I think some people don’t understand the term ‘customer service’ very well. i mean, sometimes i hate people too (*jokes*), but it’s fleeting, and i can get over it for the sake of happy customers. i had spent most of this particular day researching and booking accommodation for my 7-night whirlwind exploratory trip to tasmania and i was stoked that so many people i spoke on the phone to were friendly, professional, and very welcoming, answering questions and being accommodating and helpful. i’ll tell you right now that the price of things plays second to customer service, to me anyway. i like to support small business, i like to support local business, and i love the personal touch. i might do research using those giant conglomerate global booking sites, but i usually call the places direct, almost to test them to see if i like the way they treat people. just remember, being kind is free, and the world needs more of that. xx ...ps i am a local small business, teaching photography, planning workshops, shooting portrait sessions, selling my landscape images, and selling great products from nisi and sirui that i use every single day. thanks for your support! .
ps mornings at my local beach are always full of new compositions, and skies are like a fingerprint, never the same! what a beautiful world we live in! .
*authorised re-seller for nisi, sirui and sunwayfoto products.* private photography workshops. guided photography tours in the works!

One of the best places we saw in south australia! such an unreal contrast of colours.
shortly after we started the nullarbor links (the worlds longest golf course) we arrived in the windmill town of penong. from there we drove south towards cactus beach, a pretty popular surf spot. for a good 10 minutes you will see nothing but windmills and p*t holes, but eventually you reach a crossing. the road splits through a what’s known as lake macdonnell - the site of an old salt mine and the largest gypsum deposit in the southern hemisphere.
Back to one of my favorites due to ease of access and reward at the end. couldn't get much of a great photo due to it being flowing quite well and the spray ruining any long exposure attempts, despite the lack of rain up in the highlands latley.
always interesting going back to these places i grew up around too and seeing the changes created by other people, some for better and some for worse but atleast this spot in particular still hasn't had the endless graffiti and rubbish like others and hope it stays the same for a long time to come.
