Tuvalu

Ocean & Lagoon, Tuvalu
This aerial image of Tuvalu was taken in 2007. We were commissioned by the SPTO (South Pacific Tourism Organisation) to photograph 4 countries in the Pacific Islands (Nauru, Kiribati, Tuvalu & Niue). These images were provided to the Tourism Offices of the individual countries to assist them in the promotion of tourism. 

Tuvalu is one of the countries at the centre of the Global Warming debate and as you can see there is not much protecting them from the rise of sea levels. In the bottom right hand corner of the image you can see the main road on the atoll. Paul was fortunate enough to be allowed to capture this image from the cockpit of the plane when departing.

Greece - Mykonos

HDR image of Mykonos Windmill, Greece
This HDR image was taken on the island of Mykonos in the Greek Islands in 2010. We spent a few days there when shooting images for one of our Cruising the Mediterranean souvenir books.

This image has been tonemapped using Photomatix Pro to give it more impact. Not all images suit this level of tonemapping however we think that it suits this particular image.
