So that’s why it’s called Lizard Island

Here’s one from the archives. I was on Lizard Island for a couple of days to shoot an editorial feature for Destinasian Magazine, out of Indonesia. Although a lot of what I shot was the resort itself I couldn’t resist focussing some of my attention on the local residents.

The goannas were everywhere! But a photo of a goanna in a bunch of trees isn’t really a destination shot so I needed something that would hint at the incongruity of where they were found. Enter this guy who was nice enough to pose in the middle of a tennis court for me. Somebody had left a ball on the court and voila I had a destination wildlife shot!
