Here are a few of the latest posts:

Iceburgs in Antarctica.

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.

Four images from Antarctica.

I have taken many photos since being here at Casey Station this summer season, but not uploaded that often. Hoping to change that now i have a collection building up.

Here are a couple of selfies and a couple of a hike around the snow and ice.

Antarctica, again.

It’s happening again. I’ve made the trip down to Casey Station for another summer in Antarctica.

We flew down a few days ago on a government Airbus A319. From Hobart to Wilkins Aerodrome, 70 kms from Casey. Inside, it’s not your usual commercial airplane. Some seats are missing for more moving around room, the cockpit is open and you can go hang out with the pilots and 40 minutes from landing on the ice we put on our full survival gear ready to step out into -15c degree temperatures.

I made a few photos of inside the plane on our trip down. Antarctic_flight_NOV2014_webres5 Antarctic_flight_NOV2014_webres4 Antarctic_flight_NOV2014_webres3 Antarctic_flight_NOV2014_webres2 Antarctic_flight_NOV2014_webres1An

Chief Street Halloween Jam 2014

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…
