Snow covered surf…? Wild Weekly Photo Challenge: Now


Summer is all about sunshine, surf and bronzed bodies. And when you live on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, summer is also about wild weather, tropical storms and cyclones.

Mother Nature in all her fury can certainly create the unique and beautiful, allowing those to take in the moment as it is now…

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge: People in nature

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond


What lies beyond your own space? Different faces, places, sights and sounds. This weeks Photo Challenge was apt for me as I have been travelling of late, gone beyond my own space and whilst there found beautiful faces, spaces, sights and sounds that lay far beyond my own.
Here are a few…

what lies beyond his infectious smile...?

Pangkor Island, Malaysia

I’ve been away.

Away exploring another land, another culture, another way of life. It was beautiful, exciting and challenging and shared with a dear friend. Yet I missed something I had never missed before.

And that is where I am now and I find myself smiling. For I am where I need to be. And it was here all along.
