Patterns in rock

Often some of the most beautiful landscapes can be created from destruction. When the wind and rain destroy man-made structures we consider it destruction, but when it happens to hardened rock over eons it then becomes something beautiful.

Patterns in the sand

Boundaries are always interesting to me photographically. The meeting place of two environments. Think forest meets river, desert meets woodland, and in this case ocean meets land.

For those of us in the tropics the sun gets pretty much too harsh for beautiful images a couple of hours after the sun pokes its head above the horizon. Something that... Continue Reading →

The world from above

Getting up above the world is a great way to get a whole new perspective on a landscape. You can put things in a perspective not possible from the ground, and use a longer lens to isolate parts of the environment to create abstracts from nature.
