Bixby Creek Bridge – Big Sur – California

September 4, 2016

Roughly 215km (135mi) south of San Francisco is this little gem of a bridge on highway 1, the Bixby Creek bridge. As it’s name suggests, this bridge allows highway 1 to cross Bixby Creek along the beautiful Big Sur coastline region of California. Built in 1932, the bridge itself is fairly typical of many other concrete arch bridges scattered along the west coast, but what makes the Bixby Creek Bridge stand out from the rest is it’s stunning location. With rolling mountains on one side and the Pacific ocean on the other the bridge is quite popular with the tourists looking to stretch their legs and take a quick snapshot of the scenery.

Golden Path – Uralla NSW

July 19, 2016

Golden hour is one of my favourite times of day to shoot landscape photos. This lovely scene presented itself one very early morning on our recent trip to the New England region of New South Wales. It was literally a 90 degree turn from my Gostwyck Chapel Photo, roughly 10km from the town of Uralla, this short bridge leads from the road past the chapel to the Deeargee Woolshed, another historic building that one day I hope to photograph from the inside. This gold light and the low, early morning fog give this shot a dreamy look. Please keep an eye out for more pictures from this area.

Mt Tibrogargan – Glass House Mountains

July 5, 2016
Mt Tibrogargan

Mt Tibrogargan, the third tallest mountain in the Glasshouse Mountains national park in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. A rhyolite volcanic plug formed 27 million years ago, it is one of the most recognised of the glasshouse mountains.
Went searching for a sunset with some friends and found our way to the Glasshouse mountains lookout at Beerburrum, unfortunately due to trees surrounding the lookout and lack of interest in the sky, there wasn’t much of a sunset to be had.
