Back from the Pacific

Greetings - I am back from my adventure on Lord Howe Island.  Now, all I have to do is deal with about 2000 images and a large number of emails and I will be back on an even keel.

Lord Howe Island is about 2 hours by plane off the east coast of Australia - and it's total area is much smaller than many farms!  It really does have a wonderful sense of isolation.

Just to get things started - and to set the tone of the tidal wave of natural images that will flow from this trip, here is some video of fish feeding in the shallows of Ned's Beach.  This is not wholly natural as the fish have been fed here for ages - but it does give you a good idea of what the place is like.


Normal service may take a while to restart, and I feel I few late nights at the computer coming on!

Cheers SM
