Australia is a wondrous continent unique in its geological formation, fauna, flora and people. It can also be a dangerous place to people out of touch with their environment. Australia is also home to the most poisonous land snake in the world, the taipan. There are more than 60 species of poisonous snakes. But, despite of having so many poisonous snakes the attacks are not that high in Australia because most of its species are not aggressive in nature. I am not sure that "I hope you like it" it is appropriate for the subject of this ...

A Merry Christmas to all in DSLRusers land and a happy new year.

Here's hoping that this pesky virus will take a long hike into the ether and disappear for good. And most importantly here's hoping and praying that Gary will have a healthy 2022!

Regards from the always-raining north coast of NSW.

I had some fun making this picture during our last lock down. I took the pictures with my mobile phone on a tripod, but I edited them and compiled the final picture with a program I hadn't used before on my tablet, as the phone was too small for my fingers. I hope you like it.

Ethereal is the reflection of a glass sculpture on the wall behind. The sculpture itself hang from the ceiling and was illuminated by colour lights; while the strong daylight coming through the gallery window and hitting the dangling sculpture created many phantasmagorical shapes on the wall. One of which is at the centre of this picture. I hope you like it.

This week we spend a few days at the beach and during an evening walk I saw a rock being mercilessly battered by the incoming tide. I noticed with endless fascination how the water splashed and formed myriads of capricious shapes for a fraction of the second and quickly vanished, each shape was different. It then occurred to me a person is the same. Each person is shaped and cracked differently by the relentless tide of life and the countless and multi shaped experiences we live through, each situation eventually disappearing like those shapes ...

I took his week's picture while I was having a coffee at a coffee shop. I liked the image reflected in the building across the street. I hope you like it.

I took this picture in Norway in 2019. It's the first time and it will possibly be the last I ever traveled that far north. We disembarked at Kirkenes, very close to the Russian border, and traveled by land to another port to catch the boat on the way back south. This bus trip along narrow and winding roads allowed us to admire the northern grass vegetation and see the fjords from another perspective. I hope you like it.

Some times a quick look at the sky is all you need to comprehend how powerless you are against nature. I took this picture a few years ago, but it just caught my eye. I hope you like it.

I took it in India when we visited a salt mine in 2010. Hard work under an unforgiving sun. I hope you like it.

The motorised bicycle was becoming popular in the early 1900s, but the positioning of a passenger in relation to the cyclist had not been quite decided yet. The Belgian company Minerva came out with a 2 HP 239 cc side valve with Mills and Fulford fore-car frame in 1903. This contraption could cruise at 30 km/h and was capable of a top speed of 50 km/h. I hope you like the photo of this week, which I took at the GOMA motorcycle exhibition early this year.

I took this picture of the hotel we were staying at in Perth two years ago. I found the lighting and lines interesting.

A couple of weeks ago we traveled to the Red Centre of Australia. You have possibly seen the iconic film 'The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert' in which three people climb a hill in high heels dressed in feathers as if they were to perform at the Moulin Rouge. Well, they climbed to the top of Kings Canyon in the Northern Territory of Australia. Two of us did just that with a backpack each containing two liters of water. Mine, loaded with camera gear was 6kg heavy. We climbed what the locals call the "Heart Attack Hill" ( ...
