Return to Mashatu

The Aurora - A Bucket List Adventure in Alaska
On top of my Bucket List was to see the beautiful Northern Lights so with borrowed kit I headed north to Alaska where I joined a small group of fellow adventurers in search of the ever elusive Aurora! In both Fairbanks and Wiseman, both under the Aurora belt we were so incredibly lucky to experience magnificent displays of the dancing shimmering lights of the North!

Red Wrens of Caba
Cabarita Headland is listed as an "Endangered Ecological Community" which is classified as a "Themeda Grassland" and is rare and fragile. Poor soil, strong salt laden winds, full exposure and human activity threaten this fragile community. It is home to a tiny bird - the Red-backed Fairy Wren which is the smallest of the Fairy Wrens weighing only 8 grams. These Red Wrens are endemic to Australia and have a fascinating social order with the brightly coloured male in charge supported by numerous little brown females and youngsters!

Colours of Japan
I was very taken with the vibrant colours in Japan - from the vermilion colour of the many shrines and tori gates to the array of bright colours in the beautiful kimono worn by the Geisha, Maiko and young girls and also the stunning bright green of the mosses and new spring foliage of the trees. I tried to capture these colours in my images!

Peace in the World
This Audio-Visual shows the emotion I felt when I visited the Peace Park in Hiroshima. The Children's Monument was particularly poignant as when I was there a group of school children presented their paper cranes to the monument - it was very moving indeed.
