More fun in the snow!

It seems like I am up in the Blue Mountains and Oberon area every weekend of late! This area has had quite a few dumps of snow this winter season and when it snows I just can't seem to stay away. A huge cold front moved across Tasmania, Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales dropping snow over a massive area. I have had heaps of fun photographing this area in the snow with all the old farm sheds and snow huts. On this particular trip I made my way up via Robertson in the seach of snow in the Southern Highlands, which I did not see. The first snow I saw was a light dusting in the Goulburn and Crookwell areas, a bit more at Taralga and Shooter's Hill, Karanga Walls, Jenonlan Caves and Oberon had quite a large dump. I will be uploading more photos from this trip to very soon and you will see them pop up on Facebook and Instagram very soon also.

Super Sunset!

On the 28th July 2014 we had an incredible sunset over the Illawarra and much of New South Wales. The sky turned red and orange in spectacular style producing one of the best sunsets I have ever seen, the sky along the top of the escarpment looked like a detailed stitched pattern that was very unusual. I took my photos of the sunset from Minnamurra at the mouth of the Minnamurra river which is in the Kiama area in the south of the Illawarra. I took it from a number of locations along the rocky volcanic area of the Minnamurra coast. You can see one of my photos to the right here, but stay tuned for more as I upload them onto my website.

A couple weekends in the snow!

We have had quite a few cold fronts move through New South Wales in recent weeks bringing snow to much of the higher grounds. I haven't made the trek to the New South Wales Snowy Mountains just yet but I have been up to the Blue Mountains and Central West about 5 times this winter so far as I absolutely love the snow! I have captured snow right through from Blackheath in the Blue Mountains to Oberon, Black Springs, Shooter's Hill and some not far from Taralga near Goulburn. I've uploaded some on my website and you can view them by clicking HERE and HERE for the Blue Mountains area.

I will be making the trip soon to Perisher, Thredbo and the likes so stay tuned for that!

A funny story...

I often stay down at the lovely Art on Hart and Bellbird Cottage at Bermagui, and the owner Gretel is currently on a holiday in Sweden. Gretel sent me an email to say that the holiday home in Stockholm where she is staying has one of my framed photographs on the wall. What are the chances of that? I have never sold a photo to Swedan but perhaps one was sent as a gift and then for someone from the Southcoast of New South Wales that I know seeing it in the one place she was staying was quite amazing!

Supporting the Community and Port Kembla Hospital

Chilby Photography has decked out the Palliative Care unit of Port Kembla hospital at below cost price to make the most of funding supplied to the hospital by John and Heather Leake. Sadly John and Heather's son Brant passed away last year from skin cancer at 39. Brant was a keen surfer and frequented Warilla beach for most of his life. Brant was looked after here at Port Kembla hospital's palliative care unit and the family wanted Brant to be remembered with a series of local photographs that would also brighten up the ward for other families and staff. To the right is Brant's parents: John and Heather with the head nurse: Bronagh. They are with one of the 10 photos hung up in the ward. By offering these framed photographs of the areas at a cheaper price the photos were able to cover much of the hallway and rooms
