Juvenile Powerful Owl in Warrandyte . I took up photography at age 9 focusing predominantly on birds, but now at age 13, I focus on birds in flight. Warrandyte is full of amazing birds but this was the first time I had seen a Powerful Owl. In order to capture this image, I sat on my dads shoulders so I could frame the shot clear of the branches. I use a Nikon P1000.

Nine. This image is of my 9 year old sister, this photo represents the young mind and how creative and imaginative it is and how you can never seem to know what is happening inside that mind. And that the dark shadow behind her is the unknown and the light she is looking at is the creativity and wonders of the world from the perspective of a small child with a wonderous mind.
Look into my eyes. This is a tiny Servaea sp. Jumping Spider. The light ring created a cute and funny hypnotising look from the spider.
True Blue. This is my dad. Hes a true blue aussie trickster. He works hard and always helps people when he can and loves to make us laugh. He is courageous and my hero. I will always look up to him.
Lonely Bike and the Sanitiser . This photo was taken by our 3.5 year old daughter, Eloise. Editing of the photo chosen by her with the help of dad moving the sliders. In her words: I loved this bicycle at my favourite cafe. It was too big for me to ride so I just took a picture of it instead and then I had my babycino.

I love frogs and I was really excited to wake up early in the morning to find it on one of our trees. It was good to see that life finds a way to keep on after the fires.
Boredom. As kids we get driven around whether we like it or not. This trip was one of those. Not much going on. For something to do, my sister and I had a photography competition and I tried something new with the reflection from the mirror. I can't exactly remember the winner, but it made the trip fun.
Tissue Paper Bloom. This bloom could be made of delicate tissue, carefully folded to make the most beautiful flower.

During lockdown our school arranged a zoom call with local Illustrator Mark McBride who told us how the Aqueduct Trail inspired his illustrations for a book called 'The Glimme'. As we walked through the trees I could almost see the dragons hiding in the trees. Can you see them too?
After Burn. Capturing a couple taking sometime out of their country lifestyle as they under the year that was 2019. In New South Wale raging bushfires had taken away much of the rural land, and many were left stranded with their own thoughts on the issue.
