rainbow windmill

Had an awesome time out in the elements yesterday afternoon. Swollen grey skies, the occasional spot of golden sun, and not too windy or too cool. All the ingredients I was looking for to catch this image. Catching a rainbow is a huge bonus. And in the right spot too lol.  It was there and gone within 30 seconds, and I changed lenses too.

I had a PO with this one. I knew it was in the bag as soon as I took the shot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love that feelin'. And that's why I love getting out there and getting in it!!

Meaning of PO according to the Pete Dobre Dictionary...... Photographic Orgasm!!!! And he's spot on too.

And just to top off yesterday and make a great day even better.....


I've had an enquiry on using some of my images for an upcoming glossy tourist magazine.

I can tell you, I'm mighty flattered by that. And a bit humbled too.

This leaves me in a bit of a quandary tho. I am a keen amateur as far as taking images. I've been toying with developing what I do and my name into a business. I'm very unsure if I want to take this step and make it into an enterprise. I've been tossing around the idea of shooting images for Stock, and for that I need to be a business. I want to keep it simple and fun. Not be bogged in paperwork, tax invoices and BAS statements.

I feel as if I'm at a cross roads and I feel torn.......

WOW! What a stunning photograph!!

Congratulations (?) on the magazine thingo... I'm sure your heart will tell you what to do... just trust your instincts. And of course, take some time to weigh up the pros and cons.

Gorgeous photo Tiff.
and I say go for it too.
for such a super organised person as you, the paperwork will be a breeze.
You have come such a long way from Teagan and Ryans "practice shoot" to where you are now.
Go on...its just another step in the journey....accept the challenge and run with it.

(you'll be doing weddings next!! hehe)

You obviously love what you do, so why not? Although to talk to people in the know, that's also what you need to do. You just don't want something that you love turning into something you don't!! xx
