Cappadocia Turkey from a hot air balloon
Armed with two cameras, we set off before 5am to explore Cappadocia by hot air balloon. We met our hot air balloon in a field on the outskirts of Göreme. I had never flown(?) in a hot air balloon before. The whole experience was just amazing. The take off and landing were barely noticeable and […]

Animal tracks Parc national du Mercantour
Weather in the mountains is hard to predict. Not that I did any research, I had my trip planned and I would photograph the landscape with what ever weather I was presented with. For this trip I arrived in the midst of one of the seasons last snow falls. The sky was a white out, […]

Lavender of Provence, France
Provence is world famous known for its quaint old villages and sprawling lavender fields. The epicenter of lavender seems to be Valensole and the surrounding countryside found in the North of Provence. A short drive at the right time of the year and you will come to agree with this. Lavender is everywhere. Its sweet scent fills the […]

Sunflowers, Loire Valley, France
The Loire Valley in France was more than just some fancy Chateau’s (photos to come), it was beautiful countryside too. The drive there from Paris reminded me of the UK actually. Everything was so green…and it was raining. I didn’t realise how much agriculture is there, and so close to Paris. Fields of sunflowers, wheat, […]

Vallon de Chastillon Isola
With a record amount of snow falling on the Southern Alps and being only a 2 hour drive away it would be rude not to go for a spot of skiing. It would also be rude not to take all my camera gear on the off chance there were some shots to be taken. I […]

La Madone de Fenestre Mercantour France
After a restless night in Refuge de la Madone de Fenestre I was last to get out of bed and out the door, it was still half an hour before sunrise. I’ll say it again, got to love these mountain people….who needs sleep. It was the end of the season so the snow had formed […]

Grand Cayre de la Madone
A weekend photographing the snow, I was excited to say the least. The only problem was it was May, spring had sprung, and with the warm temperatures we had been experience in Nice there was a chance I may not see any snow at all. Passing through Saint-Martin-Vésubie I drove down one of the two nearby roads that lead to the […]

Walls of Jerusalem National Park Tasmania
This was the introduction to winter camping that I didn’t expect. Well some aspects I did expect, and prepare for. I knew it would be cold, how cold was a surprise! I was down in Tasmania for the AIPP annual Event which this year was being hosted in Hobart. After several days of photography, dinners […]

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park
A must for all photographers and a location I had been desperate to get to since arriving on Australian shores back in 2003, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park aka Ayers Rock and The Ulgas. First stop after our flight direct to Ayers Rock Airport was Kings Canyon a few hour drive away. Interestingly even though it’s a […]
