Scale

There is nothing quite like the feeling that you are standing on top of the world. 

Atop The Horn, at Mount Buffalo, with its sweeping 360 degree views of the Australian Alps and plateaus, the vastness and space make you feel small and insignificant. It is an exhilarating sensation to swivel and view the magnificent scale of the Mount Buffalo National Park spread out before you.

At 1,723 metres elevation, The Horn is the highest point in the Mount Buffalo National Park, on the western side of the Victorian Alps.

Pyrmont Bridge

The Pyrmont Bridge is one of the world’s oldest surviving electrically operated swingspan bridges. The first bridge began operating in 1857 and the current swingspan bridge opened in 1902. The bridge provided the main transport route between the city and Sydney’s growing western suburbs while the swingspan allowed tall vessels to access Darling Harbour. Today, more than 5 million pedestrians cross the bridge each year.

Haunted Window?

This photo was taken at the old Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum in Beechworth. Over 3,000 people died in this place and at times in its history, the treatment and conditions for the patients was nothing short of horrific. I took this picture on a ghost tour and noticed something in the window. What do you see? Is it the face of a boy peering in? Or simply pareidolia?

La Cantina

Distracted by wine (…especially red wine), I will always pause when passing a winery, to sample their wares if appropriate! Also, these bottles look super shiny and pretty all stacked up and ready to buy!

Swing Bridge

From serious….


To silly….


Photos of our wedding day on the swing bridge at the base of Mt Buffalo. I love the contrast in the two photos and the movement of the bridge as we jump up and down. You can see the wooden wave!

McKenzie Falls

The falls in the upper section (pictured above) form a triangle shape  (delta 🔺) and depict constant change as the water rushes and flows, spilling down to the next level. 


Even in the lower section, the pool is not the end of the line. The water continues on, escaping out a narrow mouth down the river. 


Continually changing; moving water.

Mullinmurr

Story: Uncle Freddie Dowling, Artist: Anderson Hunt

This is a sculpture along the Bullawah Cultural Trail telling the creation story of the platypus. Platypus (Mullinmurr) was born of mismatched love of Widjul (black duck) and Nunjarri (water rat), who were forced into a nomadic life due to their union. The Mullinmurr story explores the playful side of relationships and the dangers of forbidden love.
