On 25 April every year, Australians commemorate ANZAC Day. It commemorates the landing of Australian and New Zealand troops at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915.
ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. In 1917, the word ANZAC meant someone who fought at Gallipoli and later it came to mean any Australian or New Zealander who fought or served in the First World War. During the Second World War, ANZAC Day became a day on which the lives of all Australians lost in war time were remembered. The spirit of ANZAC recognizes the qualities of courage, mateship and sacrifice which were demonstrated at the Gallipoli landing.
The landing at Gallipoli was seen as a story of courage and endurance amongst death and despair, in the face of poor leadership from London, and unsuccessful strategies. War correspondents, such as Charles Bean, hailed the Australians for their dash in attack and doggedness in defence and the ANZAC legend was born.
The Holy See
Whilst on assignment in Rome during the recent Papal Abdication + Conclave went out at sunrise a few times to capture sunrises over the majestic St Peter's Square.... got lucky with the light and decided to shoot a few more.
This is the result...

COME FLY WITH ME
Flying has always fascinated me....it's one of the few remaining spaces one can completely detach from day-to-day communication, simply sit back & enjoy some undisturbed time doing whatever pleases.... with a killer view.
Whilst cruising at high altitude the light has amazing clarity & is always changing over incredible landscapes, many of which are very isolated, inaccessible and never get photographed. I really don't understand why so many passengers always put their window shutter down to block out light (ok apart from sleeping) and miss such a golden opportunity to experience how truly majestic this world is when viewed from above.
On a recent trip from Sydney to Toronto via Hong Kong I embarked on a journey to capture as much of this shifting light + landscape as possible. Sydney to Hong Kong was a 9 hour leg, Hong Kong to Toronto 14 hours. No sleep just shoot as much as possible and hope my plan of booking seats on particular sides of each leg would pay off.
Getting the gear on-board didn't prove to be as much of a challenge as first thought. You don't need much to get the camera into the right place and keep it steady.
Footnote: gaffe tape is classed as a restraint and is not allowed on planes......well rolls of it anyway.

THE BIG AUSTRALIA
Morgan Bowman operates a river cruise with a difference; jumping salt water crocodiles.
In the 'top end' of Australia not far from Kakadu National Park (World Heritage listed area) is the Adelaide River, home to the largest of all living reptiles numbering between 100,000 + 200,000 that grow six meters PLUS weighing up to 1300kg.
These prehistoric behemoths are the most feared animal on this continent - Great White Sharks come in a close second in most Aussie's 'shitballs' scale.
You cannot get ANY closer to these beasts in the wild (unless your having a really bad day) Morgan's cruise is like no other - viewing the croc's amongst their wild habitat, up really really close, simply a jaw dropping experience. The bloke in the red cap at 2:36 confirms this.
Large adult saltwater crocodiles eat kangaroos, wild boar, dingos, goannas, birds, domestic livestock, pets, humans, water buffalo and even sharks. Some bear the scars of their encounters - the croc @ 0:55 is missing his front right leg!
No visit to Darwin / Kakadu National Park / The Northern Territory is complete without Morgan's unique MONSTER jumping croc cruise;
