What a fantastic time we had on our inaugural Christmas Island Photography workshop in May. I'm pleased to announce that we will be returning in May 2018 for another week of awesome bird, wildlife and landscape photography.
One of my personal favorites was the unexpected find of bioluminescent fungi in the rainforest on Christmas Island. These beautiful fungi are white in daylight and only about 5 cm high and at night they glow with a wonderful green colour, quite an experience in the rainforest at night.
We captured some beautiful long exposures along the limestone cliff coastline.
Oh and our half day out on the water with Hama. We all felt quite adventurous out there as the rain fell and storm clouds came and went and we braved the elements to photograph the birds along the cliffs (its such a different perspective from the ocean looking back to the rainforest clad cliffs) jumping in the water to snorkel with the Spinner Dolphins (you have to be quick to get a shot!) and snorkelling amongst the corals in the shallows. We all came back very exhilarated.
Below is an image of one of the many Frigate Birds that we captured coming down to the freshwater ponds on the island to get a very quick drink. We had such fun watching the flock line up for their turn and then swoop down time and time again.
