I bought my first DSLR (i.e. 'professional') camera in 2008. I thought photography would be a great vehicle for me both to explore my new surroundings and to tap into something creative.  Atop the mountain peaks of Jasper and deep within the the tranquil forests of Tasmania, I've carried my Nikon on most travel adventures since then. Here are some recent photos taken around Australia, North/Central America and Asia. I don't do any editing (because I'm not good at it!).
