Eastern Guardian

Byron Bay Lighthouse, Byron Bay, NSW

I’ve recently returned from a trip to the Gold Coast to catch up with a good friend of mine, Darren Tierney. We were lucky enough to head south and spend a day at Byron Bay in New South Wales under perfect weather conditions.

Watching the clouds build a couple of hours before sun set, we suspected it was going to be a ripper. After shooting Wategos Beach for a short while, we headed up to the lighthouse to watch the sun set. We weren’t wrong with our suspicion, as the light cloud cover lit up a nice pink hue.

I am very happy with the result after attempting to shoot this location many times and coming away with nothing spectacular. Persistence pays off!

Sugarloaf Rock

After a bit of a hiatus from blogging and photographing, I have just returned from an epic, although short, trip to the South-West of Western Australia with something to share.

Sugarloaf Rock is one of my favourite spots to photograph around Dunsborough, and a few days ago I had the opportunity to photograph it at sunrise. It was windy as anything, but I was determined to get the shot. After scrambling around in the dark to find a composition, I found this angle and set up my gear. I fired off just a few frames and packed up my gear. This was one of those times when I was confident I had something special.

I also shot some photos of the surrounding areas – Meelup Beach, Wyadup Beach, Cape Naturaliste, Canal Rocks. These photographs will be uploaded to the galleries shortly.
