This is a shot taken at sunset on the evening of the 20th Dec 2013 at 7:48pm. My family and I took a road trip to Cape Town in December 2013, I had planned to do loads of travel and landscape photo shoots over the 3 week break. We had previously stayed in Simon’s Town, originally established as a harbour and later became a Royal Naval Base, it is a magical and historical place, and I’d go back in a heartbeat! I quickly fell in love with Cape Town’s abundance of natural beauty, it’s just…
I set out to do some long exposure photography on this particular day, I managed to grab a few decent shots facing the ocean before all the usable light was all but gone. As I began packing it in, I turned around and noticed this magnificent composition and fading light just over the Table Mountain National Park, and knew immediately that I had to grab just one last shot. Sometimes in life we get so caught up focusing in a particular direction that we forget to stop every now and then and…
This is a shot taken at sunrise on the morning of the 2nd Jan 2015 at 5:29am. I couldn't help but think how fortunate I was to witness the dawn of a new day, something I think many of us simply take for granted.

This is a photo I took at around 6pm one evening on the Kwazulu Natal South Coast, Scottburgh, South Africa on 2nd April 2014. It wasn't a particularly spectacular sunset, in fact the entire day had been rather dull, it just didn't seem to do much, not quite sunny but not entirely overcast either. The ocean was pretty
Timing Is Everything
This is a long exposure shot, and it is one my personal favorites. This shot was actually one of the first long exposure shots I ever took with my B+W ND 110 filter. I had in fact not set off with the intention of taking this shot from just under the pier, I had every intention of including the pier in my shot but certainly not from this particular angle. The reason I ended up under the pier is because it started raining :-) but it just goes to show that sometimes timing is everything and…

Day Of Reckoning
This is a long exposure photo I took at 6am What caught my attention was the contrast of the vibrant green algae growing on these rugged rocks which all appeared to be leading toward the beautiful sunrise slowly unfolding over the ocean. This photo was taken in Scottburgh, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa on the 4th of
Lost in thought This is a photo I took at around 6pm one evening on the 2nd April 2014 on the Kwazulu Natal South Coast, Scottburgh, South Africa.
