4 I took this shot just outside the tiny New South Wales town of Borambola near Wagga Wagga. — at Borambola, New South Wales, Australia
5 The Cliffs of Moher, on the west coast of Ireland, is a brilliant place. We were lucky it was all sunshine, but the clouds rolling on through meant that the colours ands landscapes were constantly changing. — at Cliffs of Moher, County Clare, Ireland

I simply like the colour changes as you get closer to the sun. — at Hoi An, Vietnam.
9 OK...you're thinking "What is so great with a couple of blokes shaking hands with the unemployed?"
I like this photo because is so Australian - blue skies, sunburnt country and couple of blokes having a natter while "doing the domestics" when on the drink.
Just for the record, I'm not going to name the blokes as Jungle and Darky in public, but I will say it was exactly 2 years ago today and it's a Snap Frozen Yank and a Kiwi watering the horses. ;-) — in Smoky Bay, South Australia, Australia
10 Love the colours of the dry landscape with angry storm clouds threatening rain. This photo was taken literally in the middle of nowhere, on the Barkly Highway at the NT/QLD border.
You know the place....where you have to set your watches back 10 years and have to start whinging about all the bad calls, anyone wearing maroon, has had over the years. — at Avon Downs, Nothern Territory, Australia.
11 Went for a stroll down past Circular Quay and over to the steps of the Opera House. I thought the light was just right, to get a great shot of the "Coat Hanger". — at Circular Quay, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
12 Getting the ute filthy on the way home. — at Lake Everard, South Australia, Australia

15 What could be more fun that partaking in a few adult beverages, in a foreign country, with a few dozen of your mates??? — in Fukuoka-shi, Fukuoka, Japan.
16 I had a rental car and a bit of free time in Scotland, so off on walkabout I went.
This photo was take over the back of the 18th Hole, of the Old Course, of St Andrews - the home of golf.
The reason why I took the photos was that the homeowner have wonderful ocean views, but how do they get to enjoy the water if there's no beach? — at The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, St Andrews, Scotland
17 One of my favorite photos for a number of reasons - not only is it one of the best harbors to take photos in, there were also a number of "firsts" for me with this shot.
First time with a tripod and using long exposures First time shooting in near dark light conditions with no flash. First time having just one item (the ocean liner) blurred to look like it is moving and nothing else is.
All in all, I'm quite proud of the composition and what I was able to achieve with different techniques with this particular shot. — at Sydney Harbour, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
18 Nothing says you're in rural Australia more than double-decker, triple trailer cattle crates or even every day "Road Trains". — at Four Ways, Queensland, Australia
19 Rain comin' on in. — at Avon Downs, Nothern Territory, Australia.
20 Just looked out the window and decided to pull the camera out and share the sunset with you all. — at Fitzy's Poverty Palace, Townsville, Queensland, Australia
21 I took this photo in Vietnam because I loved the layering of colour - from the brown of the rocks, through the emeralds of the ocean, to the blues of the sky. — at Cham Island, Hoi An, Vietnam.
22 Sitting in my motor-home, with a cold adult beverage in one hand and my camera in the other, waiting on the sunset. — at Devils Tower National Monument, Wyoming, United States of America
23 I decided to shoot this shot in near darkness, leaving the shutter open for 1 second at 3600 speed ISO.
What makes it for me is the Sydney Opera House is in clear focus while the two ferries are slightly blurred - showing motion. — at Sydney Harbour, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
24 I took this photo just outside the tiny town of Spalding, South Australia. Aside from the striking contrasts in colour, it reminded me of driving along near Pendleton, Oregon. — in Spalding, South Australia, Australia
25 THE OLD & THE NEW: An old fishing vessel and a new ferry in the background, gives a pretty good contrast of Vietnam - hence why I took the photo. — at Cham Island, Hoi An, Vietnam
26 I thought I'd play a little with my 400mm lens and different depths of field out near the "Happy Hour Hut". — in Smoky Bay, South Australia, Australia
27 What struck me the most about this picture, taken in Manawatu area of the North Island of New Zealand, was how the sky goes from dark greys to dark blues as it crosses the road. You also have the starkness of the industrial colours, flat country and power poles to mountains and colours of nature on the other side.. — in Waiouru, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand.
28 The stark orange of the Itsukushima Shrine Torii Gate against the blues and greys of an overcast drizzly rainy day made for a great shot. — at Torii Gate, Itsukushima Shrine, Miyajima, Hiroshima, Japan
29 I just loved the contrast in colours in this shot. It would have to be on of the top 3 photos I've ever taken. — in Waiouru, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand.

31 Lake Wairarapa just outside Featherston on the North Island of New Zealand, just seemed to go on for infinity. Just loved the differant hues of blue. — at Lake Wairarapa, near Featherston, South Wairarapa District, Wellington, New Zealand.
32 I love this photo not only because it has thee people who mean a whole lot to me, but its the different shadings and textures of black and silver, as reflected in the water. Another thing to check out is the volume of water that seems to be hanging from the oars.
It also helps that two gorgeous woman are the focus ... but I digress as I might be a tad biased. — at Tam Cốc-Bích Động-Ninh Bình, Vietnam
33 Hanging with Phil Wilkins, Kasie Wilkins and Jodi Anne at Cham Island - Hoi An, Vietnam
34 Easter on the Back Beach at the southern end of the Mornington Peninsular. — at Portsea Surf Beach, Victoria, Australia
35 What I love about this photo, which I took in central North Island (New Zealand), is the composition keeps building from the front of the image.
Call me tapped in the head, but you go from a simple stick fence to flat green pastures, up to pine trees, some antennas, soaring snow capped mountains and finally to some billowing clouds. — in Waiouru, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand.
36 I love this photo for it's simplicity and that it looks so "moody".
I took the shot with the sun directly behind the palm tree and used the circular polarizing filter to highlight the clouds.
Just love how it turned out. — in Fukuoka-shi, Fukuoka, Japan.
37 The 'ANZAC' nickname, has a timeless meaning to most Aussies & Kiwi's alike.
This week marks the commemoration of the coming of age, of until then, an innocent nation. Unfortunately those bonds of a nations pride, honour, self belief and mateship were forged in battle. http://www.army.gov.au/Our-history/Traditions/ANZAC-Day
. — at Australian War Memorial, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia
38 Gotta love the views around the 12 Apostle's, but I reckon Josh Buccilli and myself had our fair share of "combat tourists" who kept pushing/shoving/bumping all and sundry, just so they could get their own happy snaps. — with Josh Buccilli at Twelve Apostles. — at The Twelve Apostles, Victoria, Australia
39 You know it's mustering season when you have 15 Road Trains Australia (RTA) triple double decker cattle crates on the move. — at Helen Springs Station, Northen Territory, Australia.
40 We're on the overnight train from Hanoi to Da Nang and found this church in the middle of nowhere about an hour or so north of Da Nang. I love the contrast of the bright yellow building against the lush green jungle. — in Da Nang, Vietnam.
41 It seemed like it was "Bring Your Camera To Work" day.
This shot was taken out at the silver, lead and zinc mine (Cannington) I worked at. It was during a shutdown, as you never see this amount of gear sitting idle. — at BHPB Cannington Mine, Queensland, Australia
42 Phil Wilkins and took our cameras for a walk in Saigon on dusk. I took this image of Ho Chi Minh City Hall just on dusk and just loved the vibrant colours. — at Ho Chi Minh City Hall, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
43 We were just bumming around the North Island of New Zealand and the Kiwi's in the crew decided to stop and order some local tucker - whitefish fritters. While waiting, I wandered across the road and snapped this photo.
I like it because of the composition of all the elements - water, sky, mountains, lush vegetation etc. — in Mokau, Taranaki, New Zealand
44 Just got back from kayaking on Ha Long Bay, Vietnam and caught the sunset just nicely. — at Ha Long Bay, Quảng Ninh Province, Vietnam.

46 Could not believe how much ambient light is radiated from cities. Here I was standing on the restaurant balcony of Golden Central Hotel in Saigon with Phil Wilkins. — in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
47 Heading into New Plymouth, on the west coast of the north island of New Zealand, for our first match of the 2011 Rugby World Cup, we were greeted with this impressive sight of Mount Taranaki. — at Mount Taranaki, Taranaki, New Zealand
48 We stopped for a butchers hook at Awakino Heads, on the north island of New Zealand. I took this shot because you are on an apparently good surfing beach, whille 130 kilometers away is the snow of Mount Taranaki - great contrasts. — in Awakino, Waitomo District, Waikato, New Zealand.
49 North of Wellington (New Zealand) we came across Lake Wairarapa. Great looking place, but a bit tricky getting on and off your boat at the dock. — at Lake Wairarapa, near Featherston, South Wairarapa District, Wellington, New Zealand.
50 Fraser Island is a truly remarkable area to visit - especially on a brilliant sunny day. — at Fraser Island, Queensland, Australia
51 I was asked to do a "maternity" photo-shoot for a couple of great mates Rhett & Michelle Hassel.
For my mind - this photo sticks out as it symbolizes a young married couple, forging their way forward, hand in hand - together.
Call me a hopeless romantic, but it's one of my favorite photos of the day. — at Cape Pallarenda, Townsville, Queensland, Australia
52 Talk about a composition of blue.
I took this shot of Magnetic Island last weekend. — at Cape Pallarenda, Townsville, Queensland, Australia
