Random Thoughts

The weeks that were are food for thought across the world, we had our inland tsunami and flash flooding with loss of life and devastation all over the state.  Our disasters are then followed by the earthquakes in Christchurch and now Japan, followed by the devastating tsunami of biblical proportions.

Loss and Gain (Digital Art)

I took this image at Cressbrook Dam opened for the first time since the floods, shut because of the landslides on the roads and the fear of further slips in the roads leading to the dams.  The church was an image I took of a church in Armidale last year and the model is Teegan who has modelled for me over the past year.

Went to Duranbah Beach near the Queensland/NSW border the weekend before last to photograph the Quicksilver Champions.  Left here some 3 and one half hours away to greet the dawn at the ocean.  The ocean is always uplifting.  After watching David Attenborough's latest on the origins of life can understand our facination with water and in particular the ocean as is in our DNA.  This dog obviously belonged to an early morning surfer and was keeping an eye on her master out on the boards at the break.

These intrepid photographers stood in this spot for most of the morning but think may have moved on as the tide was coming in...:))

The beautiful jade green waters of the beaches of eastern Australia

As the dawn slowly arrived, I managed to get soaking wet with rain squalls coming across the water every few minutes.  Will post some of the surfers doing their thing in a less than ideal conditions but was a privilege to watch the best in the world doing what they so so enjoy in the next post.
