Danger! Ice Kills

Posted in Animals, Landscape, Travel at 9:00 am by Warren Williams

As temperatures continue to fall, the landscape around clearly shows winter has arrived. The local lake at Danson Park had almost completely frozen over, with just a puddle of water for a few of the remaining birds.

Frozen Danson Lake

An icy blast reminded us how close we are to winter. With temperatures plummeting down to -5°C, it was inevitable that the lake at Danson Park would start to freeze over.


Elgol, Isle of Skye

Arriving on Isle of Skye for the first time, I took the beautiful scenic drive along to Elgol with impressive views over the Cuillins.

Light of Scotland – Loch Duich

Posted in Animals, Landscape, Travel at 9:45 am by Warren Williams

The surrounding areas of Dornie are filled with mountainous views, and Lochs. The light was dark and moody, but the sun would seep through the clouds, lighting up the valley below. Meanwhile I found an eagle gracefully soaring the cliff tops, but even with my longest lens, was still a fair distance away.


Scottish Road Trip

Heading North West through Scotland, came across a river softly lit up by a street lamp, mixing with a 3min long shutter speed to blur the stars

Following on the A82 towards Glencoe, many deer were seen near to the roads, eyes lit up by the passing headlights.


White Cliffs

Revisited Saint Margaret’s on Cliffe, on a calm Sunday afternoon. My cousin Steven was in tow, and a good photo subject! Beats some of the exile I’ve experienced whilst travelling around.

Hadrian’s Cows

Off the beaten track, behind Hadrian’s Wall, I came across some cows nearby to the country road.

Just the cutest calf, in the perfect setting

Danson Park, Kent

Posted in Animals, General, Landscape, Travel at 1:00 pm by Warren Williams

My first day in England, was a slow one, after recovering from a 12 day rush of sights, attractions and travel.

I’m now living next to Danson Park, Welling, Kent (South East London). This was my childhood park, when I used to live here two score ago.


Monkey Beach, Phi Phi Don, Thailand

Posted in Animals, General, Travel at 3:30 pm by Warren Williams

The following morning, left Railay Bay by ferry, to Ton Sai Bay, Phi Phi Don. I had booked in 2 nights at the Phi Phi Villa Resort feeling like a little splurge, after everything else had been relatively cheap.

A popular afternoon/evening excursion is the sunset cruise, departing at 3pm daily. It includes snorkelling, kayaking, seeing monkeys, a visit to Maya Bay (scenes from “The Beach” movie) on Phi Phi Le. Dinners, and drinks were included, so at 350 baht, (NZ$15) this was a bargain!

Monkey Beach, was the first destination. 2minutes from the pier. We dived into the deep water, and snorkelled up and over the shallow coral, onto the small golden sand beach. We were provided some fruit for feeding them, and watch the manic behaviour of them. One moment they’re timid, and a moment later they’ll go aggressive, especially around the young ones. The tour company also provided a waterproof bag for carrying everyones cameras to the shore…

Ant & Tour Buses

Posted in Animals, General, Travel at 10:00 pm by Warren Williams

After a smal rest from Tonle Sap, paid US$10 for the “luxury” coach, for a faster trip. Fast it was, for 10km. Bang. The front right tyre blew out, and this is when a typical “not-sure-what-to-do” scenario came into effect. Took 45min of patient waiting on the bus, for them to say, please get off, we need to take off the wheel. Well the wheel was already off, and the bus sat precariously on a small jack. After almost three hours waiting, they finally decided to send another bus from the depot just down the road.

During the wait, I was left to photograph ants, and talk to a couple other travelling photographers.

20D + 24-105L

The bus rolled up into the darkness of Phnom Pheng around 9pm. After leaving at just after 12 midday, it was a long time to sit around on a bus! Tomorrow involves an early flight, wait at the airport, before another flight to Krabi around lunchtime.
