New Release – Peace and Power

McKenzie Falls

Resting by the beautiful McKenzie Falls one feels at peace with nature. Yet as if by contradiction you get a real sense of awe for the almighty force and power of nature. Such is the dichotomy of the natural world we live in; peace, beauty and life; menacing power and decay. It’s natures reminder that we can’t have bliss without the existence of adversity. William Blake put it perfectly in his famous poem:

Man was made for joy and woe,
And when this we rightly know,
Through the world we safely go.
Joy and woe are woven fine,
A clothing for the soul divine.

It’s Your Road, and Your’s Alone – “Through the Mallee”

Through the Mallee

As we journey through life, all too often we allow the influence of others to guide our path. Whether it be from parents, teachers, a spouse, or society as a whole, we feel the daily pressures to conform, act responsibly, pursue respectable careers and to avoid risk. We feel we have to impress them; gain their respect.

But who’s life are we living? Don’t let others walk your road. After all, in life, you only get one shot. So listen to your heart. Follow your dreams.

It’s your road….. Your life.

Through the Mallee” is a reminder to follow your own road in life. You can see the road all too clearly. Have you the courage to follow it?

New Release – Cradle Of Fire

Cradle Of Fire

This right here has to be one of the greatest scenes we’ve ever had the pleasure of capturing. Just wow! Well played mother nature… You never cease to amaze us!

Named after it’s resemblance to a gold mining cradle, Cradle Mountain rises 1,545 meters above see level. The mountain is located within Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. At it’s foot lies the stunning glacially formed Dove Lake.

In this harsh and sometimes unpredictable alpine environment, it’s rare to strike weather conditions conducive to photography. Overcast, windy and cold conditions are the norm, often low lying cloud obstructing the view of the mountain completely. But on this particular morning, our very first visit to the mountain as photographers, conditions were absolutely perfect. There was hardly a breath of wind as the early morning mist crawled its way across the water. We set up our gear, and nervously awaited the sunrise. We were not disappointed! The sky erupted in a fiery display of vibrant colour, and was perfectly reflected in the mirror-like surface of Dove lake below. Sometimes you get lucky and find yourself at just the right place, at just the right time.

Simplicity is Bliss – “Solitude”

T018F wisdom
In the rat race of modern life, it’s common to feel overwhelmed. There’s deadlines to meet, things to buy, people to see and places to be. But you do have a choice. A blissful life begins with simplification. Identify what’s truly important to you, and eliminate the rest. Cull your commitments and belongings, limit your buying habits and spend more time with the people you love, doing the things you enjoy. Become the minimalist. Less truly is more.

“Solitude” is an image of simple beauty, and a reminder that sometimes we need to escape the complexities of life, and take a moment to regain our inner peace.

Be the sea – “Sculpted Sands”

T010F wisdomA manager uses a position of power and authority to command people to follow them. This is not true leadership. In 1963, 250,000 Americans didn’t show up to hear Dr. Martin Luther King speak because they had to; they did so because they wanted to. Like the life giving sea, great leaders stay low and humble, acting like servants rather than dominators. Suspending their ego, they empower and encourage others. Like the streams and rivers, those who believe and feel valued and inspired will naturally gravitate to the leader who stays low. Be the sea. Stay humble. Stay low.

“Sculpted Sands” symbolizes the power of true leadership.  A stream naturally gravitates to that which stays low.

Symbol Of Resilience – “Tree of Ice”

Tree of IceToo often we settle for comfort in our lives, the state of ease and satisfaction. Yet we are left wanting. If we are to see our wildest dreams become our reality, we must let go. Staying within our comfort zone is to stagnate and plateau. We must take a leap of faith and step outside our comfort zones to progress and grow. Try new things, be courageous and face your fears. Only then we discover how far we can really go.

To us, the “Tree of Ice” is a symbol of resilience; thriving in uncomfortable conditions. It’s simply incredible to think a Snowgum could withstand such an extreme environment since the mid 16th century!
