Who Needs A Challenge

One of the things we really don’t do enough of is “Challenge Ourselves”


When I say challenge ourselves I mean both mentally, physically, and emotionally.  


It’s one of those things we generally only do when we have to, most of us don’t chase the challenge or go to the edge of where we feel comfortable. 

Snow Hiking

There are many ways in which we can challenge ourselves. 

The photo above was the start of a hike and weekend camp which I can safely say that 99% of people that live in Australia will never do. 

Like really what person in their right mind would go hiking and camping after a blizzard in the Kosciuszko National Park? hahahahaha

TBH – The hike on snowshoes was amazing, the countryside was even better.  THE LIFE EXPERIENCE IS PRICELESS!

Let’s fast forward to today, given the blizzard conditions over the last few days and snow falling In Canberra not to mention so early in the ski season, my question is.

If your dream was to walk up to the top of Mt Kosciusko and this weekend was the only time you had the opportunity, what would you do so you could achieve your dreams this weekend given the environmental factors? 

Say Goodbye to the Snow!

I would love to hear what you think of this image?

With the onset of spring and hopefully warmer weather, it’s a great time to go back to process some of the images I captured over the colder months.

This photo was taken as the sun was rising and hitting the Brindabella mountains as seen from my backyard.

The whole week was cold but not quite cold enough to get snow here in Canberra but it was cold enough to keep a good dusting of snow as you can see.

I figured if I can edit this photo I may as well record it so you guys can get to see the process and hopefully it will help you to improve not only a landscape photography but also your post processing.


Of course, if you want to learn more about landscape photography and post-processing keep an eye out for my workshops or send me an email.

Now onto the weekend. 🙂

I Hate You Mother Nature!!!!!

Don’t you just hate it when you drive to the Snowy Mountains so you can get a shot of the Milky way above the snow away from light pollution but mother nature has other ideas and brings on the clouds…… 🙂
Oh this image was created by 37 images and the original is a size of 18644 x 12342.

Want to know how to take these types of shots? Shoot me a message as I conduct workshops that walk you through the process of capturing and processing these images.
