What is Beauty and Where can you find it?

To see beauty, to feel it, to breathe it and portray it

In your Photography, you must have an open heart.

A Heart filled with love and appreciation,

For all that lies around you.

Lighthouse Beach in stormy weather.


On the last morning at Sugarloaf Point at Seal Rocks,

Stormy weather settled in, the sun broke through the clouds intermittently,

Lighting up sections of the beach.

I see beauty everywhere in stormy weather,

From the sultry, rain-laden clouds to the way the Ocean mist drifts by you.

Standing on the edge of the cliff overlooking Lighthouse Beach,

I could feel the beauty, and the majesty and I breathed it in,

Rejoicing in all Nature’s Glory.

Looking Up at The Grand Arch at Jenolan Caves.


To me, the contrast and colours of the rock against the Blue sky,

And the shaded vegetation, Is truly Beautiful.

Flowers are beautiful too, and I Photograph many.

Silvery, soft hairs on tiny new leaves always gives a moment of delight.



Your frame of mind, greatly affects the way in which you view the world.


“Beauty cannot be defined,

It may be a touch, a thought, a sound or something you see.

But Beauty is something that always lies,

In the eyes of the Beholder.”
