Myrtle Gully Falls

Myrtle Gully Falls

Myrtle Gully Falls is very close to Hobart and a great place to get some experience photographing waterfalls. It is found on the Myrtle Gully track which begins at the end of Old Farm Road, which is conveniently located right at the rear of the Cascade Brewery, so you can reward yourself with a cold drink after a session on the mountain The walk in from the car park is only 10 minutes or so, and is mostly uphill walking, but on a fairly gentle gradient… Read more →

I recently shot this stunner of a sunrise down at Clifton Beach. It was something of a “slow burner” – quite overcast and grey on arrival, a sliver of pink entered the sky and gradually caught fire over a large part of the sky… Read more →
