I woke up fairly early (6:30 am) and went down to the Olgas viewing area to catch the sunrise. There were quite a few photographers there already, with their tripods setup in prime position (you have to get up pretty early to get the special corner edge of the platform :P), so I had to race around them with my camera capturing the different angles as the light changed over the Olgas and Uluru. In this photograph you can see the small silhouette of Uluru on the horizon (right), and the rising sun as the light spreads out across the frosty desert.
This long exposure is of a Road Train travelling along the Stuart Highway not far out from Alice Springs. I was standing just off to the side of the road with my camera and tripod when this massive (only) 2 trailer Road Train came howling past. The red and orange LED lights made excellent light streams, but unfortunately my camera’s sensor was too hot to expose long enough to capture the stars (so clear in the Outback) :P !
I was in France at the end of last year and captured some really nice scenery – PhotoStream/France. This is Le Château de Chambord a stunning place, the Chateau is a maze of hallways and rooms filled with unique artefacts from past residents and the architecture of the building is so detailed any where you look :P.
I was at the dawn ANZAC service in Melbourne last year and captured a nice moment by the Eternal Flame:
Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, and is commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honour members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. It now more broadly commemorates all those who died and served in military operations for their countries. Anzac Day is also observed in the Cook Islands, Niue, Samoa and Tonga.

Kuala Lumpur’s China Town is a hub for cheap electronics, DVDs and watches – also an interesting part of KL, the older parts of KL with the historic markets and The Cricket Club. I used a slow shutter speed to blur the moving cars – showing Kuala Lumpur’s bustling way of life.
