    Hey Guys,

    Thought I'd share some shots from some recent trips around W.A :)

    Everything shot on the Nikon D810 with either Nikon 14-24mm/Nikon 16-35mm F4 or Sigma 35mm 1.4 ART.

    It's been a pretty busy couple of months in every aspect for me but have enjoyed every little but of spare time I have out shooting :)

    1. Taken out in Karajini National Park, one of the many beautiful waterfalls to capture :)

    2. Another taken at Karajini at the Hamersley Gorge, this place is just stunning and we actually went for a swim in this one afterwards :)

    3. I call this one "The Lady" I was just flicking over my images and this face just jumped out of me, Also taken at Karajini :)

    4. The textures and colour found in the layers of rock millions of years old just had me staring at walls a lot of the time (I was that guy) this is one of those walls :)

    5. The beautiful savannah type area looking back over the Karajini National Park and taken from Mount Bruce, I just really liked the light falling on the terrain :)

    6. I headed out to the Pinnacle formations north of Perth for the Blood Moon event on Wednesday, I really wanted to create something a bit different and I just love the Martian landscape of the pinnacles so I thought I'd put them together, 3 focus stacked shots + sky exposure + moon exposure :)

    7. The "Icecream" dunes just south of Cervantes Western Australia are some of the most beautiful, white and pristine dunes I've had the pleasure of shooting, We were treated to the Milky Way and a Full Moon rising in this location allowing me to capture some beautiful detail in the sand :)

    Anyway hope you enjoy :)

    These are some of the most amazing shots I have seen.

    Number seven is mind blowing. And I can't find EXIF data or am I just missing it? Exposure time etc would be lovely.

    Fantastic set, thanks for sharing.

    Is the starburst in #7 real or pp'd? Looks ultra clean. :)

    Do you know when images are really good? When you've posted in a thread, you get notification of new posts, and every time you access the thread to read the new posts, you look again at the images at the top of the page.

    You win. Even with my crappy laptop.:thumbup:

    If we didn't know this just really happened, it'd look manufactured.

    First I have to find my jaw.
    Then I have to pick it up off the floor.

    Absolutely stunning set of images.... thanks for sharing them with us :)

    How tall is it from the waterfalls to where you are standing (it's hard to gauge distance in your photos).

    Great shots!

    However, I think to get the ultimate recognition of your efforts, you need to write a page or two of text about how you have been wanting to shoot No 6 for decades, and, finally, the stars an dmoon aligned, and you found just the right position, and for a single instant, everything came together for one magical shot...

    'icecream dunes'. Thats what my wife n kids called it too. Its not too comfortable in the summer during the day, but must have been awesome out there during the evening. Love the depth you have on that shot.
