mystery big cats of Iriomote island

What the heck is the ‘Yamapikarya’?

A sense of adventure has always been something burning away inside of me.

Astrophotography

Astrophotography, battling the forces of light and noise.

Astrophotography can be one of the most rewarding, and stress inducing, of all photographic genres. I guess in a way it reflects our human curiosity as to where we are, globally, in the grand scale of things, notably within space. Now I’m not a complete fanatic when it comes to astrology. I know, as most people do, a few names of a smattering of constellations. I can find the points of the compass aiding celestial navigation, maybe just one of […]
