Magic of Croatia

Yes, we have been on the road again! We went for some warmer weather in September, and headed to Croatia. Our first trip and certainly not our last. When we were in Slovenia earlier this year we went temptingly close to the boarder with Croatia, and I always wanted to go for the awesome coastline Croatia has. So we took the car and blasted…

Plitvice Lakes National Park – Croatia

Plitvice Lakes National Park was one of the biggest highlights on my recent trip to Croatia. It is simply the most amazing aquatic ecosystem I have ever seen. The scale of the place, and the way that you can traverse this park leaves visitors with a memorable experience. The park is some 295 square kilometers, and comprises some 16 lakes, all chained together by…

Munich U-Bahn

Every photographer is well aware of the photogenic underground stations in different parts of the world. There are amazing stations in Stockholm, Vienna, Prague and many other place. In Australia we didn’t really have a tube, and I have never really been into architectural photography. However, I recently discovered the Munich U-bahn! The photo above is of Marienplatz, in the heart of  Munich. The…

Paper Island (Papir Øen)

One of the awesome places to visit in Copenhagen is paper island, or Papir Øen. in danish. Copenhagen is a multicultural, super modern metropolis, and paper island is a great example of this. This island is in the middle of Copenhagen harbor, with the famous opera building as a neighbor. The location was used for paper storage for the danish press for decades, hence…

Ettaler Weidmoss

There are a number of wetlands in the region we live, including Pulvermoos, Murnauer Moos, and Ettaler Weidmoss. There is lots to see, particularly if you like the flora and fauna found in this kind of environment. I went to Ettaler Weidmoss to check it out,as I spotted it coming back from the famous Schloss Linderhof. I went there a couple of hours before…

The gift of travel

What travel gives – in its purest form. What is it that travel actually gives us? Just a chance to unwind with a holiday to the beach? Or something deeper, and much more important? Is there a modern Travel craze? – Perhaps to some. It seems that a lot of people particularly the 18-35 year old age bracket are really getting out there and…

Signs of Summer

I found that my signs of spring post was fairly popular, so here is a signs of summer! It certainly is becoming summer here in Bavaria. Its been quite warm, and the flowers, grasses, and trees have been exploding. Its now bright green everywhere with lots of life! I once again took my 180mm 2.8 Macro lens out for a walk, and had a…

First trip to Slovenia!

So it was long weekend (again) here in Bavaria, aren’t we lucky? We decided to go and see Slovenia, which is pretty close to us. We sent off Saturday morning by car with my camera gear, tent and sleeping bags bound for Bled, Slovenia. Unfortunately, we soon realized we would not make Bled early afternoon as planned… the traffic was horrible. All of Germany…

Watch Tales by Light!

I have just finished watching Tales by Light. I must say it was really cool, and very inspirational. There are few films on photography, and even less worth watching. Tales by Light was done by Netflix and Canon Australia. It follows renowned photographers around the world as they chase the shot of their dreams. Its very travel and adventure related, and that makes it…

Reflecting on Travel

Hi all! I decided to make a fun photo and use it as a new featured photo in my travel albums landing page. I thought it would be cool if it was a pile of old maps and travel stuff… To be honest, I could have done a better job technically, and used some flashes and stuff, its a bit unevenly lit.. but anyway….
