Fishing at Woodman Point Jetty

Woodman Point Jetty, busy with fisherman and Pelicans.

These two pelicans were hoping for a free feed, but unfortunately the fish weren’t coming to the party!

Australian Pelican in Flight on the Swan River

On the weekend I ventured down to the Swan River, and found a dozen Australian Pelicans. This guy had just leapt out of the water, beginning his search for some mid-morning breakfast.

The Australian Pelican is a fascinating bird, which claims to have the longest bill of any living bird.

Commonly having a wingspan of 2.3-2.6 metres, these birds glide through the air almost effortlessly.

Location: Swan River, Perth, Western Australia

A quick snap taken (using my Nexus 5) on my morning commute last week.

I am constantly surprised by the beauty I see while riding my bike along the Swan River through South Perth and Kings Park!

Rottnest Island Easter

Family. Fun. Fish.

The 3 words that describe my Easter long weekend at Rottnest Island!


All photos were taken using my Nexus 5 mobile phone. I decided to leave my DSLR at home given the amount of rough water, salt and sand at the island.

Blue Lake, Mt Gambier

On a recent drive across Australia, I stopped at the Blue Lake, in Mount Gambier, South Australia.

This fascinating landmark is located inside an inactive volcano.

Each year, the lake completely changes colour to a fantastic turquoise blue.

Amazingly, this lake serves as the main water supply for the town of Mount Gambier.

This images is two separate photos merged into a single panorama.

Queen Mary 2

Last month the world-renound RMS Queen Mary 2 luxury cruise ship visited Fremantle Harbour.

This modern engineering feat is a massive 354m long, 72m tall, and weighs almost 150,000 Tonnes.

After staying for several days, the ship departed, with a crowd of several thousand people wishing it a safe journey.

This photo was taken from the rocks of Fremantle Harbour’s north mole.

I’ll never forget the loud sound of the ship’s fog horn!

Last month I visited Busselton in Western Australia with my family. We stayed at a house that was only metres from Geographe Bay.

I did plenty of relaxing, whild dad and my brother threw in a line while the sun set in the evening.

We explored Southbank, Hardware Lane, and a few other parts of the Melbourne CBD.

It was the first time I’ve attempted to shoot all my photos in manual mode.

Here’s a selection of shots that turned out ok:
