You Am I

Dew drops on a barley crop – Early morning, Quairading, Central Wheatbelt, Western Australia.

A sunrise shot for someone who ordinarily can’t string a sentence together until mid-morning is quite an achievement…….

Born in Victoria, now living in the outback of Western Australia, I love nature, music, and photography. I’m passionate about our environment, sustainability, and documenting the impact we’ve had on the planet.

I shoot both digital and film, and have a quirky collection of toy and vintage cameras that are a lot of fun to experiment with.

    Woooohoooooooooo!! Mel is baaaaaaaaaaaaack!!:))))))))
    This shot combines so many gems, the diamond droplets that capture light, the sharp green grass and the bokeh is pfffffffffiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuuuuuuuuuu!!
    Perfect in a relaxation room!

  • Hey! I never went anywhere (at least I don’t think I did!) – I just like to go and explore the darker, grittier, side of things every now and then :)))) Actually I think I prefer it :D
    Anyway, thanks RX – I love your enthusiasm! It’s certainly put a smile on my face. Much needed, and appreciated, my friend :)
