Technicolour Rocks


One of my favourite shots from the day at Terrigal



I’ve always had a passion for rocks – maybe I should have studied geology instead of finance.  They are just simple, beautiful objects – such intricate detail if you just take the time to look at them.



 I was rushing back to the car whent he rain set in, but had to stop and unload my gear to get this macro shot of the rocks.  It’s so intricate in detail.


Went out looking for some piers to shoot with the storm clouds, but couldn’t find any decent ones that weren’t “private”, so I moved onto the Skillion at the Central Coast – got a few shots in, but discovered the amazing rocks in the area, just back from where I usually shoot seascapes.  So many different textures in a small area – I went crazy shooting macros on nearly all the rock areas… gorgeous way to spend a windy, cold and rainy afternoon…

Busy as a Bee

Spring is here and the bees are out in force on my unmown backyard!  My biggest dilemma with this shot was the correct spelling of “pollination” e or i!  After googling university websites, I have decided to stick with “i” even thought it looks wrong initially 🙂

Hope you enjoy my macro shots!
