Mid winter can be a time of heavy frosts and thick fogs in the wine country around Rutherglen, Victoria. This small lake is home to lots of water birds and the famous River Red Gums, endemic to the Murray River region.


I love photography, travelling, native Australian flora and fauna, cycling and most other sports too. I also like landscapes and cityscapes.

I hope these interests are reflected in my portfolio.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you like my work.

  • Thank you very much Ray – I really appreciate your comment. I had a look at your work too and it is wonderful. I’m also a former school teacher – I taught geography which is why I love landscapes and travelling too. Cheers

  • Hi Irishgirl7, Thank you for your lovely comment. If you ever come to Australia, let me know and I will show you where it is – you will probably have to come here in our winter to see it like this though.
