Tarkine Timelapse – Hellyer Gorge

Tarkine Timelapse – Hellyer Gorge

Thursday May 26, 2016

This autumn I have made a couple of trips to Tasmania’s beautiful Tarkine region, once on my own to shoot and explore and the second trip being the workshop in early May.

The first trip was back in April and one of the locations I spent some time was Hellyer Gorge. Hellyer Gorge is located on the A10 highway between Burnie and Waratah and is a great place to break the drive. There is some wonderful forest to explore – particularly at this time of year when the fungi is out (those photos are to come soon!).

For all those who were wondering just how far it is from Hellyer Gorge to Yolla…

But this evening I spent the night and shot the following sequence of photos as the moon swung through the sky as misty clouds skidded past. The tall eucalypts stood as silent witnesses as of course the timeless forests have done up here for thousands of years. The sequence was captured with the Pentax K3 and the Tamron 70-200 mm and covers around 25 minutes in real time.

I have a lot of new images (but no more road signs sorry) to share from the amazing Tarkine, and news of future photo workshops to be announced soon too.
