My first day in Melbourne I knew exactly where I wanted to go. From my time there eight years ago I had become familiar with the city and knew that one of the best views was found from the roof of the ANZAC memorial, a 15 minute walk from the construction site that was currentlyContinue reading “Melbourne Then and Now”
I have now hiked in Repovesi National Park in autumn and winter with both trips being equally interesting in their different ways. One of the places I visited during both trips was Olhava, a huge rock cliff that is a popular spot for climbing, but also a great place for photographs. During the autumn IContinue reading “Olhava, Repovesi National Park”

I took this photograph during my trip to Bath and have already posted one version of it to my Instagram but as Instagram isn’t really built for multiple images and making comparisons I wanted to get your opinion. Which one do you prefer? Go and check out my Instagram to see which version IContinue reading “Bath Reflections”

Today Sinebrychoff Park is open for all to enjoy,Continue reading “Sinebrychoff Tower”
The Jurassic Coast is well known for its unique landscape. I have already mentioned Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, two places I was able to visit recently, but there are many others spread out along the 95 mile stretch, they include Chesil Beach and Old Harry’s Rocks. Most famously the Jurassic Coast is known forContinue reading “Written in Rock”
In Lapland winter is always coming. For a majority of the year the landscape is covered in snow and the temperatures often drop well below zero. After the Ruska period the leaves fall from the trees and the first frost isn’t far behind. The collection of photographs below are an account of the Transition between autumnContinue reading “Winter is Coming”
