I baked and decorated a batch of cupcakes for a friend’s birthday. Perfect for afternoon tea! Taken with Canon 40D and Canon EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM.

I live in the beautiful Adelaide Hills of South Australia which are a constant inspiration to me in my photography. As an observer of nature and the world around around me, I find many subjects here which I try to portray in an artistic and interesting way. Please contact me if there are any of my images you wish to purchase or otherwise use.
