One of my photos was published!

For the past 15 years, 
Hema Maps has mapped over 250,000km 
of outback roads and tracks in Australia. 

Earlier this year, 
I was approached by HEMA asking  
if they could use of one of my images 
for their new '4WD & Camping Escapes' book. 
Of course, I said YES! 

 I was delighted that they gave me a 
copy of the book for free. 
The quality of the book blew me away 
and the content is just fabulous. 
It is packed full of information, 
gorgeous images, and maps. 
Very well organised too. 
It makes me want to go on a 4WD trip of my own.


My photo appears on Page 142 

It's a photo I took from one of our many visits to Burgess Park, 
our favourite spot for day-tripping.

More photos of Burgess Park from a recent trip. 




I must say I was quite thrilled to see my image
in such a lovely book.

    3. Yep, mowing can be a chore although I have my sons to do that job for me. My ideal would be to have a completely paved backyard with lots of containers full of plants, decorative and vegetable. No mowing but lots of greenery. :)
