Here you can find photos I've taken, mostly of natural scenes. I try to avoid getting the roads in view, but that's mostly where I take them from.

Cold - 2023

The sun's flare through grey clouds


Among the trees - you feel an overwhelming presence, you're being stalked by something out there in the cold. In your mind's eye it rushes towards you, pulls you through the undergrowth...but the moment doesn't come. The forest doesn't move.

A paddock overgrown with dead grass


Under the moon's light - just you and nothing else. The land becomes a void. No fear, there is nothing out there. For a moment, the world contains only you and the sound of a gentle breeze.

On the road - the land and sky tilt away before you. The sky turns dark and the land falls silent in awe. As if in response, a growing urge to fall to your knees, to freeze and rot with the landscape around you.

Cairns - 2023

Rainforest trees


Cairns mudflats


I should like Cairns, but I don't. Something to do with having little else to do besides go out to the esplanade and either walk aimlessly up and down, or stare at the sea.

Sunset through smoky clouds


It doesn't matter where you go, there will be powerful skies.

Photos from home - 2022

Road overlooking a paddock


The view of a mountain from a cleared strip


It's actually happening now, I'm moving north. These photos are from some of my favourite places around home. Plenty more still to upload.

Drain - 2022

Blue water in a drain


Pretty trees beside a drain


This nice looking place, is the end of a big drain in town. Looks really nice, apart from the blue water. A lot like a postcard picture. I think it's cool that even cities can have places like this tucked away.

Waterways - 2021

A low creek


A gully in the forest


I take a lot of photos. Most of them turn out blurry or have too much glare or shadow. It's a shame because out of the hundreds of photos I've taken, there's only a handful worth sharing. Anyway, there's something magical about water. Especially when you find it somewhere unexpected. The pools, ponds and gulleys around here have had water in them for almost the whole year.

Edible Plants - 2021

After flicking through a weed guide, I decided to sample some of the edible plants around home. You should always be careful about eating wild plants, and as it turns out, I was not careful enough (well, I'm not dead at least). Please be absolutely sure of what you eat, and NEVER, EVER, eat wild mushrooms. Even mushroom experts kill themselves accidentally, from time to time. Also do not use my photos as a guide on their own - confirm with people you know irl or local experts (scientists, not hippies).



This is Chickweed. It tastes like lettuce, and would make a good lettuce substitute. I rate this 9/10 and would actually use it, especially in sandwiches. Sadly, the only patch around here is inside the yard, and gets trampled by my dogs.

Wood Sorrell


This is Wood Sorrell. It tastes sour, but not as much as a lemon. I rate it 8/10, and while I probably won't use it in meals, it does taste good enough to stop and eat a bit.

A plant that looks like Dill


Here we get into plants I was unsure about and spat out after tasting. I thought this was Fennel, but it turns out that it is definitely not. Thankfully I think it is Dill, another edible weed. Sadly I can't confirm this. I rate it 5/10, because it's very herby but still not bad. (It should be mentioned that some very poisonous plants, like Hemlock, resemble Fennell).

A Dandelion plant


This is Dandelion. I didn't try it. But apparently you can eat everything on it. It's milky and looks too similar to poisonous plants for my liking.

It would be great to eat more wild food, especially in cooking. I think the reality of wild foods is that most of them are mediocre vegetables. After misidentifying one, and possibly more plants, I don't want to take the risk anyway. I'll keep eating what I'm sure of though. To be fair, you can use some guides relatively safely. I used one from the ABC (who don't want to be sued because of accidents) that included pretty safe choices.

Other plants which I had hoped to find but couldn't include Cobbler's Pegs, Blackberries, Pigweed, and some succulent thing I forgot the name of. I decided not to try Mallow, Wild Spinach and Nettles. The first can be poisonous or edible depending on the soil, the second I couldn't be sure I had found, and the last is a bit inconvenient. In my area there is also cactus fruit, which taste nice but are a lot of trouble, and blackberry nightshade, which has berries that are edible when ripe but poisonous when they aren't. In general if it looks like a tomato, it's poisonous (solanums).

Wild Brassica


This is possibly Wild Brassica. Tastes like...brassica, but it's so small that I don't think it's worth eating. There is quite a lot of it though. 4/10.

Deep Green - 2021

Monitoring mulberries


Forest canopy


I want more rain. Again. The tank is nearly empty, and it'd be nice for everything to get a "boost" before summer. Here's some lush green pictures.

Wattles - 2021

Wattles beside the road


Wattles beside a muddy road


Wattles are obviously doing well since the changes around here. There are so many! I've counted at least 8 kinds, although there's only two pictured here. It;s also nice to see the peaches along the creeks flowering, I thought most of them had died.

Ironbark - 2021

Ironbark trees frame the view of a hill


Lush grass at the foot of some Ironbarks


I finally explored the road on the other side of the mountain nearby (I won't say which, for privacy reasons). I was so tired by the time I got there, and someone has fenced off the road, so I didn't travel far along it. It was beautiful though, especially on a cloudy day. It was nice to see some Ironbarks that are still alive, but they still don't look too healthy.

Skies - 2021

Cloudy blue sky
Grey clouds

I've been told I should share some of the photos I've taken of the sky. Actually, I save these for use in paintings, but I don't often get around to using any of them. It is incredible how impressive the sky can look sometimes.

Signs - 2021

A keep out sign in a forest


It seems like no matter where you go, there will always be signs of humans having been nearby. Nature is not unexplored, or particularly natural, in this day and age. We can still appreciate what we've got: even something as unappealing as a roadside is important to conserve. I've been trying to find somewhere in my neighbourhood that feels untouched as far as the eye can see, but so far I've not come across anywhere like that.

The view from under a drain


The drain here feels almost surreal. Well made infrastructure out in the middle of nowhere, still clean and untouched by graffiti. It brings with it a certain vibe, and seems to say "This is a human place now".

Creek Flow - 2021

Floodwater reaches past a gate
Ponds in a forest

I've been hoping for flooding and it's finally happened. The first and last photos show the creek near to my house, and the second photo is of some ponds created in a forest. Hopefully the creek will have water for a long time. Maybe I should compress the photos a little less next time.
