A collection of stalagmites and stalactites from the Jenolan caves complex in New South Wales. An interesting exposure of a room in the middle of the Mont St. Michel abbey complex in Northern France. The stone arches supporting the abbey of Mont St Michel often can  unnoticed, but they are more works of art than simply  structural supports. Just off the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea lies this strategic fortress, built stubbornly at the foot of a giant rock, called Gibraltar. A long exposure photo of the ancient ruins of the Roman forum taken in the twilight hours in Rome, Italy.

From the Jin Mao tower in the Pudong district in downtown Shanghai, we get a brilliant view of the city lights by night. In ancient Athens, there once stood what must have been a mighty and impressive temple dedicated to the god of gods, Zeus.  Today, little remains... The Great Pyramid is indeed a wonderous sight, this shot was composed adjacent to the remains of one of the Queen's pyramids, nearby in Giza, Egypt. Found buried at the foot of the Great Pyramid in Giza, Egypt were the wooden remains of great solar boats which once would have transported the body of an Egyptian Pharaoh to the ancient pyramid complex. Just outside the Giza Pyramid complex near Cairo in Egypt lies the desert stretching on to the horizon.. Just outside the city of Barcelona, deep in the nearby hills lies a monastery called Santa Maria de Montserrat.  This shot was taken from nearby, looking away from the majestic hillside.

Last year I participated in the ogle Photo Walk in Canberra.  I snapped this early photo using a tripod and a long exposure setting. Taken from a nice vantage point on Observatory Hill, this photo comfortably blends the serenity of the location with the grandness of the great arch. From near Luna Park in North Sydney, you are offered a great view of both the Opera House in the distance and the Harbour Bridge looming above. Just near Dawes Point Park, there is a nice view of North Sydney and Luna Park from underneath the massive shadow of the Harbour Bridge. In downtown Vancouver you can come across these sprightly critters hopping from tree to tree in search of food and adventure.

This is a photo of one of the famous Barbary Apes of Gibraltar, sitting precariously against the backdrop of the nearby Spanish countryside. Up close, the Arc de Triumph is an tall and impressive arch, but a view of this famous Parisian landmark from atop the Eiffel Tower puts it into perspective. Shot from a cruise on the Hudson River, this statue - a gift from France - welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each year and is a national icon. Taken at my parent's house at Christmas time a few years back with a brand new macro lens.  The timing was impeccable. Taken in 2009, this black and white exposure captures the majestic tower bridge opening with the iconic white tower of the Tower of London to the left. Taken during our February 2007 Western US trip, the view of the Grand Canyon in Arizona is simply magnificent. Here's a nice candid shot of me exploring the vast ruggedness of the Great Canyon in Arizona in the United States in 2007. Taken on board the Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas departing from Barcelona in Spain in 2010.  Looking up from 3rd deck, the design feels almost alien. Taken at the St. John's co-cathedral in Malta, this church originally was quite spartan, but over many decades the wealth here amassed as the Knights of St. John prospered. Taken at Antoni Gaudi's Park Guell in Barcelona, Spain in 2010. A nice black and white rendering of the staircase spiraling through Christopher Wren's "Monument" in the heart of London. This is a nice shot of the rich interior of St John's Co-Cathedral on the island of Malta.  Its rich heritage is owed to the successes of the Knights of St John, who relocated to Malta after leaving the island of Rhodes. Real Oscar statues taken in the heartland of Hollywood, as part of our 2007 west USA trip. Taken in Rome, this is the interior of the famous Colosseum, post-edited with a sketch filter.

This gate is located in the surrounding area at the six harmonies pagoda, the structure was built during the Southern Song Dynasty (420-589), and improved during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing Dynasties (1644 -1911). These rock carvings ("The Feilai Feng grottoes") have existed in the hillside at Lingyin Temple in HangZhou for almost 1,000 years. This is a HDR-processed shot of the arch of Septimius Severus located in the Roman Forum in the ancient part of Rome.  The arch is still in excellent condition, especially compared to the rest of the forum. This is a tripod based long exposure shot of Sydney Harbour taken from the Taronga Zoo side (north harbour) around 10pm on New Year's Eve in 2007.  There is a certain serenity to the place. We have here a black and white rendering of a shot taken inside the ancient Trajan's marketplace in Rome.  I had trouble trying to capture the raw detail of the structure whilst contrasting it against the sheer size of the marketplace itself, the contrast seemed better in black and white - especially for the foreground. This shot was taken from up in the Dandenong ranges, east of Melbourne.  We happened upon some local wildlife who took an interest in us. A nice sunset shot from across St Kilda harbour. Taken from the grounds of Old Parliament House on Australia Day, this is a shot near the Aboriginal tent embassy.  The letters paint a very visceral picture at the heart of Aboriginal affairs. Walking around my neighbourhood in the summer evenings - especially around sunset - provides opportunity to get some interesting contrast shots.  The sky was a brilliant amber/apricot contrasted against the dark brick of the newly built terrace houses. In the western part of Canberra, the sun sets over the Brindabella ranges and Mount Stromlo.  On a summer's evening this can produce lovely effects if the timing's right. This photo was taken whilst on a Google Photo Walk back in 2012.  It was a brilliant day for photography, and I think this shot really captured the colours of the balloons against the backdrop of nearby Yarralumla. We recently ascended to the top of Mount Stromlo in Canberra's west on a nice day.  Although windy, we were treated to excellent regional views.
