Journey with Clint as he watches the sunrise over Machu Picchu, mountain bikes down the worlds most dangerous road, sleeps under the stars next to Sudanese Pyramids, journeys deep into the Amazon jungle, treks in Guerilla territory to a lost city in Colombia, walks amongst the ancient ruins of Petra, salsas it up in Cuba, showers under the worlds highest waterfall, treks upon Iceland’s mind blowing glaciers, watches the sunset over Rio de Janeiro
…and much, much more!
On Google+ or Facebook? So am I! :-) … It’s actually where I do most of my interacting while on the road. What I like most about these platforms, is that it enables connecting with a large audience effortless, while making browsing and sharing content with others much easier. Also, it is a fantastic way to stay connected and up to date anywhere and everywhere on your smart phone.

Monk in the light
A monk kneels in solitude deep within Tham Poukham Cave. One of my all-time favourite photos.
The sun rising over Bagan, Myanmar.
Bagan is situated in the dusty central plains of Myanmar, and is arguably one of the worlds most mesmerising sites. In the small area of Bagan Archaeological Zone, there are approximately 2,200 temples. Yes, absolutely astonishing! Though from the 9th to 13th century when Bagan was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan. During it’s reign, the area housed over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries.
This photo was taken from the top of Shwe San Daw Paya, one of the larger temples in the area....
Pak Ou Caves in northern Laos is located 25 kilometers from it’s closest city Luang Prabang. It is revered to be one of the most holiest sites in Laos, resulting in grand pilgrimages from all corners of the country. The caves are famous for their hundreds of Buddha sculptures, and the amazing view that overlooks the Mekong River.
The photographs below I took from the local village. The sun had just set and the sky was lighting up a gorgeous purple and orange colour. For these two panoramas, I took my tripod and waded out in the Mekong...
30 kilometres south of Luang Prabang in northern Laos, enshrouded in the jungle is a beautiful cascade of small waterfalls and dozens upon dozens of bright turquoise lagoons, called Tat Kuang Si. Consisting of many different levels, the upper begins as a huge 60m waterfall broken up by large golden coloured boulders. This then disperses throughout thick enshrined jungle in which the sun penetrates only occasionally to lighten up the many turquoise pools that cascade down the steep sloped mountain.
Tat Kuang Si Falls is also home to the...
Far up in northern Thailand lays the little town of Sukhothai, which is home to some of Thailand’s best preserved ruins. The world heritage site and historical park of Sukhothai, covers approximately 70 square kilometres of land, encompassing 193 ruins that consist of palaces and temples. Some of which are amazingly preserved.
Sukhothai is pretty dusty and can be extremely hot depending on the time of year. However the 6 – 7 hour bus ride from Bangkok is definitely worth the effort – you won’t be disappointed! There...
I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve last posted. But what can I say – I’m enjoying myself :-)
Good news though, I haven’t been completely unproductive in the photography world. My NEX-7′s shutter has been working overtime, and taken several thousand photographs in which I’ve post processed the majority. It’s just getting them online that’s the hard part. So for now here are some of my favourites from Bangkok.
Wat Pho, Bangkok
In the center of Bangkok is one of the most...
On the latter end of my long haul cycle across Europe last winter, I made sure I took the detour to visit Turkey before returning to Australia. What a fantastic decision that was. Having a little bit of an idea of what to expect, I was not disappointed.
Heading straight into Istanbul that spans both the European and Asian continental division, I was immediately awash with culture, gorgeous architecture, busy streets and let’s be honest – delicious food! Shacking up in the old town of Fatih, I was in close proximity to most of the...
With the new wave of full-frame sensor cameras that have recently hit the market, I was thinking about upgrading from the Canon EOS 7D that I travelled through Europe and backpacked northern Africa and the Middle-East with, and get my hands on the new Canon EOS 5D mark III. A magnificent, but heavy beast with the body alone coming in at 1kg. With the addition of 3 lenses, tripod and other photography equipment that I’d be taking, my shoulders started to ache just thinking about it. It made me think back to those long hours walking in the...
I really don’t mind sounding like a broken record on this subject, so I’m going to say this with a grin…
“Here I go again!”
Yep, I have in my grasp another one-way ticket! My first one-way passage sent me barrelling into Latin America in 2007/2008; the second to North Africa and the Middle-East for 2010; my third was recently when I froze my ass off cycling across the European continent, and now this ticket in my hand will send me hurdling towards Asia and beyond.
Starting just around the corner at the beginning of...
