  • A Nighttime Encounter With Tassie Devils

    August 13, 2014

    There are plenty of distinctive animals on this planet, but Australia seems to have more than its fair share of them. From the much-feared dropbear to the adorable quokkas of Rottnest Island, there’s an animal in this country to catch anyone’s imagination. Of all those animals, I think one of the most famous yet misunderstood…

  • Conquering the Hazards and Mount Amos

    July 25, 2014

    Usually, if something is called a ‘Hazard,’ people have a natural instinct to stay away from it. Driving hazard? Nope. Health hazard? Nuh-uh. Workplace hazard? Get me out of here before I have to fill out the paperwork! Yet, when I heard about the Hazards Range at the entrance to Freycinet National Park on Tasmania’s…

    June 21, 2014

    Nobody queues quite like the British, and nowhere do they do it better than at Wimbledon. This oldest of Grand Slams has moved into the 21 st century in leaps and bounds in the last 10 years with a highly-publicised move to equal prize money in 2007 and a brand-new roof on Centre Court to…

  • Photo Essay: The Icefields Parkway in Black & White

    June 12, 2014

    Soaring mountaintops with hidden valleys filled with the unimaginably large icefields. Wide valleys filled with glacier-ground rocks and turquoise rivers rushing towards the next waterfall. Pine trees as far as the eye can see. All of these things are synonymous with Alberta’s Highway 93, which I’ll go out on a limb and say is one…
