Autumn?The Autumn colours come out early in the Rockies. Late Summer brings gorgeous yellow trees to their peak on the low on the mountain slopes.
Hamilton FallsSpring time at Hamilton Falls in BC, I found the rock around the falls to be equally stunning. A short walk from the Emerald Lake parking.
Center piece at the river bend, Johnston Canyon, AlbertaThis cave found underneth one of the lookouts features a stunning center piece of rock. The waterfall is still frozen on top on the left.
Australia Telescope Compact ArrayAfter visiting these Telescopes earlier in the day I was faced with a decision at sunset. My camp was on a lake with perfect water front sunset views, but these telescopes were only 5 minutes drive up a dirt road. The sky started to light up and I headed for the telescopes. When I arrived the telecopes were moving on there tracks and re positioning there dishes. I shot with my tripod on the other side of the "do not enter, Federal Police" fence to get everything lined up. Story continued on next photograph."The Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA), at the Paul Wild Observatory, is an array of six 22-m antennas used for radio astronomy. It is located about 25 km west of the town of Narrabri in rural NSW (about 500 km north-west of Sydney)"Source: http://www.narrabri.atnf.csiro.au/ "Five of the dishes can be moved along a three-kilometre (2 mi) railway track. The sixth antenna is situated three kilometres west of the end of the main track. Each dish weighs about 270 tonnes (270 long tons; 300 short tons)."

Mt Bartle Frere
Irrigator stretchA short drive from Camp in Donald, BC. I couldn't belive my luck when I came across this irrigator lined up the Sunrise.
Naramata FallsIt's easy to completely miss this trail while traveling through the Okanagan, luckily Marta did her research! A short trail heads up past some impressive looking boulders and cliff faces finishing at a beautiful multi stage waterfall. It was difficult to get a angle on the falls to include as much water as possible.
Margaret fallsClose to Salmon Arm in BC this short hike quickly rewards with a great waterfall viewpoint.
Fintry FallsWe stumbled upon this waterfall by accident while checking out Fintry PP near Kelowna BC. The trail is a long stair case climbing up the hill next to the falls. It has been raining for two days and the fall water was aggressively crashing down the chute.
Crumps SunsetA hidden gem close to Summerland Crump camp has great access and is close to town. I had lots of fun running around at Sunrise and Sunset photographing the scenery.
Spring time in SkahaThe Skaha bluff in BC is an incredible place for rock climbing! With over 1000 climbs spanning over 66 cliffs all with easy and scenic access it made for an epic holiday destination.
EntranceThe beginning of the plunge at the Natural Bridge in BC. This panorama was shot with my lovely old 50mm.
Passage of TimeLocated near Emerald Lake BC the "Natural Bridge" is a waterfall transforming into a canyon. The Spring time flow was incredibly powerful as it roared through the rock.
Glade's SecretTalking to some locals we heard about small waterfall hidden in the small town of Glade. After taking the short ferry ride we found our selves in a very small and peaceful town with a little hiking trail made by sleds.
Skipping StonesMarta and I pulled into Waitabit creek camp ground an hour before Sunset. The light blue rush of snow melt ran past the calmer shallow waters which gave me an amazing vantage for the last minutes of light.
Ice CloudsThe Bow river is melting for the spring leaving flakes of ice to float down the river.
Englishman River FallsEven without much rainfall this cascade into a slot canyon still displayed power and beauty.
Morning in the Scenic RimTo get a jump on the heat we left early for Lamington National Park located in Queensland's Scenic Rim region. The valleys were full of flowing fog illuminated by the days first light so we pulled the car over at Robert Sowter Park lookout for a moment to watch the trees be reviled one by one.
Dream worldStrong sun through morning fog, a classic view in the Scenic Rim. Queensland, Australia.
Waterfalls galoreOne of many stunnying falls on the Toolona Creek Circuit, Lamington NP.
Strangler figHiking on the Toolona Creek Circuit in Lamington National Park I encounted one of the largest and most overhanging stranglers I have every seen in the rain forest. What a beauty!!
Crisp and Clear at the GorgeThe zero degree nights here in Beechworth, Victoria are perfect for shooting out into space. Tonight I decided to see what I could find as a suitable foreground for the night sky in the local area. I headed for Beechworth Gorge and found a good view point on the narrow car bridge. I jammed the camera lens between the bars of the guard rail only able to support it with one tripod leg to get this composition I hoped it would all stay still long enough for the exposure. It took a few attempts to light paint the cascades with my headlamp the way I envisioned all the while ignoring the numb hand feeling I though I had left far behind in Canada. I'm keen to get back here during the day to explore some more!
Rising levelsIt has been a wet Winter here on the NSW/VIC border. Hume lake is getting up to capacity making for a muddy walk around the remaining edges. I love these big old trees poking out of the water in the fleeting Sun light, it's quite an unusual look.

MallorcaOld windmills and blossoming almond trees.
Phantom FallsToday we did a great little waterfall circuit in Great Otway NP, just off the Great Ocean rd. Phantom Falls has a cool ambiance even when it's running low. We imagined what it would be like after a heavy down pour with water pumping off the entire cliff length, very impressive!
