The Adventure will continues in 2015, a 4 day helicopter trip around Cape York in February and then a few days around Cairns, including a visit to AWC’s Brooklyn Sanctuary.
Next a second trip to Flinders Island.
Then the big trip across to the The Kimberley for a few months.
Late in the year a month in New Zealand. The Adventures continues.
The Doc’ parents house overlooks Angels Beach, East Ballina. Here is a selection of sands from the beach, intermixed with algae, wind and wave action, rutile, footprints and even some surf scum. Take more notice next time you walk along a beach.
Over the last few days Lake Eyre is filling up again. Great report from Australian Wildlife Conservancy’s Kalamurina Sanctuary on the north edge of Lake Eyre, with pictures, click here.
This series has has sand, rutile, algae, surf scum, bark, clay, rain drops, lichens, basalt and clouds! The broadest group so far, enjoy, click here.

Just over 12 months since The Doc visited Easter Island. A quick recap.
Traditional Rapa Nui dress.
Just over 12 months since The Doc returned from the Galapagos Islands. A couple of pictures to bring back some good memories.
Despite going out quite few times the sunset opportunities have been limited. In some cases, no photos at all. The best so far is below, which is just OK.
Managed a shot last night with a 600mm lens!
The weather has been terrible, thus limiting photo opportunities. So The Doc decided to write a practical guide on using a tilt shift lense. Teaching himself how to properly use a tilt shift lense has been one of the challenges The Doc has set himself on the Adventure.
Tilt shift lenses are not for everyone but they are great for landscape shots. They are also useful for architectural and product photography. They can also be used for creating miniature effects. Click here for the Guide.

Something for gearheads this time. The Doc is increasingly using filters in his landscape work, examples include the recent Ballina Lighthouse work and many of the landscape shots in Flinders Island. The Doc is just not using filters but interestingly he is using a tilt shift lens to get panoramic shots.
As part of the research over the years he has a large list of resources on filters. So this has been added to the blog, here.
