As part of my recent Farm Jam trip in the South Island of New Zealand i spent a couple of days in Queenstown and took these photos of guys on bikes.
Just a quick little request for those who have an Instagram account, Follow me!
Here are a few of the latest posts:
📷🐘 Elephant Seals. Browning Peninsula, Antarctica. I found these guys again this year down at their landing spot on the coast. They hang on the rocks all day and sleep, looking so relaxed. They only move to reshuffle and occasionally yawn like in this image. Such gentle giants on land. Probably killers in the water. #aad #antarctica #antarctic #adventure #earth #explore #expedition #exploration #travel #photography #photo #life #nature #wildlifephotography #world #wildlife #seal #elephantseal #globalwarming #climatechange #canon @canonaustralia @bestintravel @lonelyplanet @natgeotravel @natgeo #canonaustralia
Monsters of the Deep.
During my time down at Casey Station in Antarctica this season, i got to go out on a ‘burg cruise’ in the IRB’s. A trip on the boats to drive around some of the giants in the southern ocean. These iceburgs are huge from a distance and massive up close. They are big on top of the water and monsters under the surface. Some are grounded and dont move for years. Others float back and forth daily. Overall it was such a amazing experience i will never forget.
Here are some photos i got from my GoPro camera half underwater trying to show the size of them. The last is from the Canon showing what it looks like on top. Remember 10% on top 90% underneath.
Adelaide had a reason to be afraid yet again this Halloween. This years pre City Dirt Jam was my first time going, and it was pretty much all the hype i’d heard and more. Much more. There was a few crazy things done on the bikes and everyone got a good ride in before the rain came after dark. That didn’t stop the party as everyone there had come in a Halloween spirit.
I’ll let the photographs do the talking…
I have a few black and white photos taken at Casey Station, Antarctica last summer. All taken down near the wharf. All with my Leica M6, Voigtlander 35mm lens and Kodak Tri-X film. Straight off the scanner.
When you’re near the water taking photos or doing anything really, the penguins come from all over to visit you, see what your up too, hang for a while, then leave. This one came from the ocean and left, seen here on his way back for a swim. Some sea ice accumulated near the rocks. The ice/snow on the foreshore is undercut by the water movement. A small iceburg floating around the bay.
I found another abandoned mental hospital to photograph. Australia sure does have a few still around. I’m not sure how much longer this one will be here, as it looks like the developers are coming in to demolish soon. I heard it has been here for 15+ years in the abandoned state it is in today. It is huge. Many buildings. Lots of rooms. A massive area all up. I was in a rush with the fading sunlight, so i’ll have to get back there soon.
The final photo dump from Australia’s Northwest.
It’s been a journey, with a start, and soon an end. With loads of variety, we’ve enjoyed our time there. Here’s to a new start and a great life, continued onwards and upwards. Cheers.
This is the second to last part of a series of images from Northwest Australia.
