As the moon sets and the light leaves us, its reflection shines through the natural arch and over the water whilst the Milky Way sits majestically above. Captured at Two Rocks, Western Australia with a Nikon D750 and a Zeiss Distagon ƒ2.8 15mm lens.
Taken from a time-lapse I was trying to capture at The Pinnacles, Nambung National Park, Western Australia. The moon was setting through some red dust at around 1am creating this beautiful red glow that resembled the setting sun when captured on a long exposure. I only noticed once I got hoe that the rock in the foreground looked like a fish eating the beginning of the milky way as it ached through the night sky.
The guiding light of Guilderton Lighthouse, Western Australia. Taken with my Nikon Df whilst my old Nikon D90 not so quietly clicked away to create a time-lapse video.
The Milky Way rising over Gabbadah, Western Australia.
A panoramic view of the Milky Way over the Guilderton Lighthouse, Western Australia. Comprising of 18 separate images stitched together with Auto Pano Giga 4.0 to create this massive 180º panorama.
My first time-lapse video! What better than trying to capture the Milky Way as it moves through the night sky over the Lighthouse at Guilderton, Western Australia.
The time-lapse was shot with a Nikon D90 over the course of 5 hours. I wanted longer but unfortunately I forgot to load the bigger SD card and the image quality isn't as good as I wanted, it has become quite obvious that I need a second full frame camera.

Perth as seen from Attadale. I took this image just after filming the moon rising over Wireless Hill.
This is my first attempt at filming a full moon rising.
I captured the video of the moon rising over Wireless Hill from 1.6km away on the other side of the Swan River in Attadale.
I surprisingly got the moon as it was rising, however the focus was out due to it already being dark when I got to where I was filming from. The video has been trimmed due to this but there has been no other manipulation whatsoever.
Technically this was quite challenging. I had to shoot it on my old Nikon D90 in video mode and I was using a Swarovski Habicht ST80 HD M spotting scope and a 1100mm F-mount camera adapter, giving me the equivalent focal length of around 1650mm.

A panoramic shot taken at one of the many salt lakes in the Yalgorup Nation Park, Western Australia. Consisting of 13 individual shots stitched together using Auto Pano Giga 4.0, by the time I'd finished shooting the sequence I was ankle deep in some of the most rancid smelling mud and water I have ever come across.
The foreground is naturally illuminated by the moon which was high in the sky behind me, as such I would not consider this shot an 'Astro' shot because of the lack of detail in the night sky.

A HDR image of Perth City, Western Australia from Mill Point. Aptly named 'The Suit' because once you see it, it's all you see.
Perth is an ever changing city with bigger and bigger building being built constantly. This is a HDR image of the city from Parliment House.

Any night of the week and you'll find people admiring this view of the Perth CBD. There is something particularly relaxing about standing here and taking in the sight of Perth and the Swan River. Taken from King's Park, Perth, Western Australia.
Cell Block No.3 of the Old Fremantle Prison, Fremantle, Western Australia.
One of the original cells in Cell Block No. 1 dating back to 1855. Four foot by seven foot, limestone walls with timber floorboards covering concrete. Frightfully hot in summer and freezing cold in winter.

Taken just after sunset on Cottesloe Beach, Western Australia. The sun's shape reflects from over the horizon in the atmosphere.
The Boat Shed in Perth, Western Australia. A popular photographers spot near on the river in the world's most isolated city. I really wanted to do something a little different to most other images of this iconic place, so I used an ultra wide lens and shot it as I would an astrophotography shot. I had to lower the ISO considerably compared to the usual astro settings due to the enormous light pollution (the city centre is just out of the frame to the left). Another night I will endeavour to get some shots for a panoramic image.
