LEExposure 06 Gallery Feature

Hi all, it's been a very long time between posts. I actually have some news to share. Three of my images were selected to feature in the gallery section of the LEExposure 06 E-Mag. I thank the staff at Lee Filters for asking me to submit photos to show.

My photos and commentary appear on pages 46-49. You can download or view on the web at this website

Here is sample of the gallery below. For higher res or to download please go to their website.

Montague Island

This is Montague Island as the title suggests and it's situated off the township of Narooma on the East coast of New South Wales, Australia.

When I first arrived in Narooma I noticed the island straight away and started composing in my mind what it would look like as a long exposure. 
I didn't take the shot and was not sure why. When we had some rain during the weekend I wondered if I would get another chance to shoot it with the sun in the west lighting it up.
It wasn't until the Sunday afternoon when the showers had cleared and we weren't out seascaping.
So I quickly grab the opportunity to capture an exposure for six minutes while hiding behind a tree because of cross winds at the time.

A Pioneer View

This is one of those images that really mean more to me than appealing to others. What i mean by that is this area of the Central Coast used to be traveled by the early pioneers of the area. My family is from the Wyong area so it's home to me. You can't really see it, but the point of land in the distance is an old jetty made of rocks called Tuggerah Wharf.
I couldn't get around the fence to get over to the jetty so this is where i had to take my one and only image.
