“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” – Anonymous

A photo I took on the Costa Rica's Caribbean coastline.

A 30 second long exposure of the waves crashing on the rocks of Playa Maderas in southern Nicaragua. A picturesque beach with interesting cliff formations and waves all day long for those surfers out there…

For those wondering, that 'misty' effect of the water is from a long shutter speed as the waves crashed over the rocks in the foreground. The shot was taken around about 25 minutes after the sun dipped below the horizon.

Port Stephens, NSW, from above

Was over holidaying in northern New South Wales to see my friends photography friends. They were lovely enough to show me around the area, in which I was very impressed. Such a fantastic part of the Aussie coastline!

A fresh water lagoon, surrounded by dense green jungle and sprinkled on both sides with a series of waterfalls surrounding the idyllic turquoise water. If I could describe this place in one word, I’d use the word “enchanting”. Floating on your back, with small ripples of water lapping up against your side from the waterfall falling from the jungle above, you would forgive yourself for thinking you’ve transcended into one of those movies you watch in envy back home on the couch.

Hope you're all having a wonderful day! :-)

Monkeys in Varanasi, India

A couple of locals laying around on the rooftops, in India's one and only Varanasi. They're absolutely everywhere here, and when you venture up on to a rooftop yourself, and look across the city. You'll see them climbing from one building to another. Beware though, they're not the friendliest bunch. I was chased multiple times down the street by one of these. I guess it didn't like it's photo taken!

Zanzibar Sunset

Another stunning sunset on Zanzibar, an island off the coast of eastern Africa. Every night we would sit on the beach, sipping on our cocktails or beers while watching these beautiful colours light up the evening sky. This is where I had my 30th :-)

This long exposure is taken from the Zanzibar's furthermost point, Nungwi Beach. There are numerous old boats and jetties that lay in ruins, scattered down the shore line and make for some great photography. The waves at this particular point crash quite a bit, so the biggest challenge taking this photograph was trying not to get water on my lens while shooting.

Sailing Central America

I love how this photograph captures the lovely warm nights on the caribbean coast of Hondurus. As this boat slowly goes sailing by in the gentle breeze, we sat on our jetty sipping beers and swapping travel stories... I also got my advanced open water divers license here. Amazing times and amazing memories...

The Devil’s Throat, Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Iguazu Falls would have to be one of the most destructive and beautiful sites (at the same time) on the planet. At 2.5 km’s (1.5 miles) long, it’s one of the widest waterfalls in the world. In wet season, over 13 MILLION litres (that’s 13,000,000) of water spill over every single second. This of course is absolutely impossible to imagine, and in this circumstance – seeing is believing! And wow what a site this is. The ‘Devil’s Throat’ at the most northern end of the falls, is just a small section of Iguazu, but by far is the most jaw dropping part of the day.

This particular photograph doesn’t actually encompass the full force of the ‘Devil’s Throat’, but is what leads directly up to it. The epicentre of the carnage is just to the right of this frame.

These series of shots of the Devil’s Throat, would have to be some of the most difficult photographs I’ve had to take. The amount of mist (which was more like heavy rain at times) in the air meant that my camera was saturated within a second of taking it out, no matter what way I was facing. So to pull this shot off, I had to set everything up manually underneath my clothes; including estimating the shutter speed and manually focus (as by the time the auto focus or light metering system kicked in, there was too much water on the lens to take a clear shot). Then quickly whip it out and take the photo without anytime at all to compose. Due to how overcast the day was, I waited quite a while till the sun breached the clouds and lit up that grass for a nice rich green before taking the shot. All in all, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out in such difficult circumstances.

Paradise in the middle of the Pacific.

Samoa, it's a hidden treasure! Currently under appreciated by the tourism industry, you can still visit and not be swamped by tourists at every corner. The lovely people, stunning mountains, lush forests, and picture perfect beaches, all collate to form one very special place.

One of my favourite mountain ranges, Torres del Paine of South America

Right at the southern tip of the continent, sits Patagonia. A place where violent winds ravage the land, and the weather patterns are simply unpredictable. It can be a difficult time trekking down here! However, those who brave the elements can be rewarded with some of the world's most amazing scenery, the Paine mountain range. Simply stunning!
