Sugerloaf StreamBuy

This is the Sugerloaf Stream that flows through the Routeburn Track in Mount Aspiring National Park. The park was established in 1964 and covers 3,562 square kilometres. Not only is the Routeburn Track part of the National Park but there’s also tramping and hiking options that include the Rees-Dart circuit, Gillespie Pass circuit and The Mātukituki Valley.

Rakiura National Park

Sculpture by artist Russell Beck Buy

Here’s another sculpture, this one’s by artist Russell Beck and was made in 2002. It marks the entrance to Rakiura National Park on Stewart Island. This chain link sculpture symbolises the mythological link between the waka (canoe) of Maui and the anchor stone. According to the legend, Maui fished up Te Wai Pounamu (the South Island) and anchored it with Rakiura (Stewart Island). I also believe they’ve made a matching chain link sculpture on the mainland at Bluff.

The Vulcan In St Bathans

Inside The Vulcan – Buy

I stayed here one night and almost had the place to myself. I’m not sure what I would have done if it was busy. It was the perfect spot to process a few photos over a pint or two of Speight’s. Apart from a Grandfather and Grandson at the end of the bar happily sharing tales about fish and a lady in the dinning room, it was a very quiet night. They certainly didn’t might me setting up my camera for a photo before the landlady told us about the local ghost.

Brisbane City Hall

Brisbane City Hall – Buy

On one of my evenings strolls through Brisbane I came across the City Hall which can be found in King George Square. The building is as elegant as it is grand. Yet, not without controversy, and I do like a bit of controversy when it comes to local government buildings. 

In the early 1900’s after it was decided that the current City Hall was inadequate, and after many years of debate over where the new site for the building should be, a possibility of two locations was decided upon. However, Mayor Charles Jenkinson then sold one of the two sites to the Cathlolic Church, who promptly started construction of a Cathedral, leaving the City Hall to be built on the site which it stands today. 

Several years later the foundation stone for the City Hall was laid with a time capsule inside before construction started. However, the stone was discovered to be out of alignment, moved, then lost – along with the time capsule. 

Later, following the death of a construction worker who drowned while the swamp where the building was going to stand was drained, the Council began occupancy of the building in 1927. Nearly 20 years after the plans had been confirmed and the site was first chosen.

Malahide In Ireland

Melahide Seawall in Ireland – Buy

Among the many things to like about Malahide in Dublin is the fact that it has a castle, it is very walkable and it has many wonderfully hospitable pubs. I spent a very lovely afternoon wandering past the seawall, along the beach and following the Coast Road to a point where I was no longer sure where I was. Then, I turned around and decided the walk back would be sufficient enough to have earned a beer at the delightful local tavern called Gibney’s. That’s the wonderful thing about Ireland, you either get rewarded with alcohol or food and often it’s both!

Russell & The Bay Of Islands

Russell & The Bay Of Islands – Buy

The glorious Bay of Island. It’s not hard to see why sailors stopped off here after a long sea voyage, especially in the summer months. The weather is hot, the water is warm and time seems to stand hill. On my last day there I hiked up the hill path to the lookout where the flag pole stands. From there you get an outstanding view of Russell, all the surroundings bays and across the bay to the Treaty Grounds.

Streetlight In Arrowtown

Streetlight In Arrowtown – Buy

I can’t remember what the temperature was when I took this however it was early winter in Arrowtown on a Friday night. What I do remember is that it was bitterly cold. I wasn’t outside for long, it was maybe time enough for 5 or 6 frames before I headed inside to a nice warm fire.

Dew Kissed Silence Of The Haka Valley

In a dew kissed silence the earth awokeDew Kissed Silence In The Haka Valley – Buy

First light on the Kirkliston Range in the Hakataramea Valley on Homestead Road. Tucked away in the Waimate District, the Hakataramea Valley sits at the foot Kirkilston range in the South Island of New Zealand. This is another image that a brought to mind a poetic line when I was working on it. This time the line was …. in a dew kissed silence the earth awoke.


Wanaka Hues & That Tree

Wanaka Hues & That Tree, WanakaBuy

It seemed wrong to not have an image of ‘That Tree’ in Wanaka so when I was there for a few nights I joined the nightly gathering to capture it at dusk. While the tree is an interesting subject, I also wanted to highlight the wonderful colours that an evening in Wanaka can produce.

Nathan Road & Kansu Street In Hong Kong

Nathan Road & Kansu Street, Hong KongBuy

This is the corner of Nathan and Gascoigne Road and Kansu Street in Hong Kong. I was on this corner taking long exposures for quite a while as people came and went and traffic passed by. Those wee bursts of flames you can see in the picture are actually electrical charges and connections from the top of the bus. However, on the long exposure they look like flames coming out of the building which is a very cool, but unintentional effect.

Wellington’s Rewi Thompson Sculpture

By Rewi Thompson, Wellington – Buy

Mist can be such a cool effect, especially if you’re lucky enough to find it hanging around in a city. This is the Wellington waterfront one morning as low thick mist covered almost everything until the day warmed up. I found this sculpture by Rewi Thompson that was partially covered in the mist and it had this cool stone, tile effect surrounding it.
