There are a lot of hidden gems in Tasmania’s north east. A major one is the Mt Paris dam, on the back road from Branxholm to Weldborough.
The area has a great deal of rich mining heritage, and this dam was built during the 1930′s… Read more →
This very crepuscular sunrise was the highlight of one of my Bay of Fires workshops earlier this year. We ventured down to the famous Bay of Fires Tree and the dawn was very grey to begin with, and the pre dawn offered very little in the way of colour and light… Read more →
We spent a fair bit of time at the Sloop Reef during this months Bay of Fires trip. The Sloop Reef is one of my favourite spots and it was great seeing it under moody grey clouds with steady waves crashing below… Read more →

In the past I have experienced one rather stunning display at Coles Bay as well as a few at Cradle Mountain and now I can add this Bay of Fires aurora to the list too!… Read more →
