Our accommodation here couldn’t have been more different to the tent where we had stayed on the previous two nights. We were in this location as apparently climbing up Sigiriya rock is ‘a must’ when visiting Sri Lanka. On arriving at the hotel we walked into a huge open lobby area with views of ‘the … More Sri Lanka – Sigiriya
After an overnight flight to Columbo we had a journey of several hours to our first destination – a tented camp just outside one of the National Parks. Our accommodation was simple but perfectly adequate and we saw and heard plenty of birds.. That evening we were escorted from our tent to the dining … More Sri Lanka – Wilpattu National Park
This was the canyon that I was most looking forward to seeing, and it blew me away. A canyon carved out of the rocks by years of flash floods. At the right time of year and day the sunlight throws beams straight down to the ground like spotlights. Words can’t describe it and the photos … More The Wild West Photography Tour – One of the most incredible places on earth
One of our stops along Route 66 was at the town of Holbrook. I was amazed to see what looked like the cars from the Disney/Pixar film ‘cars’. It turns out that the cartoon cars in the film were actually based on these, so I had to get some photos for my grandson, who loves … More The Wild West Photography Tour. Holbrook. Monument Valley.

I got very behind with my blog, so this is going back 6 months to the rest of the USA road trip. The Grand Canyon has been ‘on my list’ for a few years and it’s certainly breathtaking. We did a late afternoon shoot at this next place and got very lost trying to find … More The Wild West Photography Tour. Canyons – Grand and others!
A little general store was a treasure trove of photographic opportunities. As we had strictly limited the photographers on this trip so that they had plenty of teaching time and space, I was not an ‘official’ shooter. This meant that any shots of the models were ‘grab’ shots ensuring that I didn’t get in … More The Wild West Photography Tour. Route 66, 2nd stop.
Lunch at a great little diner was followed by the first teaching sessions at a couple of locations right next to each other. The first was a classic car showroom where I realised that I absolutely love old American cars! The turquoise and white combination in this is just gorgeous, and the addition of … More The Wild West Photography Tour. Route 66, 1st stop.
A quick hop from LAX to Las Vegas and I met up with hubby Damien at our hotel where we were staying for two nights before starting our road trip. As this trip was to be a teaching workshop he wanted that time to adjust to the time difference before meeting the 12 photographers who … More The Wild West Photography Tour. Las Vegas
The wedding in Vancouver was at a perfect time, as I’d planned to accompany Damien on a road trip starting in Las Vegas two and a half weeks later. I took advantage of being on the west coast of Canada to fly down to Los Angeles to spend the middle 4 days with another friend … More Laguna Beach
After a great break on Vancouver island it was time to get back to the city. Dani and I had another beautiful apartment in a slightly different location, but still in downtown Vancouver and within easy reach of plenty of places to eat and drink. One day we went for a hike on some beautiful … More Vancouver Part 2
