Healing Art Photography and Fine Art Gifts

I believe in the healing power of nature. If we take a moment to immerse ourselves in an image of nature we will feel rejuvenated, renewed and revived. Studies have shown that what we look at not just affects our mood, but also how we relate to others and our attention to detail. So if your feeling stressed, run down or just deserve a break, look at the images under "Healing Art" and immerse yourself in them.
My new line of photo gifts enables you to have Healing Art with you wherever you go and also to give as gifts to those who may not be into wall art.

The photogifts include watches, clocks, clothing, hip flasks,keyrings, usb sticks, phone covers, ipad covers,kindle covers, cushions, cards, stickers and so much more. Click on the tab that says Photo Gifts to see them all.

I send out an e-newsletter to anyone who wants one, including a free monthly image to use as a screensaver or desktop image to help in your healing and to lower your overall stress levels. I also let you know what I am up to and include any specials or coupons. To subscribe please send me an email at with "Subscribe" in the subject line.

"Fireworks, Gold Coast, Australia" by Julia Harwood | Redbubble

"Fireworks, Gold Coast, Australia" by Julia Harwood | Redbubble:
This image was taken at the end of the Gold Coast show. It was a great pyrotechnics show. The wxcotement of fireworks is something that we associate with joy, happiness,celebration and wonder. The colours exploding into the night sky as the lights cascade around us and we are totally captivated and we are able to just be.
This was taken using a tripod and as a long exposure. I find an exposure between 2 and 5 seconds is the best. I also use a cable release.

"Full Moon Rising, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia" by Julia Harwood | Redbubble

"Full Moon Rising, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia" by Julia Harwood | RedbubbleThis was the full moon as it rose on the Gold Coast last night. It is a blue moon as it was the second full moon of the month of August. The Gold Coast is full of high rise buildings all along the coast and most of the time this detracts from nature, but every now and then it works with nature to fuel our sense of the romantic and enable us to experience the beauty of nature even in amongst the city buildings of man.
The orange colour comes from the smog and/or clouds at the horizon level, the moon often appears larger and orange until it rises higher in the sky when it appears white and smaller. I love the fact that you can get a glimpse of the structure of the moon, it’s craters and lakes when the moon is full and low in the sky.
