A Moment In Time
The Zombies

Some times I stumble
And try to have it all
Let me be reckless
But catch me when I fall
The longest journey
Still has to have a start
Let me reach out with my heart

Like a rolling cloud
It leaves me blind
Feeling for the breath of angels
Trying to find that crooked line
To this moment in time

Im one of those photographers who, up until a few days ago, would refuse to go out and shoot if there were no clouds forecast.
Ive had this "thing" that you cant take a "good"or even a decent Landscape photo, without clouds in it.
Earlier this week, as I was watching the pending forecast and cloud conditions for Saturday morning, I made a conscious decision to challenge myself to shoot something, other than a horizon line and a sky.
So, we headed off down to Bare Island at La Perouse this morning, and after a few minutes, of looking everywhere, other than the horizon line, I found my compositions.
Not actually too hard at all tbh, and now I've learned a lesson, and trained my brain (the little bit that I have anyhow).
Hope you like "A Moment In Time"
Cheers, Mike

Spiritwalker
The Cult

Let it be beautiful when I sing the last song
I will give you even my body
Spiritwalker
Let all the children kiss the sun before they sing their last song
I will give you even my body
Spiritwalker

Let the sun shine on me when I sing the last song
I will give you even my body
Spiritwalker
Let all the children kiss the stars before they sing their last song
I will give you even my body
Spiritwalker

Spiritwalker...

Let all the children kiss the sun before they sing their last song
Let all the children kiss the sun before they sing their last song

I will have the whole world to make music with me

Spiritwalker...

Glittering Prize
Simple Minds

Shine On, Shine the Light on me,
In all of my Life so that much more I see
In the Light of his Love
In the Light of reflection
Oh what a world
Or sometimes oh so it seems
Eyes in the skies
In that silver gift friendship
A Glittering Prize
Is it the prize of lost loves
They can remember quiet sides of midnight
They can remember the attraction of fame
Like a Glittering Prize
I saw up on a clear day
First taking hearts
Then our last breath away

Just got back from a fantastic few days in Griffith NSW, with the family. Got to catch up with some great friends whilst there, and we had a blast!!
Headed out to Lake Wyangan on the Friday afternoon, after arriving, to scout out a comp fro the following morning. Sure enough, after checking with my compass, there were comps everywhere I looked, so I left a happy man.
The next morning, off I went at 6am, on what was a 15 min drive from our Motel.
Thought Id give myself around 15 mins before first light, to pick the correct comp, depending on how the cloud was looking, wind etc etc.
Found this comp, set up, and waited. 15 mins before sunrise, the sky was starting to get nice and red, but it was still quite dark.
5 mins before sunrise, still dark, and I'm beginning to scratch my head. At this stage, these trees should be getting some nice light on them from the rising sun to my left, but...nothing.
Out with the phone, good ol google, and onto my app for sunrise time.
6.55am...sunrise....SYDNEY!!!
DOH!!!
I type in Griffith NSW.....and Yay! (Not)
7.20am....sunrise Griffith
Paddy here forgot to calculate that I was now the best part of 6 hours inland from the horizon IN SYDNEY, and that sunrise here might just be a tad later....
Anyhow, the sun did eventually come up, and lit my trees and grasses, as I had planned, and I was happy out (eventually, after freezing my Irish Ass off for the best part of an hour waiting for it to happen).
A great spot, fantastic for bird watchers, better for Landscape Photographers.
Hope you like "Glittering Prize"
Cheers, Mike

Angels Fall
Breaking Benjamin

I try to face the fight within
But it's over
I'm ready for the riot to begin
And surrender
I walked the path that led me to the end
Remember
I'm caught beneath with nothing left to give
Forever

When angels fall with broken wings
I can't give up, I can't give in
When all is lost and daylight ends
I'll carry you and we will live forever, forever

Grey skies will chase the light away
No longer
I fought the fight now only dark remains
Forever
Divided I will stand
And I will let this end

When angels fall with broken wings
I can't give up, I can't give in
When all is lost and daylight ends
I'll carry you and we will live forever, forever

The sun begins to rise
And wash away the sky
The turning of the tide
Don't leave it all behind
And I will never say goodbye

When angels fall with broken wings
I can't give up, I can't give in
When all is lost and daylight ends
I'll carry you and we will live forever, forever
Forever, forever

Headed off down to Wollongong Harbour this morning on my lonesome. A big swell was forecast, so I thought I'd go for some drama and mood.
There was not one other person at the breakwall, the whole time that I was shooting, and I really wanted to get a person in the image, just to give it that human element.
So, with no one around, it was left up to myself to do the ultimate selfie. With the camera on a 10 sec timer, I sprinted out in front, and did my best moody human pose.
Its gonna take me at least three days to get over that mad sprint...Knackered ol Mikey it did!!!
Anyhow, home now, and the masseur is on the way!!
Hope you like "Angels Fall"
Cheers, Mike

Light My Way
U2

Oh, ultraviolet (oh)
Ultraviolet (oh)
Ultraviolet (oh)
Ultraviolet
Baby, baby, baby, light my way
I remember
When we could sleep on stones
Now we lie together
In whispers and moans
When I was all messed up
And I had opera in my head
Your love was a light bulb
Hanging over my bed
Baby, baby, baby, light my way
Oh, come on,
Baby, baby, baby, light my way
Oh, ultraviolet
Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet

A great night out in Sydney last night with Dex, Mike Hankey, Ian Burrows and Stephane.
We ventured up onto the Coathanger, to grab a few images, and I had been wanting to shoot this one for a few years, just never got round to it till last night.
The traffic and trains on the bridge is not good for Long Exposures, so I was shooting 20sec images, and trying to watch the traffic at the same time for slight breaks, to reduce the camera shake. Happy enough with this, although I'd like to have had the trails a bit smoother. Think I'll make another visit, and maybe try two super long LEs.
All in all, a great night out with some of Sydneys very best Urban and Cityscape photographers. The beer was great too...!!!
Hope you like "Light My Way"
Cheers, Mike
