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.

Whilst staying in Kauai, you cannot miss the drive to Waimea Canyon and also Kokee State Park. There are two ways to drive to Waimea Canyon, turn up Waimea Canyon Drive (Hwy. 550) at Waimea town; or you can pass through Waimea and turn up Kokee Road (Hwy. 55) at Kekaha. I would suggest taking one way up and the alternative drive back down. We went up via Hwy. 550 and down to Kekaha.  Along both roads, there are epic views that...

We were so looking forward to the helicopter flight.  We had taken the helicopter (doors off) on the Big Island to see the volcano and what an experience. Our pilot on The Big Island was an ex Airforce Pilot and he certainly gave us a thrilling ride.

If you've been following any of my other blogs, you will know we always hire a car (which our friends give us a hard time over, but we like road tripping).  I'm always the dri...

The Grand Canyon considered to be one of the seven wonders of the natural world. Walk the South Rim, take in the magical sunsets and sunrises. Spend time above the Canyon on a helicopter flight.

We had left Monument Valley early, as we needed to be at Antelope Canyon by 9.30am for a private tour of Upper Antelope Canyon at 10.00am. Driving time from Monument Valley to Antelope Canyon is approximately  2 1/2 hours.

I had been so excited to photograph Antelope Canyon - with the lines, the light, the tone and vibrancy of such a natural phenomenon.  I couldn't wait to see how the gushing water over centuries had carved out...

Is Monument Valley on your bucket list......well it should be.  For many, it's a life long dream.  With sandstone buttes, colossal mesas, and panoramic vistas, Monument Valley has captured the imagination of photographers and film makers for decades.  It is well known for being one of the USA’s iconic landscapes. 

A visit to Monument Valley will afford you more than a few snapshots and pretty scene...

Yellowstone’s abundant and diverse wildlife are as famous as its geysers. It is reported that there are nearly 300 species of birds, 16 species of fish, five species of amphibians, six species of reptiles, and 67 species of mammals—including seven native ungulate species and two bear species.

We love our wildlife and can spend hours, days and weeks immersing our-self into their natural habitats.  We spend a lot of time research...

The rain was falling hard when we woke, but that wasn't going to deter our enthusiasm for our next adventure.  An early morning start followed by a quick breakfast, before boarding a private shuttle which would take us from Kenai Riverside to Seward.  We would then board a chartered water taxi to take us and about 10 other people to Aialik Bay.

This next adventure presented us with some of the most amazing scenery, wildlif...

Every time I see a Hot Air Balloon, I watch them with awe as they gracefully glide through the sky towards the horizon, thinking one day I will do that.  Well, my daughters obviously picked up on my frequent upward glances and arranged a joint Mother's Day/Birthday present for two.

Now you just can't fly these glamorous balloons whenever you feel like it, so it did take about 2 months before we finally had to set our alarm for...
