Don't fuck up. by Ubhejane
Don't fuck up.
My colleagues prepare for take off on a mission to capture an errant rhinoceros. This kind of low level bush flying for aerial darting is incredibly dangerous - only a handful of pilots in the whole of Southern Africa are capable of doing it. The last words spoken before take-off: "Don't fuck up."

Milford Sound by Ubhejane
Milford Sound
My sister asked me to paint a view from her recent trip to New Zealand. This is what I came up with - there are details I'd change, not sure about the flat sky but the references I have show it solid blue. Submitted original size for proper scrutiny :D

Acrylic on canvas 16 x 12 ''

It's been an interesting few months since the last journal update. Photos have been coming thick and fast - a sporadic jaunt to Alberta for licensure exams led to a trip to Banff and the Rockies; a road trip round Cornwall last week gave rise to some Caribbean-esque vistas of the Atlantic and yesterday we ventured to London after winning a trip up the Shard. Which is embarrassingly high. A plan to visit Catania later in the year is afoot which sounds exciting not least because apparently they have ice-cream for breakfast. I SAID THEY HAVE ICE-CREAM FOR BREAKFAST.

In London last night we went to the excellent London Jazz Café in Camden where the elegant demigods of South African popjazzafrobeatfusion Freshlyground were playing to an audience of about 200. We were front row and thoroughly entertained. We chatted with the band afterwards and they were extremely personable and friendly - great night out!

Also this last few months has been food food food. Baked goods are everywhere (scones, Nanaimo bars, breads of all shapes and sizes) - and I've been experimenting with a cold-smoker in the garden and am now a purveyor of fine alder smoked salmon and oak-smoked cheddar. Crazy times. Foraging has been at an all time high this year too - many litres of Elderflower cordial and associated derivations have been produced. Our visit to Cornwall generated obscene amounts of culinary pleasure as well - tonka bean delights, the best fish and chips I've ever tasted and nouveau British tapas abounds. Truly it is a great time to be eating in the UK despite the reputation we used to have.

Also mum's the word but I'm organising a photography exhibition which is probably long overdue but it turns out these things take a lot of effort so bear with me!
