An unseasonal snow storm swept through in early September blanketing the surrounding peaks and valleys of Mt Rainier NP during my recent visit to Washington. We started early leaving Bellevue our base for the week in the hope of catching first light and arrived to some of the most incredible conditions although unexpected 2 and a half months before winter. Who can spot @helloemilie? Look forward to sharing more from my trip to the PNW @visitbellevue #VisitBellevue
Sunrise along the Dusty dirt roads of Torres Del Paine. Apologies for the lack of new work being posted as it’s been a huge last few months. Lots of new stuff coming soon from America, Japan, New Zealand & Namibia.
Inside the Icelandic labyrinth...
Glacial remains providing evidence of a recent calving event and the signs of a constant retreat of New Zealand’s largest glacier. Apologies for the lack of posting over the past month, normal service will commence shortly with so many new photos/videos to share.
Dolerite pillars of the Tasmania highlands, remnants of a violent volcanic past rise up vertically and defy the elemental forces of rain, wind and snow that weather this rugged and wild part of the world. Captured post mid winter blast whirling over Tasmania’s tallest peaks with @paraviontas & @tasmania #discovertasmania
A few scenes from the flight in and from my time on Satellite Island off the coast of Tasmania, quite possibly one of the best places I’ve ever stayed. The 30min flight in from the Hobart crossed dense forests, open ocean and rugged coastlines arriving to our private island for 2 of the most memorable nights disconnected from the rest of the world. Who would you want to stay here with? @tasmania @satelliteisland @paraviontastas #discovertasmania
Imagine being in a place 5 days walk from the nearest town, the only way in is a small bush runaway in the middle of nowhere or a 2 day boat trip through the roaring forties. This is the South West of Tasmania. Swipe right for the full scene looking over Bathurst Harbour out towards Port Davey. @tasmania #DiscoverTasmania
Raw, rugged and immensely remote, the southwest of Tasmania is a true wilderness experience far detached from civilisation. As the rain began to fall the sun poked through creating rainbows in all directions as we hiked high along a ridge above Bathurst harbour, an afternoon etched deeply in the memory bank. As places go Tasmania will always be top of my list and I look forward to showing you more of what I got up to on my recent adventure on the island state. @tasmania #discovertasmania
Soaring in & out of the clouds over glacial valleys somewhere above Fiordland.
The meeting of two giants at sundown, Etosha National Park.. Happy world elephant day
In coming weather on the Skelton Coast, where the sand mountains of the Namibia meet the Atlantic.
The future kings of the jungle... These curious little guys were captured during my recent stay at @erindinamibia where I had the chance to spend a week learning about the conservation projects happening here and getting to know the wildlife that call this protected reserve home. Each day held many memorable experiences starting with a pre dawn drive heading out into the bush with over 70,000 hectares pure wilderness to see what we could find. Look forward to showing you more from my stay here at @erindinamibia
Desert textures at sundown as seen from one of the tallest dunes in the world aka Big Daddy..
A breeding herd of elephants kicking up an atmosphere of dust and spilling light as they depart west off into the sunset. Of all the moments of my recent Namibia workshop this one holds some special significance to me for having the opportunity to bare witness the social interactions between the elephants, it’s only strengthen my love more for these precious animals.. @safari.frank
Skeletons of the desert, Deadvlei..
En route back from another stint in Namibia after a memorable 3 weeks hosting my annual workshop. One of the many highlights from the trip was taking the crew on a doors off sunrise heli flight over the largest dunes on the planet, it’s only from above that one can appreciate the sheer vastness of the Namib Desert.
Located over 70km off the mainland coast of Australia Heron Island is a coral cay located at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef. During my time on the island I’ve had the opportunity to snorkel and dive with turtles, sharks, rays and countless species of fish surrounded by some of the healthiest reef I’ve ever seen. Although the state of the reef on the southern end is healthy as a whole the Great Barrier Reef a place of unparalleled ecological importance is under serious threat due to direct impacts from humans. Now more then ever the protection of our marine environments is imperative. Together let’s make a positive change for our oceans and our reef so future generations can enjoy these aquatic wonderlands. @queensland #thisisqueensland
