Bruny Island seashore at Alonnah, Bruny Island, Tasmania.


The peace and calm of a Tasmanian beach. One can walk for hours and not see another human being. An abundance of birdlife exists, waders, birds of prey, penguins as well as the occasional white wallaby. Not albino but white fur – unique to this place.

This island is like no other place in its pristine magnificence.  IMG_5159.jpg

Everest Base Camp.


Mount Everest with Everest Base camp in the foreground.

This place is so rich in history, stories of survival and death, the strength of the human spirit and great human courage. In particular the inspirational dedication, loyalty and utter dependability of the brave Sherpas, who made climbing Everest possible. I am drawn to return to the Khumbu, which I shall do in 2018.
