From the Vault – Crescent Bay

From the Vault – Crescent Bay

There was a time, before DSLR’s, when a Photo Shop was a brick and mortar business located on the main streets of towns just like yours. When chemical processing and dark rooms turned film negatives into our cherished images, and no previews on bright LCD screens illuminated our photo taking. … Read more →

Tarkine: Rainforest and Waterfalls

The Tarkine is a huge area of ancient landscapes, with great landscape vistas from the Waratah-Corinna, and Corinna-Arthur River roads. These drives rival those of the World Heritage Area near Lake St Clair or the Anthony Road out of Roseberry in terms of the views and experience of a truly timeless and unique landscape… Read more →
Mt Rufus at Lake St Clair

Mt Rufus at Lake St Clair

Following on from my previous trip to Lake St Clair and Echo Point we took some time over New Year to visit Mt Rufus, and with a careful eye on the weather websites (Elders usually does the job for me – although lately they have stopped giving forecasts for regional towns and various mountaintops) we picked a couple of days which looked like they could be nice in amongst the fairly average summer Tasmania has been “enjoying” so far this year… Read more →
Lake St Clair

Lake St Clair

Lake St Clair is not just the end of the Overland Track, but one of Tasmania’s greatest buswalking and scenic areas. The rainforest walk from Cynthia Bay to Narcissus Hut, with panoramic views of Lake St Clair and Mt Ida, is a great way to introduce yourself to the park, with panoramic views from Echo Point of Mt Ida & the Traveller Range… Read more →
Tarkine: Arthur River and the Edge of the World

Tarkine: Arthur River and the Edge of the World

The Tarkine is a very large wilderness area in north west Tasmania, covering the land between the Arthur River in the north, the Pieman River in the south, and the Murchison Highway which connects Burnie to Waratah & Corinna. The region is known for sweeping landscapes over Australia’s largest stretch of continuous rainforest, as well as tall eucalypt forest, buttongrass plains and fast flowing rivers, such as the Arthur, Pieman and Rapid Rivers… Read more →
Cape Hauy, Tasman Peninsula

Cape Hauy, Tasman Peninsula

Cape Hauy is another classic day walk on the Tasman Peninsula, on the way to Port Arthur. The walk leaves from Fortescue Bay, and is a little less than 2 hours one way. The views up and down the coast, from Pirates Bay in the north all the way down south towards Cape Pillar and Tasman Island are fantastic… Read more →
Hartz Mountains National Park

Hartz Mountains National Park

The Hartz Mountains are south west of Hobart, the main peaks being Hartz Peak & Mt Snowy, with a ridge called the Devils Backbone running along as a backdrop between the start of the walk and the Pass below the main peaks (Hartz Pass)… Read more →
Liffey Falls, Great Western Tiers

Liffey Falls, Great Western Tiers

Water has to be my favourite subject to shoot. For a dynamic moving image, nothing is better than fast flowing creeks and waterfalls, and the added plus to Liffey Falls is the number of cascades. The main fall itself has a couple of tiers with numerous rocky ledges, dispersing the falling water into dozens of smaller cascades… Read more →
