Whistling Kites, Adelaide River, NT

Whistling Kites, Adelaide River, NT from Adam Teale on Vimeo.

I just got back from a short excursion to the Adelaide river to see the “jumping crocs”.

The visit was interesting but probably the most amazing was the boat ride back down the river. We were tailed by Whistling Kites which swooped down near the boat and plucked pieces of buffalo meat out of the air (tossed out by our Croc conjuror Sharelle).

video: Canon 550D with Canon f/1.8 50mm test

Watch as I try to find focus with the 50mm f1.8 lens I bought yesterday for my new Canon 550D.

The video features some cool cats.

It was all shot at 1920×1080 25p, ingested as Apple Pro Res LT via FCP and the Canon EOS plugin.
I bought the upgrade to Magic Bullet Colorista II as well a few days ago so I used it to push some colours around in this clip.

And they keep coming!

Continuing on from ep 14 of PPKP ep 15 takes the PPKP team to the mystical village of Zhongdian, a.k.a “Shangri La” high up in the mountains of Yunnan.

As always, make your way over to planetkapow.com for Lachlan’s much more interesting write up on what went down in Zhongdian town.

It’s been a long time coming, but here is the latest Ping Pong Kapow video from Erin, Lachlan & my journey through Thailand, Cambodia, Laos & China in late 2008.

Episode 14 takes us north of Lijang, Yunnan province, up above the Yangtze River to Tiger Leaping Gorge.

Check it out here, or be even cooler and check out our new site PlanetKapow.com and read in much more interesting detail about what we got up to. (Warning – contains graphic images of a pig being butchered, and the occasional/usual swearing.)

Iran Trip 2009 – video

After nearly a year since visiting Iran I have finally cut together a video.
If you get a chance check it out and then book a ticket to Iran!

Iran Trip 2009 from Adam Teale on Vimeo.

In February 2009 I was fortunate to spend 3 weeks traveling in Iran (a.k.a Persia).

In those 3 weeks I got to explore Rasht, Tehran, Shiraz, Persepolis, Maybod, Yazd and along the way I met by some of the most friendly & welcoming people I have ever met.

Iran thank you very much for this incredible adventure!

video: Dude, where’s my Jakkayarn?

I have managed to cut down the material from the bike ride Nicholas and I did from Bangkok to Singapore.

When I can get to some great bandwidth I’ll upload the HD version.

On July 12th 2009 Nicholas Ward and Adam Teale left Bangkok Thailand and rode their bicycles south through Thailand and Malaysia, and after 2100km and nearly a month of riding, made it to Singapore

Here it is via Vimeo:
