Travel Photography

The secret to good travel photography is simplicity.

Go Travel!

As far back as 1912, Captain Robert Scott, one of history’s great explorers, realised that photography could complement his travel records in an unprecedented way during his much publicised South Pole expedition. Sadly, Scott died on the return trip, but his photographs survived as a testimony to his bravery. Since then, the interdependence between travel and photography has developed to such an extent that today, they’re almost mutually inclusive. And yet, the one doesn’t necessarily guarantee a good experience of the other.

So, what’s the secret to good travel photography?

Interstellar travel

We’ve long been studying ways to achieve interstellar travel. In the late-Fifties, NASA had Project Orion. This spacecraft would have used nuclear pulse propulsion – a series of exploding atomic bombs – to propel it the distance needed to reach Mars, Saturn and ultimately another star. The British Interplanetary Society studied the possibility of a spacecraft to the stars in the Seventies, called Project Daedalus. Daedalus had the goal of taking no longer than a human lifetime to reach its destination, requiring a speed greater than the capabilities proposed for Project Orion. It would have needed a very powerful fusion

Have barbecue — will travel

Barbecues have come a long way in the past decade — and portable ones are the latest trend.

Alfresco dining, outdoor kitchens and even wood ovens have become the norm in countless backyards, with many Aussies cooking several meals outside each week. Likewise, barbecues themselves — and what we cook on them — have changed dramatically.

One of the biggest barbecue trends right now is the portable barbecue, with models such as the Weber Q and Heatlie Mariner leading the charge. This means we are no longer restricted to the backyard, so more people are packing up the barbecue on

Exploring the stars

Could we travel to this distant neighbour and what problems would we encounter on the way?

Although Proxima Centauri is sometimes referred to as Alpha Centauri C, we aren’t yet sure how it fits in with Alpha A and B. The stars in the binary system orbit around a common centre of gravity, and range from being 1.67 billion kilometres (1 billion miles) to 5.3 billion kilometres (3.3 billion miles) apart due to the eccentricity of their orbit. They’re relatively similar and Sun-like.

By contrast, Proxima is smaller, redder, weaker and much further from the other two stars. Visually it
