A recent trip to Australia to visit family provided some stunning picture opportunities. The usual iconic tourist destinations had to be visited and photographed but every step out of the door presented new and exciting images.
This was a family holiday rather than a photographic trip so nothing was planned and all the pictures are purely opportunistic. None the less there are some striking images and I'm particularly pleased with the shots of the yacht under sail in Sydney Harbour practicing for The Sydney to Hobart Race just a few days before Christmas. These were taken from the Manly ferry as we approached the city on our first visit to the City centre.
Sydney, Newcastle, The Blue Mountains, The Hunter Valley, Lake Macquarie and The Pacific Coast all feature in the final edit. An amazingly exciting country that I can't wait to visit again.
