Alhama De Murcia - Semana Santa 2017

Spain is known especially for its Holy Week traditions or Semana Santa. The celebration of Holy Week regarding popular piety relies almost exclusively on the processions of the brotherhoods or fraternities. These associations have their origins in the Middle Age, but a number of them were created during the Baroque Period, inspired by the Counterreformation and also during the 20th and 21st centuries. The membership is usually open to any Catholic person and family tradition is an important elem

Mossman Gorge

Nestled in the World Heritage Listed Daintree Rainforest, Mossman Gorge contains the oldest, continuously surviving rainforest on earth. Just one hectare of the 120,000 hectare forest can contain over 30,000 species of plants and animals.

Isle of May puffins

Around 90,000 Atlantic puffins (Fratercula arctica) breed on the Isle of May, Firth of Forth, Scotland. The 1-mile-long isle is a National Nature Reserve and an important breeding colony for these and other seabirds. Puffins spend much of their time fishing for small shoaling fish, such as sandeels, but come onshore to lay their eggs in burrows dug in soft soil in April-May. Once the eggs hatch, the adults bring beaks full of fish to the burrow to feed the pufflings, which fledge in June-July.

Isle of May razorbills

As one of the rarest auks in the world, the 2500 breeding pairs of razorbills (Alca torda) on the Isle of May are an important stronghold for this species. They are the closest living relative of the extinct great auk (Pinguinis impennis). Razorbills only come ashore to breed, spending most of their time at sea, diving up to 120m to feed on small fish. They pair for life and lay a single egg each year, although less than 70% of chicks survive to fledgling on the Isle of May.

Porcupine Gorge National Park

Covering an area of 5410ha, Porcupine Gorge National Park extends for more than 25kms along Porcupine Creek and includes surrounding open woodland and grassland. The creek has carved an impressive canyon that reveals strata of sedimentary rocks spanning hundreds of millions of years. In the wider section of the gorge the eroding action of the creek has also created the Pyramid, an isolated monolith of multicoloured sandstone rising from the floor of the gorge, shaped as its name suggests.

Suburban Wildlife

Wildlife in the Canberra suburbs. I live across from a pond used to protect the Murrumbidgee from storm water pollution. It proves you don't need to go to exotic locations and sit in hides for days with 600mm lenses to get good wildlife images. I took these shots over 3 weeks on about 7 hourish walks around Stranger pond. These all have wings but other Aussie animals are there too. Some shots were only 100-150 meters from my front door; even the shots of the Egret catching the carp.

With around 45,000 guillemots (Uria aalge) present during the spring and summer, the Isle of May is an important breeding colony for these large auks. Guillemots, or murres, spend most of their time at sea, only coming ashore to breed. They make no nest, but lay a single egg on the bare rock of cliff faces. Bridled guillemots with a white ring around the eye are a polymorphism that represent about 10% of the population on the Isle.

New Zealand is a great travel destination with its mountains, alpine vegetation, lakes, fjords and clear streams cascading down the slopes. Nature is incredibly beautiful; in the park like Zealandia one can admire the native flora and fauna; in Rototua the geysers, hot springs and historic buildings. The cities are easy to visit on foot, people are friendly, and food and coffee are great.

The images in this collection were taken during my visits in spring and then in summer. White flowering trees by the Lake Burley Griffin were a pleasant sight, and the Reconciliation Place featured unique artworks. Canberra is a place of national politics but also of science, research and art. Many buildings, including those of the Australian National University or the Canberra Airport, are modern and often set among the native vegetation.

Eurasian treecreeper

The Eurasian treecreeper (Certhia familiaris) is a small passerine common in woodlands across Europe and Asia. In the British Isles, it prefers broadleaved woodland where it can be seen creeping up tree trunks using its long claws searching for insects in the bark with its long, curved bill. Its upper plumage is brown mottled with black and white, which provides excellent camouflage against tree bark, with a white underside and brown trail, which it uses for support as it ascends the tree.

Cape cormorants

The Cape cormorant or Cape shag (Phalacrocorax capensis) is a seabird endemic to the southwestern coasts of Africa. They breed in large aggregations on offshore islands and the mainland, with nests constructed from seaweed, stems and sticks. Both parents feed the chick, regurgitating food (fish) directly into its open mouth. Photographed in Bettys Bay, South Africa.

Rock hyrax

The rock hyrax (Procavia capensis), also called rock badger and Cape hyrax, is commonly referred to in South African English as the dassie. Like all hyraxes, it is a medium-sized (~4 kg) terrestrial mammal, superficially resembling a guinea pig with short ears and tail. The closest living relatives to hyraxes are the modern-day elephants and sirenians. The rock hyrax is found across Africa and the Middle East. Photographed in Bettys Bay, South Africa.
