Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Resolution Sand Textures 3


10 Jun

We’ve got a fresh batch of FREE high-resolution sand texture images for you this week. Given the infinite possibilities afforded by nature and the waves spilling onto the shore, it’s no wonder we’ve been able to bring you a third set of unique and interesting textures related to it. We even captured the clever work of some local crabs cleaning out their burrows!

Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-resolution Sand Textures


03 Jun

Armed with our 100mm f2.8L macro lens (150mm equiv. with the 7D) we headed out to our local beach and shot some different grades of sand up nice and close. Even we were surprised by the beauty to be found in the tiny particles. Check them out! We’ve done our best to get corner-corner sharpness, so you at home have the greatest flexibility in how you treat the images in your design projects.

Photo of the Day: ‘Firewoman’ Triptych


01 Dec

'Firewoman' - Fire Dancing Lady

An older series of photos that I took of my aunt Jane whilst fire dancing at her house in Taree on the Mid-north coast of New South Wales a couple of years ago. There were others, but I like these three together.

Image of the Day: Saltwater Panorama


10 Jun

This ultra-wide panorama is an amalgamation of about 15 photographs taken at Saltwater beach, near Taree on the NSW mid-north coast, Australia.

Saltwater is an ever-changing seascape, as the ocean molds the sand back to its own design. One visit you’ll come and find the lagoon closed off to the ocean and see no rocks. At other times, like you see here, the rocks are exposed and the lagoon meets up with the ocean – flushing out the lagoon.

It’s a truly beautiful place and We definitely recommend visiting if you’re driving through. Situated about 2 hours north of Newcastle or 3.5 hours north of Sydney – it’s a great place to be.
