Being blessed with an amazing sunset and calm weather while camping in the Snowy Mountains during September last year was a highlight of 2014 photography-wise for me.

Having found these rocks and this composition near to our camp site earlier in the afternoon keeping the surrounding area free of my boot prints was a constant task as I continued to explore the area.

As the sunset lit up the sky I tried a few compositions and also shot frames to use in the star blend in my previous post.

A night under the stars

Whilst camping in the Snowy Mountains last September with some friends we witnessed an amazing sunset.

As the sun disappeared at this altitude the clouds stayed low in the sky taking on the reds of the sunset whilst up above the deep blue tones of the night sky became visible.

At this point there was something that I really wanted to try, so leaving my tripod setup and being careful not to walk through my composition I walked back to camp for dinner. Lucky the sky stayed clear for what I had in mind and a few hours later I set off to get an image when the stars were out above my chosen rock formation.

I hope you like the results.

Canyoning in the Blue Mountains

1-10-2015_Rocky-Creek_Canyon-1-flat-EditI was lucky enough to spend the day exploring one of the Blue Mountains beautiful canyon systems with some friends and amazing photographers.

These deep dark canyons glow with filtered sunlight and luminous walls of ferns. Capturing the scale and beauty of a place like this is next to impossible, it has to be experienced.

A first look through my images and this one stands out for me, an image of my good friend Jake Anderson taking it all in.

So my on going project last year was to photograph 100 sunrises, and I happy say I completed the challenge.

There were a lot of early starts (well 100 actually) and struggles to find new locations but looking back it was the best decision, I had a lot of fun doing this project, I shot a few nice images, and I ticked off a lot of locations that have been on my radar for a long time.

Please check out all the images over at 100sunrises.com

Time for some sleep ins and maybe a few sunset shoots

Cheers,
