One of the things I have some across as a travelling photographer is that as soon as people find out your a photographer they would love it if you could just take some photos of this and that. My reaction to this has always been to cringe, my mind racing to the gear I don’t […]

Jumping Crocodiles! Well that was something we had to see! We were having a few days in Kakadu National Park which has been hit with one of the worst wet seasons for a while with plenty of flooding and plenty of roads in disrepair. It has to be said this is par for the course […]

Winding along the South Australia coastline just south of Adelaide is the the Fleurieu Way. The Fleurieu Peninsula has many highlights including the wineries and seaside towns. Emily and I took a couple of days to drive through this scenic countryside and visit some of the attractions along the way. We stopped overnight at Waitpinga […]
