As well as the "Cards4Guys" series and the "Braidwood" cards, quite a few of the framed photographs will be exhibited and available for sale at very reasonable prices.

I participated in these Exhibitions in 2011, 2012 and 2013 entering three or four different framed images in each year.

The exhibitions had run for 40 years but the church found it difficult to have new people volunteer to organize the event.

For 2011 the images exhibited were:

  • In the Wake
  • High Country Sunrise
  • Monga Mist
  • Rock Crushing Machine

For 2012 the images exhibited were:

  • Mossy Trunks Errinundra Rainforest
  • Bare Island Study (1)
  • Rock Pools Bare Island

For 2013 the images exhibited were:

  • Scribbly Gums Oatley Park
  • Lime Kiln Bay Wetlands

The Oatley West Art and Craft Exhibition and Show is a major local event and some very talented artists are invited to submit work.

I submitted five pieces for the 2013 Exhibition and the following two photographs were sold.

Lime Kiln Wetlands pan04

The Lime Kiln Bay Wetlands is located within a kilometre of the exhibition. This image was the result of stitching four portrait images together. It was displayed as a print on stretched canvas.

Vert Sand Patterns 01 TL

The three images were taken at Bawley Point - the top and bottom images show the effect of receding waves on the beach whilst the central image shows the trails from shell fish through a layer of sand in a rock pool.
