They say in Broome you can shake a tree and at least three pilots will fall out. They are everywhere up here, and even the fella who dropped off my hire car was a pilot waiting for a chance to clock up some air-time. I get pretty exceited about small aircraft aviation in Australia, and places like Broome are great examples of why. Helicopters, light aircraft, commercial props and jets all share the downtown strip. Once on the ground you're minutes from the hotel and once in the air you're minutes from some of Australia's best coastal scenery.

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
