This image has taken my breath away many times over since I captured it 2 weeks ago. I have tweaked it to what I believe, is the perfect harmonious balance of colour, form, shape and tone. It is gentle, uplifting and my highlight piece from my trip to Tasmania. I’m so blessed to have been here on the morning that this amazing fog event occured. It graced the left hill, spilling over so quietly and elegantly, taking up space beneath Cradle Mountains’ signature peaks.

Title of the piece is taken from the title of a favourite song of mine “Thing Called Love” by Above and Beyond. The song is about relationships not realised and forgotten, and that was kind of my relationship with my Photography throughout most of this year. I put it down to focus on other aspects of my life, doubting myself and my skill, when it was there all along. I just needed a good dose of inspiration, and here it was, right in front of me.

I feel recharged and ready to tackle more photography throughout summer, knowing that I never lost my skill and that it is still alive and kicking when presented with opportunities. I’ve just got to go and seek them out…

I try to spend my life finding the simple, beautiful moments happening all around us. As a Creative Photographer, I like to interpret what my camera captures, and turn it into a dreamscape for all to appreciate.
