The last couple of days of rain have gotten me thinking about the cooler autumn months which are not far away now. One of the main highlights of autumn for me is the fungi, and I schedule all of my photography workshops through autumn to share this wonderful time of year with people… Read more →
The Vale of Belvoir lookout is a short drive out of Cradle Mountain and on a fine day is one of the few places outside the National Park that you can actually get a glimpse of Cradle Mountain.
During September 2017 there were huge snowfalls across western Tasmania, including Cradle Mountain… Read more →
These Overland Track aurora photos were taken back in November 2015, on the first night of my walk down the track with the Cradle Mountain Huts guided walk. The aurora appeared right on dusk, and indeed it was hard to distinguish the aurora from the twilight glow in my first test shots earlier in the night… Read more →
On my recent trip down the Overland Track I stayed a couple of nights at the “Palace” – the rather large hut on Pelion Plains. The plan was to capture some nice sunrise and sunset shots across to Mt Oakleigh. I have climbed Mt Oakleigh before – but never shot it!… Read more →
Of my many trips to Cradle Mountain I was yet to climb Barn Bluff, something I was keen to rectify on a recent walk down Tasmania’s Overland Track. Barn Bluff is first spotted just beyond Marions Lookout in the distance beyond Cradle Mountain… Read more →
Recently I had the rather unique experience of photographing the Tasmanian Devils in the snow at Cradle Mountain!
My Cradle Mountain photography workshops all include a visit to the wonderful devil conservation park Devils@Cradle, and in early May our visit co-incided with a few flurries of snow… Read more →

Major towns like Deloraine, Devonport and Launceston all felt the force of these floods, and there was of course major damage to infrastructure and natural areas… Read more →
The Marakoopa Cave, along with the nearby King Solomon Cave, is one of the main public access caves in the Mole Creek Karst National Park. The caves have formed in the limestone bedrock over millions of years and are intricately lit up and access is only available on a guided tour arranged at the nearby National Parks office… Read more →
This is a selection of photos of the place I clearly visit the most, Cradle Mountain. Usually on one of my photography workshops but of course in my own time too – there is so much to see and do at Cradle Mountain… Read more →
At the risk of sounding a little behind the times, I have fairly recently discovered the “dehaze” feature in Adobe Camera Raw for Photoshop! A quick google search reveals it was announced around a year ago (eg this article on PetaPixel), but it obviously escaped my attention at the time… For anyone else who may have not noticed, the feature works a bit like a polarising filter in that it really enhances contrast and vibrance/saturation in a really nice way… Read more →
