Jo Quail, our resident cellist and musical score composer for most of my short videos these day has come out with another track ‘Amberay’ which will be included in her new soon to be released album. She sent me this track just after I got back from shooting the Stirlings and Albany with Christian. My initial thought was it would make for a great soundtrack to my Iceland video I intend to create. Then I got impatient and said ‘stuff it’ this is too good to wait for a few months to release so here it is. Such a haunting piece of music which is very powerful when played loud. I’m very privileged to be given access to this music to do as I please. I hope Jo likes it as I don’t think she has seen it yet 🙂
Hope you enjoy it. Crank up the volume and let that Bass mess with everything around you that is not securely fastened down.

Everyone is scrambling to Iceland for the ultimate landscape shooters paradise. But you can get stuff just as nice back home in Western Australia.

We got some great light this morning in Albany. These were some of the most intense light rays I have ever seen. It was cold though, but hey we are in Albany!

Having fun in the Great Southern. Lots of drama in the skys! A little hand held grab from just north of the Stirling Ranges.

My super moon from last month. Not much chop with cloud and a long exposure! View from an overpass in Como.

Isn’t it awesome when you have this location 10 minutes from your front door. Sugarloaf rock never fails to impress and is like a magnet drawing me in when I shoot be shooting other places.

It is official, I will be one of the instructors on the 2015 Luminous Landscapes expedition to Antarctica. I will be on both the first and second expeditions. I am so excited, it will be an amazing adventure. Other instructors include our own Jackie Ranken, Art Wolfe, Charlie Cramer, Joe Cornish, Katrin Eiseman and Kevin Raber.
So who’s coming????
Here is the link to all the information on the Luminous Landscapes website
You can sign up there and in the referral section make sure you put Christian Fletcher. I get extra beer rations if you do and naturally I will share it around!
The greatest thing about this trip is we fly right into Antarctica itself. No crossing the Drake Passage. We have our own BAe 146 to cruise in style. Once there we get straight on the boat and we are into it. No rough seas for this sailor I tell you!!!
So what are you waiting for? Book it now before you find you are just sitting at home looking at the images you could have taken that we all got!!!
