The striking basalt columns of the old Bombo Quarry under the tapestry of the night sky.
Far enough away from the lights of Sydney, clear skies allow the Milky Way to shine brightly over the temple-like structures below.
The majestic sights of Uluru and Kata Tjuta from the air, illuminated by the day’s first rays of light.

I returned in the evening to beat the crowds at this popular snapshot location, and chose to capture the falls from a different angle, far away zoomed in with my telephoto lens. And although I’m a fan of moving water and long exposures, I opted not to here, and instead froze the falling flow to highlight the sheer power of the falls.
The striking Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon in southern Iceland, which forges its way through the countryside for 2 km. I used a polarising filter to cut down the glare in the snaking river, and a long exposure to smooth out the flowing water.
On the final stop on our road trip through NSW, we paid a visit to an old favourite photography location of ours, the Sugar Pine Forest at Laurel Hill.
Beginning their life as a forestry plantation in 1928, the Sugar Pines are now reserved and protected due to their shear size and grandeur, towering over the forest floor below. We ventured into the forest just after sunrise with the sun rays beaming through the forest, bathing the pines in a magnificent golden light.
The majestic Lower McLean Falls in the lush Catlins Forest, tucked away in the south east of New Zealand.
