Before our Great Sea Reef expedition started, we were asked by Patricia Mallam of WWF South Pacific what we wanted to photograph. #1 on our list was the most complicated, and I thought, better blurt it out now and hope for the best. I told Patricia we wanted to do […]

Lake Eyre 2 – Birdlife and Pelicans in the Outback

Our first activity after getting our campsite nicely setup and cozy, was to take a 2 day aerial flight to see what the flooding looked like from the air, and to look for pelicans. With water from Queensland seeping into the normally dry outback country, the pelicans found rich waterways and feeding grounds. How they know where water in the […]

Aerials, Slash and Burn, Seaweed Farming, and Pearl Farmers After Office Hours

11 – 15 May 2009

Our pilot was none other than Jewelmer’s boss JB, as Jacques Branellec is fondly called. Upon hearing of approaching bad weather in the coming days, he immediately offered to fly us around the pearl farm and neighboring islands. He had the two back doors of the 8-seater helicopter taken out for better photos, […]
