area and was so fascinated by the landscape I found myself walking for hours upon hours. Having stumbled upon these mud cracks in the middle of the day with the scorching sun beating down upon me, I realised a story was was about to unfold. The scorched ground and cracks in the mud with the classic Australian outback colours were right at my feet, this was a perfect scene and a perfect photo in outback Victoria, Great Southern Land.

Kerferd Road Pier works are underway

The almost 130 year old pier is now closed to public. After the pier was deemed unsafe for public use works have commenced to repair the structure. Steel gates are in place with a warning sign reading ‘Pier Closed’, but just before the order was given to reconstruct I wanted to capture the authentic appeal of the buckling structure. Getting out of bed very early and arriving before sunrise I was very fortunate to experience a moody and overcast morning with a thin layer of early morning fog just beginning to lift. The scene was just perfect for a classic Melbourne mood.
