An avid photographer, both still and moving, since I was 10 years old, I later discovered and developed a particular love of macro, which is one of my main genres. More recently, however, my repertoire has broadened to include stained glass windows and particularly the stunning beauty of outback New South Wales and South Australia.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of the Creation, captured and presented here for you.

    Most unusual exposure – your words explain:-)))

  • Hello there my friend. Yes, I thought it unusual too. In fact I wasn’t quite sure if it was good enough for RedBubble at first, as it was a bit unusual, as you said.
    Somehow the late afternoon’s light created interesting effects as the strength of the rays was only emphasised by the shallow angle..xx

    Smooth and beautiful.

  • Ah yes….it is! I hadn’t noticed how smooth it is before. Strangely we often need to see through others eyes I think, as they can observe things we miss. At least that’s the case with me and this shot!!…
