Check out this video edit of 8 days camping in the South Island of NZ.
Cameras used: Canon 5dmk3, a GoPro handheld and strapped to a drone.
I have so many photos of Adélie Penguins it’s becoming a problem. I don’t have enough time to go through the Gigabites of photo files of these guys. They are comical on land, majestic in the water and sometimes fly through the air.
And yet, i can’t get enough of them.
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.
Again we went to Adelaide for BMX, and again it was rad. Here is the edit i filmed from Nathan’s house this year.
Flickr have chosen another of my images from my time in Antarctica for their blog. This time it’s of the ‘Wilkes Hilton’ near Casey Station. A field hut used as a weekend getaway from station.

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.
