I visited the Mount Lofty botanic gardens in the Adelaide Hills recently, which is a quite different experience to visiting the city botanic gardens, especially because on this particular day, it was almost empty, other than a couple of lone wanderers. Other times I have been there it’s been filled with families and other people,…Read More
This is a spot I have visited several times to take photos, but I have never seen it this green! It honestly feels like a secret fantasy world, even more so when it’s overrun with greenery, and only enhanced further by the fact that it kind of is a bit of a secret, off the beaten track sort of place. I think it’s beautiful how untouched it is.Read More
As I’ve definitely mentioned several times, I love photographing nature. But trees have been something I often shied away from, since I never really knew how to photograph them well to highlight their beauty. They always seemed far more extraordinary and amazing in real life. But… here are some pictures I recently took of trees!…Read More
This is a series of film photographs of ragged and unruly nature landscapes as inspired by the photographer: Dave Rothschild. I have been intrigued by his work for quite some time now and decided when I finally loaded a black and white roll of film into my camera, to give it a go!Read More
My words are the leaves the trees grow,
I need them so I can bloom.
To stop writing is to leave me lost

I bought a new camera and these are photos from the first couple of adventures I’ve had with it 🙂Read More
Sometimes I wish I could be like a tree.
If I were a tree at least I’d know my purpose (or I wouldn’t know I had one).
But instead I’m here, not still but not moving, questioning…
Who am I supposed to be?Read More
Today the trees told me
That when their branches creak above me
It means they’re listening
And if I hear them whispering
They’re talking about me.
Today the trees told me
All the things they overhear
When we’re near enough
And our minds are loud
Every thought we think is clear.
The trees talked and listened to me today
