It's funny how some distance

Makes everything seem small
I am one with the wind and sky

I am putting that out there for all those who don't instantly recognise the above lines, i think its my duty .. as one who has suffered (many times over), to share with the good people that I know the joy of the song 'let it go'.
Now if you still dunno what the hell I am banging on about, just plug 'let it go elsa song' into your favorite search engine, sit back, turn up the volume and enjoy (seriously 🙂 )
After climbing a few dunes, sliding down a few and getting my ass crack filled up with sand I decided enough was enough and this was gonna be the dune I took a photo of. So, the connection to the song, sadly, as I stood atop this not so inspirational dune, the only think that stuck in my head was … 'It's funny how some distance makes everything seem small' … ahh $%# … so instead walked further and took some cool pictures of frog tracks in the dunes instead 😉
(seriously, now go and put it into the search engine, trust me, money back guarantee)

Waiting for dawn

watching

As Sydney comes out the other end of some wicked weather, it seems only appropriate to post this image.

Here it is, the dawn of the end of the wild weather. I hope ya'all made it through OK – my thoughts go out to the families of those who lost their lives in the floods/storms.

Salvation lies from within

Clarity comes from moments alone
Welcome to the Little Bay 😉

Little Bay is one of those little gems of locations in Sydney, a relatively large stretch of coastline dominated by the Golf Course (s) which has it all from rock shelves, to cliffs to sheltered beaches and most importantly of all, pretty darn quiet, for Sydney anyway 😉

Single frame.

out front – LEE 0.9 Graduated filter and Screw in HOYA circular polariser

As always, I welcome any suggestions, comments and improvements to my photography, they are always warmly welcomed.

Watching Night Turn to Day

A large rain cloud sneaked over Botany this morning, spreading like a cancer snuffing all light and warmth that was meant to be..sunrise.

Single image – triggered using a Phottix Aion wireless remote, these things are great for this kind of thing, heaps of range and pretty consist, works thru the pocket too 🙂

Park Life

Never did i ever envisage visiting so many parks or for that matter really worrying about how many and how good they are until Chaos turned up. Now i am a regular park goer and even partake in a little of the climbing jungle gyms myself 🙂 Now i really appreciate a half decent park.

Selfie Saturday

Someone need to give the place some scale 🙂 even so, one cannot tell that the boulders on the right are the size of buses from the picture – conveying a sense of scale with a wide angle lens is quite difficult.
