Sunset Hobart

My little go-to spot for sunset is in Bellerive, and a couple of nights ago I noticed this great cloud formation out west and decided it could be worth a quick trip out. Here’s what happened next 🙂 Shot in Bellerive, using my Pentax K1 and a B+W 10 stop ND.  One of my favourite features...Read More

There have been some stunning sunrises & sunsets lately – make sure you make...Read More

Snug Falls

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. Because I was there late...Read More

Hobart & Mt Wellington

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...Read More

Sunset Photos: Red Ochre Beach

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...Read More
