I am thrilled to hear that my favourite shot from the Madagascar Coast to Coast expedition is going to be the cover shot for the latest edition (July/ August 2014) of Australian Geographic Outdoor magazine. The magazine will also feature an eight page feature article on the expedition. It hits the stands on 17 July so those of you in the Southern Hemisphere make sure you pick up a copy. I will post a scan of the cover when it comes out. Can’t wait.

Standing on an active volcano

Tolbachik volcano

I noticed a tiny figure standing on the edge of the crater and realised it was me (Photo by Emili Xaus Pruna)

Emili, one of the participants in the 2013 Kamchatka photo tour sent me a photo of Tolbachik volcano. He took this photo while heading back to camp after an evening photo session. They had left me behind on the volcano. I wrote about the experience in an earlier post. While looking closely at the photo I noticed a tiny figure on the edge of the crater and realised it was me.

Zoomed into the cropped section shows me standing on the edge of the crater.

Here is a zoomed in version of the photo showing me standing at the edge of the crater taking photos of the lava lake. The photograph below is the shot I was taking from that position.

Sambar stag, Corbett National Park

Sambar stag

He stared at me in dead silence before the clack of the shutter sent him crashing off into the jungle

A young male Sambar stag (Rusa unicolor) seen on an early morning jeep ride in Corbett National Park, India. He stood still long enough for me to get him in focus using my 80-200mm lens before the signature clack of my D700 shutter startled him and sent him crashing off into the depths of the jungle. The Nikon D700 has a noisy shutter and for that reason I don’t think it would be a good camera for shooting wildlife; for everything else it’s awesome.
