Much more awesome than worrying about some sort of allegedly super bowl
The morning sun reflecting off Lake Victoria
We spent our last morning in Uganda on Lake Victoria. The early morning sunlight reflecting on the waves made the entire lake seem as if it was made of liquid gold.
Chimpanzee vocalizations in Kibale National Park, Uganda.
Mountain Gorillas at Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
After making the long journey to the picturesque Bwindi National Park (tightly clutching our gorilla tracking permits), and hiking down 600 metres to the valley bottom where the Mountain Gorillas were busy eating their breakfast we got to spend 1 hour (which was definitely not enough, but is all that is allowed) with the amazing...

A day with my closest living relatives…
Which would be chimpanzees of course! I am in fact 98% chimp... and so are you. Can you see the resemblance? Its like looking in a mirror that is 98% accurate! Taken in Kibale National Park, Uganda

Uganda teaser pic
So far I have taken over 2500 pictures. But the internet here is too slow for me to upload much, and you probably want me to go through the mountain of pictures and only show the ones worth showing (who needs to see 75 almost identical pictures of the shoebill?) So for now enjoy this... Continue Reading →
Biting off more than you can chew

Symphony of Fire
It used to be called the symphony of fire, now it is called the celebration of light which sounds like Christmas to me. Thankfully it is still a bunch of fireworks set off to music.

Pictures of my recent trip to Gwillim Lakes in Valhalla Provincial Park: The Locals were very friendly… …If a bit skittish. But don’t let the pretty pictures fool you the weather was bitterly cold (just above freezing!) cloudy and wet. But despite the miserable weather the place is absolutely stunning! Here are the rest of... Continue Reading →
Out of the wilderness
I am back from my camping trip to Gwillim lakes. My concerns about fires were completely unfounded; despite the fact that it has been very hot and exceptionally dry for most of the summer, the one week I go camping it was wet and cold. Very, very, cold. Much colder than any August should be.... Continue Reading →

Expect more pictures posted here, and a new site devoted entirely to my photography (hopefully soonish). UPDATE: And here is a different version (made with a Velvia preset in Lightroom):
