Littoral not literal

Most of my photography is documentary, expressly intended to show its subject as clearly and literally as possible. Occasionally, as here, I’m tempted into altering a shot for expressive effect. I saw these trees on the Strahan beachfront early one evening, when the light was already fading to mistiness and ethereality…

For a more mundane view of Strahan, try my other blog, Green Path.

Magnetic Island from Castle Hill

Townsville’s skyline is dominated by Castle Hill, and its peak provides wonderful views of the city and the region, from Hinchinbrook Island (on a clear day) to Cape Cleveland and beyond, with Magnetic Island floating beautifully in Cleveland Bay.

This photograph is an old one (2005) but it’s still one of my favourites, perhaps because it was taken much earlier in the day than I usually visit the hill.
