Classic view overlooking Godafoss in Iceland. The only epic sunset we caught on our two weeks here, but at least it lasted for an hour or so.

Talisker Bay on the Isle of Skye. Close the gates behind you, because this area is a working sheep farm. No colour explosion for this sunset, but there were enough lines around to make things work.


Lambing season on the Faroe Islands 🇫🇴



Classic scenes in Iceland, coupled with classic Icelandic weather. Taken from up near Dyrholaey.



Stack Island / Rangoon Island, just off the tip of Minnamurra headland on the south coast. A low swell and receding tide allowed access to these rock ledges, which might have otherwise been too sketchy. .

The crazy landscape around the base of Namafjall in northern Iceland.



It may smell like rotten eggs and make you dizzy, but the geothermal area around Namafjall in Iceland is amazing. What I found surprising was the level of access you had as a tourist - a few roped off areas and boardwalks but other than that you could walk anywhere (sensibly of course). Refreshing.


A different type of seascape from a different type of place. We parked the campervan overnight in the car park near Jokulsarlon, hoping to catch a break in the weather. The rain stopped for a few minutes, leaving behind some shiny sand to contrast with the icebergs and sea fog.


Two trees at Little Bay, Sydney. Looking forward to getting back out around Sydney's surrounds to see what I can find. This is one of my favourite monochrome shots, taken and processed (heavily) last year.



Tabular bergs at sunrise on a stormy day, just north of the Antarctic Peninsula. Taken on a trip with @quarkexpeditions in November 2015.


Back in Sydney after 14 months on the road. This was one of the last shots I took in Sydney before heading off - Sylvia Falls after a heavy downpour.


Didn't find these falls on the hike up to Laguna Los Tres, but on the walk back (with less wind and rain noise) I made an educated guess and found them. There was still a fair bit of water flow as we were here at the start of summer. If you'd like to find them too I've put a guide up on my website (link in bio).



We spent a night in the camper down at Hvitserkur on the Vatnsnes peninsula. Tide and weather conditions didn't work out, but found this image on the short walk back to the camper. You can see glimpses of red seaweed on the shore and a red shack if you look closely.


Crystal clear night skies over the Matterhorn. Spent a couple of nights up at 3100 Gornergrat in the hope of getting some shots like this. You can see the grooming machines working the ski slopes below the peak.


The village of Saksun under a light snow shower, tucked up in the northwest corner of Streymoy in the Faroe Islands. Small grass-roofed huts look out over the inlet to the ocean - if you set sail from here the next land you'd hit would be Iceland.



Sea stacks and sea birds at Reynisfjara. At low tide you can make it right around to these stacks. Just make sure to keep an eye on the tides, plenty of people get into trouble on this stretch of coast.


Ice crystals on the black sand beach near Jökulsárlón in Iceland.


Litla Dimun with a fresh dusting of snow, taken from the shoreline at Hvalba on the island of Suduroy. Changeable weather at its finest on the Faroe Islands.


The lower set of falls at Kirkjufellsfoss in Iceland. A classic photo spot that's hard to do uniquely, but when the sunset looks like this you don't need to do too much. I spent two weeks here after the Faroe Islands and Scotland, and it was an unreal way to end my time in the North Atlantic.


Isolated cottage on the far side of Levisvatn / Sorvagsvatn on the Faroese island of Vagar.


An image of the view towards Litla Dimun from the track up towards Asmundarstakkur, near the town of Sandvik on the island of Suduroy (excuse the English spelling of these Faroese place names).


After the Faroe Islands I spent a couple of weeks in Scotland hiking the West Highland Way and exploring the Isle of Skye. On my last night there the sky was looking promising so I headed out to Neist Point for sunset. This is a two shot blend - the headland shot a few minutes before sundown to get that warm angled light and the sky a few minutes after to get that colour.

A view of Mykines you won't be able to find on the Faroe Islands. A composite of my favourite shaped Faroese island (Mykines) and some really nice light we had down on Suduroy.

A classic Faroe Islands scene on the road to Gjogv, in the northeast corner of the island of Eysturoy. We woke up to a couple of inches of overnight snow and quickly headed out to check out some of our favourite spots under a fresh snowfall.


Back from the Faroe Islands and Scotland. This is the classic shot of the Mulafossur near the village of Gasadalur on the island of Vagar. Until a tunnel was drilled in 2004 the only way in and out of this village was by boat, helicopter or on foot over a 400m mountain pass.


Massive tabular bergs off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. You know you're getting close to the southern continent when you start seeing these guys drifting past.


The 5,900m Cotopaxi volcano near Latacunga in Ecuador, one of the world's highest volcanoes. Here you can see its summit glacier peeking out from the clouds, overlooking a debris field from past eruptions. The summit has been closed since an eruption in mid 2015, but you can still get up to around 5,000m.
