Okefenokee Swamp, Georgia

Because of wildfires and drought, I had not been able to take a trip to the Okefenokee Swamp located in Georgia. The swamp is the largest "blackwater" swamp in the United States. This is due to the high peat content, which creates a rich black tannic acid. Because to the near blackness of the water, the reflections along the canal are near mirror perfect. It is quite amazing to be kayaking or canoeing all day among the alligators, not setting foot on dry land for days on end.

High Atlas Mountains in Morocco

The High Atlas Mountains are home to the Berbers, the traditional inhabitants, with a lifestyle that still has many features from centuries ago:- earthen houses, groves of walnuts, irrigation channels that are fed from melting snow, using mules to transport goods and tracks that meander around the mountainsides. Not only is it an opportunity to experience a fascinating history but also to see how the 21st century is impacting both on it and the natural environment on which it is built.

Machinery - Old Farm Machines.

Driving through outback Northern Territory, I came across Barkly Homestead which is a caravan and truck stop. I found these old rusty farm wheels and steam tractors at the front of the homestead and early one morning photographed them. These amazing machines were once used on the fields and paddocks of Australian farms. They were imported from either United States of America or England.

Noumea in New Caledonia

In 1774, James Cook, on board his ship Resolution, discovered a large island in the South Pacific that he named 'New Caledonia', as it reminded him of Scotland. Today, New Caledonia is a country of great contrasts, combining a distinctive Melanesian culture with South Pacific charm and a modern European lifestyle. Outlying islands such as the Isle of Pines and Amadee Island can be reached by sea and air.

Animals - Farm - Sheep and Cattle.

I have images of sheep before giving birth to their offspring and then tending their newborn lambs as well as cute lambs at play and resting. Cattle are also included with supplementary feeding in a paddock and drinking at a water trough, both just after a drought had broken but before the farm paddocks started producing feed. More images are available to view by either searching or viewing my complete collection.

Bhutan highlights

Bhutan is very different to the other countries of south Asia with its low population density, tree-clad mountains and a traditional lifestyle that has been maintained by the country's rulers. Today cell phones and the internet may have arrived but still people wear the traditional gho and farm traditional crops. The country's focus on the environment and gross national happiness is evident where-ever you travel in Bhutan.

Tigers Nest monastery in Bhutan

Tiger's Nest Monastery or Taktshang Goemba, or Paro Taktsang, is one of the symbols of Bhutan. Located in the Paro Valley, not far from the international airport, was originally built in 1692 but has had to be rebuilt after a fire destroyed it in 1998. This Himalayan Buddhist temple complex involves a trek up the mountainside to reach it, although part of the trek can be made on horseback if so desired .

Tangalooma Wrecks, Moreton Island

Tanglooma Wrecks is made up of 15 vessels deliberately sunk to make a breakwall for smaller craft in around 1963. The wrecks are located a short walk up the beach from Tangalooma Island Resort. They are close enough to swim out to from the beach, though there are strong currents at times. The wrecks have provided a wonderful habitat for fish life, including crayfish and resident wobbegongs. They sit only a few meters under the water and therefore make excellent snorkelling adventures.

Senior citizens

Chronological age and functional age are not necessarily the same. My images show that senior citizens generally are very active after retirement. Social activity contributes to the well-being of the elderly (as well as of those of other ages), and there are many opportunities for such activity. However, research has found that happiness in old people is not proportional to activity. Take a look also at my lightbox Grandparents and their grandchildren!

The main range walk in Kosciuszko National Park follows the Snowy River valley from Charlotte's Pass to the base of Mt Kosciusko. A short detour takes you to the summit of Kosciuszko before the spectacular walk into Lake Albina and along the main range. A second detour into the Blue Lake is worth it before descending to the Snowy River and back up to the tree line at Charlotte's Pass.
