Rome, Italy, September 2017.

Fading light on the ruins of Rome's Flavian Amphitheatre reminds us that every empire eventually has its sunset.

Red Memories

Hoi An, Vietnam, May 2013.

Through incense and names, generations of ancestors look upon you.

Monkey Business

Emei Shan, China, May 2008.

Cute monkeys? What is not on the picture are the guards wielding 5m bamboo pikes to keep those "cute" monkeys from using their teeth to scare tourists into giving them food...

Hide and Seek with the Clouds

Halong Bay, Vietnam, May 2013.

Over a gently rocking sea, the sun plays hide and seek with the clouds. Shadows race past, one minute you stand in light and heat, the next you are in a slightly darker, cooler version of the world.

Bamboo for Two

Chengdu, China, May 2008.

  • You know what tastes better than bamboo? Asked the first panda.

  • More bamboo? Tried the second.

  • Yeah.


Penang, Malaysia, October 2013.

When colours fade in your memories, all that is left is nostalgia.

Looking Down on the Sun

Mount Pilatus, Switzerland, July 2015.

What is the best thing about being on top of a mountain at sunrise? You are standing higher than the Sun... for a minute.

Lonely Tree

Mayfield Bay, Australia, January 2015.

Ah it feels good to have space to breathe!
