Photographing the Night Sky: High ISO & the Pentax K5

Saturday night in Hobart was one of the clearest skies I’ve seen in a long time – and I’ve been keeping an eye out lately :) so I packed the thermals & down jacket and headed for the top of Mt Wellington, where the temperature hovered between 0 & 1 degree (-6 with wind chill apparently!)… Read more →
Russell Falls – Tragedy Strikes!

Russell Falls – Tragedy Strikes!

Tragedy has struck at Russell Falls – a couple of Sassafras trees have fallen right across the front of the viewing platform, meaning budding photographers are going to have to walk that extra little bit further to get nice waterfall shots up at Horseshoe Falls… The falls are full and fast flowing right now, so it is a great time to visit Tassie’s forests & waterfalls… Read more →

Thank You Hobart – From the Kids of Fukushima

Many of you will remember that last November Midori and I staged an exhibition in Hobart to raise funds for survivors of the North East Japan Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Crisis. The response from the people of Hobart was heart warming, and we estimate approximately 1000 people visited the Waterfront Pavillion over the seven days the exhibition was on, and in the end we raised $4330… Read more →

Fukushima Memorial March 8, 2012 – Hobart

Today in Hobart Greens Alderman Bill Harvey organised a gathering in rememberence of the triple disaster in Japan which occurred one year ago Sunday.
