Growing and Blowing – 12 October 2019

Around the world at the moment people are calling for change, to how we impact the planet and how we maintain our lifestyle. While celebrating my darling wife’s birthday today we took a road trip past the wind farm at Mt Mercer in Central Victoria. This wind farm is large, and in sight of the newest central Vic wind farm at Ballan. In contrast to carbon heavy electric generators, think big coal, gas and the nuclear option I’ve never seen power generating plant surrounded by food grade product.  Until today.

Hope that you enjoy the images.

The sights you see

Some days the planets align, and a perfect photographic opportunity presents itself. Today I found an opportunity to shoot Cam Scale’s ‘To the unknown Mariner’ painted on the Old Port of Geelong building at 65 Brougham Street, Geelong. It took Cam 11 days to complete. With neutral grey skies, and rain in the offing, I managed to capture a unique view of the mural, emphasising the eye, as seen through the trees.

I’ve called this photo: Eye in the Sky. I hope that you enjoy.

Mid Summer Photography

While being eaten by bugs and bitten by Mosquitos is never fun, occasionally you get the chance to capture some great photographs.

Enjoy this small gallery of photos from late 2016.
