white wallabies of Bruny
Wallabies are a kangaroo in miniature. On the southern edge of Tasmania sits Bruny Island, roughly 50 km long and pretty much untouched by man. It’s home to a rare albino Bennetts wallaby, which is a more densely furred subspecies of the red-necked wallaby found on mainland Australia. I’d heard of this rare animal but […]Read more
Well, Autumn is here and I thought there was no better time to test a wide angle lens I had got my mitts on. A nearby park and a little co-photographer joining me and I was all set. The park was alive with colour and for once, the sky wasn’t grey. Perfect. I’m going on […]Read more
Spotting urban wildlife
I used to be so envious of photographers who always seemed to be in the right place at the right time when it came to capturing rare sights of wildlife. Over the last few years, i’ve tried to emulate their “luck”. It turns out that luck is only part of it. In order to be […]Read more
It’s been a busy year so far photo wise, but the downside of that is that I haven’t been very attentive with my posts.

One morning I found myself in just the right place at the right time to record the US maxi yacht Rambler 88 and the Australian maxi yacht Ragamuffin 100 competing for second […]Read more
It’s loved and not so loved. A city reborn from the ashes of Nazi destruction, Rotterdam. The Dutch didn’t rebuild it like the Poles and Germans did with some of their monument cities. A visit here reveals a fresh side to the port ‘stad’. It shows remnants of the old and shining examples of the […]Read more
Yesterday, I spent a day at the Oostvaardersplassen. If you visit the Netherlands and are into wildlife, then I highly recommend this place. The area was made up from reclaimed land in 1968, the animals are pretty much left to themselves and the place thrives with life. If you do come for a visit, it’s […]Read more
