In a few days I will move from this place … the place where fog is born, and where the icy dawn has been my companion for many days. I truly embraced the winter cold waiting for sunrise, and the lonely silence of the night sky waiting for Scorpius and Orion. The memory of frozen hands will now travel with me to warmer climes in Jervis Bay on the South Coast of NSW where another life chapter will begin.
The natural landscape enfolds Bathurst on all sides – rolling hills and the Macquarie River meandering through its fertile valley. Where I have lived high on the edge of town for this past decade, the predominant feature has been the weather … I’ve had plenty of warning of approaching storms, and often – time to quickly assemble camera and tripod in the hills or over the back fence.
My passion for dawn and dusk and the milky way as it arches across the landscape is apparent for anyone who looks at my website, and if you’ve followed me for awhile you will have seen some or all of these images … but they represent the photographic legacy I take with me of my time here in this special place.
