Eastern Water Dragon, Physignathus lesueurii by 


Over the last few days I’ve been at a music camp in Mt Evelyn called Oasis and the owner of the camp has a little reptile house he keeps as a hobby/ attraction for the camp. He is obviously very passionate about his little beauties and this afternoon he very obligingly allowed me to take some pics of his critters. John was a great, helping to pose the animals and going out of his way to help me get good shots an amazing experience I was priviledged to experience.

Australia’s rugged landscape is an important part of my life and over many years I have explored some of the more remote parts of it on foot, ski, kayak and rope. I usually travel alone so I can take my time capturing the essence of these places without distraction. Life slows down and after a while I feel like I begin to merge with the land, nature takes me into her confidence and changes me. I hope you enjoy the fruit of these excursions.
