"Skyfire Sermon" - An epic sunrise at Pulpit Rock in Victoria, Australia. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We drove here at 4am to shoot the stars, only to find that after staying up all night, it was completely clouded over! But those clouds did look like they might make for a decent sunrise... rather than go home for sleep, we nodded off in that car for two hours and hiked back in.
We watched with gitty anticipation as the colors picked up, and then it EXPLODED. The sky went ablaze in color and Pulpit Roxk stood proud, bathing in the morning glow.
If you like sleep, photography may not be the right hobby for you :)
Cape tribulation, where the rain forest meet the reef. I was told this is the only place in the world where two world heritage sites meet.
On a sidenote, we got bogged here and got snatched out but a kind stranger
🤵🏻/// we are the creative guest relations - drivers team. every conference brings new guys to the crew, and every conference brings memories that will last a lifetime. this is my 5th and after 5 i still have mostly no idea what i’m doing, however, the team only continues to rise in excellence and the pursuit of something bigger than ourselves. we are one of the many who serve, but i reckon this team if one of the best there is.
p.s. scroll right for a laugh.

Brennan Dual's proposal includes centralised courtyards to beckon natural light into the centre of each dwelling and to further refocus on nature; the plantings in the courtyard evoke the sense of transience, heightening the relationships between indoor and outdoor, darkness and light, humans and nature.

3 shots of Weeping Rock - one from the top, one from the side and the third from below the falls. I'd seen a lot of shots of this spot but this was my first visit. .
😖😭😥💔 #endgreyhoundracing#shutitdown#animal cruelty #australia #sydney#ig_australia#bangreyhoundracing Thousands of greyhounds are born in Australia each year that are surplus to Industry requirements. Industry statistics show that up to around 40% of greyhounds born (7,200 greyhounds every year) will never receive a registered racing ‘name’ and hence never race. In addition, some ‘named’ greyhounds will never go on to race. This is a very high initial failure rate (also known as initial ‘wastage’). Further ongoing ‘wastage’ continues over time as active racing greyhounds retire from racing or are discarded due to injury or sub-optimal performance, among other reasons. Wastage refers to animals bred for a specific purpose that are discarded by the industry or owner of the animal and often subsequently killed.
This oversupply problem is exacerbated by financial incentives for breeding, appearance fees and the lure of prize money.
The racing career for a greyhound is relatively very short. Dogs who begin a racing career usually start racing at about one-and-a-half years of age and are generally retired by two to five years of age, or earlier if they develop injuries or do not perform well.
Many of these unwanted greyhounds will be euthanased despite being otherwise healthy and rehomable. Statistics on the fate of unwanted greyhounds are not published by industry, but based on the available information it is clear that the euthanasia rate is unacceptably high. According to recent information, between 13,000 and 17,000 healthy greyhounds are euthanised per year.
Ever wondered what happened to your towel or t-shirt you accidentally left behind at the hostel? Or what happens to the old bed linen? Well, we donate it to a local wildlife rescue! On a regular basis we donate bags of towels/linen to be recycled into makeshift kangaroo pouches where little orphaned Joey's like Lucy here, can have a safe home to sleep in until she is big enough to be released back into the wild. Lucy became an orphan after her mumma was struck and killed by a car. Wildlife rescue volunteers searched her dead mothers pouch to find her still alive. She is now safe and well cared for. You can see the 'pouches' she and her orphaned friends now call home in the background of the pictures. So perhaps that t-shirt you lost at our hostel is now home to a baby kangaroo 🤗
