    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...

    Contest

    I once entered a photography contest at our local wildlife organization. The photos of course had to be of nature and/or wildlife. I had decided that I would take a picture of something that no one else had. Of course most pictures were of everyday ordinary flowers or wildlife...

    Great Day

    Today was a red letter day for me. I went out with the intention of finding and photographing Dippers on a mountain stream in Snowdonia, North Wales. Although I have seen dippers on many occasions they have always been too wary for me to get close enough to photograph them...

    Amongst The Waterfalls Of The Waitakeres

    In the chill of the NZ winter, a good day brings a clearness to the air that makes waterfall photography enrapturing. It's just a matter of dressing up warm, packing the right camera gear, and being prepared to hike the distances. "Three Steps"

    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...

    Love Photography

    Solid Tripods Are Worth It

    The old adage that there's generally no such thing as a light, stable tripod often still rings true. Excepting for carbon-fibre, light tripods often don't have the ability to capture long exposures without some movement. The downside is that carrying heavy, solid tripods over...

    But Who Doesn't

    There is something so calming about nature when captured at the right moment. It can also be so raw.

    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...
