Time for a much needed break... I'm taking the next 3-4 weeks off, I'll be staying clear of most social media and using the internet as little as possible while I have some time off.

I'm doing a course at Curtin University starting Sunday and then after that I'll be working on strategy for both my businesses as well as taking some time to recharge my creative batteries.. you can only go so long before they are completely drained!

This was captured in Iceland on the Sony A7r, it is 8 photos merged to panoramic in lightroom. Original image size is 21,000 x 7000 pixels!

We only spent a very short amount of time in this region of Iceland, definitely an area I need to go back to and photograph much more extensively!

I wouldn't recommend getting knee deep while barefoot in any of the non-thermal waters of Iceland.. but that is exactly what I was doing to get this photo of Öxarárfoss in Iceland.

I'll share a behind the scenes photo shortly that shows me in the water :)

Exploring the far northern islands of Norway was a pretty awesome adventure, definitely checked off quite a few things that have been on my list for quite awhile... including experiencing the midnight sun, the sun didn't set for the entire time I was in Norway as we were inside the Arctic Circle. What experiences are on your "list"?

A huge congratulations to +Discover Tasmania this morning, they have just been awarded the Number 1 Island in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, as well as taking out the number 4 position WORLD WIDE in +Travel + Leisure magazines annual awards.

Very much a well deserved award in my opinion, there is just so much to do and see in Tasmania, I've been twice now and I'm working on the details for my next trip there in September as well as another one in January / February next year... I can't get enough of the place!

The Ice Tunnel
Crystal Ice Cave, South Iceland

Throughout all my travels, the one natural formation that constantly keeps me coming back for more are ice caves. These natural frozen formations have such incredible textures, patterns and color. And the beautiful thing is that every ice cave is different year to year. Have you been to Iceland in the winter?

Week 1 Plus Post

I've been having fun learning more about Blurs and Unsharp Photography this week as part of the new mentorship offered by +Alex Lapidus and sponsored by the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers (+Robin Griggs Wood, +Tamara Pruessner, and +Ron Clifford.) 

I've always been fascinated by this type of photography and took this opportunity to learn, grow, and expand my creativity. This week we worked on controlled blur and panning. So many of those photos you see out there make it look effortless, but I will tell you it takes a lot of practice to get something that approaches that level of effortlessness.

Week 1 Plus Post

I've been having fun learning more about Blurs and Unsharp Photography this week as part of the new mentorship offered by +Alex Lapidus and sponsored by the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers (+Robin Griggs Wood, +Tamara Pruessner, and +Ron Clifford.) 

I've always been fascinated by this type of photography and took this opportunity to learn, grow, and expand my creativity. This week we worked on controlled blur and panning. So many of those photos you see out there make it look effortless, but I will tell you it takes a lot of practice to get something that approaches that level of effortlessness. Lots of fun experimenting and trying all kinds of new things that are outside of my comfort zone. Best part was learning more about the capabilities of both my phone and DSLR. Wasn't sure I could do some of those things before and now I'm confident with those features. I just love learning new things!

Hard work, but worth it in the end. Many thanks to Alex, all of the helpers and to all of the other participants for the comments, support, and discussions.

Now I'd better get back to my practicing, there's already new assignment for this week!

How good are autumn colours! We're nearing the end of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere as we head in to winter.

A sneak preview of one my photos from last night.. was very cool, I headed out to South Arm and followed my instincts down a dirt track, happened upon 3 other photographers with a Kayak! So we took turns in Kayaking around the bay to stir up the bioluminescence for our photos... I'll do up a proper photo when I get home... around June 3rd

Went exploring in the Tarkine region of Tasmania today, managed to find a pretty awesome waterfall to photograph! 

Yes.. I guess this is kind of a selfie.. I needed a human element to show scale though, I swear!
