I’ve become a little obsessed with this spot, it’s an old show garden that was established by a wealthy land owner almost a century ago but has been left to itself. Blackberries have overgrown its entrance the paths are half covered and its footbridge is falling down. It also includes this great little water feature.

I’ve been back half a dozen times now as its only a few minutes from where I teach on Thursday and I can get there and back in a free period. I’ve trimmed back undergrowth, removed rocks and even hacked away at a root with an axe that had half overgrown one of the tiers and was interrupting the flow in what I felt was a photographically displeasing way. I’ve shot it in different light, different flow levels and then shazam different seasons with the autumn colour totally transformed the whole scene.

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.

    You definitely can’t ignore this one! What an impact!! Amazing! Wonderful with the autumn leaves and the green moss … but you almost don’t notice any of that because of those amazing tiers of water!
