Hi, my name is Doug and I am married with two adult children.
I am lucky enough to live on Sydney’s Northern beaches which have some beautiful landscapes and beaches.
I have been taking pictures for a couple of years now and I love the whole experience of getting out and about to take the pictures and then looking at the finished product.
This is the first hobby I have had and I love it.

Money received from any sales of my work will be donated to The Australian Conservation Foundation or Land Care Australia.
As I walk around taking pictures I see lots of hard working volunteers looking after our lovely reserves and parks. They do a great job.
I have also come across a quote that seems very important to me as a good guide to life.

Life is a journey, not a destination."
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am more than happy to make you a calander of any pics you want, just email me at dougcliff8@gmail.com

Thanks for visiting my red bubble page


November 2017. I have just spent 5 years looking after my mother who had a stroke and has dementia. I have now handed this job onto my sister and moved up to the Central Coast on NSW. Its been a while since I have had the time to take pictures so I hope that I can start again. The central coast is a beautifull place and I am looking foward to trying to capture some of its beauty

My wife has been a pillar of strength and none of this wou…

Mum and Mudgee

My mother has been recovering from a stroke which hit her pretty hard, it has now been twelve months and I decided that it was time to take a trip to the country to see her grandchildren. I was reluctant to do this as she is a little forgetful and doesn’t like being out of her familiar surroundings. I had stopped work to look after her so I thought that I had better give it a go and we headed off…

Parkes and Orange

We went to Orange again to see my wife’s friend Jane. She has been having trouble at school with her son. He has Autism and the school has not been looking after him as they should. My wife went there so she could offer her friend some support at a meeting with the school. On the surface the meeting appeared to go well. / While we were there I thought it might be a good idea to go to Parkes as it…
