Beach Shells and Seagrass
Sea shells and seagrass washed up on a beach with shadows highlighting contours of some shells. These images are very different and would be great for interior decoration, especially in a holiday home at the beach or a city apartment, where it could be a reminder of the coastal lifestyle. A real talking point!
Kosciuszko Main Range and Lakes
The main range walk in Kosciuszko National Park follows the Snowy River valley from Charlotte's Pass to the base of Mt Kosciusko. A short detour takes you to the summit of Kosciuszko before the spectacular walk into Lake Albina and along the main range. A second detour into the Blue Lake is worth it before descending to the Snowy River and back up to the tree line at Charlotte's Pass.
Insects - Cicada.
Cicada (family Cicadidae), shown here shortly after emerging from its shell. The female Cicada lays eggs on branches of a host tree and the newly hatched nymphs fall to the ground and burrow with their modified front legs. These feed underground on the sap in roots for up to several years before emerging in early summer for the final moult. Adults feed on sap of branches in the tree canopy. Their familiar loud calls are produced by two vibrating drumlike membranes called timbals.

These images are from both the Northern Territory desert area (Truck stop and Devils Marbles) and channel country in Far North Queensland (Old Garage). Australia's outback colours are simply stunning!
Chronological age and functional age are not necessarily the same. My images show that senior citizens generally are very active after retirement. Social activity contributes to the well-being of the elderly (as well as of those of other ages), and there are many opportunities for such activity. However, research has found that happiness in old people is not proportional to activity. Take a look also at my lightbox Grandparents and their grandchildren!
A sample of various outdoor images/structures.
Established in 1830 the Port Arthur penal station developed to house over 2000 convicts, soldiers and civil staff a decade later. It was closed in 1877, lots were sold off, building demolished for their materials and the site was ravished by major bushfires in the 1890s. The fascination of the convict past remained and establishment as a tourist destination started the day the site closed.
A collection of stock photography, mostly captured in the Kruger National Park in South Africa. The Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. It covers an area of 19,633 square kms in northeastern South Africa, and extends 360 kms from north to south and 65 kms from east to west. It is proudly home to The Big 5!
Waterfalls have cut deeply into the escarpment on the eastern fringe of the Southern Highlands. Fitzroy Falls in Morton National Park has been visited for over 150 years since discovery by Charles Throsby and is quite accessible from the Visitor Centre. Yarrunga Creek plunges 82m into the valley after cascading through temperate rainforest.
The Remarkable Rocks, South Australia
The Remarkable Rocks are one of the great attractions of Kangaroo Island in South Australia. Balanced on the cliff top by the Great Australian Bight, those granite rocks acquired their strange surreal shapes because they were exposed to the harsh southern winds and rains for millenia. A species of red lichens grows on the rocks mostly on the ocean side of the cliff and give them the orange colour.
Aboriginal Fire Management
Just as they have for thousands of years, indigenous Australians use fire to management land and landscapes. Early season burns reduce the chance for late dry season wildfires that can devastate the land. Fire is used to clear land around rock art sites to ensure bigger late season fires don't damage the rock.
Photos of Patan Durbar Square in Nepal
Patan or locally called Lalitpur, one of the old-cities of the Kathmandu Valley, is a UNESCO world heritage listed site. In the narrow alleys are traditional Newari houses interspersed in Hindu shrines that are still used today. The focus is Patan Durbar square, a conglomeration of temples of both Hindu and Buddhist origins. Traditional life continues in and around this traditional architecture.
A favourite beach. Protected by a rock reef the water is warm and calm, and then there are the rock formations and seaweed always revealing new mysteries to the photographer.
The Taj Mahal
The Monument to Love. Built by Shah Jahan for his beloved Mumtaz from about 1632 until about 1653, it has to be seen to be believed and truly appreciated. The light constantly changes across its' surface as the minutes pass.
From the sand dunes above the beach the rock the profile of a camel is apparent. However when you explore amongst the rocky headland on the NSW south coast it breaks into a group of rocks rising sharply out of the water.
Birds - Aquatic 6.
View images of Osprey perched on street lights, White-faced Heron wading through wetlands and Black-winged Stilts in flight. All inhabit areas near salt or fresh water.
Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is not only the stepping off point for treks in the Himalayas but also worthy of a visit in its own right. The city itself and surrounds are full of world-heritage listed sites with ancient temples; traditional architecture and a mixture of Hindu and Buddhist religious relics.
Young Aboriginal people have a varied upbringing. They participate in ceremonies from a very young age, learning how to dance and play music, as well as being taught stories about tribal history and responsibilities. Much of their time is spent outdoors learning how to gather bush tucker and hunt.
Landscapes - Pink lake.
A magical pink lake amid farmland and grazing cattle. Depending where you stand to view it, the pink colour is lighter or darker. The blue sky reflects on the pink lake adding some unusual hues.
Drought - The Coorong, South Australia.
Images seen here depict the devastation of drought, some say caused by climate change. The Coorong in South Australia is located at the end of the great Murray River system, which in itself is threatened, but as you can see, the Coorong is waiting for much needed help!
Fraser Island, Queensland
World Heritage Listed Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world. With pristine creeks, freshwater lakes, rainforest and white sandy beaches it is a natural wonder. The island is home to one of the purest strains of Dingo on the East Coast of Australia and the surrounding waters are a playground for migrating whales each year. It is popular with international tourists and locals with kilometres of beach for camping and four-wheel driving.
Large Feral Animals Australia
Over the past 200 years a number of very large animals have been introduced to northern Australia that create significant damage, especially to the fragile wetlands of the Top End. Animals such as buffalo and pigs are nearly impossible to eradicate in floodplain and wetland areas while camels, donkeys and horses flourish in the drier parts of the north.
Birds - Wedgetailed Eagle.
I have recently been lucky enough to capture images of these truly awesome Australian native birds of prey, the Wedge-tailed Eagles. They were perched on tree stumps in outback northern South Australia and to my amazement, they were not alarmed by my presence and allowed me to take many images.
Aboriginal rangers undertake a variety of land management work - from feral animal and plant control, rock art conservation and fire management. They are largely responsible for looking after vast tracts of country with limited resources. This has led to some interesting innovations in land management.
Norway is a country stretching the length of the western edge of Scandinavia from the North Cape to the southern city of Kristiansand and its capital Oslo. With the mountains and forest, fjords and lakes, cities and small towns with the old wooden buildings and rich historic sites, Norway is a great country to visit. Mountaineering, skiing, scenic tours by various modes of transport, pleasant atmosphere of the cities are the promise of an enjoyable holiday.
North Stradbroke Island, Queensland
North Stradbroke Island is right on Brisbane's doorstep though it still has a laid back charm and old style beach holiday feel to it. It has a pristine natural beauty and there are no big resorts or the usual chain stores and fastfood joints. It is a popular holiday spot for Brisbane local's, particularly during school holidays and those who love camping, four-wheel driving and relaxing in nature. Point Lookout is located on the North Eastern side of the island and my favourite spot.

A field of sunflowers near Oamaru NZ
Chanced upon this stunning field of golden sunflowers during a road trip to Dunedin. The flowers are hybrids and their seed is sold solely in New Zealand for use as bird seed. The day was overcast which accentuated the colour of the flowers and the landscape beyond. The beautiful girl was an added bonus.
What children do naturally depends on their age and gender. They play alone or with their siblings, cousins, friends, parents or grandparents. They play with their toys or they act like adults. Often they are in a world of their own, a fantasy world.
This series showcases the rugged beauty of the West Macdonnell Ranges. They cover The dirt road from King's Canyon to Glen Helen Gorge (called the Mareeni Loop) to the magic gorges along Namitjira Drive. These include Redbank Gorge, Ormiston Gorge and the Ochre Pits.

Stockton is the only suburb of Newcastle north of the Hunter River. The area is only 5 minutes by ferry from the city but otherwise quite isolated and compact which has allowed it to keep its heritage and character.
