  • post Behind the scenes with Nat Geo and 'The Last Honey Hunter' - 22 July
  • This month, National Geographic Magazine ran a long piece on the Kulung culture in Nepal, detailing the dangerous work of so-called 'honey hunters' as they set about harvesting large quantities of psychotropic honey. The process is harrowing, requiring hunters to scale large rock faces using ropes and little else, subjecting them to stings by the w...
  • post Photo of the week: Torment - 22 July
  • Skagsanden beach is by far my favorite in the Lofoten Islands. Is it surrounded by photogenic mountains, but that?s not the main attraction?it?s the composition and blending patterns of the sand in this Arctic beach which keeps me fascinated. Each time it?s different, and as a photographer who enjoys changing landscapes, I?m always curious to see h...
  • post Panasonic Leica DG 15mm F1.7 shooting experience - 22 July
  • The Panasonic Leica DG 15mm F1.7 is a sharp-looking lens that also happens to be very sharp optically as well.Whenever I see a lens with the name 'Leica' stamped on the front, I assume two things; first, it will be at least 'good' optically. Second, it will be a little pricey. The Panasonic Leica DG 15mm F1.7 reinforces both of those assumptions.Th...

i Know... I too have been delinquent.

I did visit the UK recently. My wife and I and friends from Newfoundland were over for a canal trip (again). We hired a narrowboat from Wyvern Shipping on the Grand Union at Leighton Buzzard and spent 4 weeks traveling at the breakneck speed of 4mph. Fantastic. I, of course , was the photographer. Went to Market Harbourough, Leicester (checked in on Richard 111), Nottingham and along to Birmingham ( had our boat cut free and a rope stolen at Wolverhampton and then to Warick to visit castle etc (again). Here we had our Canadian flag cut off overnight. A short off route to Rugby for a day and then back to Leighton Buzzard. Great trip , overall.
This all came about in 24 hours when the friends visited us in May. We talked about old trips and before we knew it we had booked flights and the boat. Really is neat and Wyvern are a great group to rent from.
 Lots of photos and all I have to do is sort through them now. Winter project. The last few winters we have gone south to kayak with the alligators in Georgia in the US but this year, with the $US so high it is a question. Not to mention Donald Trump.... but we won't.

Anyway... best wishes to my old friends.

xxVisiting Australia - Victoria

I will be travelling to Australia in mid-October for 4 weeks; primarily to represent my Dad, and the rest of the family, at my Aunt's (Dad's Sister) 100th Birthday celebrations.

I will be based in the Yarraville district of Melbourne and I am looking for photographic location ideas from those who know the area. I do have a few locations in mind but I would be pleased to hear from others with regards to any additional information from other members. I will be mainly looking for landscapes and wildlife opportunities.

Any help and assistance will be much appreciated.

xxMerry Christmas
