Scenic Newcastle – A photographic collage composed of the fantastic scenery and beaches around Newcastle in Australia.

All the shots were captured as RAW files and taken with a Canon 450D during various shoots in different seasons stretching back almost a year. The shot overlooking the buildings and the river mouth was captured from the roof of the most historic Church in my city, Christchurch Cathedral.

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    Now thats a nice shot of Newcastle. Nicely put together James as always

  • Thanks Al ! I don’t believe you can get a higher vantage point in town unless to get in a plane or a Chopper. I decided a few buildings in the bottom of the shot could afford to be covered over with other scenes.

  • Thanks Kim ! That’s what it’s designed for – so I kept it simple in the layout/extra’s.

    Beautiful James!! Well done!

  • Thanks Cheryl ! I’ve had it in mind for months to go up there one day but other locations and subjects kept cropping up until the other day.

    Christchurch Cathedral is a great place to visit, that breakwater over on the Stockton side is a good spot to pull in a few bream as well. I heard recently that house prices over there have sky rocketed since most of the industry has gone from the harbour. Nice work James.

  • Yeah, I’ve had a few photo sessions inside and around the grounds of Christchurch and it rarely disappoints. I can’t catch a fish to save myself – they all get away with the bait ! :) Thank you.

    perfect postcard!

  • Thanks, that’s the aim ! There hasn’t been much traffic to this shot but if you live here and get to stand up there on the roof to take in the views you can’t help but love the place.

    great work, makes for a great postcard

  • Thanks for your comment and the feature! It’s the first time I’ve ever been up on top of that building even though I’ve lived here for over 40 years – it certainly didn’t disappoint. :)
