I am on my way home from a three-week trip to Australia’s Cape York Peninsula on assignment for National Geographic magazine.  Believe it or not, there are still places in the world without easy internet access and this was one of them.  Now that I am back in contact, I will share some new images from the trip here and via my Instagram feed over the next week or so.

This ongoing project for Nat Geo has the goal of documenting the landscapes and unique biodiversity of this remote part of Northeastern Queensland.  Last year I made two expeditions here in the dry season, and I now returned to cover what it looks like in the wet season, which looks dramatically different in places.

Above is an example shot from a low flying helicopter:  This is Piccaninny Plains Wildlife Sanctuary, where I photographed the parched dry landscape in September.   Now the same area is dotted with potholes full of water while storm clouds with more water loom above.

You can look back at my Instagram feed to see earlier shots from Cape York in the dry season, and stay tuned for some more new photos over the coming days……
