Exploring East Greenland: The Sun Sets on Scoresby Sund

Time feels as frozen as the icebergs floating on the bay in front of me. My mind has stopped wandering, incapable of focusing on anything but the moment I am in. My eyes are fixated on the seemingly motionless water that has exploded into a kaleidoscope of soft tones, reflecting from the sky as the […]

In Pictures: Sunset at the Avenue of Baobabs, Madagascar

A short drive from Morondava on Madagascar’s west coast, is a tree-lined dirt road of such natural and unique beauty, it has been recognised as the island’s first officially protected natural monument. It is called the Avenue of the Baobabs. It is one of the most visited and photographed sites in Madagascar. And it was […]

Finland in Pictures: A Lake and a Sunset in Kajaani

I start the day in a taxi, the morning rush hour turning what should be a ten minute drive into a marathon.  I’ve taken this journey from my flat in North London to Paddington Station enough times to expect nothing less and feel more relaxed than the driver who is swearing and changing direction at every […]

Antarctica in Pictures: Sunset and Moonrise on the Bransfield Strait

“Tonight’s activities have been cancelled due to exceptionally good weather”. I smiled as I heard our expedition leader make this announcement shortly after dinner.

The Sun Sets on Ushuaia (Argentina)

In this post, the sun sets on Ushuaia – both figuratively and literally. These photos were taken soon after I arrived in Argentina’s southernmost town last month. And last week I waved goodbye to it for the foreseeable future, uncertain when – and if – I’ll be back. Ushuaia has been the bookends of both […]

Australian Sunset in Pictures – From Henley Beach, Adelaide

I love ending the day with a good sunset and I’ve certainly seen a few.  I’ve sipped cocktails and cold beers during sunset happy hours, I’ve gazed across golden-lit landscapes lost in my own thoughts and dreams and I’ve focused (pun intended) on capturing the last light of the day with my camera. I’ve enjoyed […]

Exploring South Australia: Top 10 Sunrise & Sunset Photographs

  (Sunset at Gym Beach, Yorke Peninsula) Over the past few years, as I’ve stepped further away from my own backyard and embraced the world of travel, I’ve become more inspired by what I’ve seen.  As I’ve grown more inspired, my love of photography has evolved as I’ve tried to share this inspiration with others.

Photo Gallery: Antarctic Sunsets

During my days in Antarctica I felt like I was moving within a landscape painting, created with a palette limited to blues and whites.  The exception was the late evening, as the sun began to set.  The palette opened to include a range of pastel colours, softening the light and providing an incredible backdrop to […]
