AN HOUR FOR OUR EARTH

What is Earth Hour?
Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement uniting people to protect the planet, and is organized by WWF.

World Wide Fund for Nature

Engaging a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues, Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007.

Since then it has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide, and the one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement.

When does Earth Hour take place?
Earth Hour 2016 will be held on Saturday 19 March between 8.30 PM and 9.30 PM in your local time zone. The event is held worldwide towards the end of March annually, encouraging individuals, communities households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour as a symbol for their commitment to the planet.

How long has Earth Hour been going for?
The first Earth Hour event was on March 31 2007. WWF-Australia inspired Sydney-siders to show their support for climate change action. More than 2.2 million individuals and 2,000 businesses turned their lights out for one hour in the first Earth Hour event.

Earth Hour 2016 will mark the tenth year of the campaign!

Sunset Thinking

Do you ever watch the sunset
And just sit and think about things
Just you and the sky and darkness
Giving your thoughts some wings

Perhaps you’ve got some troubles
And don’t know what to do
Or you just plain need to get away
To spend a little time with you

Sunset beauty makes you feel as though
Your life has meaning after all
To see a sight so extraordinary
Makes you feel capable, strong and tall

It’s funny how flashes of color
Like a sunset or sunrise can inspire
It can calm your inner self a bit
It’s a scene you can never tire

The serenity gives you a chance
To put things in perspective
Life can be overwhelming at times
And a sunset can be reflective

So when the sky lights up next time
Let your gaze do some drinking
Soak up all the amazing sights
And do some sunset thinking!

~~Australian Skies~~

A 12 month timelapse journey

~~Published on Feb 23, 2015~~

My obsession with sunrises, sunsets, clouds and dark skies culminates in this 90 second timelapse video that covers 1 year of living and travelling in Australia.

For the 37 clips in this video I shot about 24000 photos along the east coast, some of the locations are: Sydney, Surfers Paradise, Brisbane, Byron bay, Townsville, Parkes, Mudgee and Rockhampton.

I can’t wait to travel and shoot more skies all over Australia and the rest of the world
