The Grand Canyon is 446 km long, up to 29 km wide and in some places 1.8 km deep. It is so wide that you don’t perceive it as a one single canyon – with an opposite side visible somewhere far away on horizon, it looks more like a huge valley cut by numerous canyons.

March is one of the best months to go out and shoot seascapes in Sydney. You can get lucky to have some great skies and you don’t need to get up very early to catch 7am sunrise.

Despite being 15 metres below the sea level, it was hot, dry and windy. I was trying to get to some nice-looking dunes a few hundreds metres from the road and it wasn’t easy.
That’s how I remember Mesquite Sand Dunes in Death Valley, which we visited about 9 months ago during our American Southwest trip. After a long drive from Yosemite, Death Valley welcomed us with dry +40C (nothing special for us, fans of Australian Outback). That day we had just enough time for a brief visit to Badwaters and Zabriskie Point, I was also hoping to get to these dunes before sunset. Unfortunately, I had underestimated Death Valley distances and was late…

This image of Tidal River in Wilsons Promontory (Victoria, Australia) was taken just a few hours before 2010. I had my camera set to 30 seconds exposure, but I felt that it was the longest exposure time in my life – I was surrounded by millions of mozzies, they were practically everywhere and I was absolutely unprepared. After this shot I ran from that river back to our camp. Just 40 minutes later a strong storm with heavy rain and strong wind came from the west and we spent the night celebrating the New Year Eve inside the tent.

Since I started my monthly free desktop calendar program in September, I noticed that dark or blue wallpapers attract much more attention. I must admit that I prefer them as well – they distract less and it is much easer to find icons on desktop.
The main calendar for January 2010 features beautiful rocks at Mimosa Rocks National Park, located about 400km south of Sydney. Rocks were named after Paddle Steamer (P.S.) Mimosa which ran into them in 1863. Two lives were lost. More images from this location you can find in this photoset: Mimosa Rock National Park.
