On Ometepe Island there is this airstrip. It is crossed by the main road the goes around the island. When there is a plane landing the road is closed. This woud be a great airport to land at with the view outside your window.

Rio Celeste

Rio Celeste is a found in Costa Rica. The water is naturally blue. This is called the Laguna Azul. The water turns blue because of a chemical reaction. As the two water courses mix it increases the size of aluminosilicate particles. When the sun shines it reflects off the aluminosilicate as blue. When you go to the Tenorio Volcano National Park you can see where the reaction starts and see a blue water fall also.

Bungle Bungles, Purnululu National Park

Over the last 2 weeks I have had the opportunity to work up in the Kimberly and Top End Region. I was guiding a group of Gap Year students showing and experiencing new areas such as Purnululu National Park. The photo above is one of the many sunsets that we saw while we were traveling the Top End. It was very hot. We spent two mornings assisting rangers clearing paths, removing cane toads, and clearing campsites. The work we did made a difference to the appearance to areas that we cleaned. In the afternoon we explored the walks. On the first day we went to the Cathedral and Picaninny Creek. The next day we explored the Echidna Chasm. There is a lot more to see. I found the best time is in the evening and early mornings. Some places are best seen at midday.

Wake and Water Drops

I spent 2 months living and working in the Whitsundays. On one of my trips around the island, I took this photo on the boat ride to a snorkeling spot. It was an experimental shot. It has turned out a lot better than I thought. I had my hand hanging over the side of the boat as we were crossing the Whitsunday Bay.

Waters Recede

In January 2016 there were two floods across the Jellat Jellat Flats when the Bega River burst its banks. I took this photo two weeks after. It takes a long time for it to recede. As the water recedes, it leaves the land brown. The water that is now left will evaporate.

Mountains of Li River

I spent a day traveling along the Li River between Guilin and Yangshuo. The day was raining. Most of the mountains were hidden by the low lying cloud. The day wasn’t going to be the best for a boat cruise. It turned out really well though. The low clouds created a mystery and added drama. This is one of the many photos I took between the rain. Most of the time I hid in a corner on the boat trying my best to dodge the rain and keep my camera dry. I did learn that a shopping bag is a goo way to stop the rain. There were not plastic bags in my bag that day. Continue reading “Mountains of Li River”
