water hole

Trucks frolic next to an uninterested excavator.


A party of excavators refresh themselves at a watering hole.


An excavator snaps up a large boulder in its powerful jaws.


Another excavator finds a rock underwater, but it puts up a fight.


Tourists view excavators up close during a controversial boat tour through their habitat.


Helicopters hide their extra rocks (the clumps of white) in hillside crevices, safely out of reach of the ground vehicles roaming nearby.


This team of experts is examining truck leavings for clues to their behaviour.


A helicopter carries away a person, likely mistaking them for a rock. Luckily, as is usual in these cases, they were later recovered unharmed… although a fair distance away from where they started.




Lusca is a fascinating cryptid. It it said to dwell in the blue holes of the Bahamas. Still and tranquil pools of blue but home to the most sinister of cryptids, Lusca. Some say Lusca is part shark-part octoptus. 

Some eye-witnesses say Lusca is around 200ft in length. Although there have been few survivors. 

The Island of Andros in the Bahamas is home to many of these blue holes and curious people have tested out a theory that they all connect to each other deep under the sea by using dyes. This means that Lusca may not be in one hole at one time, it can travel. 

For me this is one of the most terrifying of cryptids, able the strike from great depths and in complete silence, you never really know when Lusca may be coming for you. 

“Storm Window”

This storm brought some interesting cloud formations and a few decent lightning bolts. There was a very bright flash during this exposure, but that bolt was hidden by clouds, so I was happy catch a visible bolt in the same exposure.
