Nature’s Voice

Nature sways with inspiration,
gentle whispers in the breeze.
Leaves floating in the air,
twisted limbs,
tangled trees.

Dew falls,
shifting moods,
our struggles shared.
A fiery day withers and fades,
on my soul writes nature’s ways.

A tree with twisted branches in fog
My mind was elsewhere when I came across this tree and I almost overlooked the potential. I’m glad I took a second look.

Twin gums

2021, Milawa, Victoria

Two Gums
At dawn, the gums appeared a cool shadowy blue.  I watched as the sun struck and slowly crept down the tree. Before long, the fog had dissipated and light enveloped the scene, the magic was over.

The more I consider what photography is about, the more I realise it’s not about photography at all.

Resilience, Mutawintji
Mutawintji, in outback New South Wales has seen its fair share of land degradation and cultural destruction. To me at least, this tree living beside a canyon wall symbolises resilience in the land and a hope for the future.

Black Spur rays

2015, Black Spur, Victoria

Black Spur Rays
The Black Spur is often foggy, but the combination of light and atmosphere needs just the right balance to deliver rays this spectacular. I had been walking through the Black Spur when I spotted a deer hiding in the trees just a few meters away. It’s deafening call broke the silence and startled me. When I turned around again, the blue-gray morning had transformed and I suddenly felt about three inches tall, an incredible moment.

Winter approaches

2012, Lake Mountain, Victoria

Winter Approaches
Snow gums, scattered boulders and fresh air; my childhood memories of Lake Mountain.  Unfortunately this area is still recovering from the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires and will remain forever changed.
