Sony a9 review as seen through the eyes of a no-frills wildlife photographer. I don’t care about number of pixels and I really don’t care what most of the images look like at 200% because that’s unrealistic. Let’s face it, for most of us, if it’s good enough for the we...

San Isidro Lighthouse, Chile 

Off to the races I go. Yesterday I was sitting in a military air strip waiting room with what felt like half of the Falkland Islands (screaming kids included) and now I write to you from a small house on the Straits of Magellan. Punta Arena...

The sun is rising later and later with each passing day which allowed us a leisurely wake up before the morning transit from Beaver Island to Port Stephens. Distance: about 40 nautical miles. Conditions: sloppy. Consistent SW wind 15-25 knots.

A slow-burning sunrise t...

I’ve had this rattling around in my head the last few days but really haven’t felt like committing it to words. I don’t know if my apprehension has been laziness or acknowledging that my season in the Antarctic is over. I wouldn’t say it ended with a bang nor with a f...

This is in many ways the turning point of the trip for me. We had the chance to visit a Dayak village an hour up river and we met incredibly nice people who welcomed us into their village to share some of the culture which makes them unique. I cannot truly say a bad th...

Bellot Strait

On the west side of the NW Passage most of the transits are through wide sounds and most of the islands are quite flat and low. Honestly it’s not the most interesting scenery. Things start to get more interesting as you head east as the islands become more...

I have to get this down as quickly as possible so I don’t forget things. I might do some editing but if it gets choppy or disconnected just know it was a burst of creativity.

We are in Barentsburg right now. It’s a Russian Territory, yet we are on a Norwegian Island cha...

We left the European continent and headed into open water for 500 miles of rolling in the North Sea. To say that time passed slowly would be an understatement. There were occasional bouts of sea bird activity, but since the entire track would be over the continental sh...

The current has been really strong the last few days due to the new moon. At our anchorage you could see the swirling water and the schools of fish feeding on the interface between the currents. What looked like drifting yellow leaves were really yellow and blue fusili...
