twilight – a time of pause when nature changes her guard

Twilight – a time of pause when nature changes her guard. All living things would fade and die from too much light or too much dark, if twilight were not.

love, and do what you like


‘Love, and do what you like’

~Saint Augustine

 It is capturing and remembering moments like these I absolutely love. There is peace all around as the day begins to dawn. Birds begin to sing and tell the world to awaken. A breeze glides through the grass around me, as I watch the sunlight break over the mountains. The light ignites the grass as if it were on fire, then the fields dances like flames in the sunlight.

After taking this photo, I paused and captured the almost indescribable beauty before me and wrote the memory upon my heart, soul and mind.

Farewell to another day.

Vibrant Colours


Vibrant days call for afternoon walks.

The Snowy River


The Snowy River beings right here in the beautiful Snowy Mountains.

Snowy Mountains


These are the Snowy Mountains. It is autumn here is Australia (hence the absence of snow) these are the highest mountains in Australia. They were made famous by the Snowy River which begins from these mountains and also the poem, ‘The Man from Snowy River’.

Summer break has finally started so I thought I would get back into photography.

I went for a drive into the mountains and national park. The hills always seem so green and luscious.

There is something about the cool mountain air that always leaves on refreshed.

Hope you are having a great week:)

Shades of Light

Dusk in the Country


Went for a drive yesterday afternoon after a hectic week at work. One of the best things about living in Queensland is that it doesn’t take you long to get into the country for. The city. These rolling mountains are only a 20 minute drive from where I live. The sunset ting over the mountains is always a refreshing sight and the crisp winter air beckons one to hurry back home!

Glass House Mountains, Queensland

Sunny Days


There are no sunny days here in Brisbane right now. We have had very overcast weather for a couple of weeks. So I though I would post a reminder of sunny days.

Glass House Mountains


A view of Mt Tibrogargan from White Horse Mountain.



I went exploring today and found this beautiful spot just outside of Samford, north of Brisbane.
It was a beautiful day.

In the Mist


Bunya Mountains, Queensland, Australia

Doubtful Sound


Doubtful Sound is a glorious place to visit. In the south island of New Zealand, Doubtful Sound is a silent beauty. The cruise through the sound shows the mountains towering over the water, creating an atmosphere of complete awe. It is well worth a visit, it is a place you have to feel and see with your own eyes to really appreciate its beauty.
