Here was the New Years view from the cabin at Hemsedal in Norway with good friends, sunrise at 9:16am
Spent the last two days down on the Surf Coast along the Great Ocean Highway just south of Melbourne. Drove out to Point Lonsdale and took a few photos along the way.
Here’s the arrival/departures terminal at Kiunga Airport in Western Province Papua New Guinea. Only 6 more days until I start my journey back to Vancouver BC and head through this airport to start my ‘round-the-world trip here. I will be flying from Kiunga, PNG to Port Moresby, PNG to Cairns, Australia with a one night layover. Then Cairns to Brisbane, Australia to Los Angeles, USA to Vancouver, Canada and staying there at home for 8 nights before my second leg starts. After Christmas I wil then fly from Vancouver to London, UK to Oslo, Norway and spend 5 nights in a cabin at Hemsedal Skisenter for New Years before heading back from Oslo to London to Singapore and eventually ending up in Melbourne, Australia for a week with my friend Darren to celebrate my 31st birthday in the sun and heat. After that week is done I will then fly from Melbourne through Brisbane on my way back to Cairns with 4 days of relaxation booked to recover from my month of circumnavigating the globe. Looks like it may be time to invest in a few extra memory cards for my SLR.
Another one I took while walking back to the bunks yesterday, just some dried mud with my nikon 10.5mm fish eye and HDRd pretty heavy.
Here is a pic I took in Kiunga a couple months ago. This has almost nothing done to it other than just adjusting the exposure slightly to make it a little darker, I really like this one. I took this with my 18-105mm kit lens from the hotel I was staying at there.
Haven’t added any shots for a while now so I’m going to try and update a little from my travels in the last bit. Here’s an HDR shot from yesterday at the remote camp in Papua New Guinea called Yavo. We are somewhere along the Strickland River about 100km from the Indonesian border and it continues to get hotter as we march in to summer. Yesterday we set a thermometer out in the shade and around 3:00pm it was reading 37 degrees so you can only imagine how hot it is working out under the sun. The humidity has dropped considerably since October and most evenings are clear instead of having thunderstorms every evening. I’ve only heard it rain once since I got here on the 20th of November, it’s amazing weather compared to the first 6 months. Going to be quite the shock going from this to Norway for New Years.
