Why I'm Giving Up Life On The Road
1 year, 3 months ago 67

Why I’m Giving Up Life On The Road I should mention that I’m not quitting travelling entirely. But I am leaving behind this long-term travelling lifestyle and moving back to the UK. I will be putting behind me the long journeys lasting months, and replacing them with 2 or 3-week trips. I felt strangely lost, like I […]

Epic Sunrise Glenorchy __________________________________ Hey guys! I have a question, if you’ve got a minute. If you’re a regular visitor to the blog, do you find the post-processing description and the before/after comparisons useful? I’m just wondering if it is something I should continue, or if it’s not really helping much. Thanks! __________________________________ Last week […]

Perfect Timing - Milky Way at Nugget Point
1 year, 6 months ago 11

The Clouds Did Part I planned this image about 7 months ago. Using my Photopills app, I worked out the new moon date and what time the galactic centre would be over the lighthouse like this. The Milky Way would be in position at around 11pm. Unfortunately, the sky was black with clouds when we […]

Epic Sunset Over Milford Sound
1 year, 6 months ago 19

A Surprise Sunset at Milford It had been raining all day. I was waiting for sunset but didn’t have high expectations. Milford Sound is famously rainy and there hadn’t been even the slightest glimpse of a sky since we’d arrived earlier in the day – just thick clouds and rain. But of course, as photographers, […]

Milky Way over Lake Rotoiti

Running Around NZ One of the added bonuses of being in New Zealand is the walking trails. My wife and I aren’t walkers typically, but we are runners. My wife runs a comfortable 6 minute mile (and under) over 10km, whereas I kind of plod along slowly, just enjoying myself. Back in Korea there was […]

Sunset at Motukiekie Beach

Taking a Dangerous Risk This wonderful location is one of the main reasons I came to New Zealand. For years I’ve wanted to capture a dynamic seascape with those lovely starfish (I’m not sure if these are starfish, so apologies if I’m wrong), and water cutting through the narrow gullies. It took 7 days for […]

Sunrise in Guilin - Floating On Fog
2 years, 2 months ago 6

Sunrise on fog in Guilin An hour after touching down in Guilin airport, we were hiking up our first location, Cuiping. Although the hike wasn’t the most difficult, or longest, the heat and humidity seemed to add a few kilos to my bag. The muddy, narrow path eventually led us to stunning views across valley, […]

A Short Love Affair With a MacBook Pro I collected a refund for the MacBook I bought last week. I’m back using my trusty, yet noticeably slower, PC. After experiencing fairly constant crashes, they offered to send it off to the service centre in Seoul. I’ve been in Korea for 3 years now, in total. […]

Swooping Rays - Birds At The Batu Caves
2 years, 7 months ago 13

Patience While Shooting One thing I pride myself on in photography is patience. I believe that patience and planning are two immensely important ingredients to consistently creating good quality images. In the past I would jump around a location firing off hundreds of shots as the light changed, hoping to be lucky enough to come […]
