2013 here we come!

And every new year needs a new calendar.

Assuming the world doesn’t end, this will serve you for another year.

calendars, 2013

There are photos from around Sydney, the south coast, the Blue Mountains, and Western Australia. In my mind, their sequence creates the story of a year. Perhaps they create your unique story, too.


Before the great wall

At Bondi Beach as the sun was on its way down. It was a warm day, warmer than we’ve had so far this summer which has started unusually cool. This time of year there is a holiday feel starting to creep in and everybody here looks very relaxed.


Monthly Feature for April on Smallfox Photography

As promised here is the first monthly feature for member photos on Smallfox Photography.

This is Sugar Loaf Rock, by Jon Russell Staniland. It was hard to pick a winner but I chose this one for its drama and super-realism. I imagine being on those rocks as the waves threaten.

Not quite sunset yet, North Bondi takes some of the sun and fires it at my lens.


Australia Day at the beach – Austinmer

We spent Australia Day this year (January 26th) at Austinmer, on the south coast of New South Wales, below Sydney. It was warm to hot as we drove along and then we crested the hills and the comparitive coolness was like a breath of fresh air – well, it was.

As we drove back down the tree covered hills again, I at first thought that it was very odd that I could see nothing beyond the trees. It soon enough occurred to me that it was a mist or fog that was preventing me from seeing further. When we got down there, trying to find a place to set up amongst the crowd, I was amazed at just how thick the mist was, and it was kind of surreal to see people swimming with this mist about because I normally associate swimming at the beach with hot, sunny days. Well, it was quite hot, very muggy, and the water proved to be the best place to be, though the flags were narrowly placed so everyone was in a sort of queue. Swimming wasn’t much of an option – everyone just played in the waves.

If you ever get a chance, the south coast of New South Wales is a beautiful place to spend your time. The ‘mountains’ (in Australia, we don’t have much in the way of mountains, so we call big rocky hills mountains) come down to the sea, they are covered in trees and each cove has a small village-like settlement. As you can see from these pics, it is something (excuse me but I was just interrupted by a large Orchard Swallowtail butterfly in my home and had to help it out to safety) of a wonderland of nature!
