Geysers & Frozen Iceland Waterfalls


Touring the Golden Circle will bring you face to face with Iceland waterfalls and geysers. Gulfoss is a thunderous monster, even when half frozen. Cascading through the Hvita canyon, it carves it’s way through 100ft of rock, creating a gaping chasm over 60ft wide. The path leading down to the viewing posts was a pure

In the Golden Circle – Rift Valley at Þingvellir


To make the most of a short stay in Iceland, I remember opting for a Golden Circle tour, taking in three of the most iconic sights around Reykjavik – Thingvellir National Park, Gulfoss Waterfall and Geysir herself. Thingvellir was first on the list. It’s a huge rift valley that sits on the slowly widening ridge between

Into the Blue, Faxafloi Bay


It’s been a long time since I looked at these photographs. I first travelled here quite a few years ago, and going through these old photos keeps bringing back waves of nostalgia. I only spent 4 days here, but the land of ice and fire has held me in it’s snare ever since. It’s a

The Foothills of Mt Shasta


The north of California heralded the end of my California road trip. What better way to leave this beautiful state than with a visit to the enigmatic Mt Shasta. Imposing and mysterious, Mt Shasta dominates the skyline for hundreds of miles. The last in a chain of dormant volcanoes, it’s snow covered peak towers above the

Bodie Ghost Town


Descending from the wilderness of Sequoia National Park and Yosemite, we made our way through the scrubland to a different kind of wild place. Nestled between the backbone of California and the plains of Nevada lies the isolated Bodie ghost town. Once home to countless brothels, saloons and murders, Bodie is a living relic that symbolises

The Canyons – Yosemite


Leaving the secluded King’s Canyon behind us, we rolled the van to California’s hotspot. Yosemite is what everyone expects – glorious but crowded. The busy valley offers spectacular vistas to El Capitan, Half Dome and Yosemite Falls, but there is more. To get a real sense of this national park, get onto the trails and

The Canyons – King’s Canyon


Few people travel to California without making the pilgrimage to Yosemite. Yet even fewer people make the time to visit it’s breathtakingly beautiful sister, King’s Canyon. Both these landscapes are pristine U-shaped valleys, covered in towering pine forests. We approached King’s Canyon one afternoon, driving down the magnificent Highway 180. It’s a winding mountain round that opens up

Moro Rock & Tokopah Falls


After exploring the majestic Sequoia groves, we climbed the 400 steps to reach the summit of Moro Rock, a granite dome that rises above the forests. We reached the top just before sunset, with views to the snow capped peaks of the Sierra Nevadas. They slowly turned golden in the days final hours. We spent

Sequoia NP California

Bears & Giants, Sequoia National Park


The mountains of the Sierra Nevada are a welcome relief after the blistering heat of the Californian interior. Sequoia National Park is home to some of the largest trees in the world, the Sequoias. They are truly gargantuan. Their yearly bark renewal could form a 60ft tree with bark 1ft thick! The main road winds

California Big Sur

Plaskett Creek & Cambria


As I headed south from Big Sur, the misted mountains and lush forests gave way to golden grasslands and clear blue skies. For two days I drove up and down these winding cliff top roads, exploring charming towns and sunset beaches. We sipped coffee and wandered around craft shops in the little town of Cambria,
