The Red Queen is the current exhibition at Hobart’s world beating museum and art gallery, MONA (the Museum of Old & New Art). The Red Queen is a reference to the Lewis Carroll classic “Through the Looking Glass” and the exhibition runs until April 21, 2014… Read more →
Snug Falls is a nice short walk just a little way south of Hobart. I have been in there once before, and was lucky to have a close encounter with a platypus.
Spring is the Season for Waterfalls in Tasmania
Tasmania is experiencing a very wet and wild spring so far this year and many waterfalls in Tasmania are raging at the moment, so the next few weeks will provide spectacular opportunities for photographing waterfalls and rainforest… Read more →
MONA – the Museum of Old & New Art in Berriedale, Hobart. Sunset tonight from across the water.
The afternoon was quite grey and dull, but a fiery orange sunset burnt the sky briefly this evening resulting in these shots. As with pretty much all sunset photo shoots I shot the above with my ND grads… Read more →

Snug Falls is a great fall just out of Hobart. The town of Snug is around 30 mins by car, and the walk is approximately 30 minutes each way. I visited late in the day for this shoot, and was lucky enough to have a curious platypus keeping me company… Read more →
Hobart is a great city, it really is like the “Wilderness Capital of Australia”. It is situated on the Derwent River, which is a large enough port that dozens of giant Cruise Ships come by every summer, the Antarctic research boats make their home here, and even Sea Shepherd seem to have adopted Hobart as a kind of unofficial home port before tackling the Antarctic whaling fleet every summer… Read more →
Red Ochre Beach and Park Beach are places I’ve been meaning to visit for a little while, and I decided on Sunday it was time to head out that way. Hobart really is blessed with the amount of waterways, peninsulas and rocky beaches in such proximity to the city, not to mention the mountain which means the clouds and sky are always doing something interesting too… Read more →
