Spent the day bush-walking with my girlfriend in Dorrigo World Heritage National Park, NSW Australia. Perfect rainy conditions made for some beautiful misty forest shots. These falls usually aren't that spectacular, however after all the wet weather we've had lately it was flowing in full force. Enjoy.
Not one of my most recent photos. To be honest I haven't shot any seascapes in months. I miss it so much!! Anyway, Choas on the Mid North Coast, NSW Australia, as an afternoon storm hits the beautiful Hungry Head, Urunga.
The waves were pounding the shoreline, so heavy and in huge sets. You can't even seen the distant horizon in this one, the spray from the waves quickly evaporating into humid summer air.
Pikes Peak and Garden Of The Gods Park bathe in the pre-dawn light on New Years Day morning, the first day of our winter photo meetup. We froze our collective butts off (it was far below zero) but well worth it! The light was just beautiful, really clear and clean...and you have to love alpenglow!
Anyways I hope you all like it John

A play of light as showers pass through the mountains while the sun illuminates them at the same time. Hanalei Bay can be seen on the right. At full size you can see 4 or 5 waterfalls coming down the mountains. 2 horizontal images stitched.
Well, it seems this is the spot of the month as I've had some great fun here recently. Under certain conditions the rock as the edge of the beach become exposed and in this case were glowing green! Last time I was here the green was not nearly as intense but this time...oh yes. The key of course is to find a way to get our eyes in to the photo. Find a notch, wait for a little wavelet and BLAM!
Also got to use my 3stop Rev-GND for the first time in a successful manner. Only had to blend a slight bit of the hillside on the left...everything else was one shot! (for those non-photo dorks this means a lot less work controlling dynamic range).
In a perfectionist sense I would like the sun further to the right to really balance the photograph completely, alas, I can not move the sun, only wait a month or two. Although you might all get sick of Ke'e shots
