Towards the end of last year I was chuffed to be asked to take some photographs for a local campaign funded by Blue Mountains Economic Enterprise – Mountains Made. In a nutshell, the campaign seeks to support and promote existing local creative talent as well as letting those not yet in the know, if you’re an artist and you’re thinking about relocating to the mountains, then you’d be making a fabulous choice! :)
Here’s my pick of the bunch. Amazing local talent…
Fashion designer – Jenny Kee
Filmmaker – Matt Drummond
Textile Designer & artist – Julie Paterson and writer – Amanda Kaye
Artists – Hannnah & Mark Surtees (Studio Ham)
Writer – Tegan Bennett Daylight

The sky was AMAZING this afternoon! Beautiful clouds, beautiful colours. Here are my favourite snaps from a rather spectacular show, thank you Mother Nature, you clever, creative thing you… :)
As Winter is almost upon us I’d like to squeeze in a quick post that pays homage to lovely, lovely Autumn. These photographs were taken 2 weeks ago and even since then, so many trees have lost their leaves and all those brilliant reds and yellows and oranges have bid their farewells and made way for the subdued shades of Winter. Au revoir Autumn… missing you already!
There have been some cra-aaazy storms this past month or so! I do love a good storm, as long as it’s not life threatening and also I like to be tucked up somewhere safe, warm and cosy with perhaps some top shelf red wine and exotic cheeses involved. About 3 weeks ago I was out on our deck watching this beauty roll in. The sky was that amazing Australian blue but within minutes these great dark clouds had muscled their way in and then voila, an almighty storm was upon us. Amazing stuff! :)
