Imagine organising one hundred and ten children to stand in a certain spot. Now picture each of those kids leading cattle and while you’re at it, throw in a few adults just for good measure - that is what we did to capture this year’s big group photo at the 2016 Pittsworth Limousin Youth Cattle Camp.  What an achievement it was!

I still manage to get a real kick out of doing things th...

The annual Royal Queensland Show, better known as the EKKA, may be over for another twelve months – however if you are like me, then you still enjoy looking back over peoples photos and seeing what and who was there.

Coulton’s Country covered a few different events and took a mixture of happy snaps this year from “around the ring”. It was definitely a different vibe this year and I fo...

Where you at the 2016 Downs Rugby Awards on Saturday night? What a fun night it was!

CCP was asked to be the official photographer for the evening and to be honest - I had a blast. 

Qld Reds players Junior Laloifi and Lukhan Tui were on hand to have their photos taken with 140 guests at Picnic Point in Toowoomba, Qld, on Saturday August 13th. Make sure you check out some of the an...

When someone first mentions FarmFest I automatically think back a few years when it was absolutely freezing. I had never been so cold in all my life! So much so that on the final day I felt like I was a human ice-cube! I remember staying with my parents and coming home to an open fire well ablaze and being so cold my bones ached. I usually put FarmFest into either of two categories –...

Agricultural shows across Queensland are using their own stage to help educate communities about the real issues of today’s society, and for the Springsure P&A Show Society, the topic for 2016 was organ donations.

Opening the Springsure Show on the weekend was Associate Professor David Gracey, a kidney transplant surgeon and a senior staff specialist in the Renal Unit at the Royal Pri...

I am all for planes and I take my hat off to anyone who flies them, but I must admit I go weak in the knees and my stomach starts to cartwheel once I am in one. The minute I take a seat my legs start to do a little jig and my palms get sweaty. With bigger planes I am not as bad, however I wouldn't say I am great with those either.

At Christmas time my darling husband bought me a begin...

What a treat it was to judge the adult and juvenile photography competition at the Wandoan Show this year. There were over 450 images exhibited, doubling in numbers since last year, and setting a new record for the stewards.

With seven categories in the juvenile section and eighteen categories in the adult group, it kept me busy and was a great challenge. Everyone who competed in the...
