So dear blog followers, it’s been no less than three whole months since my last update here – and admittedly,  I do feel quite bad about this.  It was a period packed with activity, from shooting weddings to hiking in the Alps and seeing my work published in National Geographic.  Also, MUSE (which is this really cool camera/spectrograph I’m working on at

In between thesis writing and data analysis, I’m trying to make a little bit of time for photography when the weather is nice… you know, to keep my mental faculties sane, if for nothing else.

Early this morning I headed out to the sea again, this time with my good friend and fellow photographer Armand Sciberras, who dropped me a message late last night to ask if I was up for a sunrise shoot. And shoot we did. Early mornings are truly beautiful. There is something incredibly peaceful about them; you look around and there

Today’s picture takes us back to Noordwijk in the Netherlands. After a day-long meeting at the European Space Agency we headed out for dinner at a lovely restaurant overlooking the beach. I confess I was considerably distracted from my food all the time, as I watched the sun slowly setting beyond the horizon. Then, when least expected, three horses came

Hello from the Netherlands! As you’ll have worked out from that greeting message, I’m away from Oxford right now, having hopped over to the Netherlands to attend a meeting at ESA ESTEC in lovely Noorwijk. And here is a snapshot of the beach in Noordwijk. You will most definitely be seeing more pictures from this trip!
