A lot of my photographs are taken in the sub-tropical rain forests of Northern New South Wales and South Eastern Queensland. In these forests the only light available for photography is that which penetrates the canopy high above. Light reaches the floor of the forest as cones focused by the leaves and branches of the canopy. This cone of light fleetingly illuminates small areas at floor level. This is where I look for my pictures. I have a brief time to take a picture as the sun moves inexorably across the sky and the cone of light moves with it. The picture can never be repeated as it is impossible to recreate that lighting which existed for such a short space of time. Sometimes the distinction between my Wabi Sabi and the Spotlights in the Forest becomes blurred as a subject may represent both  series so please do not be too judgmental if you think that one is in the wrong gallery.
