Lunar Phenomena. Seamans Hut, Kosciuszko.
Lunar Phenomena. Seamans Hut, Kosciuszko. I just arrived home from a OOAK Extreme Adventure, after the 4 days and nights we covered around about 80-90 kms of hiking in alpine conditions to capture the sweet landscape of the Snowy Mountains nestled in the NSW Ranges. We were very lucky to experience the Lunar Phenomena. of a Moonbow or Halo which ever you prefer while shooting this sweet hut. The Halo is said to be the warning of bad weather to come, The tale continues with, the number of days till that moment can be predicted by the amount of stars inside of the halo. This occurs when the light from the moon is refracted by ice crystals in the higher atmosphere causing the halo effect you see around the moon. Product Number _KSP3952
The Horn, Mount Buffalo, Victoria Australia.
The Horn, Mount Buffalo, Victoria Australia. Mount Buffalo is home to some of the bluest mountains you may ever lay eyes on. The Horn sitting at an elevation of 1723 m above sea level at it's highest point on Mt Buffalo, runs along the sheer Wall of China. If you are lucky enough to view this area either at sunrise or sunset. The scene will surely treat you to a spectacular show of light, whispering, lightly, licking the tips of the mountain peaks with colour for only a few brief moments. Product Number _KSP4764
St Georges Anglican Church, Mount Wilson, NSW. Australia.
St Georges Anglican Church, Mount Wilson, NSW. Australia. St George's was consecrated in 1916, and was served for many years by the Rector of Mt Victoria and Hartley Parish. One or sometimes two services were held each month, with an occasional christening or wedding. The Rector would quite often visit the folk living here, arriving with the mailman, or later in a hire car, and then walking around the village on foot. People still speak with great warmth of the Reverend Dorph, who in the 1930s and 40s provided understanding, humour, compassion and learning as he visited the people of this rather isolated community.

Misty Morn, Mount Wilson NSW.
Misty Morn, Mount Wilson NSW. The idea to capture a black and white graveyard came via a customer who was wanting me to photograph it for him. A dark moody misty graveyard was the description. Not as easy as it seems. I visited many a graveyard and shot off many frames. Then finally a year of looking and shooting came together. Lucky The nice gentleman waited until I captured the perfect shot for his needs. Product Number _V9A8156
