Tarkine Coast: Granville Harbour

The Tarkine is known for its wild and rugged coastline as the winds of the “Roaring 40s” batter Tasmania’s west coast. Apart from the very well known town of Strahan, there are mostly only small “shack” towns along the west coast, including Granville Harbour, between Zeehan and Corinna.

I run an annual 5 day photography workshop in the Tarkine, and Granville Harbour is one of the highlights. We are planning a late afternoon session here on Tasmania’s West Coast, and the rugged rocky coastline will make for some great composition opportunities.

Long Exposure Seascapes – Granville Harbour

I have long enjoyed shooting long exposure seascapes, and during the workshop we will discuss the use of filters, in particular neutral density filters to achieve really nice results during dusk shoots. My personal favourite filter is the 10 stop ND, which I used at Granville Harbour to capture the following photos on a brooding, grey afternoon.

The lichen on these rocks is a major feature and greatly assists composition. These two rocks really stood out, and the bleak grey sky was a perfect backdrop.
