Vivid Sydney

10/06/2012

One of my favourite festivals here is Vivid Sydney, particularly for the amazing display of lights. This past weekend I joined the crowds in a dazzling and stunning collection of lights, sculptures and art. While I’m not brilliant with photography I managed to capture some of the magic from the night.

Storms and sunsets

13/01/2012

Disclaimer: I am not a photographer. However when presented with such beauty nature takes care of the hard work for you – no Photoshop required. Such was the case this week when we witnessed spectacular sunsets and storm clouds. I found myself sitting on the balcony, transfixed on the fairy floss (cotton candy to North Americans) clouds, feeling like all was right in the world.  Threatening but beautiful storm clouds rolled in on another evening. Charcoal and deep blue clouds blanketed most of the sky but left a corner for large, fluffy clouds bathed in the glow of the sunset in the other direction. I love when dusk gives us such visual treats.
