Happy New Year

In News & Stuff, Travel, Wallpapers by David19 Comments

What a year. I often take some time around now to sit with my pen and notebook, a cup of coffee, and my thoughts. I’m not big on resolutions but I do like to look back at the year and be grateful, think about lessons learned, and celebrate. This year took me to Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania, before I jumped …

Desktop Wallpapers – Antarctica

In Antarctica, Travel, Wallpapers by David17 Comments

I know, it’s been a while. I hope it’s worth the wait. I stopped putting these out there because I felt I was on the edge of giving you stuff that’s already had so much exposure, or worse, of giving you photographs I wasn’t 100% happy with.

Top, Bivouacked in Antarctica. Not my warmest night ever. Antarctica and the Drake Passage are behind us now. One last day to look through our work together, then we all go separate ways.

Packing For Antarctica

In Antarctica, GEAR, Travel by David40 Comments

If there’s an upside to jetlag, it’s productivity. I was up all night so I packed early. Nothing to do now but sit on my thumbs and wait. On Sunday, Nov. 25, I fly to Toronto, then Buenos Aires via Santiago, then on to Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, the far southern tip of South America. I’ve got a couple …
