Photos from 2013.

Here we go again. Another year bites the dust. This has been a strange year. I started it off in Japan skiing in Niseko, Hokkaido.

At the end of the Japanese trip, I took my yearly visit to Osaka castle to photograph the birds around the grounds. This Grey Heron is usually found in the pond below the castle.

Back in Australia, I headed north and took some surfing photos along the way.

Boomerang Beach

Further north around Laurieton, I shot this photo of a Yellow-tailed Black-cockatoo walking out the headland at Dunbogan.

Heading into Queensland on the way to Mundubarah, I stopped in at Ban Ban Springs and got some great shots of the Red-backed Fairy-wrens.

Then back south to the Kosciusko National Park for the winter.

My camp at Jacob’s River

During which time I took a trip to the beach for a bit of a holiday and got some great shots of Eastern Whipbirds at Gillard Beach.

Then full circle back to Japan.
