Surfs up! (サーフィン)

I took this shot at Trigg Beach in Perth, WA earlier in the week. The waves were quite good, and I got a number of reasonably good photos. Check out my gallery at (gallery) for the rest of the pics.

Diving with Sea Turtles (ウミガメとのスノーケル)

My wife and I just got back from 10 days in the Maldives and we had some amazing experiences swimming with the sea turtles. They are such beautiful creatures.

Kyoto by night 2 (夜の京都: 2)

After 10 years in Japan I am about to leave and head back to Australia. So here is my last pic posted from Japan. I will keep posting from Aus, so check back in in a few weeks! I took this the other night while wandering around Kyoto.

Stockholm Sunset (ストックホルムサンセット)

I took this in Sweden a few years back. Every evening in the summer the sky would fill with hot air balloons. It was a beautiful sight.

Photo Book (写真の本)

I have produced a book of a collection of photos I have taken over the last 10 years. It includes animals, wildlife, landscapes, people and Japanese scenes. You can check it out here, and even buy it if you are interested. I had a few copies made for presents and was very pleased with the result and book quality.

Reverse Macro (リバースマクロ)

I tried this out last night with a cheap used lens that I picked up at a second hand camera shop. I have only taken a few quick snaps but was pleased with the result so far. This is a 22mm 5 yen coin. Click on the image to see a a larger resolution version of the pic. This is much better than a 1:1 macro shot!

Getting Lucky (ラッキーチャンス)

It's not often these guys let you get close to enough to where they perch to take a decent pic. This black kite moved a few times, but finally got used to me following him and let me get reasonably close for a decent shot. (taken on the same day as the one below)
