    Don't Forget The Water

    In one of my earlier trips in the Northern Territory (Australia) I carefully loaded myself up with what I thought was a light kit. A small back-pack, waist pack, camera gear, water...and hiked in. Part of the way in I realised I was losing water faster than I could drink it- the...

    Love Photography

    I actually went to school for photography back when we used cameras with film and f-stops!  I think Nature photography is my favorite form of art.  There is so much beauty to capture in the world, from landscapes to animals, to close-ups of flowers and bugs.  I...

    This fox is caught in the act!

    XD So I have looked outside my widow, ages ago, and I notice that the fox had killed a squirrel! I mean you can't really see if it's a squirrel or not because in this shot the fox has already eaten the head. It's also slightly fuzzy, the image, but in a way it has made it look...

    Doh!

    I was working on my laptop when , out of the corner of my eye, I see a beautiful juvenile red-shouldered hawk a few feet from the window on the railing. I get up very slowly and its head swiveled immediately. It was watching me like--well, a hawk!Sneak to the other room where my...

    I love going on adventurous wildlife safari.

    ..when i am in their territory it feels so peaceful with the beautiful birds happily chirping away :) though clicking wildlife is quite a challenge but once you get a good shot of them it feels so satisfying...every shot of a bird or any animal feels like an achievement and is...

    I went for a walk with my parents

    Avoid The Crowds- Bird Photography

    The kaka is an endangered NZ bush parrot.  There's a lovely population around Puhaka near Martinborough.  While the birds are habituated to people, lots of people also disrupt the birds.  They like to give as good as they get- the sight of a kaka zooming along at just above...

    I have been doing wildlife photography

    for just under a year and a half now and I have to say, it is the most relaxing thing to do. I love to just go out and get lost in the wind and the nature and I find all wildlife fascinating. I rarely take decent photos due to the fact that most of the things I like photograph...
