There is something deep within our human soul that resonates when we view a captivating landscape scene. Some say this is a genetic memory that goes back to the time when humankind first descended from the trees and discovered the broad landscapes of the African savannah.
I have always loved landscapes and have been fortunate to visit many remote and interesting parts of Australia and Papua New Guinea. Moving to Cairns 18 years ago, I was struck by the majesty and diversity of the scenery, the mountains, rainforest, rivers, waterfalls and the Reef and the advent of digital photography, has allowed me to try and capture something of the beauty of this area.
Can there be anything more pleasurable than to visit a beautiful scene, set up tripod, camera, lenses and filters and then wait for the precise moment when the light is just right. It is a bit like fishing. Nine times out of ten you come home empty handed but that tenth time when you capture an image of beauty makes it worthwhile.
