Porcupine Gorge National Park
Covering an area of 5410ha, Porcupine Gorge National Park extends for more than 25kms along Porcupine Creek and includes surrounding open woodland and grassland. The creek has carved an impressive canyon that reveals strata of sedimentary rocks spanning hundreds of millions of years. In the wider section of the gorge the eroding action of the creek has also created the Pyramid, an isolated monolith of multicoloured sandstone rising from the floor of the gorge, shaped as its name suggests.
Plants and Flowers

Isle of May guillemots
With around 45,000 guillemots (Uria aalge) present during the spring and summer, the Isle of May is an important breeding colony for these large auks. Guillemots, or murres, spend most of their time at sea, only coming ashore to breed. They make no nest, but lay a single egg on the bare rock of cliff faces. Bridled guillemots with a white ring around the eye are a polymorphism that represent about 10% of the population on the Isle.
Wildlife in the Canberra suburbs. I live across from a pond used to protect the Murrumbidgee from storm water pollution. It proves you don't need to go to exotic locations and sit in hides for days with 600mm lenses to get good wildlife images. I took these shots over 3 weeks on about 7 hourish walks around Stranger pond. These all have wings but other Aussie animals are there too. Some shots were only 100-150 meters from my front door; even the shots of the Egret catching the carp.

Inspired by New Zealand
New Zealand is a great travel destination with its mountains, alpine vegetation, lakes, fjords and clear streams cascading down the slopes. Nature is incredibly beautiful; in the park like Zealandia one can admire the native flora and fauna; in Rototua the geysers, hot springs and historic buildings. The cities are easy to visit on foot, people are friendly, and food and coffee are great.
Canberra, the beautiful city
The images in this collection were taken during my visits in spring and then in summer. White flowering trees by the Lake Burley Griffin were a pleasant sight, and the Reconciliation Place featured unique artworks. Canberra is a place of national politics but also of science, research and art. Many buildings, including those of the Australian National University or the Canberra Airport, are modern and often set among the native vegetation.
British and Foreign Insects
Skyfire 2017 is the 29th year for this fireworks event. It is probably the biggest single public event in Canberra. I hadn't been for a few years but this year thought I'd get a better view from one of the cruise boats. (Except they are always moving.) I caught most parts of the 20 minute show.

The Eurasian treecreeper (Certhia familiaris) is a small passerine common in woodlands across Europe and Asia. In the British Isles, it prefers broadleaved woodland where it can be seen creeping up tree trunks using its long claws searching for insects in the bark with its long, curved bill. Its upper plumage is brown mottled with black and white, which provides excellent camouflage against tree bark, with a white underside and brown trail, which it uses for support as it ascends the tree.
Solar Panel Installation
These photographs follow the process of installing 132 solar panels on the roof of a commercial workshop. This photovoltaic system powers a large engineering operation and the finished solar array provides the business owner with large amounts of green energy. The installation involves the electricians manhandling the panels onto the roof, fitting the rails, fitting the panels and wiring the inverter to change the power from DC to AC.

I visited the Etosha National Park in northwestern Namibia during December 2016. It is a place full of magic, and the largest wildlife sanctuary in Namibia spanning an area of 22,270 square kilometres (8,600 sq mi). The park is home to hundreds of species of mammals, birds and reptiles, including several threatened and endangered species such as the black rhinoceros.

Like all hyraxes, it is a medium-sized (~4 kg) terrestrial mammal, superficially resembling a guinea pig with short ears and tail. The closest living relatives to hyraxes are the modern-day elephants and sirenians. The rock hyrax is found across Africa and the Middle East. Photographed in Bettys Bay, South Africa.
Tofo is a coastal town in southeastern Mozambique, 550km from the capital Maputo. It's known for the curved Tofo Beach and nearby coral reefs. It is located in the popular Imhambane Province in Mozambique. Life pretty much takes place on the beach and at the outdoor Tofo market, which also serves as the town square. English and Portuguese are widely spoken by the friendly locals. Fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving and spearfishing are popular tourist attractions.
The African penguin (Spheniscus demersus), also known as the jackass penguin and black-footed penguin is a species of penguin, confined to southern African waters. It is also widely known as the jackass penguin for its donkey-like bray. Photos taken at the Stony Point Penguin Colony, Bettys Bay, South Africa.
The Chacma baboon (Papio ursinus), also known as the Cape baboon. In general the species is not threatened, but human population pressure has increased contact between humans and baboons. Photographed in Bettys Bay, South Africa.
Waveski surfing is a dynamic sport combining the paddle power of a sit on top kayak with the manoeuvrability and performance of a surfboard. A Waveski resembles a larger surfboard, with the addition of a seat, fins, foot straps, and seat belt, enabling the rider to eskimo roll if overturned. The waveski rider or waveski surfer uses a double ended kayak paddle for motion while seated in the waveski. Photographed in South Africa.
The Cape cormorant or Cape shag (Phalacrocorax capensis) is a seabird endemic to the southwestern coasts of Africa.
