Last year I went to Greenland’s Scoresby Sound for the first time… and it’s taken me this long to write about it. I think I am about 18 months behind in my processing right now, which has got to be some kind of record. I used to complain about being stuck in the gallery all the time without any time to actually get out shooting, now I have the opposite problem, I shoot so much I don’t seem to have the time to process at all! For example, I am writing this from a hotel (a rare night in a hotel to dry out the swag) while touring around Tasmania… More on this later.
Another year draws to a close and I can hardly believe it’s over already! Thanks to everyone who supported my efforts this year, came on a tour, participated in a workshop, came into the Gallery or just stopped and chatted in the street, if you didn’t do any of these things, there is always next year. Speaking of next year, it’s going to be a big one, hold on!
Gallery Holiday Hours.
All of us at the Gallery are taking a short break over Christmas and New Year, we will be back again for business as usual January 8th 2017. Until then, have a Merry Christmas and fun and relaxing New Year’s.
I have just had two spots open up for my 2016 Greenland photographic sailing adventure due to last minute cancellations. This is really last minute, as the tour actually begins from Reykjavik (Iceland) next week on 2nd of August!
To help you decide I am offering a huge discount on these two places, instead of US$6900 per place, you can have the tour for US$4500 per place. You can read all about the Greenland Sailing Photo Tour right here>>

Something a little different here, shot from a high pass in the Himalayan mountains of Bhutan during a brief pause to change a flat tyre and admire the view… I think in the opposite order though, the tyre went flat after we stopped to admire the view. Still, it gave us more time to watch the changing light and the clouds floating past below, bumping into the trees and high ridges.
I used a 200mm tele to really isolate this small scene from the mountainous background. The light was streaming down the valley and the cloud was strongly side lit giving it this magical luminous quality. The mountains behind the cloud are just visible as the slanting diagonal lines in the background.
Bhutan Photo Tour 2016 almost full.
I’ve got just 4 places left on this years 15 day Bhutan Photo Tour, leaving October 3rd from Bangkok, we have managed to coincide with three cultural festival this year, something I have never managed before.
The above image was shot with the Nikon D810 and the Nikon 70-200 f4 lens, it’s had a little cropped off the top and bottom, but very little post processing.
Contrasting with the previous entry of the Himalayan landscape without any visible sign of humans, I also love the Bhutanese traditional rice terracing found all over the mountainous countryside, like this image from the far East of Bhutan in the region of Mongar.
Bhutan is a land of small holding subsistence farming, and the vast majority of the land is still under thick native forest, in fact the forest cover is increasing yearly and it’s basically forbidden to clear new land for farming. The Bhutanese landscape is very mountainous, the valleys are steep and with only a few exceptions, narrow, so every bit of flat space is utilised carefully for cropping. When the land is not flat, they make it flat with terracing. Very clever use of space and it makes for beautiful scenery.
