 Michaelmas Cay, Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia

Michaelmas Cay, Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia

Michaelmas Cay is one of the most important bird nesting sites in the Great Barrier Reef. There can be as many as 10,000 - 20,000 breeding pairs on the island at one time. Michaelmas Cay is a significant breeding site for ground nesting species like common noddies, sooty terns, crested terns and lesser crested terns. Sixteen species of seabirds are regularly observed. Access is limited to a small roped area on the beach for limited time each day. 

This view of a Brown Booby and the sea birds of Michaelmas Cay was taken during nearly five weeks travelling in Australia and New Zealand (VR Tour to follow soon, stay tuned).

Winter 2015 - Bahrs Landing, Highlands, NJ.

 Bahrs Landing, Sandy Hook Bay, New Jersey

This 360 view shows the point at which the Shrewsbury River enters Sandy Hook Bay. The extreme weather we have had this year causing this tidal estuary and the bay to freeze over. That last happened to this extent about ten years ago. 

The Highlands-Sea Bright Bridge connects Highlands, New Jersey in the west to Sea Bright, New Jersey in the east, across the Shrewsbury River. The eastern terminus is at the entrance to Sandy Hook. 

In October 2012, the new bridge became a life saver for the remaining residents of Sea Bright as the historic storm surge pushed ashore during Superstorm Sandy. After the storm passed, an estimated 90% of the town was said to be wiped out and uninhabitable.

Iceland Outside Inside


The Pipe Organ of Hallgrímskirkja Church in Reykjavik and Skógafoss waterfall in the south of Iceland. State Architect Guðjón Samúelsson's design of the church is said to have designed it to resemble the basalt lava flows of Iceland's landscape. Skógafoss is a waterfall situated in the south of Iceland at the cliffs of the former coastline.
 
 
Harpa concert hall and conference centre in Reykjavík and the Krýsuvík geothermal area on the Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland. Harpa's façade was designed by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. The structure consists of a steel framework clad with geometric shaped glass panels that creates a vibrant display of light, shadow and colour. The geothermal area Krýsuvík consists of several geothermal fields, where solfataras, fumaroles, mud pots and hot springs have formed, the soil is coloured bright yellow, red, and green hues.
