Book Published

My first self published book with Blurb Books and in support of the Kokoda Track Foundation is now available.
“Glimpses of The Kokoda Track” is a soft cover book of black and white images evoking the memories of those who have gone before; along a steep and at times difficult trail across ridges and rivers into the dark rainforest of Papua New Guinea. The photos in the book give us pause to reflect on the sacrifices given and hardships endured in the fighting along the track in WWII. LEST WE FORGET.

*Half of any proceeds from sales of this book will be directed to “The Kokoda Track Foundation” - http://www.kokodatrackfoundation.org/ - an Australian philanthropic organization which aims to repay the selfless help given to Australia during World War II by the ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels’ of Papua New Guinea by working to improve the livelihoods of the people of PNG*

I’m pleased to announce my addition to the Zenfolio Pro Team. Zenfolio provides an excellent professional platform for custom photographic websites at a very reasonable price. They have hosted my website for a number of years and I couldn’t be happier with the range of features they offer. I’m looking forward to working with them long into the future.

VSCO FILM - ANDREW PEACOCK

Very happy to be featured on the VSCO Journal alongside excellent adventure travel photographers like Jody MacDonald and Chris Burkard.

As someone who started out shooting transparency film I’ve always been a lover of the slide film ‘look’ especially Fuji Velvia, Provia and Astia and Kodak 100VS. The Adobe Lightroom film presets from VSCO enable me to emulate that look in the digital world and are well worth checking out for your RAW file processing.

More of nature’s beauty in Zion National Park. The winter foliage adds a different look to what in summer would be a very green scene along the Virgin River.

A great set of Antarctic imagery by various photographers

aldelie penguins spend their (austral) winters in the seas surrounding the antarctic pack ice - about 4,000km from their southern spring breeding grounds - where they fatten on krill. the krill feed on phytoplankton beneath the icebergs, but warming waters due to climate change has reduced their numbers by up to 80 percent as the plankton, which are now unable to access cold water nutrients, are dying off.

adelies are the most southern living penguin, but head north as the summer ends to escape the protracted darkness of the winter. a warming climate, however, has meant a reduced northern icepack, and has seen the encroachment of other penguins onto their southern summer territory who previously found it too cold. the adelie population northeast of the ross sea, for example, has declined by 90 percent.

as one adelie expert put it, these penguins face possible extinction not merely by a loss of habitat, but by an unshakable fear of darkness; adelies need light, if only twilight, to forage and navigate, and as comfort against predators. but as they are pushed further south they may ultimately find themselves trapped behind a curtain of polar night for which they have no hardwired strategy.
