Shoot in Black and White and point the camera towards the ground. We have been out in some awesome landscapes but if the light isn’t doing it, it can still be hard getting a great shot. Still it is always possible to get a photos of something. Saw some great rock art today and tomorrow we hit King George falls. Did I mention I caught my first Barra yesterday. The one I lost was close to the magic 1 meter mark, that thing was a beast, glad it got off though, would have been a shame to kill something so awesome.
The trip will be ending soon, I think I might leave with a tear in my eye. The crew are amazing and work so hard, we don’t do Jack!!! In fact if you asked nicely they might even wipe your bum for you so you absolutely don’t have to do anything.!!!
Had a heli picknick at Eagle Falls today, wooooowww, it was the best.

I have in my hand a list of all the new Nikon gear that is going to be released over the next year. I have to get permission to talk about it from my mates at Team Digital. Will keep you posted, I’m pretty excited. Thanks to Nikon Rumours for posting my comments, it has sent my blog balistic. Cheers

Have had some good and bad light so far on this trip but awoke to an awesome day at Hunter River. The temperature has been perfect hot and muggy, better than cold and wet! Included a pic of the boat for those who unsure what a weapon True North is. It is so awesome pulling up to it in the tenders or landing on it in the heli.
We also have seen some great wildlife like the eagles etc. Had some great sharks just hanging off the back of the boat this morning and expecting to see more crocs later today. Just got back from a flight to Mitchell Falls. Pretty impresive but the light was too harsh for great shots. Still we got out and had a look around before flying back to the boat for a cool drink. I will be dragged from this boat kicking and screaming when we finally dock in Wyndham. I love it and you will too if you are lucky enough to get on for a cruise.
Also the PNG cruise I am doing is trip 1 now as trip 2 is sold out already, such is the popularity of this cruise.

It is just under half way on my trip on True North and the weather is just getting better. Last night we did a group shot lit only by the moonlight. It was pretty good fun as there were probably 50 people on the front of the boat all trying to be still after a couple of hours of serious drinking. Will post the shot later. This trip is a dream, if you have the chance of doing it don’t let that chance go by. Five of the people doing this trip have now booked to do PNG with me next year for more photo fun.
As a side note my post about the new Nikon cameras coming out got put on a Nikon rumours forum, the result over 11,000 hits on the blog in one day. Now that is some serious numbers, you hearing this Canon???

Hi all, well the trip is getting better and better and to think I still have over a week left to go. Yesterday we had two heli flights, one for the sunrise to the top of the mountain at Raft Point and the other over Montgomery reef. The landscape is big epic and Australian, so I love it. True North is a dream come true for photographers, I have never experienced a trip like this before and probably wont again, well till he next trip on this amazing floating hotel. Time to start saving for the PNG trip next year. Markie has been going hard, trying to keep up with him but the guy is a machine. Today he was showing off his swan dive at Kings Cascades!! Will talk more about the trip when we get more internet time. Hope the weather is good back home 🙂
