Snapshots of Bali – Part 2

Snapshots of Bali – Part 2 Soon after I posted Part 1 of my Snapshots of Bali news filtered through of the devestating earthquake and subsequent tsunami that hit Palu and Sulawesi.  The pictures on TV have been utterly heartbreaking.   With 2,000 people killed and another 5,000 still missing this disaster is one of the deadliest since the massive Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004.  … Read More Snapshots of Bali – Part 2

A supermoon is when there’s a full moon that happens when the moon is … Read More Chasing the ‘super blue blood moon’

Galloway – A photographic portrait

I’m pleased to be teaming up with Allan Wright, a well-known landscape photographer, to showcase a new book he’s published on Galloway.  If you’re a fan of Galloway then read on since I also have free copies of his book to give away to two lucky readers.
