Our travels continue to provide excellent opportunities for photography. The best of these images will appear on this website in due course.
In 2009, our main trip was a cruise through the Chilean fjords to Antarctica in January / February. We came back with lots of fabulous images: beautiful scenics of the southern continent, lots of good cetacean shots (including the rarely-photographed Arnoux's Beaked Whales – a group of six of them!), seabirds and, of course, penguins.
We also spent some time in the Mediterranean, upgrading our images of Mediterranean plants but also adding some interesting shots of dolphins in the Med. Sue managed several dives, and has a range of excellent underwater images available.
We've also been back to the North Cape of Norway, adding lots more images of the Norwegian fjords and some of the characteristic northern plants of the area. Sue managed some diving in Tromso, adding several northern species to her cold water portfolio.
Sue meanwhile has been adding lots more digital images of the marine life of north-west Scotland, including some excellent photographs of a range of rarely seen and even more rarely photographed species, from the Diminutive Goby to the Red Band Fish. If you need any marine life images from this area, please ask: she's almost certain to be able to help.
Plans for 2010 are now coming together well. Sue will be heading back to Tristan da Cunha, and more photographs from above and below the waves around the remote island in the South Atlantic are bound to emerge. Michael will be cruising to the Caribbean, through the Panama Canal and south to Lima in Peru in early 2010. We'll both be exploring Maderia and the Canary Islands again on other cruises, and making a return trip to Iceland and Greenland. Full details of these cruises are available on
