It’s time to raise our Facebook Page membership numbers so I plan to hold some regular competitions to encourage you all to join our Page and invite your friends to do join as well.
To start the ball rolling I will be giving away a 20″ x 30″ unstretched Canvas of one of our newest release prints “White Thunder 4”.
The prize will be drawn when our Facebook Page membership reaches our first milestone of 250 people.
To be entered into the draw all you have to do is invite as many friends as possible to come and join our Facebook Page and add a comment in the Competition #1 Entries note (click here to see the note) to let us know what you’ve done.
Additionally new members can let us know who recommended them by adding a comment in the Competition #1 Entries note (click here to see the note) and you will both get an another entry in the draw.
When we reach 250 members the winner will be drawn by Councilor Tracey Roberts, Deputy Mayor of Wanneroo, Western Australia.

Thank you for your support and Good luck 🙂
It’s easy to get bogged down in front of the computer and forget why you do what you do, get complacent and lose that drive and excitement to make the most out of a career (or hobby) in Nature Photography.
For me Photography is not just a job it’s a lifestyle, it’s a way of doing what I love, being outdoors and being around my family at the same time. To make the most of this lifestyle it’s important to remember why we do the things we do when the computer’s are crashing or the clients aren’t paying bills (not that we have any of those).
So when you need a bit of inspiration where do you turn?
Personally I look at the photographers I revere, their images and lifestyles and that refuels my dreams and reminds me why I love my job. Without dreams what is the point, if we are not striving to achieve our goals and better ourselves then we’re going nowhere and getting lost on the way.
This new release is from a set of shots I took from the beach just north of Mindarie Marina.
The cloud formations were incredible and there were enough breaks in the clouds to let some of that fiery orange sunset through.
The whole scene reminded me of some great furnace burning in the sky with the clouds majestically drifting across the opening, hence the name “Hidden Fires”.
