First Video tour - Forrester Rocks

I was pretty impressed by Jonathan's first embedded video in one of the photographic guides and thought I'd give it a go on my outing last weekend. I went to Forrester Rocks and took my little Panasonic Lumix LX3 and shot a few simple videos of the area. See what you think.

I welcome any feedback

Cape St. George Lighthouse Ruins (Jervis Bay)

This is a very interesting place... in fact a place I would very much like to photograph. My old man actually took some shots there earlier this year, and I have this location in mind for some light painting in the New Year.

So it was with interest that I read Richard Cordell's guide to St. George Lighthouse Ruins just South of Jervis Bay.

Sylvania Waters Jetty

I must admit when I saw this guide I was surprised that such jettys existed in Sydney.

Check out this very quaint little jetty in Sydney's Sylvania Waters. This guide is courtesy of David Haworth.

Stockton Beach by Brent Pearson

Here's a guide by "yours truly". Last weekend I had the pleasure of camping out at Stockton Beach with my old man and a few other photographic buddies. Also bought my young son along who had a blast.

Anyway, Stockton Beach is a great location for a photographic adventure. Less than 2 hours from Sydney, it combines, shipwrecks, sand dunes, 4WDing, lakes, Mad-Max scenery.

This is a lovely little tidal pool that is photogenic during the day and night (no nasty sodium vapour lights). Click here to view the photo guide for Newport Beach by yours truly.


Ruined Castle in the Blue Mountains by Darren Pearce

This is Darren's second guide (thank Darren).

It is really nice to start building up a few more guides that are outside the Sydney metro area.

This guide is for a walk in the Blue Mountains called "Ruined Castle".... looks like a lovely walk. I look forward to giving this a try the next time I am up in the Blue Mtns
