Hi all, just a quick update on what's been going on in life.
I've recently moved to Hamilton Island
, a remote island more than 1000km north of Brisbane. You might have seen a couple of the photos I've uploaded, however you've probably also noticed that I've been a whole lot less active. This is because I'm working quite long hours and also the internet speed here is pretty pathetic, which makes loading dA pages with high-quality pictures a nightmare, and makes uploading even more of a nightmare. Nonetheless, there is a heap of photography to be done here, from the landscapes, to the wildlife, and particularly the marine life (Hamilton Island is situated on the Great Barrier Reef). While I'm here I intend to learn to sail, possibly learn to scuba dive, and if I do the latter, I will prbably start doing some underwater photography of the reef etc.
I've also just ordered a bunch of new gear: a D7000 body (one rung up the ladder from my current D5100 with a few extra features that I'mm beginning to need more and more), a Tokina 11-16mm version 1 lens, and also a Nikkor 70-300mm VR lens.
