Welcome to Big Ben's Victoria
I am a landscape photographer and this site is the monster that
has taken over a good portion of my life. It all started out by just
being a collection of my photographs with a few notes next to each
image. The thought of making it into a guide to Victoria had crossed
my mind but it wasn't until I started receiving feedback from
tourists and homesick Victorians that I actually headed in this
This is not intended to be a comprehensive tourist guide to
Victoria as I don't have the resources to cover everything (and I
haven't been paid a comprehensive sum of money to visit them all).
That is the job of Tourism Victoria, and hopefully one day their web
site will achieve that. This is more of a personal travel diary of
the places I have been to in search of new subjects for my landscape
photography. The places that I highlight are not necessarily major
tourist attractions but that is only because there are no facilities
near them (and hence no one to make money from promoting them).
This guide also includes maps, panoramic movies, an animation or
two, personal opinions and the odd ranting and raving. I have had to
replace the Big Ben Browser with my new online Photo Gallery so that
I can hopefully entice people to buy my images and help pay for the
server traffic charges this site generates. I may soon be looking
for a sponsor(s) (but I intend to keep this a banner free site).
