Beautiful Bagan

Beautiful Bagan

                        I had such a great time creating these images in Bagan’s spectacular temples.   That exhilaration you experience when shooting something special whether it be an exotic destination, amazing people or the sheet spectacular natural beauty of our world is what drives me…

Humpback Whale Tail

Frolicking Whales in Wilhelmina Bay, Antarctica

                          We’d spent the morning cruising around the bay exploring some of the incredible icebergs.     The water was glass-like shimmering just as silk does and reflecting ice all around.  It was a world of white punctuated with glistening blue icebergs.   Not long…

Leopard Seal

Leopard Seal Lazing on the Ice

                                    I seriously didn’t expect these guys to be so massive.    Weighing up to 600 kgs, they laze around on the ice sleeping between meals before slithering into the clear icy waters to seek out prey.   I’d…

Dhaulagiri & Annapurna Range Views from Khopra Ridge

Trekking Annapurna Dhaulaguri

I recently spent 10 days trekking the magnificent Annapurna Dhaulaguri community trail in Nepal with Peregrine Adventures.   Everyday the scenery was just mind blowing!    So much diversity ranging from high altitude rainforest and jungle, through to the sparseness that occurs once you ascend above the treeline.   Even better though was that after 3 days…

Dhaulagiri Range Views from Khopra Ridge

Views of Dhaulagiri

                              Hiking in the Annapurna region of Nepal is just spectacular!   This image was taken up on Kopra Ridge where there is a simple lodge that sits on a finger of land surrounded by deep gorge.  Ahead is the magnificent…

Tidal River at Wilsons Promontory is pristine, wild and breathtakingly beautiful.

Simply Stunning – Wilsons Promontory, Australia

  Located on the southern-most tip of Australia, Wilsons Promontory is simply stunning. I was totally blown away by the variety of spectacular landscapes and sheer beauty of the area.  Gorgeous sunsets, crystal clear ocean, great bush walks and topped off at night with the most amazing starry skies shining incredibly brightly. If you ever…

Cutest kids eating icecreams on Flores. Guatemala

Charming Flores, Guatemala

  The tiny island of Flores in Peten Lake, Guatemala is the perfect stopping off point for a visit to the magnificent Mayan ruins of Tikal. Wandering the charming cobblestone streets lined with colourful colonial architecture is the ideal way to take in the sights and soak up all the ambiance of this tucked away…

Chicken Bus on the Streets of Antigua

On the Streets of Antigua, Guatemala

Antigua was absolutely beguiling – gorgeous architecture, cobblestone streets, colourful local buses and a good dose of indigenous culture, all set to a magnificent natural backdrop of volcanoes. It’s quite easy to see the latest of my obsessions – volcanoes and the local buses also affectionately referred to as chicken buses.

Mirror Street Art on the Malecon

the Malecon, Havana, Cuba

Havana’s Malecon runs some 8 kilometres from Old Havana right down to Verdado.  This waterfront esplanade and roadway is a magnet for locals looking to hang out and relax in the evenings.   During the day it’s more popular with fishermen and those looking to cool off in the deep blue waters of the Florida Straits….

Revolutionary Messages

Che & the Revolution

The lack of commercialism in Cuba was a real highlight for me, but it wasn’t something I immediately thought about whilst wandering the streets.    I didn’t realise how little there actually was until I arrived in Guatemala City, where it was as overt and obvious as being king hit and really quite overwhelming.  What…

People dance in the streets as a band plays inside a bar in Santa Clara, Cuba.

Mojitos and Night in Santa Clara, Cuba

A small bar in the beautiful old Teatro La Caridad building in Santa Clara is probably the best place to sit back and relax with a mojito in town.  Blessed with a position right on the central square it makes a great place to suck in all the atmosphere of this fabulous small town. The…
