Photo of the Week: Roaring Athabasca Falls

On Alberta’s Icefields Parkway, there is evidence of the eponymous icefields everywhere. If you can’t see a glacier perched precariously on a mountaintop, you’re sure to be able to see a glacier-fed river following the road or a brilliantly-coloured lake filling up the next valley over. It’s not surprising that travel publications like National Geographic…

Photo of the Week: Mr. Reindeer, You’re Doing It Wrong

You’ve heard of the World Cup of soccer/football, you’ve heard of the Rugby World Cup…but have you heard of the World Cup of reindeer racing? Essentially, this is where (crazy) people put on skis and tie themselves to a rampaging reindeer, presumably having done this many times before since they’ve made it to the World…

Photo of the Week: Finally Seeing the Northern Lights in Porjus

As many of you know, my short trip to Lapland last year was the inspiration for my ‘Texan in Lapland’ tour around Scandinavia this year. On that trip, I stayed in the Porjus Northern Lights Apartments for three nights, hoping that the long nights of January would give me extra time to see the aurora…

My Twelve Best Aussie Photos of 2012

Despite a few setbacks, overall 2012 was a fantastic year for me. This showed through my photos; I took an incredible number (roughly 14,000 according to Lightroom) because I took a lot of opportunities to travel, both within Australia and abroad. Much of my travel within Australia was around South East Queensland, which was great…

Photo of the Week: A Fisherman’s Sunset on Stradbroke Island

Unlike many cities in Australia, Brisbane doesn’t actually have a beach (unless you count Streets Beach at South Bank, which I don’t). There are plenty of beautiful beaches on both the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, which are only a short car trip away, but one of my favourite seaside spots is one that many tourists…

Photo of the Week: Tile Murals at Pinhão Train Station

The first day of our post-TBU-conference trip certainly lived up to its name. The ‘Grapes and Sailors’ trip took us sailing up the Douro River, whose green waters wind between terraced hills covered in port wine vineyards. The town where we boarded our boat, Pinhão, is considered by many to be the heart of the…

Photo of the Week: The Coffee Combi

The Brisbane Festival is…well, what exactly? Up until a few years ago, I hadn’t paid any attention to the event at all. River Festival — a week of festivities along the Brisbane River that started with a huge fireworks spectacular called Riverfire — was the event I always marked on my calendar. In 2009, that festival was…

Photo of the Week: Santos City of Lights

Every September, Brisbane holds a big celebration of…well, Brisbane. This festival — creatively called the Brisbane Festival and formerly known as the River Festival — is about three weeks long and includes all sorts of cultural events throughout the city and South Bank. To be honest, I’ve never really attended many of those events, but…

Photo Essay: Queen Charlotte Sound’s Historic Ship Cove

The Queen Charlotte Track, which winds its way between Queen Charlotte and Kenepuru Sounds in Marlborough, starts its journey at Ship Cove (Meretoto). When I arrived there on a ferry from Picton, I knew that I had plenty of time before dusk (and no tent to set up at my first stop in the Endeavour…

Photo of the Week: The Sydney Harbour Bridge at Night

I have a thing for taking photos of bridges at night. I don’t know why — I’ve never been particularly fascinated with how bridges are constructed (although it might have been easier to choose a major at uni if I was). It just seems like since I’ve taken up night photography, I’ve been attracted to…
