*Far-off is the place I chose to live.

High hills make for silent tongues.

Gibbons screech in valley cold

My gate of grass blends with the cliff.

A roof of thatch among the pines,

I dig a pool, feed it from the stream.

No time now to think about the world,

The years go by, shredding ferns.

- Han-shan, The Master of Cold Mountain*

Photograph taken with a Canon EOS 450D, hand held 55-250 zoom, late afternoon while walking in the bush near the Wombat Forest in Central Victoria. Levels adjusted very slightly in Photoshop CS3, otherwise straight from the camera.

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.
