Adélie Penguins in Antarctica.

I have so many photos of AdĂ©lie 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.

Here are some photos of the Adélie Penguins, one photo of a Skua right after taking a Penguin egg and one of the egg after the meal.rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin8_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin7_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin6_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin5_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin4_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin3_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin2_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin1_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin_jan15_webres

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

Larundel Psychiatric Hospital

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.

St Kilda Session with Brad Mas.

Brad Mas had his bike, i had my camera. This is the result of a little photo session down at St Kilda Skatepark on a sunny afternoon. BMX bikes and Melbourne mix well.bradm_stkilda_mar14_faceshot_webres bradm_stkilda_mar14_blackandwhite_qtrturndown2_webres bradm_stkilda_mar14_qtrturndown_webres bradm_stkilda_mar14_qtrtable_webres bradm_stkilda_mar14_qtrflair_webres bradm_stkilda_mar14_270bar_webres
