‘Beautiful Storm’ is beautifully launched…

On Sunday I had the real pleasure of attending the launch of ‘Beautiful Storm’, a coffee table book capturing the art in nature’s fury, by celebrated Mornington Peninsula-based photographer, Yanni Dellaportas.

‘Beautiful Storm’ is filled with an exclusive collection of breathtaking weather photography; the mesmerising images bringing the viewer directly into the eye of the storm.

Some time ago, Yanni put the call out to the Mornington Peninsula literary community to submit poems to compliment the stunning images.  I was thrilled to have one of my poems Storm Song selected to share the glossy pages with other evocative works from emerging and established poets and authors. The result is a beautifully-produced coffee table-style book, and a triumph of visual storytelling.

My heartiest congratulations to Yanni – the man behind the lens, and the passion behind the idea – ‘Beautiful Storm’ is a real gift to the world, and I’m very proud to be a part of it. It’s not every day you get to see your work appear in a coffee table book!

You can get your own copy of ‘Beautiful Storm’ from Farrell’s Bookshop and Antipodes Bookstore and Gallery. With Christmas just around the corner, they make beautiful gifts, and all profits are being donated to ongoing cancer research.

Happy writing, happy reading, and happy days. 🙂
