Fungi along the Overland Track

The last couple of days of rain have gotten me thinking about the cooler autumn months which are not far away now. One of the main highlights of autumn for me is the fungi, and I schedule all of my photography workshops through autumn to share this wonderful time of year with people. Here are...Read More

Overland Track Aurora – November 2015

These Overland Track aurora photos were taken back in November 2015, on the first night of my walk down the track with the Cradle Mountain Huts guided walk. The aurora appeared right on dusk, and indeed it was hard to distinguish the aurora from the twilight glow in my first test shots earlier in the...Read More

Dawn shoot on the Pelion Plains

On my recent trip down the Overland Track I stayed a couple of nights at the “Palace” – the rather large hut on Pelion Plains. The plan was to capture some nice sunrise and sunset shots across to Mt Oakleigh. I have climbed Mt Oakleigh before – but never shot it! After arriving in mist...Read More

The Overland Track stretches 65 kilometers from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair traversing the heart of Tasmania’s World Heritage listed wilderness. The walk contains truly magnificent mountain and rainforest scenery, including Tasmania’s tallest peak, Mt Ossa which is 1617 metres high. Pelion Gap is where the junction of the Overland Track and the Mt...Read More

Mt Ossa and the Overland Track Tasmania

Here are a few more images from our recent visit to the Pelion area of the Overland Track Tasmania. This is undoubtedly Tasmania’s most well known national park, and the Overland Track is one of the most famous multi-day walks in the world. We went into the Overland Track via the Arm River Track, which...Read More
