The White Tree, Benalla : aerial photograph by 

This dead tree and it’s shadow was photographed from a balloon. For someone who is not too great with heights, I was hanging over the edge taking shots! This photograph has currently (1/5/13 ) been viewed 1448 times, and was featured in One Tree at a Time.

My style is contemporary whilst firmly rooted in realism. I work in a number of mediums, including pastel, charcoal and conte, pen and ink, gouache, watercolour, acrylics, pencil, photography, and mixed media, and am currently painting in oils. I find that changing and experimenting with mediums keeps me fresh and open to learning. I especially love capturing the human face and figure in oils, and photographing the urban landscape, including the amazing graffiti to be found in Melbourne.

    Wow! awesome!
    What a great perspective and I love the shadow
    This works so well as a b&w shot

    how ghostly
    how sad

    Yet it would still be a brilliant roost for a flock of birds!
    Wouldn’t it be spectacular with a foliage of cockies or galas!

    well done! ~ adg :o)

    superbe! la blancheur de quelques branches suffisent à donner un relief impressionnant à ce sol de terre, avec la complicité de l’astre soleil
    white wood, black shadow…nothing make lot feeling

    Wow Roz – what a capture – stunning and stark – as though viewing, for the first time, an alien landscape from above….
