This is the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory. The telescopes move along rail track which used to take trains between Cambridge and Bedford. Tomorrow we hit the road to Grantham, to continue our tour of the UK before we fly back to Australia next month.
This shot was taken with my old Olympus E-330. It is Qesm Al Wahat Al Khargah in the New Valley Governorate Egypt. At least that is the address Google gave after I spent half the morning searching for it. This is one of the drawbacks of digging out a 7 year old photo from a balloon flight […]
This is the Left Lion in front of the Council House in Nottingham. Anyone who has lived in this city for more than a few years will have met someone at this historic rendezvous point. I have spent the last four days in Nottingham catching up with friends by meeting at various bars, cafes and […]
This is the avant-garde jazz band Polar Bear. We saw them play last night, in a subterranean venue called The Space, which is inside the Nottingham Contemporary Art Centre in the lace market area of Nottingham, UK. Like most gigs, there was barely any light. I used a 5D Mark II at its highest sensitivity – ISO 25,600. This […]
This is the Treasury in Petra, Jordan. It was made famous by Indiana Jones when Harrison Ford and Sean Connery “discovered it” while looking for the Holy Grail. It has of course been known to everyone in Jordan for thousands of years. I took this shot in 2007 with an Olympus E-330. At that time the Adobe Camera […]
This dew covered spider web was shot on a foggy morning in Cambridge, UK. We are in the final stages of family farewells before we fly to Sydney, Australia in two days time.
I shot these gold bangles in the Dubai International Airport during our stopover between the UK and Australia. We have done this trip a few times now, but it is the first time we have stopped in the United Arab Emirates. We flew on a Boeing 777 for the first leg then switched to an A380. […]
This is the town of Glen Innes in New South Wales, Australia. It is twinned with Pitlochry in Scotland, UK. I suspect there have been a number of Scottish settlers, since many of the places in the area have Celtic names. This shot was taken in what photographers call the golden hour. This is the […]
This is Grace Potter, who along with her band The Nocturnals, put on an awesome performance tonight at the Byron Bay Bluesfest in New South Wales, Australia. The festival is small enough that we managed to get to the front row for Grace Potter, Eric Bibb and Seth Lakeman today. We hope we are lucky […]
The 25th April is Anzac Day in Australia. Originally to honour the members of the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps who fought at Gallipoli. Today it serves as a National day of remembrance similar to the 11th November in the UK.
This is The Anglo Australian Telescope in New South Wales. It is Australia’s largest optical telescope. It was the first telescope designed specifically to be controlled by computer. It was also the last large telescope to use an equatorial mount instead of the more compact and stable alt-azimuth. Despite the old mount the computers allowed the […]
Dingos are the largest terrestrial predator in Australia. This appears to be a pure dingo due to its red brown coat and white paws. However like much of Australia’s wildlife you can never be quite sure. Interbreeding with domestic dogs and the inability to form a consensus as to what a dingo is, put this animal […]
This is Dave Matthews playing at the 2014 Byron Bay Bluesfest, New South Wales, Australia. 20 years ago I was sent a demo tape of Dave Matthews to review. In the early days I believe the band were looking into touring in the UK and I wrote them a rave review. I have been a fan ever since. This […]
This is the great Pyramid on the edge of Cairo in Egypt. I was trying to use the wall to lead the eye and give a sense of scale. It has been a busy week. We have both been working in the day and moving furniture in the evenings. Tomorrow we hope to collect our fridge which […]
This weekend we visited the Blues on Broadbeach Festival. Last time we were here was for the Jazz Festival. This is the Melbourne Ska Orchestra who put on a high energy rollercoaster performance. Building on a love for the music of The Specials and Madness, they have taken Ska to a whole new level. The 25 piece […]
These are Australian Pelicans in South Australia. There must be plenty of fish in the ocean when birds like this get big enough to block your walk along the beach.
Earlier this year we were exploring the gold towns of New South Wales. This “Old Mine” was part of a museum in the back of the tourist information centre in Cobar. Photoshop and Fractalius were used to process the image.
Lightning Ridge is a mining town in New South Wales. It has the planets richest deposit of black opal. This corrugated iron building was used in the film The Goddess of 1967, which is about a Japanese man who travels to Australia to buy a car.
This is the Sydney Harbour Bridge during the Vivid Sydney Festival. Every winter the city lights up when the nights are long. We are enjoying watching the goalfest which is Brazil 2014, even though it occasionally involves getting up at 5am to watch England lose again. Australia have looked impressive and face Spain next.
These colourful umbrellas were inside a building in Melbourne, Australia. My camera struggled to guess the white balance as there was very little neutral grey to calibrate with. One of the benefits of shooting in RAW is you can set the colour temperature after you take the photo. In this case I could remove the blue/green […]
