About Me

I'm an avid traveller based on the Gold Coast, Australia.  I love my photography.  My other passions involve outdoor activities, including snowboarding, surfing and  wakeboarding.  You'll find me riding every morning, swimming as much as I can and loving late night walks with my pups along the beach front.  Wildlife and nature amaze me and my favourite time is spent in the wilderness.

I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list

There are many beautiful places to see and photograph.  This world has a lot to offer.  My aim is to capture these adventures.  This website is a way for me to display my photos, my experiences and my passion to the world.

On this trip, my main aim in relation to bird viewing was to go in search of Puffins, which I have featured in another blog.

Aside from Puffins which most tourists come to see, there are many other species of birds to be found in Iceland. About 85 species of birds nest...

A trip to Iceland would not be complete without a blog on the Icelandic horse. 

The Icelandic horse is a unique breed of smallish horses that came to Iceland with the first settlers from Norway 1100 years ago. When the first settlers sailed from Norway to Iceland in the...

We reluctantly left our fantastic accommodation at Ytri Vik.  These little cottages sit above the fjord with such wonderful views and are so comfortable, relaxing and tranquil, it was hard to leave. 

The trip to Grundafjordur takes about 5 hours by car, that is wit...

The Icelandic sheep is a breed of domestic sheep. Genetically the Icelandic sheep is the same today as it was 1100 years ago. It is possibly the oldest and purest domesticated breed of sheep in the world today.  I have read that the Icelandic sheep is special in many w...

On our second day in Akureyri we decided to take a whale tour out through the fjord.  The weather was gorgeous, the water was crystal clear with a beautiful shade of blue and almost glassy.  We opted for the slower boat which was considerably less expensive than the IR...

Loved this little town, well not so little town.  Akureyri is very large, well compared to other places in Iceland and it's apparently the second largest urban area in Iceland.  This was the first place in Iceland we actually walked around the town and looked at a coup...

I'm going to split this part of our trip into a couple of sections, as we saw and experienced so many wonderful features of Iceland during this part of the journey; and I have too many pictures for one blog.

Before I start though, if you take a trip to Iceland and want...

The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.

The Northern Lights, known as th...

We were staying in Vik for the night and knew there was an area close by which was a popular spot for the Puffins to nest.  After a quick Google search, we found that the best place to see the puffins was at Reynisfjara Beach.  This was about a 10 minute trip in the ca...

After staying in a bubble overnight in Reykholt on Day 1 we started our journey around Iceland, with our next stop being Vik.  We stayed at Hotel Katla which is located just outside of Vik.  We spent many hours around 9pm watching the puffins at Reynisfjara Beach.  Wha...
