Fantastic FNQ photo Friday

I don't get down to Townsville as much as I'd like. It's got a different atmosphere to Cairns, and heaps to see and do - especially for families. One of my favourite views is one that I got thanks to the wonderful staff at Townsville Jupiters.

Right down on the waterfront, I was there on assignment for a magazine and really wanted a lovely shot out over the marina towards Castle Rock. The management kindly let me go up to the roof one early morning to capture this beautiful view. If you never ask you never know!

Go to my website to see more Townsville photos.

Trekking in Nepal

Trekking in Nepal - Images by Paul Dymond

I guess I must be in a photo mood! When I cant think of anything deep and philosophical (!) to say then I think it's just better that I shut up and let the pictures do the talking. This slideshow (FLASH based I'm afraid for those of you on an iPad) is of a month I spent trekking in the Himalayas - a truly life-changing experience as I'm sure anybody whose done it can attest to. One of my goals in life is to take my boys trekking in Nepal and show them this beautiful country.

Hokkaido - so much more than the cranes!

Hokkaido - Images by Paul Dymond

A friend just sent me a link to another photographer running wildlife photography tours in Hokkaido. The scenery up there is truly beautiful and the wildlife indeed stunning. But the island has so much to offer at any time of the year. I just thought I'd offer up some pics that show different facets of my home away from home.
