A slice of paradise.

First light on Pantoneys Crown
Bushwalking takes you to some truly special places. I spent last weekend on Byangee Mountain in Morton NP, a place not often visited. The first rays of sun set The Castle ablaze in a pretty special way!
Somewhere on the Newnes Plateau....
I found this photo from a few years back on my hard drive, this is actually taken just before the storm that took out all power in South Australia. Certainly made for an interesting sunset 😅
Had an epic trip up to Pantoneys Crown last weekend, had a bit of everything including a fairly sketchy pass, temperatures down to zero with a heavy wind chill, slept under my tarp (not the best nights sleep I've ever had), and then an epic (and very windy) sunrise in the morning. Only had the 55mm (which is actually 88mm on my crop sensor), so I couldn't get the whole scene in one shot, but hopefully this close up of the valley shows the awesomeness 😁
The Milky Way over Big Red
This is the view from Folly Point, on the northern side of the Budawangs. On the left is Pigeon House Mountain, to the right is The Castle and Monolith Valley. The view is well worth the challenging bushwalk into this place, and the reward is looking into this rugged landscape devoid of human activity. I'll be posting more bushwalking and 4wd related stuff on this account, instead of just pure landscapes, hopefully you enjoy!
Apparently this is the longest footbridge in the southern hemisphere (whatever that means). Part of the Te Araroa Trail I walked last year.
Love it or hate it? I know this one will be quite polarising, let me know what you think! Check out my story to see the edit.
Do you have a secret spot? This is one of mine.
"Blue Lake" Bit of milk for your Saturday. No this is not a single image, it is a composite. Foreground is the Blue Lake from the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, sky is shot in the Australian outback, composited into a single image in Photoshop.
A very unexpected sunset.
Evening light in Kurnell.
"Path of Light" Photoshop is finally starting to make sense! This is a composite of the milky way shot in the Australian outback, and Mt Ngauruhoe aka 'Mt Doom' from Lord of the Rings, shot on the Tongariro Alpine Crossing in New Zealand. The creative process of making images like this is very heavily borrowed and inspired by @blazing_heavens, it is so cool to create my own images in this style! Let me know what you think, I am very interested in people's opinions on this kind of image.
I thought this would be an interesting image to share given @tassiegrammer's message over the last few days regarding the environment. This place is an unknown Waterfall and natural amphitheatre on the Newnes Plateau. It is absolutely beautiful, but I am sure it could be ruined if enough people found out about it and decided to check it out. Luckily, it is very difficult to access, and not marked on any maps. It is therefore a privilege to visit this place, and I hope it stays that way.
This one didn't fit the 4:5 ratio. Let me know what you think.
Nice view from Gibraltar Rocks in Kanangra Boyd NP. The 4wd track in was good too.
