How Photographing Flowers and Leaves Can Help You Be a Better Photographer – #52PicsProject   It’s been raining on Australia’s south east coast for near on 3 weeks now.

Earlier in the year I had the honour of being included in an article published by Photography Talk – 32 Travel Photographers You Need to Check Out.

Wilsons Promontory is a national park in South Gippsland, Victoria. We chose this place for our annual pre-Christmas holiday – a beautiful, and in parts wild, section of the coast, and the most southern tip of the Australian mainland.
