Tristan Da Cunha is the remotest inhabited island on the planet. To give you some idea of where it is, have a look at it on Google Maps:,+Saint+Helena&aq=0&oq=Tristan+Da+C&vps=2&sll=-37.105027,-12.277908&sspn=0.310502,0.672226&vpsrc=6&t=h&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Tristan+da+Cunha

Just 38km south-west of this island lies the small, wild and uninhabited island of Nightingale. As with many remote sub-Antarctic islands Nightingale is home to thousands of birds, including the endangered Wilkin's Bunting, Northern Rockhopper Penguin and Atlantic Yellow-nosed Albatrosss.

My life as a scientist has taken me to some incredible places that I thought I'd only ever be able to experience through BBC Nature documentaries. These are the places that fuel my desire and passion for film and thus it is the most natural feeling in the world for me to wander through these utopian landscapes with camera in hand. These are some visuals from my trip to Nightingale Island in September 2012.
