An ND5 Voyage on True North II

An ND5 Voyage on True North II

Video still from Michael Fletcher's Youtube video featuring True North II See it on Youtube here:https://youtu.be/LGmj6VTxzq4?si=Bqx43h4uQJ0HZGMe Many readers may remember ND5 - Ninety Degrees Five, a collaboration between Les Walking, Tony Hewitt, Christian Fletcher, Michael Fletcher and me. We've been a little quiet for the last few years, but our website (www.nd5.com.au) is still active and we're still active - just we haven't been doing a lot together. And Covid got in the way of our last...

The Tree Near Tolkien Rock

The Tree Near Tolkien Rock

Tree in flooded Awatere River, Middlehurst, NZDJI Mavic Pro 2, f2.8 @ 1/120 second, ISO 100 As we continue to spend time on our passion, it surprises me how often you can find a new way of doing something - like photography. Sometimes it's just a change of attitude or perhaps being influenced by another artist or photographer. It can also be a change or development in technology and there's no doubt AI is really going to move things along (especially with Adobe's new Structure Reference...

What Is a Birrida?

What Is a Birrida?

Birrida, Shark BayPhase One XF 150MP, 55mm Schneider Kreuznack, f4 @ 1/1600 second, ISO 160 What is a birrida? I call them claypans or saltpans, but technically (I'm told), the things what look like claypans or saltpans up at Shark Bay are birridas. Birridas started life as small salt-water lakes between sand dunes when the water level was higher than it currently is. But as the sea level dropped, the source of water disappeared and the lakes dried out to be called birridas! It is quite...

Jewels of the Arctic with Peter Eastway, 25 July to 8 August 2025

Join Peter Eastway on a voyage to Svalbard, Greenland and Iceland!
Description

Jewels of the Arctic

Date: 25 July to 8 August 2025

Aurora Code: GRN048G

Please be sure to book through us to get the most out of the photography component of your voyage!

"My first experience in the Arctic was on this voyage - leaving the deep fjords of Iceland and sailing north to remarkable Greenland and then across to the enigmatic Svalbard. For an Arctic voyage, there is no better introduction."

Sometimes the voyage begins in Iceland, sometimes it finishes there, but whether you start in the north or the south, the locations will be remembered forever.

In Greenland, Scoresby Sund is a labyrinth of deep fjords, majestic glaciers and huge, wandering icebergs. It’s a photographic Utopia. And Svalbard is a photographers’ paradise, a land of towering snow clad peaks, giant calving glaciers and, we hope, polar bears!

But that’s just the headlines. There’s so much more to the Arctic, from sea cliffs sinking under the weight of nesting guillemots, beluga whales rising from the depths, wide open tundra and even a smattering of photogenic buildings and towns. These Arctic locations have it all for the wildlife, landscape and travel photographer (see the itinerary later in this brochure). And our voyage will be on board the Greg Mortimer, one of Aurora Expeditions’ modern and luxurious expedition ships.

And to help you get the most out of your voyage and your photography, Peter Eastway has been invited again by Aurora Expeditions to lead groups of photographers on two voyages to Antarctica on the brand new Greg Mortimer, a purpose-built expedition ship.

There are three ways Peter will assist voyagers who join his photography program.

• He will help you in the field with camera skills;

• He will assist you on board with editing and post-production skills; and

• He will give a series of more formal presentations on photography.
