Through my Lens

  • Crimson Rosella

    The crimson rosella (Platycercus elegans) is a parrot native to eastern and south eastern Australia. We have a few living here, and they are very difficult to photograph as they are so quick.

  • The Painted Hills

    Looking at this photo I can see why these hills are called "painted". This really looks like a painting to me. This photo was taken with my Nikon D7200 and 18-300mm lens.

  • Flight from William Creek

    A beautiful sunrise as one of Wrights Air planes takes off for a flight over Lake Eyre

  • The Painted Hills

    I must confess, I think this was the highlight of the Lake Eyre area for me. The Anna Creek Painted Hills, previously called the Secret Painted Hills, are a spectacular and recently discovered section of the pristine Breakaways country in the far north of South Australia. Anna Creek Painted Hills is a rocky outcrop of large and small hills, which emerge suddenly out of a flat, desert landscape. The hills are approximately 20 kilometres x 18 kilometres in size. It is believed that the Anna Creek Painted Hills are the leftover effects of 50 million years of climate change, with the climate going from glacial to wet and semi-tropical over million of years. The changing colours of the hills are believed to be a result of oxidisation. The deep red is due to the oxidation of iron in the rocks, while the white sections are where iron has leached away.

    The amazing patterns of the salt lake next to the water in Lake Eyre

  • Silverband Falls

    This photo was taken yesterday, when it was very cold, rainy and even snowing in the Grampians. The Silverband Falls are waterfalls located in the Grampians National Park, in western Victoria, Australia. Fed by Dairy Creek, the horsetail falls are characterised by a narrow band of water that tumbles over a small rock face and then disappears into a rocky base. The creek re-emerges some 50 metres west of the falls. Early European visitors to the falls named it Silverband because of its narrow stream of water.

  • little Critter

    We found this little critter when we landed at the Painted Hills on Anna Creek Station. It couldn't have beem much bigger than about 10cm. I don't know what it is, but it looks a bit like a gecko. It is again amazing to see how well camouflaged it is.

  • Australian Feral Camel

    There are an estimated 300 000 feral camels in Australia, doing enormous damage to the environment. They are the descendants of the camels imported to use on the Ghan railway and in the Outback, transporting goods everywhere.

    This is a photo of what children should be doing, playing in the mud and loving it. This photo was taken at Lake Eyre and the mud here is especially sticky.

    I think this is the most beautiful bird in the world. This one was just taking off when I took this photo

    Perfectly camouflaged against the background, as this beautiful bird flies toward me.

    This a a new field of photography for me, as I recently got a 200 - 500mm lens. This beautiful bird was on his way to land on this creek at the Burke-Willis tree. Much to learn still!

    The vast, beautiful, but very dry, outback as seen on our flight to Lake Eyre

  • Dingo

    This dingo was seen at Halligan Bay. He seems to be resident there, and not at all too afraid of humans.
