250 meters from the coast line, it’s hard not to fall into the ocean out on the rock shelves at Bridge Water Bay. The low tide sends water over layer upon layer of rock …
In the deepest ocean
The bottom of the sea
They turn me
Why should I stay here?
Why should I stay?
I’d be crazy not to follow
Follow where you lead
They turn me
Turn me on to phantoms
I follow to the edge of the earth
And fall off
If they get the chance
And this is my chance
I get eaten by the worms
And weird fishes
Picked over by the worms
And weird fishes
I’ll hit the bottom
Hit the bottom and escape

Taken on the back beach of Blairgowrie/Sorrento, Mornington Peninsula, VIC.
My wife and I spent the day driving along the Great Ocean Road.
Below are a few shots from Wye River on our return home.
This week Neil and I drove down to Blairgowrie on the Mornington Peninsula’s coast for a sunset shoot. I always love it down that way, so much to see and it always offers something new and exciting. There wasn’t much of a sunset, but that’s never stopped me!
The last few photos of me out on the rockshelf were taken by Neil Boucher
An amazing sunset at the blowhole on the Flinders coastline, Victoria.
Got nice and wet, and the drive home was not pleasant in my saturated clothes, but worth it.
My new website is now launched !!
My homepage photo is titled ”Unknown”, one of my favourite photographs.
“Unknown” – Campbells Cove, Werribee South beach at dawn
I was down at Cape Schanck on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula with Neil, Rob & Simone, plenty to see and photograph.
Below is a track of our hike over the 6 hours we were there and one of many photos.

Yep, we’ve been at it again….the things we do ~ but boy it’s fun !!
Neil, Lee and I went to the ocean beach again for sunset shots on the rocks….and Neil has posted a fantastic shot of me as the waves were crashing in over the rock shelf that you’ve got to see…
Yep, it’s me….well it was me…

A good reminder to be careful when you’re on the coast for the unpredictable waves.
Just wanted to share some knowledge and the ‘how to’ for those who didn’t realise how you can recover your deleted images off your memory cards.
On the weekend I stupidly, but accidentally deleted my early morning long exposure photos off my 8GB CF card, including my ‘Point Lonsdale Pier at Dawn’, but here it is recovered:
Best practice I’ve found (learning from mistakes) is summed up here:
1. Format your memory card before any shoot, that way you’ll start from a clean/empty card and you won’t have to worry about going back and deleting old images (and then delete the wrong ones like I did)
2. If you do accidently delete your shots, don’t stress, remove your memory card from your camera straight away – this is the most important part – don’t take any more shots on that memory card – you could overwrite your deleted photos.
3. There are many programs you can download (most you have to pay for), but you can download a freeware program called “PC Inspector Smart Recovery” from Snapfiles here
For those with SanDisk Extreme memory cards, SanDisk distributes software with their Extreme media called ‘RescuPRO’ which can also be used to recover your files. Pays to check out the little disks that come with your memory cards…who would have thought !
4. Install and recover !
* I’d also recommend installing the software on your laptop, so if your on the road/away you can recover on the go and not wait till you get home
* Take a spare card with you so you can still keep shooting.
Hope this helps !
